We found some glossy mushrooms on our lunchtime walk today. I equal parts wanted to touch it and not touch it… Look how slimy yet satisfying they look! Pretty low mood today but tomorrow is a new day so hopefully I’ll feel a lot better then.
Went for a great run this morning! 5k I’m under 28 mins. I’m finally enjoying it again and able push myself a bit, even if it was chilly! After work then dinner, I watched Peoples Question Time where Sadiq Khan and other London counsellors are asked questions from the public. It was very interesting andContinue reading “12/11/20 – Running and politics”
I went to the dentist today! It was mostly good news, turns out you can over brush… who knew. I used to never smile with my teeth, I was so self conscious. I’m not sure when I changed but now I can’t smile without it being a big cheesy grin! Life is a lot easierContinue reading “11/11/20 – Cheeeeeeese”
I’m onto book five! I’m slowing down now, as they get a bit meatier (and the story gets more frustrating!) I’m a quarter of the way though after some evening reading the last couple days. I went on a run this morning! I could not be bothered but then I managed to run a fastContinue reading “10/11/20 – Light bedtime reading”
Today Nic and I made a pack lunch and went to the park to eat, just to shake things up a bit. We ended up watching these parakeets for about 15 minutes trying to work out what they were waiting for that was inside that hole… They kept fighting over it but it looked likeContinue reading “09/11/20 – Parakeet watching”
Another autumnal walk today to get us out of the house. I wasn’t in the best mood today… But it was a nice walk none the less. I spent most of the rest of the day napping then reading more Harry Potter (onto the fifth book!) Let’s hope tomorrow will be better after a goodContinue reading “08/11/20 – Autumn colours”
I’m so happy to be back reunited with the wonderful Mariana after her three months in Portugal then two week quarantine!! We were finally allowed to meet up for a socially distanced walk in the Autumnal sun with a chance to say hello to her adorable shiny new baby! It’s filled me with so muchContinue reading “07/11/20 – Chilly walks”
Staring out the study window today pretending I’m on holiday rather than in Thornton Heath… A girl can dream! I actually had a really productive day today, week in fact, at work. I got so much done that I’m really happy with. Onto the weekend!
Since we can’t hang out with any friends, Nic and I decided to get the fire pit out instead! We made jacket potatoes and finished them off on the fire whilst drinking mulled wine. It was honestly one of my most favourite evenings of lockdown! The stars, the fireworks in the background, all wonderful.
My first run since I fell last week! It was great. I headed out first thing so it was quite chilly but the sun was shining and it felt glorious being outside in the early hours. Half way through my run I stopped to swing on the rope swing, pausing my audio book to takeContinue reading “04/11/20 – Birds and swing”
