Orienteering! The whole family came along and Rob and Euan did the Orange while I ran the short blue. Missed my O shoes in the very uneven open heath sections, which are somehow much harder on "trail" shoes - I think it's the high heel base compared to the thin flat O shoes. Was completely confused for almost 3 minutes at the start, drifted on the compass before locking in to where I actually was, and then a couple of small mistakes later on. Back was sore on the uphills - I carried Euan a lot more than usual last week while doing no exercise, and it showed.
Happy to break 10 minute per km, enjoyed every second. Hoping to move onwards and up from here.
Afterwards Euan got to play with Jonathan and Charlotte which was an absolute delight! Playing with big kids who know how to play is good for both toddler and Mum and Dad :). Really great to see people at last.
Another day with Euan at home after he woke being very grumpy, which is unlike him. Doc found swollen lymph nodes but not much else. Hopefully he'll be feeling a bit better tomorrow, he's clearly tired today.
I need to make friends. I'm still waiting for my grants to transfer, and was supposed to start the new job November 1st. But it's not moving. Feeling pretty down and definitely lacking in socialization but at that point where I'm too tired and fed up to be proactive about it. Meh. I think a job I actually go to will help.
