I love reading the day in the life posts, and I have not written one for ages, so today I thought it was about time!
Although it is about today, which hasn’t finished yet!
Anyway, here goes.
7.45am Wake up- I did set an alarm luckily- usually I wake up at that sort of time at the weekends, but I have had a cough this week so less sleep. Potter about and get dressed.
8am- Drive to parkrun.
8.20am- Collect the bib and map, and head off to my marshaling position.
On my drive there, there was the most beautiful sunrise- really pink, and when I was in my position it was still visible.
I took some pictures of the course, although it is one big loop so not all visible from where I was.
Such a pretty place to have a run in.
I was cheering runners past until about half 9, and then I collected the sign and the gate lock and headed back along the path to the start.
Then I walked back to the car and drove home.
10.10am- Have some breakfast- toasted sourdough bread and tea. Then I straightened my hair, put some washing away, weighed out some dried fruit to soak and watched The Soup with Andy.
11.15am- Drove to work. I was helping out at the Christmas market- I had worn a festive t-shirt to get into the spirit.
(Hard to photograph while I am wearing it). Anyway my stall turned out to be outside so no-one saw it! Ah well.
2.45- Get home and have some lunch (ryvita and hummus, and festive clementines hooray!) and watch a bit of TV.
Head into the kitchen to make some stollen dough. Pop onto the computer for a bit while it is doing the first rise, and peruse shops for Christmas present ideas. Suddenly I am feeling festive!
4.30pm- Walk up to the shops with Andy. I needed a few bits for work, and for my lunch on Monday. Urgh Tesco was just horrible- the heat was blasting out and I felt like sweat was pouring off me within seconds of getting in the shop. It was also heaving and horrible annoying Christmas music was playing- makes me want to get out of there as soon as possible! Festivometer is going back down! We got a chai latte to share on the walk home as I had a free drinks voucher.
6pm- The stollen dough still needs a bit longer so went back on the computer for more browsing of shops and general time wasting. I do have work to do but that will have to wait until Sunday now!
The rest of the day will look something like- finish making stollen (hopefully feel more festive again), have some dinner (spiced butternut squash soup), watch a film, and get my running gear ready as I have a race tomorrow morning.
Have you put up your decorations yet? I have not, but some friends have. And for the record, I think they are crazy! I mean, it is not even December yet. I love having decorations up, but having them up for weeks on end makes them feel less special. Also, people with children should remember that it hypes the children up even more…
