Aren't Friday's the Best?
Today is my 5 momthiversary at work and I thought I’d butter up the boss with a cupcake before I asked him how I was doing. I should have brought a lot more cupcakes in because he’s going to survey the crowd and see what the people I work with are thinking. They keep giving me work – and holy cow there is a lot of it today – so I’m taking that as a good sign. Remember the good old days when your probation was only 3 months long?
Yesterday was run day – it is so hard to only run every second day – and I added in a trip behind Parliament Hill to my route so that I could run up the stairs at the locks. What an interesting adventure. There were two young ladies behind Parliament Hill sunbathing in their bikinis. Are they government workers? I didn’t see any bikes to show that they came any distance. There is no beach behind the hill. Seriously, wouldn’t you be worried that a co-worker would see you? Remember how I mentioned all the construction worker bees….well, they got quite a show yesterday.After I passed the bikini babes and the worker bees, I fortified myself with some delicious cold water from the water fountain at the bottom of the hill – thanks PWC – and then approached the stairs with the same mind-set that I imagine Floyd Mayweather approached his boxing match with Pacquiao….I will not be defeated! I rock! I will not have a cardiac arrest and embarrass myself….you get the idea. All I have to say is thank goodness there is a big space between each staircase which gives your legs a bit of a break. I need to get the Rocky music on my MP3 for the stairs. Steph – can you work on that?
It is now the season that my face gets to be an especially lovely shade of red for at least an hour after I run. I had to take off my fuchsia jacket because we clashed – lol. Walking back to the office I passed a young gentleman who had on black leggings and beige short shorts over top. WHY??? Such a bad look on girls let alone a guy.Today is just a walk with a friend at lunch and since it is going to be super-HOT I can’t wait to see what fashion fails we’ll see. I’ll bring my camera.
Hope you all have fun plans for the weekend. I will be painting - outside if it’s nice and inside if it rains. Fun, fun, fun.
HAPPY EARLY MOTHERS DAY TO ALL MY FAVOURITE MOM’S
