Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.

Weekend round up

…so what did I do this weekend that fulfilled those goals I typed out last week ?

  • did a 15km run with Charlie on Saturday. It was a slow run, I coughed quite a bit, but managed to finish. I am really hoping that slow steady progress will win my race.
  • I was on call, and did some work (welcome Baby Jody and Baby Austin), so I worked on the bank balance.
  • I did some sewing – I managed to make myself a very simple shirt, and I cut out some cute masks for Thandi’s birthday party (yes, I know, I am 4 months early, but I’m being prepared!) which I will glue together tonight.

I am ok after the weekend, wish there was more time every day, but 24 hours is all we get. I did intend to get another run in, but I was foiled by the work on Sunday, and it got seriously hot yesterday, there was no way I could have run on the afternoon without melting into a messy puddle on the pavement. So there we go. Project Save this Birdie is underway.

Well done.

Saw a couple at a race with T-shirts on that said: “couples that run together stay together”

Got to ask – does the magic of holding a new born stay that magical if you hold them all the time? There is just nothing like a brand new baby…

Ah, it’s very special, but thankfully no effect on broodiness!

Ah, new babies. I actually stay away from babies these days. I am over the breastmilk thing and new babies still get it going.
4 months is not too early in my books. If you count the number of available weekends to get all the sewing and crafting done, it is not that long. Good on you for forward planning.
Good to hear you are making headway to positivity.

Yes, that’s exactly my thinking – I am on call virtually every second weekend from now until her party, so I better get moving!

Yah for new babies and work. I understand the need to prepare in advance for birthdays. Well done on getting the run done despite not being 100%

Love the idea of ‘Save the Birdie’ project! I may introduce ‘Save the Nyamazela’. And on the racing front I’m always told it’s better to be the tortoise than the hare – remember who finishes the race in that story.
