Had a good clean in the conservatory and sort out. Just need to clean the floor in there tomorrow.
I made a pumpkin with the cotton Jenny gave me yesterday.
Run day this morning, we just can't get below 34 minutes. A circuit around the reservior again.
I have ran 45 km so far this month in five and a half hours. That would have been time I would normally have spent in bed!
Mark managed to get a picture of the reservior while we were running this morning. This was taken at 7.22am!
I made a giant Jaffa cake for Jennys birthday. It went funny like the one I made on Marks birthday. Wondering if it has anything to do with the fact I used a sachet of vegetarian jelly instead of the usual block jelly I used to buy.
I went to meet some friends and it was a nice day I walked there and took the route through the park back.
Thanks for the cotton Jenny, I'm going to make some autumn leaves.
Anais made a notice board for her bedroom with lollipop sticks.
Feeling miffed today, did a run this morning, started at the same location, ended at the same location, it only tracked us for 4.93 km, 0.07 km off 5K. Not much but it miffed me! Stats only OK today, wouldn't have gone faster than Fridays run if we had tracked the whole 5K. Try again on Tuesday.
On the bright side, 40K ran this month so far in 5 hours.
This afternoon we went to Forge Mill Needle Museum and Bordesley Abbey.
A marmalade cake made.
Four peanut butter and chocolate lava pots made.
Too early for Christmas? A crochet wreath ornament made with a small curtain ring.
It was Bournville Open Day today so we went to have a look.
The first stop was Selly Manor.
The Rest House and Bournville Green.
Inside the primary school.
St Francis Church
Cadburys and The Bournville Experience.
Signs of autumn, the trees are changing colour.
The Serbian Orthodox Church.
The Model Boat Club.
A lovely morning for a run around the reservior again today.
I beat my time again but only by a minute or thereabouts. 5K done in 33 minutes and 46 seconds today.
The rest of the day was spent at Gillys house for the charity cake and coffee morning. I won the main raffle prize which was a "Storm Shawl" made by Deb, her knitting is exquisite!
No run today but I did walk to the library to go and get this library book I reserved a while ago.
Mark went to London. The train station in Birmingham first thing this morning.
Pictures of London.
Anais had a full day in college.
Roman went to Lego Club until 5.30 but didn't get home until later on as the caretaker had locked the gates and nobody could get out!
I did two rounds of Sophies Universe.
I made an almond cake for a friends charity coffee morning tomorrow.
Anais was up and out early today for her first full day of college.
I was up and out early again today because it was run day. I was by myself though as Mark has a bad back. 5K done again and I'm improving my time too! This could have been better but annoyingly I had to slow down to walking pace towards the end of the reservoir to let a stream of cars go past me as it was on a blind bend.
Six runs done so far this month and I have ran for 30K (about 18.5 miles!) in almost four hours. Would never have thought this would have been possible a month ago!
Mark had a doctors appointment for his over 40s health check up.
I went shopping.
Anais got a £10 Amazon gift voucher from college for 100% attendance and no lates last year.
I managed to do two rounds on Sophies Universe, 124 popcorns made tonight.
This was on my Facebook earlier and thought it was pretty cute.
Rest day today so no run but I did walk (there and back - didn't drive!) to catch up with some friends who I haven't seen since before the summer. It was a nice day so I took the long journey through the park.
I made six shapes for a Heidi bear.
While I was gone Anais made some fairy cakes.
Up early again this morning for another run.
It was drizzly with rain but we still made the effort, its actually refreshing to run in the rain, it cools you down.
I was better able to gauge where 5K ended today (on Saturday I ran for 5.22K in 39 minutes, 10 seconds) today I did 5.05K in 35 minutes, 41 seconds. Getting close to 5K in 30 minutes!
Rest day tomorrow and out again on Wednesday.
Two rounds done on Sophies Universe today and part 14 finished. Onto part 15 now.
I am Michelle (41), mum to Anais (17) and Roman (12), been married to Mark (46) for 18 years, stay at home mum.
