Bits and bobs

Jeez, it’s been a month since I last blogged. I’ve missed it from time to time over the month, but life has been so full-on I haven’t had the brain-space for clearly-worded thoughts!

Life has been really busy, but in that ‘awesome moving things forward’ kind of way, so it’s been exciting and good.

We are getting a new kitchen installed in a couple of weeks. We planned our kitchen not long after we bought the place just over a year ago, and it feels great to finally be putting our plans into action. The kitchen lay-out isn’t really changing at all – we like that it is semi-open plan, but still tucked out of the way when we are in the living room. We are getting all new cupboards and drawers, benches, cooktop and oven, fridge. I think it’s going to look amazing!

I’ve been training for the Christchurch Marathon 10km event. It’s been nice to have something to aim for when I’m running, it pushes me and keeps me focused. I ran a really good 8km last weekend, and a 10km today. My legs felt great and it was a nice smooth run. I’m looking forward to next Sunday.

We’ve been really busy socially too, lots of different events and fun things to do – movies and dinners and what-not.

And then there’s been heaps of skating, little trips here and there, Bronwen just started playing ice hockey, not to mention busy busy busy at work (but in a good way, interesting fun stuff).

It almost feels like we are spiraling up out of the holding pattern we’ve been in for the last year or so, finally moving all our little plans and dreams forward. Slowly slowly we are making progress.
