Shrove Tuesday / St David’s Day

Shrove Tuesday and St David’s Day fall on the same day this year, apparently for the first time since 1960. Geth was hopeful that this would mean we could have both pancakes and Welsh cakes today, but I think that would be a little excessive. We’ve got some nice daffodils on the mantelpiece that will do for the latter celebration.


No pancake pictures as we’ll be eating late!

Suddenly springlike

Back out on the roads this morning…

…because the weather couldn’t have been more different from yesterday! Lovely and mild out there today – I went for a walk in the afternoon too.

Work has been quiet today so I managed to get most of my admin and writing jobs done in the afternoon. I also made a ton of Shrove Tuesday pancakes this evening! Hoping that they’ll fuel tomorrow morning’s run nicely.

Blue sky in Newcastle
Nice sunny day for walking in the park!

Today’s earworm playlist:

FM-84 and Ollie Wride – ‘Running In The Night’
Double – ‘The Captain Of Her Heart’
Paula Abdul – ‘Straight Up’
The Lancashire Hotpots – ‘This Lancashire Town’

Anticipating some good sleep tonight!

I went for a long sleep-inducing run in the sort-of storm today…

…and since then have just been chilling out on the sofa and eating a lot. 1000+ calorie burn for the win 😀 Geth tried out a new recipe for banana pancakes after I got home, which I think is going to be our new go-to for late post-run breakfast on Sundays.

No day job work scheduled tomorrow so I’m hoping for a productive day getting some admin done!

Exhibition Park
So much for Storm Ciara! It was really quite sunny at points on my run today.

Today’s earworm playlist:

Sidney Samson and Wizard Sleeve – ‘Riverside (Let’s Go!)’
Counting Crows – ‘Mr Jones’
Reef – ‘Place Your Hands’
The Midnight – ‘Memories’

Ready to eat all the pancakes!

A bit of a day off today, which has been nice. I did my Tuesday morning recovery run, went to the hairdresser, and then did a few things in town.

Pancakes and boardgaming with Geth tonight, and then back to the editing tomorrow!
