Good morning and I hope that you are having a great Saturday morning whatever you are doing. When this blog is published I’ll hopefully have handed out a lot of finish tokens in the correct order. If the morning has gone really well, I won’t have had any clumsy moments. Arrrraaaggghhhhh #panic
So, what did I get up to during Day 28 of Juneathon? Did I manage to avoid throwing my slightly temperamental work laptop out of a window? Did I manage to avoid the temptation of working outside?
Thanks to the joys of flexible working, the day started with an extra hour in bed. Waking up at 06:30 felt far more civilised than at 05:30. I got up, had a shower, got dressed and made myself actually eat something for breakfast. I then spent what felt like forever trying to get my work laptop to ‘talk’ to my RSA fob. After a minor meltdown where I had visions of having to head into the office, I finally managed to get my laptop connected to the work network.
The morning flew by relatively quickly, so quickly I only realised it was lunch when my stomach started to make some loud rumbling noises. I decided to be brave and to heat up the mussels I’d bought in Sainsbob’s earlier in the week. Even though I followed the instructions and probably overcooked the mussels, I still spent the next hour or so feeling like I was about to be ‘unwell’.
Following a reasonably productive afternoon, I decided that I’d done enough work for one week and exchanged my work laptop for my personal laptop. I caught up on some blogmin and then decided to walk to the Post Office to drop off some parcels. I’d been wearing a fleece as it was cold inside my house; halfway to the Post Office I realised wearing a fleece was a definite wardrobe error. It was boiling and I was doing a beetroot impression when I got home.
Highlights of what was left of Day 28 (can you tell I’ve had enough of staring at a computer screen?) included me entering the Vitality Big Half and booking accommodation for the weekend. If I don’t manage to run I can still head down to London for the weekend. I’ve heard that the location of the unhappiest three months of my life – Southwark Training Centre – is being redeveloped, so I’ll go and have a look. I’ll also visit some of my old Marylebone haunts.
Random Photos from Day 28
Another failure on the photo taking front. I’m sure I’ll take some while before and after parkrun, Sutton Park always looks gorgeous when it’s sunny.

I’m quite lucky in that since I’ve been taking the pill, I haven’t experienced period pain. I have no idea what will happen when I have to stop taking the pill.
I’m not sure how many people follow the Conservation UK, so I thought I’d share this article here.
