Back in the box

A busy day today. I went for my short run first thing this morning, then spent a few hours doing some day job work for a client. After that, the rest of the afternoon was taken up with putting away all the Christmas decorations. The house always looks a bit bare when they’re down, but it is giving me some impetus to get a few more pictures up on the walls soon.

Geth and I have sorted out our diaries for 2020 this evening (they’re ridiculously full already, which always seems to happen at the start of the year), and I’m about to have a go on RingFit Adventure, which is an exercise game for the Nintendo Switch.

A slightly quieter day tomorrow I hope!

Retro media players
Not an OOTD: it’s not out the box yet, but my new turntable (a Christmas present from Geth) fits its allotted space very well! Some of the albums are newly bought in the last year, while others are from Mum and Dad’s collection, which I divvied up with Malcolm on Christmas morning. It’s also a cassette player, but I won’t be getting rid of my 1993 Saisho machine (top of picture) – I’m too attached to it.

Today’s earworm playlist:

Koichi Sugiyama – ‘Unflinchable Courage’
Starship – ‘We Built This City’
Bill Conti – ‘Gonna Fly Now’

Letting the legs recover

It’s been a good day. I got up early to go to one of the record shops in town for Record Store Day – I had to queue for an hour to get in, but I got my Duran Duran vinyl so all is good!

I then got on the treadmill and did my last properly long run of the marathon training programme (I do have a ‘long run’ to do next weekend but at only an hour and twenty minutes it’s going to feel very short compared to what I’ve been doing recently). Fifteen days to go till race day!

Now for an evening of writing, music, and writing about music. My kind of evening.

(Another Duran Duran-heavy brain day. I have been listening to them a lot this week, which is probably why!)
