Family and domestic stuff

Our son M came home on Friday and stayed until Sunday. He hasn't managed to get away since Christmas, what with his job and doing up the house he and his fiancee now live in and also finally getting down to the dissertation for his M.Sc. So it was good to see him again.

On Saturday we went up to North Wales to see my Dad, who still does remarkably well, considering he's now 85. We chatted about family stuff and I showed him my pictures of the US, which I'd copied to M's laptop.

Otherwise it was a quiet weekend: lunch out on Sunday after M had set off back to South Wales and mooching around doing not very much today.

However, I did declutter 4 large cardboard boxes. Two went into the garage in case -- heaven forbid! -- I have to return my nice new computer for repairs. The other two were used to pack up the dead computer for return to Watford Electronics aka Savastore. Collapse )

Anyway, the dead computer is all packaged up and hopefully will be collected from my place of work on Wednesday. We shall see...

Exercise log

Time I ran for: 10 minutes
Time of day I ran: 7:00 pm
How I felt: Fine, also feel more cheerful after the run than before when I felt a bit blah.
Weather during the run: Coolish for the time of year and trying to rain.

Lovely wet, slightly musty vegetation smells as I ran. I'll do another 3 or 4 ten minute runs then increase the time/distance in accordance with my programme (Couch potato to distance runner).
