Today started with a Sophiecat wake up around 5am, I am an early riser most days but 5am on a Sunday was just a little too much, she was quite persistence with her meows and I finally gave just before 6am to get up and fed her and as I was up I made myself some coffee and finished off some work that I didn’t get done yesterday.
I went for a swim at the lake at 9am which was a little chilli (air temperature) but once in the water it was glorious, the lake has a small little loop of 200m and a large big loop of 800m, I have swam the big loop a few times but generally I tend to swim the small loop multiple times, I have a mind fuck when it comes to the big loop as feel like I’ll get half way round and not be able to finish. One of my goals for this transformation is to swim a big lap front crawl without stopping…so I do need to work on my brain talk to achieve this.
Once home I had a quick breakfast and then took the folks to Cleethorpes, it’s an old fashion seaside resort, it’s about an hours drive, thankfully we chose a route that wasn’t too busy. We parked up and walked (very slowly as my dad has mobility issues) to see the (prime) Meridian line which runs through Cleethorpes. Then we went for the traditional fish and chips on the pier.
It was a beautifully warm day with sunny skies and nice to get out and about. Having days like this makes me realise that although things aren’t as I would like them to be, there are lots of positives to be taken from my current situation.
When we got home it was go go go to get ready for the week ahead, I’ve learnt very quickly over the last few weeks that getting stuff ready the night before leads to a less stressful morning and subsequently the rest of the day.
Look for the rainbows after the rain…
