I DREW this while at Horbury Street Fair, where I was signing copies of my local
booklets on the Rickaro Bookshop stall. This was as far as I got with my drawing
of the stalls opposite because it soon started to get busy and I had plenty of people
to talk to. That’s The Kings Arms in the background, one of Horbury’s old pubs but
the new roof, new windows and inviting pub trimmings such as awnings and café tables
disguise its four-square Georgian character.
Barbara and I are doing a bit of healthy eating - well we are when we’re not away
in Cumbria or - as we were this week -Whitby, tempted by full English breakfasts
and fish and chips. I’m not overweight but my weight distribution could be improved
as I’ve got a bit of a donut of surplus fat around my waist in contrast to shoulders
and upper arms which aren’t as muscular as they could be.
At least the healthy eating seems to be working and I’ve lost about 3 lbs over several
weeks. Apparently the first place you lose weight is from the hidden fat around your
waist. All I need to do now is to build up my biceps a bit . . .
