Cleaning (aargh) but good things as well!

Quick post today as I've spent the day being a grown up with grocery shopping and cleaning on the agenda.  I hate cleaning with a passion and never realised how lucky I was that Ash was happy to do it all but there you go, we never appreciate what we have until it's gone.  Anyway it needed doing but my biggest incentive is that the 6 year old is coming this weekend and he has a tendency to give it to me straight if he thinks I've been slacking and is very likely to walk in, look around and then give me a verdict I'd rather not hear so I've had to knuckle down and get on with it.  However I also have something I want to share and it's that, first thing this morning, and in the rain, I ran my second 28 minute run of the week.  Not only that but the app wasn't working and the lady who talks into my ear telling me when to run and when to walk and how much longer I have to go until I've finished had gone on strike.  The stop watch was still working so I knew where I was in the session but I had to be a grown up and think for myself.  You have no idea how proud I was when I finished.  And on top of that, yesterday I met up with a couple of friends one of whom I hadn't seen since lockdown began.  Right in the middle of our conversation she suddenly stopped and said 'Jane you look amazing and you look as though you have a new lease of life, what have you done'.  If you've been following this blog for the past few weeks you'll know that's exactly what's happened to me and you'll know how I've turned my thinking around and now feel I can look to the future with optimism and confidence so I told her all that and she said that was a wonderful outlook to have.  I could only agree and hope you do too.
