Pilates

lf you’ve let your body sag,

Pilates ought to be your bag,

Results are great and outlay small,

On your back in the village hall.

This was on a card l received - its one of Pam Ayres. And it has a cartoon of a lady - on her back with her legs over a fit-ball.

[/quote] Carole, l have been having one-to-one Pilates sessions - once a fortnight [because of cost!] - lts made such a difference to me - l am a ‘New Woman’. l have done Yoga/Pilates for years - in a class. But after hip and knee replacement ops l was left very weak.

lf you cant get up and down off the floor - then do those exercises on your bed. The standing ones l started off holding on to my rollator - but now can stand quite strongly.

Here is another couple of Pam Ayres poems.

You have to dance while you are able,

Do the Can-Can on the table,

Grab each chance that flashes past,

For life goes by so deadly fast.

l bought myself a Wonderbra for fourteen ninety-nine,

lt looked so good on the model girl’s chest and l hoped it would on mine.

l took it from the packaging and when l tried it on,

The Wonderbra restored to me all l believed had gone.
