I must have temporarily lost the plot, because I appear to have signed up for a marathon…

Movin’ on up

Hello stranger.

I have truly neglected my blog lately. Here’s a few poor excuses reasons why.

The moving house excuse.
What was originally estimated to be a 6 week process unfortunately will now be 6 months. This has meant all my spare time has been spent dealing with lawyers, insurance companies and generally stressing out. Pardon me while my brain explodes.

The moving house excuse….again!
In anticipation of actually moving (whenever it happens) me and the fella have been spending our evenings and weekends shopping for super exciting grown-up stuff such as toilets and paintbrushes and lawnmowers and hoovers, and have genuinely panicked at how little essentials we own as a couple.

The ‘I don’t feel like it’ excuse.
Pretty self explanatory really. In a nutshell,  I haven’t been in the mood to work out (especially in the heat) so haven’t wanted to blog about it either. However, now it has cooled down, work isn’t so busy, and the move is finally starting to get some pace. I’m back baby.

It will be mine. Oh yes. It will be mine.

Abandonment issues…

With the recent bank holidays, and with a busier life both inside and outside of work, I have neglected this blog the past fortnight. Please forgive me poor bloggy.

For any who are actually reading this, here are the things that have kept me away from blogging:

Work.
Work is mental. After taking on more work and after losing a member of staff, it’s been incredibly busy (in a good way though) and where I may have blogged on lunch before, I have instead been catching up with general internet chores such as paying bills ( and also very importantly, catching up on Desperate Housewives).

Moving
I am buying a house with my fella. After months of looking for our first buy, this past few weeks we finally made an offer on a house, had it accepted, met with our mortgage advisors, solicitors and estate agents, and have been swamped with a “Housey to-do list”. Very exciting, scary, and busy!

Gym.
Although I may not have been blogging about it, I did attend the gym twice over both bank holiday weekends. It was very busy, very hot, but at least I got there.

Anywho, there is my explanation. I’m back!

Running envy

I’ve just come across this blog – Running Man Wannabe – by a guy who, from the sounds of his About Page, is also a bit of a beginner in terms of running.
(Although his speeds certainly seem better than mine right now. You go fella!)

His blog is so dedicated to targets, monitoring times and speeds, and generally just keeping on top of things.

Hopefully over the next month or so when I start making my runs more regular, I will get to this level of blogging. I am seriously impressed. Time to up my game.
