Today I finished my 1000 cranes! It’s taken over 3 years of on off crane making. With the majority done during lockdown (around 600). I’m pleased it’s done! But now what do I do with my hands…
We didn’t end up getting the car we had our eyes on today, we did book a hire car though so Devon trip is definitely on!
The rest of the day was very chilled out. I made more process on my fiction book and we played some Minecraft together.
Throughout lockdown Nic and I have been slowly working our way through all of the Marvel movies. I’m loving them so much! We only have about 5 more to go so it’s very exciting. Tonight’s was Spiderman Homecoming.
I try to always have one biography, one fiction and one non-fiction book on the go, so I can switch between them depending on my mood. My current non-fiction is taking me a while to get through as it’s quite heavy. Thinking Fast and Slow is all about how the mind comprehends different types of information. It’s already very interesting, but I think I’ll be reading it for a while!
It is hot again today in London. I tried doing speed training this morning but it was already far too hot for me I quickly couldn’t hold my fast pace! The rest of the day was spent working with all the windows open… It’s so waaaaarm.
As of today I’ve now folded 710 colourful paper cranes! Just 290 to go… I make them in meetings to keep my hands busy so I can concentrate. I’m not sure what I’ll do once I finish, but I need to think of something as the end is in sight!
There were police in our street today! We’re not sure why but I ended up painting my nails whilst the drama unfolded… I’m pleased my nosying resulting in me ticking off something from my todo list, even if I didn’t come any closer to finding out what was going on…
It is HOT today in London, well compared to recently. It really threw me out on my morning run. I was aiming to do 9 miles but ended up coming back early and doing 7. I was exhausted by mile 3!
The rest of the day was chilled out with a lot of reading. I’m loving Purple Hibiscus right now. I bought it after listening to the Ted Talk “The danger of a single story” which was spoken by the author. I highly recommend the book and the Ted Talk!
Our boiler was fitted today! All the work is now complete and I’m super happy. It was really quick and the British Gas guys were all great. I’m a happy bunny and now secretly looking forward to winter…
