Wakey Wakey

After a night of tossing, turning and balancing cats on my back (the little blighters) I decided to give in at 5.30 and get up to face the day. The weather though very pretty is a complete pain in the a** to run in. Last night we settled for a steady 9 miles into Ilkley and back as a speed session was clearly off the menu.
Its my big day today, an assessment centre for a big promotion. 5 hours of tests, interviews and presentations including a financial case study that I'm dreading (I don't do sums very well). Sleeping has been a rare treat so an easy 5 around the village this morning has helped settle the nerves, if a little bit slow in the snow. All fingers, toes and any other spare digits crossed.

Thanks MH, just about recovering after gruelling day. It was good news about the outcome last night but not am freaking out about having a new job.. never happy...

Toughie with the weather today, M was hoping to get to HPTT too. Looks like bounding in the snowy grass for us. Keep warm!
