Winter miles…

“Winter miles make summer smiles”

That’s what ‘they’ say, isn’t it?
RUBBISH!

Although I’m never sure who ‘they’ really are. Because if ‘they’ are anybody at all ‘they’ must just go around all the time just saying random stuff that may or may not be true.

Winter miles make summer winter smiles.

I mean. Why wait?

Over the last couple of days we’ve had some unexpected snow and I had an unexpected message from a blogger contact, Louise (aka abradypus) saying she was going to be in the area for a parkrun on the 27th Dec. Having followed her blog but never met in person, this sounded like an ideal excuse, if one were needed, to try out a new (to me) parkrun in Beeston.

There’s some winter smiles for you.

And then I got home to find the long awaited cooker had at last arrived. More smiles (but no miles).

I could write a book on this.
I’d call it…

The Saga Of The Aga

…except it’s not an aga… but, “The Book About The Cooker” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.
On second thoughts, I’m not going to write a book, suffice to say cookers have arrived and been taken away a-plenty, companies have lost money, emails have been sent, telephone conversations have been… You really don’t need to know this…. I’ll move on…

After an evening of game-playing and kids-movie-watching last night, I got up bright and early this morning, put my shorts on (but most definitely also hat and gloves) and covered a 9km taking in the delights of my favourite hill…

Why wait? Enjoy now.
