Merrrrrry Christmas!

It’s here!! Merry Christmas Joyeux Noël Buon Natale Frohes Fest Feliz Navidad God Jul Glædelig Jul Kala Christoyenna Wesolych Swiat

I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.

Charles Dickens

Have a very merry, blessed, joyful, memorable and peaceful Christmas! I’m off to unwind, drink, eat, go for a walk after the big Christmas dinner fall asleep in front of the fire.

What are YOU gonna get up to?


Twas the day of baking gifts

Today is my last day off before Christmas Day! Not bad, considering I work in retail and it’s utter mayhem in every shop, no matter how big or small, right now. A day off work doesn’t equate to a day of rest for though – oh no, for today is the day I’m baking dozen of cookies which shall be passed on as gifts to co-workers and ‘grown-up’ family members.

On the menu : Sugar Cookie Recipe-made-into-Hazelnut-Thumbprint-covered-in-Chocolate Cookies 😀 and Austrian Vanilla Crescents

Before I can get to that, I have an appointment with my Chiropractor, which hasn’t only been part of a series of appointments ever since I put my back out for the 2nd time in a matter of 5 months earlier this year, but is also coming quite handy-dandy today as I felt that familiar jolt of pain in my lower back two days ago… meh. :/

So, I haven’t been to the gym since Monday, though I’m yearning for the treadmill, as strange as that may sound to some. Anyway, I’m hoping to be able to hop back on the ‘moving pavement’ (<– huh!?) by wednesday next week, which would also coincide with my gym reopening after the festivities. Happy days!

Wish me luck..

Starting out

Sooooo…, here I am, helloo and welcome to RunBakeFun! I’ve been a blog reader-follower-but-not-so-much-commenter for a while, and am glad to have finally made a move to get blogging myself.


I started this blog to share part of my journey through running and fitness, baking healthy-fied (and sometimes straightforward and not so healthy) goodies, cooking and, errr, cosmetics and god-knows-what-else with you. All of the above are close to my heart..yes – even cosmetics, don’t judge! 😉 ..and I’ll see where we go from here.

Happy reading!
