I have not blogged for a long, long while.
I have not run for a long, long while.
This is a running blog hence no new post!
Now we all know we can come up with lots of lame excuses not to run, the weather, the time, work, family, tired, sniffles, aches, pains, no clean kit and the plain can’t be bovvered! Well I will have you know, my excuse for not having run tops all of these……………..
I have been stressing, (causing dangerous running tummy for a month), packing, shopping for Christmas and finally MOVING house. Not a little move round the corner, no a huge move from Essex to Devon. I challenge anyone to come up with a better reason for not having run and blogged!
We are now safely ensconced in our new rural retreat so running should commence as soon as I have shifted a chesty cough, got the council to erect street lights and levelled all hills in the locale!
Now during my last month in Essex I wrote a things I won’t miss list and here it is:-
The traffic- the journey to work could take 20 mins or 1 hr if trouble on A12
The loo roll at work-one of those industrial rolls with an impossible to find end
The yappy dogs in the street who keep me awake at night.
The fire alarm that rings at work at 3.45 every Thursday for a very long 20 seconds.
Our bedroom light, that granted saves the environment but does nothing for my humour when trying to nip in to the room to find something.
The taxi driver who honks his horn every day when he picks his kids up rather than park the car and ring the door bell.
Many things we are glad to leave behind but we will miss all our family and friends as we start this new adventure.
