Wow can you believe October is here already! We have a really busy month in October as it is my other half’s birthday as well as Liam’s 21st and Boo’s 11th! I can never start thinking bout Christmas until the birthdays are over with. I’ve had a lovely week this week… meals out with my oldest, theatre visits with the girls. September was an such amazing month with all my 40th celebrations and I’m looking forward to what the rest of the year has in store for us 🙂
This week has all been about my half marathon which I’m happy to say I finished yesterday! It was really hard and I am so pleased it is over. I don’t think I’ll be rushing to do another half marathon, I think I’ll stick to doing some 10k’s in future. I thought my legs would be suffering today but it’s my shoulders that hurt more than anything. We raised over £500 for Macmillan Cancer Support so it was really worth every single minute of pain 🙂 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’ve been blogging here now for seven years and those seven years have brought us some incredible opportunities but the one I am going to tell you about today is probably one of our favourites! Bugs was asked by the lovely people at Petplan to design his very own dream pet. Well he spent ages thinking about this, not satisfied with an ordinary pet he finally designed his very own pet monster called Patch… Read more
This last week has been absolutely lovely, lots of really special moments as my 40th birthday celebrations continued. I am so excited by the future at the moment as I have so many lovely things planned but I also have so much work and organising to do so much not get too carried away enjoying myself 😉 I am starting to learn Italian tomorrow evening and next Sunday is my first half marathon! Please keep your fingers crossed for me and if you would like to sponsor me then you can do so here! All bloggers and small businesses that sponsor me get a thank you link in my sidebar until the end of the year 🙂
I’m running a bit late with my #project365 this weekend because James whisked me away for the weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday. My wonderful friend had the kids for three nights and we got to have an amazing weekend in the Lake District. Today it is back to earth with a bump! So much to do and so little time!
A yummy snack called Knoppers have just launched in the UK and today we are going to tell you all about them!
