Today's June fact :
According to www.datesinhistory.com today in 1847 the first doughnut was created. Not sure how they would have looked but they certainly wouldn't have looked like this
Last night I went to bed with a swollen ankle thanks to a mozzy bite from the dog walk through the woods the other day. This morning I got up and the swelling had gone down but the bites were pretty itchy so I took a one a day anti histamine tablet and found some out of date hydrocortisone cream! I didn't apply the cream because I got completely sidetracked and left for work.
During the day the itching got worse and the more time I spent on my feet the more swollen my ankle got, by the time I got home my ankle was so swollen there was no difference between my foot and my calf. I text hubby to ask him to bring home anti histamine cream and/or hydrocortisone and went off to walk the dog. By the time I got back from the dog walk both ankles looked broken with great big swellings on each. I couldn't decide whether it was OK to run on them but hey it's Juneathon and no excuse will be good enough to not run!
I headed for the cycle path route having told Mr B I was only going for 2 miles. Going was ok but coming back was horrendous - the wind was really strong running into it for a whole mile. If it hadn't been so windy I think tonight would have been a faster time!
