While I’m at it, what is it with all the people who walk 3-4 a breast on a narrow path and then refuse to move as I run towards them!, they are either stupid or completely obvious to everything and anyone around them (or both!), would it really be that difficult to go in single file as I run past!?. This happens to me numerous times on every single one of my runs, “it’s ok I’ll go up on the grass verge and run through the rabbit holes and uneven ground and risk getting injured just because of your ignorance!”. One of these days I’m going to hold my ground and just run through them! (anyway rant over - I feel better for getting that off my chest!).
As per normal I’ve set myself a running challenge. This time it is to try and run 2021 miles in 2021 for Northampton Hope Centre (who help and support the homeless in my local area). This equates to 40 miles every week this year! (which is quite a lot!). Running has kept me sane (sort of!) the past couple of months, although I am starting to get a few niggles!. If you wish to read about why I’m doing this please have a read of my JustGiving page; https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/running2021milesin2021fornhc
Lewis has been alright (just been Lewis really!). His bloods have been a bit low, but on a positive note he had his 1st Covid vaccination mid Jan, which was a relief and a bit of a weight off our mind. We are still awaiting ours though!, we are probably at the bottom of the list as is always the case with carers! (who would look after Lewis full time if we got Covid and was very poorly or worse?!).
On a plus side Kira has managed to start part loaning a horse (Libby) at a local stable and this has made her really happy, and given her an outlet the past few weeks away from the house and from studying for her GCSE’s.
There appears to be light at the end of this very dark tunnel and like everyone we can’t wait to get back to normal (whatever that is!) and see family and friends etc. It’s been a long road, but hopefully we are closer to the end than the beginning.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, it’s extremely appreciated. Writing down a few things now and then, seems to help me a bit with my mental health.
I wish all of you the very best in the next few months.
Take care and stay safe.
