This morning we went to the cinema to go and see Toy Story 4.
Chocolate pots made for pudding.
A few stars made tonight.
Saturday morning. Alarm clock went off at 6 AM. Out of bed for 6.20 AM. Left the house 7 AM. Decided to push ourselves today and then when we were tired walk for a few seconds until we got our breath back. Apparantly this is known as "fartleks" (Sweedish for speed play). It worked! Fastest time yet - 5 K done in 31-24.
Log delivery due 8.30, Anais phoned when we were walking home to say log man here early and knocking the door, where were we? Had to run home!
9.15, started to move this little lot to the back garden.
10.30 - all stacked and ready for winter
Took a while to tidy and hoover up the mess.
After lunch we went to Jennys house so Mark could set up the new table for her.
When we got home Mark sorted the summer house out and put the bench in there out of the way for winter.
We hired "X-Men, The Dark Phoenix" while we ate tea.
I crocheted my bag together and sewed all the ends in.
Twenty five tetra packs taken to the tip to be recycled today.
Anais made some cookies.
The bulk of the dragon done, just wings and back spikes to do.
Squares made for a bag.
Mark finally (after 18 months!) finished his Coastal Crochet CAL, finished the border tonight with a row or double crochet, row of treble crochet and a final row of crab stitch.
Run day this morning, 5.08 KM done in 32 51. 25.1 Km done so far this month (15.59 miles).
We have been running for nine weeks now, every other day since Thursday 8th August. We did our first non stop 5K on Saturday 7th September, "graduating" four weeks early. From Saturday 7th September my stats are -
Mark went to Bristol. Anais went to college. Roman went to Lego Club. I started to make Harry Potter. Two arms, two legs and one head.
This morning we went for a run. 5.1K done in 32 - 48 , not brilliant but not terrible either.
The reservoir at approx 7.15 AM.
Roman was off today as some of the teachers were striking (tomorrow too) so he came with me to the library to meet some friends. We walked back through the park.
Three pouches made.
This afternoon we went to the opticians to collect Anais' new glasses.
This morning was run day. 5K done in 32 35 which was slower than Friday by about half a minute.
The reservoir at approx 8 AM.
I noticed this morning that my running shoes had holes in the mesh area around the toe. We took them back and they exchanged them for me with no problem at all. I went up a size in the hope they won't be as snug so it shouldn't happen again.
After lunch we went to get some fresh air and stretched our legs around the Lickeys.
Chocolate pots for pudding.
Log delivery is coming next Saturday so this morning Mark moved the log store back to its position ready. He also painted the outhouse which had a lot of holes in it from drilling when the boiler was fit.
I started a new Sophie. Yellow crochet thread and a 1mm hook.
After lunch we got some fresh air and stretched our legs around the yachting pool.
When Anais and Roman went to bed we watched "Rocketman" which we both enjoyed.
I am Michelle (41), mum to Anais (17) and Roman (12), been married to Mark (46) for 18 years, stay at home mum.
