Juneathon Day 23: the one with some peace and quiet

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope that everyone who reads this had a great weekend. I can’t believe it’s Monday morning again. The weekend seemed to fly by, let’s hope that Monday does too.

So, what did I get up to yesterday? Did I have a productive day? Did I manage to make protein banana bread? Did I spent far too much time staring at a computer screen?

My Sunday started with me sleeping through my alarm. Impressive considering I sleep right next to my phone, the excitement of Saturday clearly wore me out #grannyEmma

I had what can only be described as a quiet Sunday morning. I remembered to wash my bed sheets and put them out to dry before it rained. While the washing machine was doing its thing – I have so much appreciation for whoever invented washing machines – I worked my way through a basket of ironing. Getting these two rather tedious chores ‘ticked off’ meant that I could spend the rest of the morning doing what I wanted. I was minutes away from heading out for a walk when the heavens opened.

My Sunday afternoon could be described as boring but productive. I spent a couple of hours working my way through some of the manuscript corrections I’d been sent earlier in the week. Once I’d reached the stage I could no longer concentrate and my brain had stopped working, I did some research and drafted out a couple of guest blog posts. Have you ever deleted a blog post? I always write my posts in Word and then copy and paste them into WordPress. Yesterday, I somehow deleted a more or less complete post. So frustrating!

My evening was equally as unexciting. I watched the first half of the England v Cameroon match but switched over when Andy Murray’s doubles match started. I packaged up some FleaBay sales and relisted all the items that didn’t sell. I packed my bag for work, made myself dinner, wrote this epic blogging masterpiece and then spent an hour catching up on Holby City.

I didn’t manage to protein banana bread; I was missing a vital ingredient, eggs!

 I hope that everyone else had a more exciting Sunday.

Random photo from Day 23

I spotted this gem of a photo on Farcebook on Sunday morning. The new apricot parkrun t-shirts are definitely brighter than I’d realised.

I've no idea

I’ve no idea what I was doing or why I look so confused, but I’m hoping that the second photographer didn’t capture any more action shots.

Best thing spotted on the Internet on Day 23

I love Andy Murray so this made my Sunday.

I’ve no idea how Lopez was standing up at the end.

Cumulative Juneathon Distance: 19.07 km

A rather random question but what do you think of the updated parkrun website? I’ve seen mixed reviews. At least the map now appears to work.

 If you had the option of watching either women’s football or Andy Murray play tennis, what would choose?  I obviously went with the Murray match but it sounds like the slightly controversial women’s football match was a more popular choice.

      I’ve now developed a sports preference ranking system:

      1. Cricket (only because I can always hope that England will win)
      2. Tennis (only if Andy Murray is playing)
      3. Athletics (used to be #1 but I no longer trust a lot of what I’m watching)
      4. Football (depends who is playing)
      5. Any other sport I can understand (this rules out a lot of sports)

    I wish people would just stop moaning about things- eg the parkrun website. I’ve seen so many people whinging about it and I just want to say to them to get over it- it’s an update and the old one is gone.
    I’d watch the women’s football- I am not really an Andy Murray fan- he’s so miserable! I do like a bit of tennis but I’d choose football over that usually.

      People seem to love to moan about parkrun. I’ve no idea why as at the end of the day it’s free. I’ve stopped following the parkrun group on Facebook as the discussions got so repetitive. People asking for advice; not a problem. People starting a discussion just for the sake of triggering a heated debate; not so great. I used to think Andy Murray was miserable, then I met him. I must confess that I don’t usually watch women’s football but I have been watching the World Cup.
