Firstly, i am trying to decide whether to enter the Glasgow Women's 10k. A couple of women from work are and i would love to get fit and run for a charity but i hate running! Its painful...it hurts my throat, gives me chest pain, headache....give me any other sport any day. All that aside, we did begin training! On Wednesday we went out for 25mins at lunchtime. Thursday and Friday i went out by myself after work. I can run for about 13minutes without stopping at the moment which is pretty rubbish LOL Everytime im out running i think to myself "there's no way im running the 10k" but then i get home and have a rest and feel good for doing exercise and i think "yep, i'm definitely doing the 10k."
In other news, DH is going home to Canada on Wednesday for 2 weeks. All a bit of a last minute decision. Its our nephews 1st birthday on the 15th so he really wanted to be home for that plus the winter weather over here of rain, grey skies, rain, rain and more rain really gets to him! He needs that blue sky and snow! So i'll be dateless on valentines! Im actually thinking of following him over on the 21st just for a week. Then we can travel home together on the 27th. I can't decide what to do (can you tell im bad with decisions). I can't get 2 weeks of work at the moment, im too busy. The annoying thing is you pay the same for 1 week as you do for 2. However, the flights are a good price at this time of year. I'll decide this weekend!
On Wednesday we started a new youth club at our church. We have one on a Sunday but there are too many teenagers coming along now who need something else. So we are running a youth club every Wednesday night which i have to go to straight from work. Its a huge commitment as the youth work is generally left in the hands of 3 of us and we have to drag other people to help out. Seeing as our church has about 40members, its a shame noone else will commit.
So all this has left virtually no time for stitching this week. In fact, the only piece i did work on was my Dear Diary SAL. Here's this weeks progress (basically the house and the grass)This lighthouse really looks like one about 10mins away from where we live. This is the Cloch lighthouse. See the similarities?!Today will be a cleaning / tidying day and then tonight we are going to our friends house for dinner which'll be nice. Have a great weekend!
