When you’re away in a different city and running, do you buy yourself souvenirs?
Here are some of the new baubles we have collected this year:
The first is my Harrods bauble, which I picked up when I was in London for The Color Run UK back in July. We always buy a Harrods bauble each year, and have done that since 2007, so we now have seven!
Next, is the silver ornament we bought at the Guinness factory in Dublin. We picked this up when we visited for the inaugural RnR Dublin half marathon in August.
Bottom right is a wooden heart with a reindeer’s head, which I got when in Centre Parcs for the Hen Do. Not a race, but I did go for a run that day.
Finally, the sparkly red reindeer is from The Tree Shop at Cairndow. We stopped off there after the inaugural CowalFest trail run, which was in October.
@TheWelshWookie and I have also given in to temptation, and bought some festive goodies.
We now have stollen, as well as these:
I’m looking forward to having a glass of mulled cider, and to tasting these cinnamon Pringles! They also had Mint Choc Pringles, but I though those were a step too far!
Anyone else tried those?
Meanwhile this weekend, I seem to have transformed completely into the embarrassing old auntie….
Well, I’ve done it. I’ve taken the social media world by storm!
I’ve set up a TartanJogger page on Facebook!
So, the way I see it, you have two choices. Number One: ignore this post. Number Two: put your real life on hold and head over to FB to like meeeeee!
Since starting my blog, I’ve had FB linked to my personal facebook page. That meant that my friends and family were treated to had no choice but to read my blog posts. Ha! Now, my timeline is not dotted with running related posts quite as much!
I’ve been on twitter, G+, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Path and BlogLovin’ for some time. I reckon I’ve now completed the set.
Where do you link your blog posts to? Would you say you’re social media savvy, or a SM novice? Does it matter?
It’s advent! This year, @TheWelshWookie and I have advent calendars. Every year, we have an advent train, that we fill with chocolates every year.
However, this year we succumbed to temptation, and bought advent calendars, too.
TheWookie has a Lindt chocolate one, and he has kicked off advent with a dark chilli cherry mousse chocolate. Here’s his calendar:
I have a zero-calorie calendar, a Yankee Candle one:
My first tea light is a Christmas cookie one, it smells delicious!
It’s lovely, that the first Sunday in advent has actually coincided with 1st December!
Do you have any advent traditions?
Today, on St Andrew’s Day, instead of spending time reading a blog, please say a prayer for the victims, survivors, rescue services, volunteers and families of those involved in the terrible incident last night. The people of Glasgow have shown their resilience and community spirit once again.
