A Short Situation!!


The weather must be confused, day two of the holidays and day two of sunshine, just what is going on??? Not that I’m complaining, I’ve been outside all day long, painting fences and walls, cutting and re- seeding lawns and sorting out the shed – it looks like the indoor jobs will have to wait!
With the jobs done it was time for a run and due to the weather the layers were finally shed – the shorts are out!! New shorts ( well 3/4 length). Alas the new shorts only lasted a mile before I had a wardrobe malfunction – I only pulled the string to tighten the top – it came off in my hand. Great!! Over a mile from home and baggy shorts. Bizarrely, other than the odd shuffle to pull the offending shorts up, I ran one of the best 3 miles for some time. I might wear them every run!

3 miles run in 27 minutes.
Taking the shorts back tomorrow
Bring it on!

A Game of Hide and Seek With a Couple of Tits……..

Blue%20Tit%20%20for%20webSo the kids head back to school and summer finally arrives -typical that! On the plus side my schools not back until Wednesday, so not only have I got 2 child-free days but I also get to have fun in the sun -beats housework!!! Today was another gardening day (ok I admit to a sneaky bit of sunbathing as well -you’ve got to get the sun when you can!!), the agenda today was to re-pot my shrubs and bushes. Two hours it took, some of the roots were well and truly welded to the pots -it’s years since I last did them. Still they’re all done now, I’ve just my rockery at the front of the house to sort and my garden will nearly be back to something that Percy Thrower would be proud of -sort of!!

So with the gardening done it was time to sit back and admire my hard work, that’s when I noticed that the birds had finally (it’s only taken all bleeding weekend) noticed the feeder. Wahoo, time to get the camera out. Just my luck to attract a couple of camera-shy tits!!! Two hours (slight exaggeration but it felt like forever!)  I sat there waiting for the flaming things to stay in one place long enough for me to grab the shot of the day -they clearly thought it was a game. Then Jenny Wren joined in – I gave up. On the plus side the feeder has been found and hopefully more birds will be making use of it soon. Now all I need is for Ralph (the bird that next-door-but-ones cat has had a go at) to look up from his grass-seed eating and see that there’s better food on offer -here’s hoping!

Loving the sunshine

cycling tomorrow

Bring it on

The whole of the Moon……..Maybe Not!!





Well I did have an early morning run planned but I think the stresses and strains of Jack’s review day (more on that later) had finally got to me and I just couldn’t summon myself to get up any earlier than my alarm clock – oh well there’s always tomorrow. Still not running gave me time to do other things – like taking photos of the moon!! Yep at 6:30 I was  in the middle of the garden, stood on my bench, still in my PJ’s and a pair of furry boots attempting to take pictures of the full moon. God know why, it was just shinning so beautifully in the sky I couldn’t resist……I think I’ve gone mad!!!

Maybe the madness is the reason I forgot my dinner, forgot to put Jacks pack-up in his bag and even worse I forgot to take my ‘upper decker flopper stopper’ to work.Yes, despite the very frosty conditions I went on my bike  – I had to make up for my non-run some how. But in my rush to get out there I forgot an important piece of clothing – my bra! Thankfully my lack of knockers meant nobody really noticed that I spent the entire day wearing a sports vest under my top – you see there are some advantages to being flat chested.

So to back to Jack’s review day, amazingly within the space of 24 hours Jack has gone from being a non-tryer to top of the class – funny that. Something tells me these targets and levels aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.

The weekend’s here again.

Time to relax

Bring it on
