I'm terrible about taking M swimming - need to go more regularly. She is very confident and really enjoys it but because we don't do lessons at the moment we never get into the habit of going weekly. Well done Sophie!!!
23 degrees today - its April - this is crazy!!! Taking full advantage but it does feel very weird and I really feel for my parents as the farm is in major drought now!
Exciting re. your trip Ttid!! Who was it who said they might move to the States? TB? I lived away from my family for 8 years but at least one of my siblings lived in London for much of that time. I missed them a lot but was made easier by knowing we'd always move home at some point. Hubby told me yesterday he feels more like a NZ'er than a Brit now which was nice to hear! Means that he feels settled here despite the on-going job stuff!
Arrrggghhh after 2 weeks of hubby not working, he went back to work yesterday (agency work) and he's hurt his back properly this time. I am really at a loss to know how to handle another setback. He is really low and its just blimmin awful. He now won't be able to do his day at his old job which he usually does on a Friday and we need the money - can't stress to him as there's noting he can do.
On the positive side (I need all the postives I can get) my jog to daycare and back with the buggy was good. Definitely feeling fitness returning.
Glad you have an appointment sorted Brookie, sounds like its been a tough time ((())). I'm the last person who should give running advice but if you don't get injured currently I'd stick with the ain't broke idea. Esp as it sounds like running will help your frame of mind at the moment and embarking on something that could lead to short term injuries could be counter-productive to your overall well-being. WIll be interested to know some of the more knowledgeable ladies feedback though as I run like you do but get plenty of injuries!
Caro I love your run pictures and descriptions - made me laugh! Also reminded me how much I miss Ikea!! Nothing like that here.
Lovely weekend at the farm and lots of wonderful time with my family as sis and her kids were staying as well. Back at easter so not too long.
