It’s been an eventful November to say the least! Here is just an overview of what has been happening in order of importance.
- My son turned two!
- I tried out my new Adidas trainers and my new Shoepouch.
- Barack Obama became the first African-American President of the USA.
- In the UK, the Monetary Policy Committee dropped the Bank of England base rate by 1.50%, reducing the overall rate to 3.00%!
My son’s birthday was great and he suffered toy/family overload. He didn’t know what to play with first and didn’t want anyone touching his stuff. He was a bit naughty but not too bad. Overall, our son is very well behaved. However, now that he is “doooooo” we await the onset of the “terrible twos” which are renowned worldwide for taking your sweet innocent 1 year old and turning him/her in to a little monster. Bring it on.
My new trainers are great so far. I’ve done about 50 km in them already and they seem to be holding out and the cushioning is quite good. There is still stiffness in my left achilles after a hard or long run but that is something I’ll have to sort out.
I’m not going to go on about the election in the US or the change in the interest rates here in the UK. You can read about those yourself on almost any worthwile news site.
That’s it for today, short and sweet!
