Our blogging prompt today was "If you could travel in time for just one day, where would you go and what would you do?"

I found this quite a difficult one. I could think of lots of places I'd like to be and people I'd like to spend time with but I think the one thing I'd go back and do is pay more attention to the details in my childhood. I was born in Scotland and moved to South Africa when I was 3. South Africa was a beautiful place to grow up. I've never been good at journaling and, unfortunately, lost a lot of my photos when we moved back to the UK in 1991 so I'd like to be able to go back and capture those memories again.

I have also taken some photos for the TRAVEL topic. My car is the main way I travel (or my feet!)

Ready to go!

However, when I think of Travel, I also think of the holidays we've had with family in Chicago, great times and so relaxing. I would jump on the plane as soon as summer holidays start, if I could, and go back for more of the same! So a few photos from our last trip in 2006

Finally, and totally unrelated, we got our Wii Fit today. Claire, Emily and I have all set up our profiles and started our workouts. I did half an hour this afternoon and I'm hoping it's going to help me with my weight loss. I don't enjoy exercise at the best of times but, I have to admit, that I felt quite pleased with myself when I'd finished the 30 minutes. Now I've just got to start the diet to go with it ;o)

Till tomorrow xx
