Walking for miles and miles in my garage

This week I made a big decision whilst standing in my garage. I have spent the last few months during the good weather walking around in the lovely countryside and now the weather is getting a bit colder and wetter I have been wondering how I can still get my daily activity but in a warmer, drier location. Then it hit me, my garage is too small to fit my car in and is just used to store items that I really should have sorted through and thrown out years ago. So, here is my plan.

Next weekend I have organized for Skip Hire Swansea company http://pendragoncarmarthenshire.co.uk to deliver me one of their skips and I am going to sort through all the items and throw away the bits I don’t need, which to be honest with you will probably be all of it! I am so glad that I made the decision to go for a skip otherwise I would have been making a crazy amount of trips to the tip and would have spent weeks trying to get all of the dust and dirt out of the car.

After all of the clutter is gone and the dust cloud has dispersed (looking at the amount of stuff in the garage I am guessing this will take a while) I am going to have some MDF added to the walls of the garage which I can then cover with lining paper and paint. I’m not sure what color to paint it yet, I will have to see what mood I am in at this point – may be a nice lilac color or perhaps a sunshine yellow. Too many choices. Once the walls have been decorated I have planned to have some nice adhesive laminate floor tiles put down on the concrete basis.

Then the real fun begins. I have bought a small cross trainer and an exercise bike. I found a great deal online. I can then pop out to the garage during the colder months, pop on the electric radiator and walk or cycle for miles in a warm and dry environment. I might even get the small tv that is currently on top of a pile of rubbish at the back of the garage, fixed to the wall so I can watch some of my favorite films whilst I cycle away. I am really excited.
