Oops!

The first Monday of the year, my first British Military Fitness class of 2015 and first for Janathon this year.  Kit left out and all ready to go.  Then I  snooze my alarm one time too many this morning and the next thing I know it’s 5 to 9 and I’m too late. Oops!  Just as well it wasn’t tomorrow or younger son would have missed his mock GCSE maths exam.

By the time I was up and had got said son up, awake and wound up busy revising, I’d lost my slot to exercise as I had to stick around for a delivery and a meeting with a party-wall surveyor.  I got on with the depressing task of de-Christmasing, cleaning and tidying up.  It was all pretty physical stuff (honest) and included a wrestling match with a 5 foot Christmas tree.  I also added a late walk to the shop to get food. (Yes, I have still not organised a proper big food shop)

Yes, I could maybe have made it to running group or out for a run this evening but my priorities today were getting son back into ‘school’ routine ready for the next  two weeks of exams.  Tomorrow is another day.

Janathon day 5

1 mile return walk to shops,  carrying 4 bags of shopping on way home.

1 token plank, 1 Christmas tree wrestled with.

  4. that sounds like a lot of hard work to me – especially the housework 🙂

  5. Tree wrestling sounds like you qualify under the Highland Games Janathon category
