A good weekend

Have been quite busy last few days, went on my first proper run on friday evening, found a new route not so hilly, did about 3 1/2 miles so i was quite pleased with that my muscles the next day were killing me but at least it is a start, only got three weeks until our holiday in istanbul got to get a little more weight off for that. The place we ran was called Goss Moor, the old a30 moterway is here so the runnung path is really good and flat lots of wildlife and butterflies and birds but also cow that seem to roam free very similar to the ponies on dartmoor quite strange seening them not fensed off.
Had friends around for dinner last night the bubbles flowed i did a really nice three coursr meal for six of us started off with antipasti and dips and olives, followed by chicken in a paprika sauce ,for pud it was cornish strawberries, blueberries soaked in orange liqour and clotted cream , had wolf blass shiraz, fetzer pino grigio all very nice, we are a mixed bunch of age groups but we all get on really well they are lovely company, they left around by the time we cleared up the womens marathon came on so we stupidly stayed up until watching that hay ho we did not have to get up early.
Today i went to see Mama Mia at the cinema , really enjoyed it, a good "chick flick" as they say we were singing the abba songs on the way home in the car

Well i will be without a computer yet again next week i think as it is still not working properly so will post at some point.

Sounds like a wonderful dinner with friends. I'm looking forward to seeing Momma Mia. I love the Abba songs.
