1. The purchase of this mug
And the consumption of tea from it.
2. The receipt of this email from Park Run
Proof that I just scraped through and ran 5km in under 30 minutes. Quite an achievement for me as running is my Everest.
3. The arrival of this postcard
Balwyn is the otherwise nondescript suburb in which my dad and stepmum reside. Why anyone would feel the need to produce postcards from this locale is both baffling and hilarious. Dad picked this up at the postoffice and knew I would appreciate its lameness.
4. The existence of these two blondes
With whom I can have wildly inappropriate conversations in public, sit with in silence as we devour hot chips and then take a much needed afternoon nap with. Which all happened at the races on Saturday (except for the napping, that was done at home).
5. This humble entry into the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Flower Show
Have you ever seen anything more adorably mediocre?
6. The absolutely BANANAS print on Claire’s dress
For obvious reasons. And because bananas are an oddly important fixture in my life; I have one for breakfast everyday and my housemate and I are named after Australia’s most famous Bananas, B1 and B2.
Obviously there were countless other reasons I smiled including but not limited to; a certain cake I baked, a certain bearded man I like, a breakfast to which pancakes were central and a choreographed living room dance routine I performed with friends.
And a few reasons I didn’t smile include a run-in my iPhone had with a wet beverage, a run-in I had at the gym and the news that a dear loved one hasn’t been very well. Get well soon. But that’s not the point of this post.
I hope this week brings you many reasons to smile.
Sub 30 min 5k!! That is fantastic! I too have a lot of pride in meeting running milestones like that and I remember my first sub 30 5k very clearly. Hurray! (now I would struggle to get out of bed and make a cup of tea in 30 mins… but this isn’t about me!).
Thanks very much 🙂 For some reason running has been the hardest thing to master?! I’d rather do 3 Spin classes in a row than run 5km! But I’m getting there…
Haha now I want a cup of tea.
Sub 30mins! You are a boss!!!!
Thanks lady! I imagine that’s how long it takes you to cycle 100ks?!
I wish!!!! Running is not my forte – I say this as I was barely able to make it to my first ever 5.05s 1km at intervals this morning. Ok rest period starts ….. Now. Dead. Dying. Mah GAWD. Unsustainable speed hahaha
Isn’t it great?! And it’s HUGE! Takes me ages to finish a cup of tea.
