Oh readers! I am suffering from major self-inflicted discomfort, caused by running 28kms this morning before breakfast. I've had panadol and I've cracked (prematurely) into my Easter bilby but I remain quite uncomfortable. So much so that I can't actually relax enough to catch some zeds, which I would dearly love to do. It IS Sunday afternoon after all and I only had about five hours' sleep last night so I am well and truly knackered. Haven't blogged on this site lately, neglecting it in favour of my running blog because, as you all know, I am completely consumed by this bloody Marathon training. I hope I don't hit the wall and blow out. Hopefully, a two-week holiday over Easter will be just what I need to bring me back into alignment. So, here are some recent photos from my life as it stands. Breakfast with Jemma, Amy & Kerry this week before work - and before Amy gives birth.
Urgent request for US-bound brother to bring back this edition of Vanity Fair… It has interesting articles you know!
Mum meanwhile, is in China, visiting gardens on a tour with a bunch of other garden enthusiasts. She keeps us up to date daily with her latest edition of her "chronicle". I have set up a blog for her but she hasn't quite worked it out so it remains empty. Here she is tucking in to Shanghai green tea "Haagen Dazs" ice cream. Hmmm.. I see Haagen Dazs has a Save the Honey Bee campaign going. Nice. I am a fan of the bee and we are planning to rent a hive for our garden. I don't know much about them but I DO know they are in danger and the earth NEEDS BEES!
I have been checking out the info about my uni degree that I am starting in July. My first subject is "Feature Writing" and amazingly, the text I require is available from the Book Depository, an on-line book retailer I learned about this week, based in the UK that ships to Australia with no shipping costs! I'm sorry to be a prophet of doom but I am sure the $16 I have paid for my text book via Book Depository will be an improvement on what I might possibly pay at the university book shop… Okay, let me try one more time to have a lie down for half an hour or I will be a total write-off before the 7pm news!
My friend Swellgal took this photo on her recent holiday in India - I love it, though it's a good reminder of the benefits of sun protection!
