Last year I turned 40 *gulp* At the start of the year I made a list of things I wanted to do before my birthday. Some of those things I managed to do and some I didn’t but having the list really made me focus on what I did want from life and made me actually try harder to go out and get it. So today I thought I would make myself another list of things that I want to do before I die because I am really lacking focus at the moment and am not really sure where I am going with my life. I really don’t like the term bucket list… I’ve no idea why but there is just something about it. Read more
Every new year I love to sit and contemplate the year that just ended and think all about the good things that have happened. Sometimes what seemed to be a bad year can look decidedly better this way. Today I can honestly sit and say that 2017 was a wonderful year for our family. I turned 40 *yikes*, we had our first proper relaxing family holiday, my oldest turned 21 and I ran a half marathon! The kids are all really growing up now, the stress and strains of babies & toddlers have left us and we are really enjoying the little extra freedom this brings us all. I can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring us but for now here is a little look back at 2017… Read more
So the day of the Ikano Bank Robin Hood Half Marathon has come and gone and you’ve probably seen my photos all over my social media saying that I did it so I thought I’d put a post together about how I managed to survive! Since drunkenly signing up in January I have put in so much training, the longest run I did before the big day was 10.5 miles so I was terrified when it actually came to the day… Read more
You might remember back in January when I had a few too many glasses of Prosecco and signed myself and my other half up to do a half marathon, I couldn’t even run a kilometre back then and quickly regretted the decision! Not one to back out of a drunken mistake I actually decided that hell yes I can do that and started on a training programme to get me across the finish line! 13.1 miles is a BLOODY LONG WAY and the time is almost here for me to actually do it! Our summer has revolved around training, training and more training and to date I have clocked up over 650KM. I’m tired, really tired but I know I can do this! Read more
I’m really excited to announce that my #AuctionforGrayson is now live. You can head over to my Facebook page to view all the items that you can bid on! The auction will be open until Sunday 9th April until 9pm so make sure you get all of your bids in by then.
Those of you that have followed my blog for a long time will know that five years ago I organised Grayson’s Trike Auction and raised over £2,000 so my lovely friend Kara’s son could have a brand new trike which helped him tremendously. I collected over 100 items and auctioned them off over on Facebook. It was wonderful to see everyone come together to help Grayson. Read more
