It was off to Longleat today for my 10k race! I went alone as the children didn't want to get up and leave the house at 7:45 on a Sunday morning - and I don't blame them - but I had a fabulous time. I beat the hills, finished in 56:34 and got a lovely medal at the end. The estate was opening up later for Chinese New Year and that meant we ran past a rather impressive dragon.
Storm Imogen landed today. When did storms suddenly become personified? Is it to make them more bearable? Give them a name and we won't mind them so much dumping their rain, wind and general havoc upon us? Luckily I didn't have much to do today and following a quick trip into town I could keep warm and dry inside and watch the rain against the window pane.
Much better weather today thank you very much. Cold with a hint of sunshine for my 10 mile run but Imogen had left her mark; a 100 yard stretch of my run alongside the river was flooded and my trainers got in a right old state!
Back to work and the start of a bad few days of cake and sugar consumption! My planning morning was fuelled by coffee cake.
What a beautiful morning today; freezing cold and misty. I snapped this whilst waiting for the lovely husband to scrape my car.
Tidying up my classroom and outdoor area this morning I noticed the lovely snowdrops in our walled garden and realised that I am now ready for Spring. Half term now so I know it is just around the corner.
A good fast 5 mile run this morning then later a rare few hours out with just the husband ending up in my favourite local village pub. He also brought me these lovely flowers yesterday.
