…… a little girl asked her Mummy as I passed them on this mornings run. I found myself contemplating the possible replies as I plodded on
- because she’s mad
- that’s not running that’s jogging (grrrrr)
- she has nothing better to do with her time
- its healthy
- she wants to get fit
- she needs to lose weight
Then I found myself pondering that deep question, ‘Why do I run?’ answers were worryingly similar:- I’m mad, this is not running its plodding, its good for me (?!) I like to feel fit, I want to lose weight and dieting alone will not cut it but really what it boils down to is that healthy feeling I get when back home, along with an incredible sense of having achieved something. So that’s it in a nutshell and of course at the moment the Janathon has something to do with it.
Saturday has as usual passed in a whirlwind of activity.
We have been host to a wedding in our house today. We don’t live in wedding venue, usually, but today when I got up this was the scene on the front room floor:-
as you will clearly see from this official photo, the guests are gathered in their finest clothes to watch the cows get married under the shade of a very large tree. Unfortunately I did not hear the vicar conduct the ceremony, if I had at the point he would have asked “does anyone present know a reason why these cows may not lawfully marry, declare it now” I’d have shouted ‘yes I need to do the hoovering’ but I was too late and housework has been sidelined to another day.
Now I know you will be all thrilled to know the happy couple spent their honeymoon camping
the groom looks like he has had too much to drink, but camping on a honeymoon I sure you will admit they know how to live.
Last night hubby showed an interest in this blogging thing, so I willing showed him my posts. Not once did he smile, or make comment except of course to point out any typos, I was really pleased I shared. Wont do that again!
