From the ages of 5 to 9, I never worried about a 9 till 5. But when we turned to late teens and twenties we’re told to trade dreams for rent please.

13.3 miles today. Quickest 13.1 for quite some time. Felt comfortable for most of it. Headed out at 7, I went round More Hall reservoir on a very sunny Sunday. It was really peaceful at that time of day.

Last week I did a 5k run every day for 5 days. Kind of a challenge thing. I wanted to get quicker. Which I managed – shaving a whole 35 seconds of my (rather slow) recentish PB. I also realised the importance of rest days.

I can reduce my teaspoon usage during the day by 75% simply by designating one spoon the Dry Spoon and another the Wet Spoon, thus requiring only two teaspoons ALL DAY. This has made me really happy.

I think that says a lot about my current state of mind.

Currently working on a site with 85 plugins. 26 of them need updates. The task I’ve been set is just to add a new custom field to a page template. When is it my responsibility to say ‘no more work until this mess is sorted out’?
