Jetty to Jetty take 2!!

Yesterday was the 2008 Jetty to Jetty fun run. Last year I sprained my ankle attempting to run this. Not this year! This year I completed the 10K! YAY!!!!! 1hr & 14 minutes. Yay!!!! So I have finally completed a proper run. About time!

Now I just need to do more running so that I can improve my time!

Vanessa Amarosi Concert

We went to the Vanessa Amarosi Concert at Twin Towns on Saturday night. It was great!! And as a bonus, afterwards, we got to meet Vanessa and have a photo taken with her. (this time the photo was taken with our own camera, so we definitely have a copy of it, unlike the photo that was taken with Celine Dion, which we are still trying to get our hand on.....)

We stayed the night at the Twin Towns Resort, which was lovely - this was the view from our window

I tried to go for a run on the beach, but 10 minutes was enough for me. It sure is hard work to run on sand, even the wet sand!

its a bit chilly!

Winter has decided to arrive. We got some flannelette sheets from Catch of the Day and put them on the bed last night. Wow. So cozy and soft. I never had flannelette sheets before.

I am running in the Jetty to Jetty 10K next weekend (20th July). Considering I haven't been doing a great deal of running, it should be interesting! I have ben running about 8K about twice a week. I haven't yet run the whole 8K without any stopping. So I think there may be some walking happening during the JtoJ. But thats okay!

The vegie garden is still in tact. One bean plant has been squished, so I better sort out some kind of baracade soon!

Well the results are in, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with me, except of course for the fact that my fingers are still swollen..... I am a medical mystery.

strange things...

this sounds kind of bizzarre, but two fingers on my right hand have mysteriously swelled up. I went a week ago to the doctor, who told me I must have injured them somehow and not realized it., gave me anti inflamitory tablets and snet me away. So a week later and they are still swollen, so I go back. This doctor sends me for x-rays and blood tests. But still looks at me like I am a bit of a twit who must have fallen over or squished my hand somehow. I have to go back tonight for the results. Hopefully they can fix them because they are driving me a little bit crazy. And I seriously do not think I have done anything to cause an injury.

I finally have my Vegie Garden!!

Its only taken me three years, but I finally have my vegie garden. I had the dirt delivered this past weekend. So I spent some time shovellling and wheel-barrowing it around to the back yard. Of course the wheel-barrow had a flat tyre, but this was easily fixed with the bike pump. yay!

So in my experimental vegie garden, I now have Sweetcorn, beans, peas, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, chilli's, capsicums and silverbeet. I haven't taken any photos yet. Hopefully Jeya doesn't dig it all up. Every night when I get home from work I have been going out there with a torch to make sure nothing has been squished or thrown around. so far so good.
