Achilles, sore, very sore.

Despite doing stretches and calf work….

A wise woman, which is not usually me re running, will be doing less running this week.

Twice when I have been running in the last week, there have been things on the radio about this sports person who did this to their Achilles.

Hmmm,  felt the running gods were telling me something. Continue reading

Bliss…..

Shaved corn beef on Poppyseed wholemeal bread, with avocado and coleslaw..

And a piece of Parmigiano on it as well……

The sandwich in question..

With a small piece of Whittakers creamy milk chocolate with my tar black coffee for afters….

Sitting in the sun on the balcony.

Especially as its a nice sunny day, I just finished my run , kids are at school till 4pm , its my day off and I am making Nutella Crostata!!

I also saw some real pecorino at the supermarket………

And, and , and, and best of all…….I brought a sliver of real Parmigiano from Parma….

Not that NZ parmesan is not nice, but is not quite the same…

that cheese!!

that cheese!!

I couldn’t control myself and bit a chunk off it, a bit naughty…

What more could a girl want?

As I was walking home after my run with my groceries, I was thinking just that….

Bliss in small things…

I always like walking down the side streets to our street as its so treey and leafy and you wouldn’t think at the end is a main road…

this is bliss....beautiful and cheery!!

this is bliss….beautiful and cheery!!

For me this is important to remember because some days it is hard to find the bliss……

Its like the black dog is waiting to eat my corned beef!

lots of black dogs

Most days he isn’t around but some days he is and no matter how good the corned beef is that day, I can’t see that 😦

I know in my heart its good but my head tells me other things…..

Silly things that later make you cringe or shake your head!!

Running is great but you can’t run forever:)

So today I appreciate the bliss and the good things and leave you with some piccies of my bliss:)

Enjoy!!

lovely!!
