I completely love it when the nights draw in. The start of Strictly Come Dancing and the shorter days signify the countdown to Christmas and I am definitely one of those people who genuinely wish it could be Christmas every day.
The darker nights also give me the confidence to go running. This activity has to be done in the dark because………
I look like this
And also I love being nosy and running past people’s houses.
This also comes at a time when we are thinking about having another baby. Both my previous pregnancies ruined me as I suffered with hypremesis gravidarum, umbilical hernia and also PND. I must be mad wanting to do it all again but I genuinely feel like I’m not done. Anyway I have set myself a goal. I am not even going to start to ‘try’ until I am fitter than I have ever been and I have managed to wean myself off my antidepressants.
So far so good. I even went running today after quite a heavy dinner party last night. I am slightly worried I have broken my dog though.
I also wanted to list some podcasts that I use to keep me going.
- Casefile. Really good podcast which documents murder cases.
- The Last Podcast On The Left. This podcast makes me laugh a lot. Quite dark subject matter but the 3 guys who host it are hilarious.
- My Favourite Murder. This is also hilarious . Making murder funny should be so wrong but these 2 women manage to handle really dark subject matter in an often light hearted way and they also have a massive cult following.
- Woman’s Hour. Radio 4
- All The Books. Really good book based podcast.
