Alas I have fallen off the Janathon wagon! I set out this morning with the intention of running Aylesbury parkrun which would have been my 97th different event but after driving 107 miles I got there to find the event was understandably called off due to sheet ice on the course. Because I had forgotten my Suunto I decided against doing a freedom run (no way of verifying it) and headed off to checkpoint one of the Country to Capital Ultra to surprise and offer encouragement to abradypus on her 44 mile journey. I then carried on to checkpoint two (which had been my original intention) where she seemed to be remarkably spritely and making good time so I bade her a fond farewell and headed home.
It still being daylight and me still having my running clobber on I headed off down the road but had barely gone 100 yards when I decided that my knee was less than comfortable and that I would give it a miss for today so there you have it, I have failed! Unless I can pull in two runs tomorrow (very doubtful!) I have failed Jantastic too for I had opted to do seven runs a week for January.
Anyway, to cheer myself up a bit, who is this little cutie in her younger days? She has already appeared once in Guess the Sheep.
Is it a) Rolanda Hooch or b) Victoire Weasley or c) Ginny Weasley?
And this classy lady who appeared on 10th Janathon with no wool on
is a) Minerva McGonagall (born 18th March 2010) and she has had twin boys the first year she was here, Rolanda Hooch and a boy lamb who sadly died last year and this year she had a girl and a boy lamb that I sold to my delightfully dippy friend in Yorkshire and she has named them Double and Trouble! She’s a wonderful mother but she had a bit of trouble with her udder this year, hopefully a year off will have done the trick ’cause you can tell she loves looking after her lambs!
Three of you guessed correctly and they were rundmach, loupie and abradypus – well done!
