Boxing Day Buffet…………..

Wembley Construction......

Wembley Construction……

So not exactly a huge lie-in -I was up by nine. Still it gave me a chance to put everything straight in the kitchen – for a short time at least. wish I could say the same for the living room- it still looks like a bombs gone off. Theres the Xbox out, Lego Wembley is under construction, piles of unwrapped prezzies are everywhere and we have more rugby shirts drapped round the room than JJB (well we would have done if it hadn’t shut-down!!) Then there’s my new flashy cycle helmet – you won’t miss me. My monopod for my camera – can’t wait to play with that and some books to help me become a better photography – miracles might happen!!! Maybe tomorrow I’ll get round to tidying some of it, today I thought ‘sod it’ and went for a run instead.

If I’m honest it wasn’t a bad run -3 miles in 24 1/2 minutes. The furthest I’ve gone in a while (seems ridiculous when I used to do 10 miles at least twice a week but it’s short runs or nothing) and definitely one of the fastest. I was pretty impressed with my time especially as it was pretty windy and I’m currently swigging from a cough medicine bottle – my winter hack is back -the joys of being an asthmatic runner!! Still I’m not one to moan! The other good thing was my knee didn’t feel too bad to say I’d added an extra half mile on – it wasn’t niggle free but less of a niggle than in the past – I won’t say the comebacks on though. It always goes tit’s up when I do!!

Nice to see a few other runner out there, all nodding approvingly at one another for making the effort -I even did the ‘dance round the signpost dance’ – you know the one – two runners running towards one another, who steps left or right, then you both step the same way -could have been even faster if  I’d knocked the dancing off!!

So now I’m on with the buffet tea – you know the kind. Nibbles, sliced meats, pizza’s and the all traditional ‘pork pie’ -all out on the kitchen table to get when you’re ready -my kitchen stayed tidy for all of ….well not very long really!!

Another run done

Hoping to play with the camera tomorrow

Bring it on!!

Slippy Slidey Friday………….

Mind the Step

Mind the Step

So in his eagerness to get to work hubby flew out of the door literally! Alas I missed it. Though he wasn’t really eager to get to work it was more to do with the first severe frost and ice of the season arriving. Hubby only found out how bad it was when he put his foot on the top step and was on the pavement before he knew it. Even worse he then had to try to get up the steps he’d just fallen down to lock the front door. I didn’t laugh when he text me to say what had happened, in fact when I’d stopped the tears of laughter rolling down my face I text him back to check he was ok. If you think I’m not very sympathetic you should have heard Jack laugh when I told him!!! Anyway most of Yorkshire seem to have had to crawl about on hands and knees to get anywhere -or so the local news would have us believe. They failed to mention that by half ten the rain had come and washed everything away – including my broadband signal!!

Yes, we’ve recently swapped our broadband provider – all has been going well,loads of mega-fast internet access until today. When it rained, in fact it more than rained. Thing is I really needed the internet today I had a monopod to research and for once,as I’m still off work, I had a chance to look – or I would have done. But no, every time I logged on there was no connection, not one bar on the signal -hence lots of turning on and off hoping it would forget it wasn’t working – about half five it forgot – round about the time it stopped raining. Pft. So now I’ve  no idea which monopod is best (maybe I should have taken more notice when the real photographer dude let me hold his pole -ahem!) so any photographers out there with any tips they’ll be gratefully received.

It seems to have been along week

Finally feeling something like

Bring it on
