Christmas Preparations

There was an old Shaz who swallowed a fly, I don’t know why she swallowed a fly but might have something to do with gasping for breath at the top of a hill so having mouth wide open!. Its the  middle of December for goodness sake why are the flies still here?

This mornings 6 mile run was damp, well that’s why I thought till I got home and realised that running in light rain for an hour actually makes you very wet. Yucky weather here in Devon today.

Our Christmas preparations continued today with me creating a new wreath


and a new decoration for the tree


Hubby and I played selotape (scotch tape) wars with Madam as we tried to wrap presents and she tried to do her science homework. Christmas Eve dinner was made and frozen. Red cabbage cooked and frozen for the big day and tonight’s job once Madam is in bed is the creation of the Christmas crackers.

Phew! Believe me this is not normal service. Traditionally (for this is the time of year for traditions) hubby and I wrap presents till the early hours on the 24th! Something very odd going on this year I am super organised and ahead of the game of course this could and probably will go all pear shape nearer the big day. But for now I will enjoy some smugness in my organisedness!

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    love the Christmas decorations! I think there is something in the air, as we’re remarkably organised for Christmas this year too. I’m not usually wrapping on Christmas Eve, but not too far before!

    Tell me about the red cabbage please! I`ve never cooked it though I love eating it and love the idea of cooking it in advance.
