My Birthday

Well yesterday it was my birthday and I turned the ripe old age of 34. I had a nice relaxing day, went out to a quilt shop for a look, grabbed Subway for lunch, then pottered for the afternoon.

Most evening's now, I usually find myself knitting or sewing so last night we decided to watch a movie. Shock horror. Aaron raced out and brought a mud cake and some custard from the supermarket, yes we brought it. I don't keep the ingredients in the house to make it.

We actually sat down, watched Lord of the Rings - Fellowship of the Ring and ate mud cake with custard. It was lovely and I felt extremely refreshed today.

Now this brings me to my birthday present. Aaron isn't big on buying birthday presents, so I went out last weekend and brought this:

Yes it's an el cheapo MP3 player. Now you may be wondering why I purchased this, well my girlfriend and I started a running programme last week. It's called C25K . The forum I am on has a number of women who have done this successfully and lost a heap of weight doing it.

I will keep this blog updated with how I am going.

Wish me luck
