I seem to have acquired more than one blog. I have three more than one, two more than the two I had until this week and I’ll tell you why with a story that is one of my favourites from my running.
I was at the gym, a few weeks before my first 10k, running at a steady pace and finding it utterly exhausting. I hadn’t managed to run the full distance yet so it felt pretty important to get in as much training as possible.
I did my best but gave up after about five minutes. Instead I did some running at an incline and put the treadmill to the random setting. I increased the speed to as fast as I could go for as long as I could run and then walked for a bit and generally chop and changed my routine for about 40 minutes. It was brilliant fun.
My housemate and I then went to Tampopo for dinner and I pretty much zonked out on top of my red Thai curry with prawns. I was ill for the next three days with a throat infection so my body was probably right to want me to rest.
I don’t feel proud for tricking it, I’m just glad I put my last bit of energy to good use.
So how is that like having four blogs? Well, I don’t seem to have much energy these days and sometimes I want to post random things that are utterly meaningless but fun. Little posts with few words aren’t a problem on a blog that is filled with meaningless posts.
I also really like the picture on the Miscellaneous blog.
We’ll see how it goes.
The blogs I’ve been talking about:
And a picture of autumn because it caught my eye as I was browsing Flickr.
The Ephemeral Baby blog has been a little quiet recently but there is a new post up with plenty of pictures.
Rolling, tummy time and almost sitting.
There were big moments for nearly everyone last week.
We began our week with baby’s big moment.
Then we had dad’s big moment and some pictures of little M.

A new post has been added on Ephemeral Baby: Our weekend adventures – shopping as a non-yummy mummy.
Dear gentle readers,
Since having Mersina, seven weeks and two days ago, I have been a little biased in my posting and baby posts have increased from once a week to nearly every day.
In respect of this increased frequency and new focus I have decided to start a new blog exclusively about the baby and my adventures as a single parent.
You can visit at http://baby.ephemeraldigest.co.uk and subscribe for email updates or by RSS feed to keep up to date with what little M and I get up to through the year.
Changes to this site:
I am initially redirecting all posts to the new address and then will slowly be deleting from this blog as appropriate. This means that when you click on the menu Baby B you are now redirected to Ephemeral Baby. I am aiming to redirect all links to the new blog as soon as possible. I hope there is no disruption.
Hope to see you all there.
