New Year’s Day

Happy New Year!

I hope the holiday season was kind to you.  I had a pretty quiet one, at home with the ‘rents for a couple of days, where Santa visited (spot his footsteps in the snow) and the sun set on a lovely day,  then headed back to London for a bit of culture and the New Year Celebrations.

The culture happened, sadly the New Year Celebrations did not…  Oh well.  2010 was a pretty rubbish year, ending in an almost identical way to how started…  Let’s hope 2011 is better to all of us eh?

Anyway, time to update you on the trials of the treadmill…  I’m up to week three of my Couch to 5k plan.  And yes I have been for a plod on it today!  Starting the year as I hope to go on… despite the slightly fuzzy head and limbs that would much rather be curled up under a blanket in front of the TV, I have completed another plod.  My personal best this year too!  Hehe!   And yes I realise for some of my fellow bloggers that week three of the Cto5k plan equates to just 9 mins of plodding over 30 mins which is really pretty rubbish, particularly for those fools brave enough to partake in the Janathon event, but that’s 9 mins more than I did yesterday!  Good Luck to all the Janathon-ers by the way…  I shall enjoy reading all about it.

In other 40 for 40 news, I completed my December treat and culture items from the list.  The treat you already know was a luxury mani pedi, which I had just in time for Christmas…

Ahh, pretty toes...

And the culture actually had a Brucie Bonus as I did two things!  On Mon 27th I went with Debs and Stephen to The Barbican to see the London Concert Orchestra play some of the magical movie music of John Williams.  To say we had goosebumps throughout is an understatement!  As we flew along with Superman, rode a Nimbus 2000 with Harry Potter, relived Han Solo and Princess Leia falling in love, got moved by the Memoirs of  Geisha and sighed at the sincerity of Schindlers List, it was the extraordinary emotions of E.T. that ended the evening.  Absolutely Brilliant!

Wednesday 29th, brought the Brucie Bonus.  Along with Kate G, we went to the London Science Museum.  I haven’t been there since I was around 8 years old!  It was much more interesting this time!  A gentle meander, a chat, a few buttons pressed and an amazing 3D movie at their Imax was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.  Although, next time I might try to remember to avoid the school holidays!

Right, I’m off to try to find some healthy food…  failing that, some Chocolate and Booze!

’till the next time…
