A couple of months back the very nice people from ‘The New balance Team at Gung Ho’ asked me if I would be interested in running the British London 10K this year for free. I love anything FREE so said yes please. Quickly planned a girlie weekend in London with my friend and was set to go until the last couple of weeks where events have taken over.
Work has been stupid busy, Madam is going away with the school (to London) on Monday so I really need to be here to pack. I realised I was not going to make it, without some serious damage to my sanity and my family relationships. Sometimes I need to realise that I can’t do it all, as much as I want to and as hubby said last week when he cam in from work and found me, working on the lap top, icing cupcakes and making Madam’s dinner ‘sometimes you take on too much’. The penny dropped and so I fired off an email offering my apologies and felt so much better once I had done that. It is a shame I really wanted to do it and have a weekend away of course but guess there will be others. My first DNS, had to happen some time.
This week has been full of long work days, two club runs, and one cycle ride. My week was brightened by these cuties in the garden.
Last year madam collected the poppy seeds from the poppy heads in to a container and then promptly kicked it over, this is the result! Thinking of erecting a small fence round them so I do not mow them down when I next cut the grass.
Roll on the summer holiday. Seven work days and counting!
