Today, I got to make lemonade, something I haven’t done for several years, but, despite my questionable following of the recipe, it actually turned out OK! Check out my last post for more detailed ramblings 🙂
I also went – shock horror – for a run! (Well, run/walk. Stamina builds up over time!). Normally, exercise wise, I prefer to stick with dancing games on our Xbox Kinect, cycling, swimming or playing hockey, but today I felt like something different…I’ve been meaning to go for a run for a little while now, but was too nervous to go on my own. Today, however, I really wanted to go and my sister had no inclination whatsoever to join me, so I went alone. It was quite nice, actually – I enjoyed being alone, and having complete control of where I was going, and the sense of achievement I felt when I got back after half an hour or so was brilliant.
I did download an app to track how far I was going, but unfortunately I was so wrapped up in making sure my earbuds were sorted out that I completely forgot to press Start. Whoops!!! Going for a run also meant trying out my super awesome new trainers which are, for the record, incredibly comfortable. And awesomely pink.
I am also about to sit down and watch the Great British Bake Off, with a mug of hot chocolate and marshmallows to celebrate Left Handers’ Day on behalf of my leftie/ambidextrous sister(no, I don’t get it either but that was my mum’s reasoning to let us have it, and I’m certainly not complaining!), having finished Rainbow Rowell’s book Attachments. Bliss. Oh, and I just finished a bowl of cheese and onion crisps. Yay!
