Hope everyone had a lovely bank holiday 🙂
First things first- it was a 26 minute run today- about 2.8 miles in all. My speed was up and down, not sure why. I did have breakfast before, and let it go down while doing some cleaning and stuff. It was very windy out there so that could be why I suppose.
Once home it was onto the shred- my second time of doing it so I knew what was coming. I did enjoy it, although I am thinking that the same motivational comments may get annoying after a while- it needs to be like those football games where the commentary changes with each game, so you never know what comments you will get. Anyway, I did manage it and am thinking that on some of the moves I need to use my heavier hand weights in order to make sure I am pushing myself. But it was good 🙂
After that it was a raisin oatmeal clif bar. I think I may order a box from wiggle as they are so delicious, and it is cheaper to buy in bulk.
After that it was time for some garden centre wandering. I had some vouchers to spend, so we headed off to Crews Hill (a road with loads of garden centres all along it). Our fave nursery was having a half price sale, so in the end we only spent about £10 but got a massive pack of tulip bulbs, a lavendar plant, 2 other little shrubs, and this beautiful (hardy) hibiscus. So pretty. I am keeping it inside for a bit as there are so many buds. Each flower must be 4 inches across. 🙂
I also spent my vouchers on a pretty plant (agapanthus- not sure how you spell it- tropical looking) and a little strawb plant with loads of runners!
I planted a few of them when I got back, and have also attempted to put a net around the pumpkin, we shall see if it works.
This evening it was bean wraps for dinner (yum) and a little walk in the freezing cold air! Honestly it is autumn already!
Happy bank holiday and yay for the short working week!

That hibiscus flower is lovely, I need to become a better gardener, I have a deathly effect on plants…
The wind has been a killer the past few days hasn’t it!
Yes the wind has been bad! Its Autumn already 🙁
Luckily my boyfriend has inherited his parents’ green fingers so when a plant is about to die (normally I drown them!) he can rescue them! Plus we find plants that are easy to grow and don’t mind being chopped back/ starved of water etc- treat em mean, keep em keen is the best motto for plants!!
