Juneathon Day 14 - Exhausted & Pathetic

Today's musical reference to June is from 1956.   Julie London is one of my Dad's favourite female singers from that era!

Memphis In June -   Julie London : 1956 

Last night's Theatre trip was brilliant - an Agatha Christie whodunnit, set on a boat on the Nile. Luckily Mr B & Danni kept their thoughts to theirselves, I managed to work out the culprit about 20 minutes from the end!  

I have been very tired today, it has been a real struggle to keep awake.  I fell asleep on the bus home and after eating a sandwich headed out with the dog.   Shaun came with me but he was in quite a bit of pain with his knee so started back after a mile.  Archie decided he wanted to go back too so today's dog walk was only 2 miles.

We got home and had a cup of tea and I waited to hear whether  Sue was joining me for a run tonight.  She rang at about 5 to say she had broken down so wasn't going to be back until late.  I then promptly fell asleep for 15 minutes!   I finally summoned the energy for a run but could only manage another 2 miles.  I feel a bit fed up because today was supposed a 4 to 6 mile day.

Tomorrow we have some lovely weather forecast - thunder & lightning!  I shall look forward to running in that!
