I Raced a Boat!!

I really did, just this morning on my run and I won. The driver (no idea what you call a boat person) was giving it his all and the crows were cheering for me encouraging me to go faster. At least that is what was happening in my head! In reality I don’t think the boat driver even saw me and the crows, well lets be honest, they can’t cheer can they. But I did run this morning woop woop!

Mr C booked us a fab place for our celebratory dinner last night called Mission it was so yummy. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings which was optional (as if you would have dinner without wine) and we were not disappointed. It was the best meal out we’d had in a long time, it was the type of food that made you do that little appreciation dance in your chair (you know the one right, it’s not just me). There was five courses and we were full once we had finished though this did not stop us from throwing in a cheese board.

In addition to the amazing food and lovely atmosphere our server Rachelle was very knowledgeable about wine which makes sense as she is a Sommelier! I also liked that she didn’t laugh at me when I asked if the crackers made out of potato starch were made by boiling potatoes and using the potato water….so plausible.

In other news, Mr C had to pull poo out of Eric’s bum this morning apparently this was due to my hair getting everywhere. Just to clarify Eric is our dog!

Wine Head!

So today was a  massive fail for my running Mr C got offered a job yesterday which was a great excuse to go to the pub and celebrate, which we did. Unfortunetly it turned out to be one of those evenings were we forgot we are responsible adults and got totally carried away in the wine shop when we found a 1L bottle of wine. I knew we were on the way to drunksville by the fact that we didn’t realise or remember it was a 1L bottle until we got home and placed it next to the normal size bottle of wine we bought (just in case the 1L wasn’t enough for a Tuesday night)!! Making Mr C buy me the biggest bouquet of flowers en route home was also a good indicator of how we would be feeling this morning.

As one would expect we both woke up this morning with wine heads totally grateful that neither of us had jobs to go to! Mr C promised himself that he would do a make up run this afternoon but he’s currently sat opposite me looking at doggy rain coats (Eric isn’t a fan of getting his ears wet).

The day has been pretty unproductive though I did manage to accomplish the inspirational tasks laid out in my diary (day planner if you’re not British). Buy a Yellow Umbrella it said and being the diligent task orientated person I am (evidently) I ordered one woop woop. I must admit I was also inspired by the colourful lady yesterday and wanted to also be a splash of colour in the grey horizon of Vancouver.

Anyways, back on the running tomorrow, though we are going for a celebratory dinner tonight…………
