I thought it was quite funny posting some pictures of me running in the snow earlier in the week – talk of “speaking too soon”! Today we have seen the first snow of winter.
I drove into the office this morning after a night of gales, hail and battering rain. It made for an interesting journey dodging puddles and branches in the road. It was pitch black when I set out, so I took it easy – only to have Mr Impatient right on my bumper around the lanes and the bends. Why do people drive like that? I had to swerve on occasions to miss tree bits – he (had to be a man didn’t it!) could not possibly react quickly enough to stop if I had to. What would have happened if I had gone around a corner and found a tree in the middle of the road? I could have stopped – could they? Probably not. Driving madness. Don’t do it!
In work nice and early and got lots done before a meeting with one of our key suppliers – nice people – great meeting. Before that I ate a banana with some peanut butter which kept me full until lunch – great food!
I only had telephone conferences booked for the afternoon, so I took the opportunity to drive home over lunch and pick up from home. Lovely to be safe and sound in the light – but on the way home I drove through sleet and snow, and that continued when I got home – even some “real” snow later – big flakey bits. Lovely to watch from the warmth of my office with the central heating on! I ate lunch late when I got home – two greek yogurts with some lemon curd stirred in. My new favourite.
Work, telephone, work.
I managed to phone the hospital too as I am still waiting for an ultrasound appointment – as soon as that is done I can get back on the waiting list for my operation, so I’m keen! A very nice lady in ultrasound apologised and told me I would get an appointment for the first week in January – which suits me nicely. Doing the sums again, that means with a six week wait for my operation, that could be done by the end of February – great! Plenty of time to get healed and run the BUPA 10k in London at the end of May!
Dinner has been some honey roast salmon and salad. Happy to say I was not starving, so that filled me nicely. Now – decaf coffee with amaretto! Just lovely.
Tomorrow – my annual appraisal. That should be fun!
Have a wonderful Wednesday.
