I've had a nice easy day today. I was going to go for a bike ride but the tyres went down overnight. If I can't convince one of my friends to come to my rescue, I'll have to take the bike along to the bike shop. Luckily, it's just around the corner.
I made it to the gym for a walk on the treadmill. I walked at 6.4 km/hr at gradient 3.5 for 20 mins. With the 10 minute walk there and back, it was a 40 min session. I did a little housework and then headed to the airport.
In Melbourne, I went shopping for birthday presents for my niece (13) and one of my nephews (11). It's not as easy as it sounds. There are way too many choices for a gift for a 13 year old girl. I scoured the shops and then ended up buying what I'd thought of first - some scrapbooking materials. Laura loved them, so it was a complete success. I couldn't find what I wanted for Michael, so I gave him money. He was delighted, but money always seems like a too easy option.
One advantage of having trouble deciding what to buy - I did a lot more walking than I would have done otherwise.
Tomorrow, I think I'll go for a run around the creek in the morning. I was going to focus on getting points at the gym, but my team doesn't really need them and I feel like running. If I still have energy later, I might get myself along to the gym. I can probably check the class schedule online.
Tomorrow night I'll be listening to my sister sing in her cabaret showcase. I'm sure she'll be terrific and I'm looking forward to it immensely.
