This was a year ago. It must have been taken on one of my really long running routes. As it was the last week of term, I would be trying to cram in as many long runs as possible before the 6 week school holidays started. If only I had crammed in a few super long runs before the pandemic kicked in during March this year. Actually thinking about it, I wish I had crammed in a few other things as well those long 4 months ago

  • Real ice cream
  • Slush puppies
  • Hill walking
  • Climbing
  • Trips to the beach
  • Trips to Switzerland
  • Trips to see my football team play – on seconds thoughts, who wants to see them get beat again….
  • Trips to Castles and Roman sites
  • Rock concerts
  • Visits to my sisters and brother
  • Trips to see some special friends
  • A few mountain biking sessions
  • A trip to the running shoe shop
  • A trip to a coffee and cake shop
  • A trip to the hot donut shop
  • A trip to the paper shop to stock up on paper, pens, PENCILS, paint, crayons and other school stationary cupboard requirements
  • Trip to the garage, my car has been broken since March now
  • A trip to the chip shop
  • Clothes shopping for the next year of Hawklad’s growth
  • Bathroom paper (toilet roll), face mask and soap shopping
  • A trip to the toy shop for Christmas gifts
  • Garden furniture shopping – the Yorkshire winters are not kind on outside chairs
  • Second hand book store

Thinking about books, the one place I am so glad I never crammed in was a trip to the Library. My books would now be 4 months overdue – that would be some hefty fine.

  1. Reading your list has shown me how much has changed and what we took for granted . Well not for granted but what simple things we cannot easily do at the moment. I am so sorry you are not able to get a run in . I know that was a big stress relief. And the library so true. Hugs

  2. Laughing… ๐Ÿ˜€ You got me with bathroom paper (toilet rolls) again. ๐Ÿ˜€ Lost it… could barely read the rest of your post. Good thing about not having made a stop at the library. Made it to the end! ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. There is much I would have crammed in as well, had I known. It makes me promise myself to NEVER take all the little blessings for granted ever again. Our library closed before I was able to stock up. I was positively jonesing for new material to read after reading again all the books in my small collection. Fortunately I was able to keep up easily with all the wonderful blog posts you and others posted, that saved me time and time again!

    Just a side note, our library is not charging any late fees whatsoever!

  4. Well… we all took little things for granted …

    I actually learned that through cancer before this hit…

    I had no idea how important you breast muscle is – until I could not even pick up something as light as my phone or open a door. I even needed help using the bathroom. โ˜น๏ธ

    You donโ€™t realize until you lose it.

    So just try to appreciate what you have currently…

    What is in the past you can never change or return – donโ€™t look too far back, too often … you will miss what could be appreciated now!

    There was a time I was so busy missing the past, that it made me miss the present… so careful on that. Itโ€™s a slippery slope lol โœŒ๏ธ

    You can see where you took things for granted … so that is good that you see that. Make sure that in the present, you are present ๐ŸŽ

    If you are always looking backwards you canโ€™t see whatโ€™s in front of you ๐Ÿ˜˜โœŒ๏ธ
