Hey peeps- good news- today is where the days get longer than the nights!
I bought myself some more tulips last week, they are so bright and cheerful.
After work on Monday I went for a little run, in the rain- I didn’t look at my pace at all as I knew I would be slow. At first I found it fine, but after 2 miles I had to stop and walk for a bit as my legs were getting sore. Ah well.
I had a lovely dinner after- baked sweet potato with almond butter, and a salad with avocado, rocket, and cherry tomatoes that I roasted a little in some basil oil. Delicious.
Tuesday was a rest day as we were going in to London after work to see Bug with Adam Buxton (from The Adam and Joe show etc). it was a bit of a rush to get there- we had to get to the Odeon cinema in Leicester Square, but at least we knew we had booked our seats. I had never been to that cinema before, but I can’t see how it was much different to a normal one- I am not sure I would pay to see a film there. The seats were a rather interesting leopard print too.
Anyway, it turned out we had loads of time, so got to watch the preview (the countdown on the screen), and then a video of Adam cycling (helmet cam) through Norwich. The show was great- very funny, and included a live interview with Edgar Wright (who directs films, Shaun of the Dead, Spaced, stuff like that). We even got a sneak preview of the new Marvel film called Ant-man, although I thought that was a joke?
Anyway, it was fab, but finished so late (half 11!)- I was tired this morning! I am not used to going out on a school night.
I was excited that my order of Trek bars arrived- they were selling them off at a discount and they put on their facebook page a sneak peak of the new packaging- including what looks like a coconut bar- exciting!
I have also been sent some grape juice drinks to try, although I feel like the weather needs to warm up before I have cold drinks!
Plus I have managed to persuade my brother to come to the Sweatshop run with me tonight- should be fine and hopefully we can keep each other company on the run as I think we run at a similar pace.

I love running in the rain and I love almond butter on sweet potatoes such a good combo!
Have fun on your run x
I haven’t had a baked sweet potato in ages! Oh I love trek bars, can’t get them over here in Dublin though as they are banned due to the gingko in them (stupid Irish medical board!!) the new trek bars look awesome!
The new ones don’t have gingko in them, but they seem to have a little added sugar so maybe not so good.
I’ve tried to love sweet potato, I really have. Tonight I admitted defeat – the sweetness just doesn’t do it for me!
I’m very jealous that you got to see a preview of BUG – I love that show 🙂 Count Buckules is the king of the jingle 🙂
Hope you’re feeling better after your run in the rain too 🙂
Good old Buckules and Cornballs eh?
I can’t go out on school nights any more – even on weekends, midnight’s about my limit these days!
The show sounds really good, as do those grape juices… seen them around but never tried them 🙂
Sometimes we brave the cinema in the week, but that is about it usually!
Flowers and the news that the days are getting longer – you perked me up right at the start of your post! Very envious of your trek bar delivery, they are so good. We went to a directors lounge cinema the other day. It had leather seats and was very swanky, but leopard print is something else!
I think the cinema you went to sounds a lot nicer!
Oh I’m glad I’m not the only one that struggles with later than usual nights! I was shattered after going to a gig the other night! I would have loved to see Edgar wright, love all his movies with Simon Peg 🙂
That’s so lovely that you run with your brother. Hope you have fun!
I’ve never had the desire to see any films in London. In fact I hate going into London. The whole process just stresses me out. The trains, the busyness, the air…it just really takes away from any enjoyment I could get. It takes about an hour and 40 mins to get there which doesn’t help matters I suppose. But what you saw sounds very interesting! Cool seats as well.
I think we we are nearer it does not seem like such a hassle. But we don’t do it that much as I hate the underground- smelly old trains!
