Gah, we’re having like, our WHOLE house rewired today (well, we were. It’s done now I think…), which meant we had 6 or so men crawling all over our house, in EVERY room (bar mine :P) ALL day. HURRUMPH!! I hate days like that 😦 they kept cutting the electricity out, the internet went…it was evil. AND they arrived at 8.15am! I’d literally only just left for my morning run (after an apple … yadda yadda).
The run was good though! 5 miles in 41.46mins 🙂 fastest mile was bang on 8.00 min/mile!! Maybe my speed is coming back 😀
When I got in, it was EGM time:
Isn’t it beautiful? I’m in love with a) the new camera, and b) the EGM. Combined = infatuation….
After breakfast, I took Poppy out for an hour and 10mins; we actually walked to the store so I could get Heat magazine (Tuesday is MAGAZINE DAY! ALL the weekly trash comes out :P) and some pasta sauce for my sister 🙂 Poppy didn’t enjoy it though – too many cars and strangers, cos the store is on a skanky housing estate 😦 so she couldn’t go off the lead. But meh, I figure a less-good walk is better than no walk!
When we got back, I helped my sister jump Tig in the field (I say ‘help’ – I actually just lent her my Garmin so she could time herself, and took a few photos).
When I got back inside, it seemed like the electrician bloke men had decided the kitchen was PARTY CENTRAL and they were all hanging out in there (with their papers all over my laptop :/)…anyway, Hannah decided she was going to go swimming cos the house was a bit crap, so I thought I’d tag along (after a bit of persuasion :p). That was right over lunch, so actual lunch was a little odd.
Pre-swim, I (was most definetly NOT hungry) had a carrot cake Clif bar (sent over by the lovely Jess a while back):
It was SO yummy! I know those things are pretty processed, but seriously, once in a while? Who cares! Twas worth it 😀
We swam for only 25mins, cos Poppy was at home with all the scary men and she didn’t like it 😦 but despite the short session, it was fun! I haven’t swum since last summer, so it was real nice to get back in. We had a good time!!
When we got back home, I still wasn’t hungry but I knew I needed some more calories, so I had a toasted whole wheat organic English muffin, with sunflower butter, almond butter and chocolate peanut butter, and a pear:
Delicious 😀 😀 I also demolished an apple:
After that, it was mucking out and tidying – tomorrow, we have (at 8.15am AGAIN) a PAINTER coming in to finally paint our hall! We shifted the stairs about 10years ago in our house, but never actually repainted it….until now…..
Snack was this loooovveeeely chocolate orange Nakd bar:
My ‘lunch’ had only been 2hrs earlier so I was pretty stuffed, but again, I knew I needed to eat. Plus who can refuse the natural, healthy, chocolate-orange flavour goodness!? It even counted as a portion of fruit 😀 (Dates, raisins, cashews, cocoa, natural flavour)
For my dindins, I had the rest of my basil tofu, with durum wheat (cooked in cinnamon, smoked garlic and stock), kale, kabocha, leek and parsnip:
As per usual, it was a proper incredible tasting meal!
Annnd also as per usual, later on I’ll have some dessert 🙂
Oh! Totally random story – so I was in the kitchen, blending my soon-to-be-oatgurt, when one of the electrician blokes goes ‘ay, someone’s at the door’. So I went to answer – who’s staring back at me? My MATHS teacher from when I was 15!! How weird is that!? Turns out one of the guys doing the electrics in our house goes to my old high school and was on work experience (15yr old boy re-wiring my house? Worrying.), and his form tutor – my old teacher – came to visit him to see how he was getting on! Ha, I was literally speechless when I saw him 😛
Have you ever had a random, ohmyIt’s-a-small-world-encounter like that?
Okay, day two of my photog-experimentation!! Lots of cat ones today 😀 Enjoy!
(Btw – this is just a random selection; I took over 170!!)
Bless her, she was quite nervous with all the men about; I think she looks really worried in the photo above 😦
