Let's start how we mean to go on. 

Sunday was such a good day.

We completed our club paddles (they were doing 4 x 4k and I did 8k technique work) before heading off to coopers for a cheeky bit of cake for second breakfast.

Two coffees later and we were ready to attempt to keep a K2 upright. 

Connor accompanied us in his K1. Just to be sure we didn't disappear.

We might be wearing matching tops. 

It's cute actually. 

I've learnt so much over the past 4 months about the sport - and even two months ago I probably wouldn't have been able to keep that boat upright. 

Luckily for Alex things have changed.

But now I have a double bed. 

Making friends is easy with a library card. 

We had three new members of staff join us on the same day - so what better way to make them feel welcome than by taking them out for lunch at a slightly overpriced, slightly underwhelming chain where all I could eat was the superfood salad. 

you know work is getting serious when I throw my hair up into this fetching bun. 

Translation. Maintain a 5 metre radius,. 

We celebrated 4 months by driving for over two hours to look at his new car.. and then went for a lovely meal. Training afterwards was almost as bad as the calamari incident. I love The giggling squid so much, but it's not really a pre workout meal.

I got to paddle on Wednesday. It was such a lovely morning and I'm so glad I got to spend some of it outside.

The weather is definitely turning colder. 

Friday was fitness testing in the gym

It was tough - but I surpassed my expectations thankfully and got some scores I'm moderately okay with.

2 min reps press : 30
2 min reps pull : 31
max press : 55
max pull : 52.5
chins : 4

Given I started 4 weeks ago barely able to do a chin with a resistance band, I'm happy with my score of 4.

It's okay we can laugh about it. 

Pull is one I struggle with the most - it's an unfamiliar motion so I'm getting there.

'middle class' in a sentence
Connor and myself may have purchased some mince pies and clotted cream.

I'm sorry. 

I've finally ordered my new bedroom furniture so the below sight is one of the past. Look at the size of him. He's not easy to share a single bed with at all. 

Sometimes I like to dress as an old lady. Rocking my green chinos. 

This time of year is always a little tough. Christmas was my nans thing. She just was christmas. I miss her little routines and cheer. 

the cats love it when I get home from Claytons at around 3am. I always feed them. Because I'm a bad person.
