Half term is nearly here and some random photos

We are off to Scotland tonight- I am hoping to get to Edinburgh parkrun, but I have seen that there are road closures because of the marathon and other races, so who knows.

Onto the random photos:

This shower gel is amazing- cherry and almond milk and basically smells of marzipan. Winner.

Ages ago (Easter…) I ordered a selection of these chia charge bars (some are flapjacks, some are nakd style bars). The chia charge cocoa karma bar is amazing- more like the Lara Bars you get in the US. I shall be ordering some more when I get around to it.

We have been seed-sitting (looking after some seedlings for Andy’s parents while they are on holiday). The fox cubs had been enjoying getting a few of the little pots each night and flinging them across the patio, so we got an old shelving unit from the shed and put them up there- it seems to have worked so far!

Bees love the foxgloves.

I want to paint our fence (green I think) but I am a bit worried that the paint will drip through to next door.

I’ve got a sun shade for my car to keep the steering wheel from being boiling hot. But it really only fit my old car (I only remember this on those hottest days)- on Thursday after a boiling hot day at work, this greeted me! I think I need to invest in a bigger one!

This week has gone:

Monday- pop to see Mum and Dad after work (sit in their garden), come home and finish up work, have dinner, do some weeding in the garden, then make pb blondies for work- a very jam-packed day.

Tuesday- OH run to the lakes and back. Wore a t-shirt and should have worn a vest. It’s way too hot now for t-shirts, what was I thinking?

Wednesday- Yoga- lovely session focusing on breathing. I managed for the first time ever to do the top bit of the pairs downward dog thing, although I did fall off on my first attempt and ended up with a mini egg lump and bruise on my knee (I iced it once I got home). Very pleased that I managed it though.

Thursday- a run looking for shade, although some of the paths I took through the woods turned out to be way too narrow and full of stinging nettles and brambles.

After we get back from Scotland I have a few bits planned, including doing the London 10 Mile race on the Sunday. Entries close at midnight on the 1st June so if you fancy it, make sure you sign up asap!

Do you like 10 mile races? Do you think I could paint the fence?  Any Bank Holiday plans?

  1. I got very tempted by the 10mile – and then realised that maybe 2 weeks of not running isn’t the best preparation. Darn it. I rather like the 10 mile distance.

    Reckon you could do the fence, as long as the paint isn’t too sloppy.
