I really have to find myself a hobby that doesn’t involve a keyboard! I have either sat here (sofa with laptop on lap) or at my desk (with the big Dell desktop) all day long. Working, blogging, sparking and writing – oh – I did get out for a run!
Today started brightly, the antibiotics are working and my tooth feels a whole lot better today – very nearly “normal” if that is ever possible for me! I slept like a log, and woke bright as a button and ready to go.
SparkPeople first to catch up on my friends, who are all in the States and therefore all come out to play whilst I’m in the land of nod! Catch up done, work time. Coffee fuelled today as I had a lot to do. I popped downstairs late morning to throw some leeks and potato in a pan with some vegetable stock ready for soup for lunch. Back to work. Lunch, a quick whizz with a hand blender and we had a huge bowl of soup with some wholemeal bread. I do like soup!
This afternoon, back to work – all the way through until 4pm when I finally ran out of steam, just a brief interlude at 3ish to pop downstairs and make a curry for dinner. It wasn’t raining – but threatening to – so we put on our running gear, rain jacket, reflective bibs, hat and out the door for 3.5 miles around the block. I always think that sounds like we live in a town! We don’t! The “block” is out of the village and a circular route on single track lanes. We have three we can go on from here – one (2.25 miles) takes us up to the beacon via what we call “Cow Poo Lane” (it is!), across the top and down the hill back home. The first and last 100m are houses – the rest is just lane and fields (and dark!). The second (the one we did today), 3.5 miles and goes down the lane by our house, past a farm into a steep valley, up the other side, right at a T junction, up to another lane, right and right down the hill back. This time just one house to pass going out, and a couple in the village home. Finally there is the killer hill circuit, 3.5 miles again but – down, up, down, up, down up. All out in the sticks!
So, run done and curry cooked, a quick shower and eat. Since then, on the sofa with Lippy Laptop, SparkPeople again, the blog, then the exciting bit of writing for NaNoWriMo! I’m on target with my word count, but it takes discipline to get it all done. I’m enjoying it though, it’s a good story and I can’t wait to hear what comes next! 🙂
So, Saturday tomorrow – a nice lie in, shopping, no doubt a longer run and more writing. Lovely!
Have a wonderful day.
