Distance: 1.97m (gah why didn’t i run for 10 seconds longer??)
Woohoo! I’m getting quicker – my average pace today was 12m mile, and that was on a hilly route – I decided to try to tackle the ‘big hill’ I normally face when I run home from work, but this time early in the day with plenty of energy. Only walked for a little bit in the middle which is extra steep, coming down hill I hit 6m22 and maintained a pretty good speed throughout so am well happy with that run!
Decorating is coming on leaps and bounds – the orange walls are finally gone (yuk – mango something or other it was when we first painted it 7 years ago) and as we were painting I was thinking – isn’t it funny how when you’re young you want all these garish, statement colours in your house but as you get older they just start to hurt your eyes!! We bought our house 11 years ago, and I remember planning all these wonderful colours I was going to have each room, and did, but over the years we have muted them out. The once vibrant sky blue spare room is now a mellow ‘soft stone’ (light biege), the burgundy bedroom is now ‘warm stone’ (slightly pinkish light biege) and now the orange is gone from the lounge and we’re eyeing up the kitchen next although that may be a big job as we actually need a whole new kitchen units and all – bah! It’s not just me either, as when my brothers wife (who is 10 years younger than me) moved in with him a few years ago, she painted the downstairs loo blood red – it is now a muted chocolate colour and a far nicer room to spend time in…not that I spend alot of time in it of course!
Ahh, I digress, must crack on with some painting as hubby keeps asking me to pass him things which means he wants me to do stuff. Luckily dinner at the in-laws tonight so a welcome break ahead!
Hope you all had great weekends. Running club tomorrow – yay!
PS I have a ticket for Paul McKennas I can make you thin live show at Hammersmith on 19th Feb – it’s 8.30-5pm I think. The seat is row C and was £99. I can’t go now – anyone fancy it? Make me an offer!!!!
