Sorry for the radio silence this week. It’s been an extraordinarily busy few weeks. So busy that I have barely picked up a needle and when I have it’s been to work on my large camo blanket. So a pretty un-taxing knit.
Part of this business has, of course been the decorating of the house. That has been very time consuming. Trying to keep a half decorated house habitable has been more time consuming and exhausting than I could have imagined. We’re still at a point where guest have to usually stand chatting in either the landing or the kitchen. Camping chairs are becoming more uninviting every day.
On a more exciting note, my 5K run was yesturday morning. Another reason for my lack of time, I’ve been busy trying to pack in as much training as I can. In a bit of luck, the heath near my house provided fairly similar terrain to the run.
The 5Km was one of the stages of the New Forest Run. It was such a friendly atmosphere and I’m hoping to go back next year to try one of the longer distances. I’d like to camp over as well.
I finally felt like a proper runner once I had my number pinned to my stomach. I’ve kept it as a souvenir.
Thankfully, my husband had his camera and so I can share a this video of my start.
