Well the weekend’s here and so far it’s been a good one.

Vic and I went into the center of London this morning and I had this crazy idea of running home while Vic caught the tube back.  Given that the longest run I’ve done in the last 3 years is 18 minutes the 43 minute run I did today gave the old body a bit of a shock!  I ran from Westminster to home – I have no idea how far it is and it doesn’t really matter – it was just a looooong way!  It’s a really sunny day today (most of the time) and I was shattered when I got home…….. Vic only beat me home by about 10 minutes! lol!

Even better was the fact that I got home just in time for the kick off of the All Black – Springbok tri-nations match smile  An absolutely thrilling game that saw the AB’s come out on top and keep alive their championship hopes.  I heard on the TV that Australia have to beat South Africa by 26 points next week to take the title.  Fingers crossed that they don’t!

Tonight we’re off to our friend Angus’ place for his birthday party which this year has a beach party theme.  It’ll be an absolute riot without a doubt but with Vic being with child (hee hee) I doubt that we’ll stay long enough to see the gossip-worthy antics 🙁

Hope your weekends are going well and if the party is entry-worthy I’ll speak to you tomorrow wink

    Good job on the run!!

    And, two miles is good, that’s normally what I do. Sometimes I’ll do three and once I did four but decided against that. grin

    My ‘current’ wants me to do the 9k run with him next Spring. Suuuure. wink

    And, forgive the shameless plug but….I was hoping you’d do the project I have going, you take such wonderful photos, you know.

    Thanks Bekah smile You should be able to handle 9km with a bit of practice :dead:

    As for your project, I’d love to but to be honest at the moment time is too tight for five shots (and all the thinking that goes with them) I’ll keep an eye on the entries though and if I find the time in the future I’ll be there!  😎

    Thanks for visiting Lorissa!

    No rugby! bummer.  At least here in the UK we get pretty good coverage of NZ and super12 matches 🙁

    It’s not often I say this but I’ll be supporting SA as well :vbg:
