We’re already a week in to March so my resolve to write more this year is..not going so well. I have lots of ideas though so surely that counts for something! February flew by, the joy of a short month, and we’re now racing towards Easter terrifyingly fast. On the one hand, yes please hurry up warm weather, but on the other, woah hold on nelly, I have way too much to get done this year for it to already be 1/4 over.
My February looked a little something like this…
- I ran a lot. Well, not frequently, but hit a total of 54.5 miles with a couple of double-digit long runs in there. Hooray! The Falmouth half is now just 10 days away and while I’m not feeling 100%, I am happy with the training that I’ve done so far.
- Daffodils brightening up the flat with aggressively yellow blooms.
- Enjoying a very lovely Indian at Maharaja, Newquay for mother-in-law’s birthday
- Played a ‘friendly’ netball match. Ha ha.
- Played another 2 matches. Got 1 point in one, lost the other horrendously
- Had a very rushed Pancake Day which definitely needs repeating before next year because it is the Best Day
- It was Valentine’s Day at some point I think
- Niece #1 turned 6, niece #2 turned 2, and nephew #2 turned 1. We didn’t get to see any of them on the actual day (#cornwalllife) but Whatsapp is pretty great, isn’t it.
- The sudden, unexpected loss of a family member left us all in a bit of shock. Another time when living so far away can be quite painful.
- and at the end of the month THE BEAST FROM THE EAST arrived rather dramatically in Cornwall, causing actual chaos. The shelves in Aldi are still looking a bit bare. In all seriousness, I don’t think I’ve ever seen snow fall so thick and fast before, even in my years living Up North, and the disruption it caused was no laughing matter. My minibreak to Lisbon was cancelled, but there’s another post to come on that.
Aside from the freak weather, it really is starting to feel like spring here in Cornwall. The mornings and evenings are getting longer and the sun is shining almost every day. Maybe this week I’ll put my big coat away.
