A review of my post naming scheme as you can see!
So what has happened this week?
Monday night I cycled to IKEA in the rain to return some stuff we’d bought which was extra, somehow we had calculated we needed 8 baskets for our wardrobes, we needed 3…..
I had another quick run on Tuesday at lunch time, and was planning to repeat the feat on Thursday, but instead got volunteered for a yoga class a work. I thought, “why not?” and went for it. I kind of expected and both did not expect it to be a lot tougher than anticipated (it was). Also, I did not need reminding, but it turns out I’m not very nimble, so theres some work to do there.

Project (nearly complete), we settled down for some beers which M&H bought for us, both of which are on my untapped, and one of which was a “English breakfast beer”, with actual tea, white beans and marmalade in….
