Right I've just sent out one of my mini me's to find out what time my neighbours are showing up. It's between 5 and 6, so I'm betting we might not see midnight.
Also I'm in my element in providing the food. I actually love cooking when I have the time, space and money to do it. I never follow recipes, just make it up.
And I think mulled wine is on the cards.
10 miles done, beautiful weather out there!
We were running along one of the forest trails and suddenly this rather heavy set fake tanned man came running towards us, he was naked apart from running shoes, multicoloured pants, yes pants, and fluro gloves.
It was such a sight that I kind of opened my mouth before having any idea what would tumble out. 'That's certainly a New years resolution!' WTF did I say that for?! Under very laboured breathing he replied "Yes it is".
I salute you multi-coloured pants running guy. He probably saw an overdressed woman running towards him wearing sushi on her head. (I've mentioned my sushi running hat before).
I'm glad he had the sense to keep his hands warm.
Oh, happy new year btw. I am going to cook: stuffed pork joint, red cabbage in balsamic vinegar, peppered and buttered leeks, mushy peas, apple and cider sauce, and gravy.
Followed by an orange and cranberry pudding.
Uh oh, underestimated the size of the joint. I'm going to have to stuff the roasties up its arse.
Presentation is everything.
Ice cold Prosecco, don't mind if I do! I've already thrown semolina round the kitchen when I was tossing the spuds (only on the weekends, in a leather catsuit)
It's a very shapely bottle.
Damn, That is one sexy bottle
Told you! Bloody nice too. I'm perusing all the online running stores looking for the cheapest price on Ghost 4, 5 &6.
Rotating 2 pairs of running shoes isn't enough in this weather.
I'm reading 'Why be happy when you could be normal?' by Jeanette Winterson (wrote 'Oranges are not the only fruit' in her early 20's for those that don't recognise her name).
I'm only a little bit in but I like her take on 'storytelling' and why she writes.
I've also gone from running stores to Fat Face and wondering why Cotswold Outdoor has FF stuff on sale that the FF website doesn't. Also would like to give Likeys a mention if you don't know it.
FF is (trying to be) a bit pretentious for me generally, but there are some things that catch my eye.
I'm well into Joe Browns at the moment, not the best quality but eclectic.
Got my run in before they start the pheasant shoot. Wussbag will be hiding under the table shaking when the gunshot starts.
Went out with one collie ended up with two, one of the neighbouring farm dogs ran the last half mile with us. She knows her way back.
Just as I settled down to look at the risk assessments for the aquathlons, tears and arguments ensued, oh how I'm looking forward to the teenage years.
Anyway I checked the online and paper entries, numbers for the series are looking healthy already. If anyone from in here in the SW area wants to play, let me know.
Back to work tomorrow...
Ok, a bit of a waxing lyrical post for the new year.
This is based on the questions I get asked most often by phone and email for the club.
