Time flies !!

Blimey ! Here I am again and another week has gone by since I posted. I am being rather lax in my writing recently. My running is taking up so much time and effort that some nights I just fall into bed exhausted shortly after the boys have gone to bed. What with working 19 odd hours a week, running more and more ( this week I've done 14 miles, last week 21 ) and trying to run my house things are just full on.

Don't get me wrong.... I love every part of my life ( well, maybe not the housework and taxiing bits ) Its just that I need a time machine to be able to fit everything in !! I am sitting up here in my bedroom taking a break from the laundry. Goodness knows how I am going to get it all dry.

Tomorrow we are going out for lunch with my FIL. I hate to say this , but I just don't want to. Maybe I will feel better about it tomorrow. I was supposed to be going up to my cousin's house in the Lake District this weekend, but it turned out to be just impossible. It takes at least 5 hours to get up there in the car and things have conspired against us this time.

One good thing...... we have been invited to a Masked Ball in January !! How lovely !! It will be dead posh I think... all the ladies have to wear ballgowns, the men black tie and all must wear Venetian Masks. I love it !!! By then, with all this running, I might even fit into a ball gown !!! I will post a photo of my mask when I get it . Right I am going to go now. My apologies for the lack of comments on your blogs - I have been visiting, but not always commenting. Take care.

Ohhhh...I want to go to a formal masquerade!!! That sounds fabulous! Color me pea green with envy.

And kudos to you on your running! I'm very proud of you.

Wow! Good for you on all the running. I have been assured that one day I will come to love it, but right now I do not. Your Masked Ball sounds fabulous!! I have a Venetian Mask, but sadly no gown...

Missing you too!
Gosh, I'd love to go to a Masqued Ball too! But they'd never have such an idea in the South of France (too lazy)... Anyway : bravo for the running (I try to find the courage to start but I think that my courage went running without me ^^)
Til soon I hope!
