Huge apologies and thank you for all your lovely comments <3
I've been utterly remiss in my posting. This niggly hip has been a real pain since the blindfold run, well ever since I took that tumble really. One run will go fine with only minor pain and the next will leave me hobbling around for days. I'm at a loss and I couldn't bear to just keep posting moans and whinges! I've now had nearly five weeks without a proper run and the pain is only present sporadically so, after Christmas I'll try easing back into things.
I'm sure I've missed loads of graduation parties and exciting stuff in the last few weeks but I haven't been just couch-potatoeing, honest (well only when Strictly was on)😁 Have been busy with littlest dawg, who has ruptured her cruciate ligament, so I've had warm, furry company on my days on the IC. Booked in for the (extortionately, eye-wateringly expensive) operation this week and the poor little mite is set for enforced crate rest for 6 weeks post op. That should be fun! Bless her, she never complains. I'd be busy having a right old rant and moan.
During my own semi-enforced rest, I've been pondering the strange phenomenon that is shape shifting and decided that it's really not very fair. How is it, that during the 12 weeks it took me to complete c25k and a few weeks afterwards, I developed a svelte(ish), toned(ish), hourglass(ish) figure and yet within the 5 weeks of an on/off injury it has reverted to looking like a misshapen potato atop 2 chipolatas? C'est la vie I guess...
In other exciting news, I can confirm that I have poop-picked approximately 245 gifts, carefully hidden around the garden by the darling furries since my last post (I just worked it out, seven poops a day over say 5 weeks).
How interesting is my life?
Don't you wish you were me?
Why one pooch poops 3 times a day and one 4 times is still a mystery. They both eat the same amount but I digress... You see? I'm reduced to posting about dog poop when I have no running to report!
I must just say a huge thank you to Sofargoner, whose timely note made me realise how much I've missed all your banter and support. It will be a 'bit of a week' this week so I may probably still be a tad quiet. Not only is it the week of Fidget's big op but it will also be the first anniversary of my lovely Dad's death, followed by my birthday (46 +VAT since you ask), and then Christmas will be upon us. The week after I should be back to "normal"!
I'll be back, stalking the new graduates to ply with fizz and merriment I still have my stash of bubbles, balloons, tickertape and tiaras (and that's just for the gentlemen). Lurid pink pom poms have been added especially for SFG and will be available under the graduation tree on the day
I've seriously got to get myself back on track because that cheeky number one son has entered me for the OCR Major Series in March😨
Love and fuzzies all you wonderful peeplings
