inspired by jane logging yet another half marathon last weekend, i attempted to go for a long run this morning. thwarted before i even left the house. our street was cordoned off, with armed police stood outside the front door. i don't need to be told twice. after a few hours they'd gone. still have no idea what/who they were looking for. in the mean time i cleaned the house and baked some gingerbread men.
i bet nigella doesn't have to put up with such distractions.
