Yes, rain. You heard me. Rain, rain, rain. More rain. Big drops, little drops, soft drops, heavy drops, fast drops, slow drops. Yawn…. This is a little movie I took at mum's just after Christmas but the situation remains the same today. Wet, wet, wet...
Back to work this week after a super duper Christmas/New Year break. It has been hard to go back. I love my job in that I love my co-worker Cherry and I love my boss but I feel I want to do something different. I am right into my family history currently and am really enjoying reading history also. I'm reading about the formation of the original thirteen US colonies, in an attempt to understand how/why my ancestors ended up where they did (in Salem, Massachusetts and in Cumberland & Gloucester Co., New Jersey). I have also been reading historical novels about Henry 6th and now about Richard 3rd. I just find it all so fascinating. How can I include history into my daily work life? Speaking of history, here are some historical photos of moi that my brother scanned & sent me.
This is my 5th birthday, wearing my little blue velvet number
This is me as a tortured, angst-ridden teen
Goofing off in my youth (as opposed to in my senior years)
Channelling my inner Nigella…
I did not go running today because I have bruised my heel, tripping over the dog and don't want to exacerbate the problem. That sounds like the perfect excuse anyway, to justify being cosied up indoors with a coffee rather than running through puddles in the teeming rain, don't you agree? I did return to the pool this week for a swim session which proved to be quite difficult. The swimmers in all those other lanes make it look so easy! Will I ever get my breathing right?
