Had some lovely news last night from one of my best friends up in Stoke, Kris –  she’s finally set a date for her wedding. Kris and her partner John will be getting married on 23rd June of this year and she’s asked me to be chief bridesmaid, all very exciting! 🙂 This date is also my sister’s birthday, my good friend Sushma’s birthday and also the birthday of the son of one my friends from Uni, so quite a popular date with people for various reasons and a wedding anniversary I will not end up forgetting!

Mum and I availed of the Orange Wednesday offer today and had lunch at Pizza Express. We both had an Il Padrino Romana Pizza and shared a mixed salad, all very yummy!

I promised myself yesterday while I’m still off work this week that I would do my walks during the day instead and not be heading out in the dark like I seem to have done the last few days! Famous last words, the day just seemed to run away and then before I knew it it was getting dark again! It had been a fairly pleasant day all day today, cold, but OK otherwise, or, at least that was until I decided I better go for my walk. Not only was it dark as it was 7pm but it was really wet and windy again too, it seemed to come out of nowhere. I still managed my walk though and did 3.18 miles in just over 46 minutes. I saw just one runner out but quite a few walkers, at least 5, which I was quite surprised to see with the weather as it was. I had wrapped up warm and once was out I was OK although by the time I got home my thighs were feeling pretty numb!
