You can catch me!

Because apparently I am very slow and am certainly not the gingerbread man (shh marathon talk listeners, not that type of gingerbread man).

I think my Nike+ is struggling- although I have had it for 18 months now. It keeps losing the signal from my shoes, and today I did nearly 5 miles (and I only just calibrated it)- at a fair pace for me, in 47 mins, but it thinks I did just over 4 and had an average pace of 11.30, and it won’t upload my run. Grr. Anyway it was a bit of a mind battle today- during the day I was looking forward to a run, but after leaving work and driving through the drizzle, by the time I got home all I fancied was a cup of tea and some TV. But I did know that I would feel better after a run, and regret not getting out, especially if later in the week the weather is worse- if it tips with rain on Wednesday at least I know I only have to do a short run because I did a longer midweek one today. It was so dark though- I went up to Sweatshop on Sunday to get some high viz things with my vouchers, but they were shut (grr), so I am planning on stopping by on Thursday after work. I don’t mind it where there are lots of street-lights- I never need to worry about bad pavements, but when I am driving it reminds me of how seeing pedestrians is really hard, so when crossing the roads I was getting a bit paranoid. Was glad to be home!

But I did have a yummy gingerbread man after my dinner to make up for that fact. These are tasty but not that gingery- I think my taste buds are so used to lots of spices that I need more! And more! Also they would be yummy with a little melted dark chocolate on top- does that destroy the “no junk” promise? I will use nice chocolate 🙂

Last night I tried some Teapigs Lemon and Ginger tea ( I love the little piglets so much!)- this was yummy- not too gingery and I think perfect if you were feeling like you had a bit of a cold or something.

How do you eat your gingerbread men? I like to eat the legs first (so they can’t run away- cue evil laugh) but also because then they keep smiling at me. Weird.

Now a technical question- I quite like the idea of a facebook page (sort of getting with the program, I am afraid I am never going to understand tweeting but I can do facebook!), but I wonder if I am better to have a profile instead of a page? I don’t really want people from work reading my blog (I know stuff on the internet can be found by anyone, and if they did come across it then fine, but I don’t want to put it out there to make it easy!) and I tried to make a page this evening. But then I can’t seem to add people (I would like to add my lovely blog friends) like you would on a normal page- anyone with some idea of how it works I would appreciate a few pointers! Cheers.

  1. I always eat the limbs of gingerbread men first – somehow it just seems cruel to bite the head off.
    I think that you can invite people to like your Facebook page, but they’re not added as friends as such. I haven’t done that yet – I just linked my Facebook page on my blog with the option to like it (there’s a widget in WordPress for it). I’m not at all technical – I hope that made some sense or someone else can help!

  2. Despite having a similar post title earlier in the year, I must admit that I have never eaten a gingerbread man! Mostly because I wasn’t a fan of ginger until recently, but also because the texture of the biscuit always seemed either too hard or too chewy…having seen the Shrek films, I don’t think I could ever eat a gingerbread man! I’d just keep seeing this scene in my mind and feeling horribly mean:

    I have similar issues with the dark, only in the morning instead of the evening – I need to get myself more reflective clothing!


  3. Its a Facebook page really that you should set up technically speaking from a social media point of view. Facebook pages are for businesses or a product such as your blog, and profiles really need to just be used for individuals, but so many businesses get this wrong!
    I’ve made my step dad steal a hi viz jacket for me from work, but I haven’t tested it out yet!

  4. Ffion’s right if it’s for the blog, it should be a page… I started a Facebook profil for my paper ages ago and was told eventually that anything that isn’t a person has to be a page. If you put a link on your sidebar, people will be able to find it and like it… I will!

  5. Thanks for the facebook help- I will investigate the button for the blog 🙂
    Jessica love the Shrek films! 🙂 When I make them I make stars normally though!

  6. Jenny and Marijke top marks for liking my page! I keep losing it so am impressed you managed to find it! 🙂
    Jemma you are right those biscuits are for kids so not too spicy for them!
