Mourning Fat Bob and Curious George

Writing about Goldfish–sitting from 1129 - Ali's () blog

Reading Alison's entry about goldfish has prompted me to come to terms with my recent losses.

Our first goldfish, Fat Bob died a few weeks ago whilst we were away on holiday. Curious George it seems, at all the food and starved the previously quite rotund Bob to death :(

Now, just a few weeks later, we have managed to kill George as well. I don't know if it was guilt, or just lonlieness that finally took George to meet his maker…either way, we are now fishless :(

To think we are meant to be looking after one of my parents' dogs next month!

My first run

So, did my first run along the route from home to work on Friday after work. I didn't actually run from work to home, but did do at least the equivalent distance.

I did 3/4 of the way to work and back home again, totaling 3.5 miles in 28 minutes (8 minutes/mile pace). That wasn't too bad for my first go.

I have to say though…running is really boring! Give me footy any day!
