This road sign just along our lane has been like this for as long as l can remember. A bit wonky, letters missing, but l guess it gets people where they want to be. I snapped this yesterday as l ran past on my first full 2 mile run of the year. Last week l was footering about with short runs (and some days no run at all) due to ice on road and any other excuse l could come up with. Well this week l am determined to get back into harness and run 2 miles every day.
I now have my phone on radio and have music and Terry Wogan with me while l run. Makes a big difference to the boredom factor. Anyway, l survived the run yesterday and really felt good afterwords. I hit the work table with gusto (poor Gusto!) and drew out new patterns and even ironed a pile of fabric ready to work with.
Next l got totally carried away and scuttled off to Ikea in Glasgow and invested in two new cupboards for HQ. A fabulously big glass fronted bookcase to hold completed stock and also a deep drawer unit for storing fabrics. Am l being prepared to protect my goodies from mice – you bet your boots l am!
Have no idea how l am going to build the damn things. Couldn't lift the boxes in the first place. However l feel good that l have made the step to actually buy them and in that way think about future use of HQ again and protecting my things there. I will still work from the house till Spring l think as l have set up diningroom as a studio for now. Do like having the stove on, and couldn't upset Hank (white cat) by moving out while he likes the fire on. Unfortunately the organisation of space etc does not carry through to the spare bedroom. Here all the stuff that should be out in HQ is stacked up. No way could a guest stay there. So much for the organised home.
Off to run……………
