Another hot hot day but it’s going to be a lot cooler tomorrow so we wanted to make the most of it. We got the ferry to Staten Island today to see The Statue of Liberty and get a little bit of shopping done whilst there. We managed to walk a bit less today, butContinue reading “22/05/22 – Staten Island day trip”
It was absolutely roasting in New York today! We ended up walking about 15 miles around Manhattan and we’re now quite exhausted. But it was an excellent day in the heat, even if we did have to move from shade to shade. We saw a lot of Central Park and ate some great food. DayContinue reading “21/05/22 – A central park day”
We’re in New York! We’ve had a really great (and very very long) first day. We flew here this morning, then spent the whole day wandering round, taking in the sights and sounds before finally getting back into bed 22 hours after getting out of bed this morning. It’s time for a well earned sleep!
After over two years we’re finally going to New York! We’ve done the first leg of the journey, getting to Heathrow. Despite living in the same city, it took us 2.5 hours to get here! But we’ve made it, now it’s time to relax!
It’s been lovely and warm here in London recently, which has been a welcome change from the cold front we had for the first part of the year! However this evening it seems to have reached it’s climax, as whilst I write this I can hear the rain thrashing against the window, the rumble ofContinue reading “18/05/22 – The breaking storm”
Last run before my holiday! Decided to give myself (mostly my knees) a bit of a break so that’s me done for the next week and a bit. But it was a lovely run to finish off with! 5km in 28 and a half minutes. Pretty pleased with that, I’m definitely getting faster even ifContinue reading “17/05/22 – Morning run sunshine”
In a bid to get some sod’s law on our side, we bought new rain coats for our upcoming holiday! Now if it rains we’ll be happy to use our new coats, or hopefully because we bought new coats it won’t rain! This week is my last on my current project so it’s busy tryingContinue reading “16/05/22 – New holiday coat!”
I ran 14 miles today! I ran to my old house in Clapham where I lived about 8 years ago! It was a proper trip down memory lane and a real good run to boot. I’m super duper pleased as it’s the longest I’ve ever ran and it felt great. Woo hoo!
Finally, some warmth!! The sun has taken it’s sweet time to show up properly in London this year. It’s been so windy and chilly these last few months. Today I took great delight in suncreaming myself up and basking in the sunshine for a couple hours reading my book. It was absolutely lovely.
I’m soon to move onto another project at work and so I’m starting to finish up on so many bits of work, it’s very satisfying! But before all that we’ll be off on holiday which I’m SO VERY EXCITED for! It’s why we’re not really doing anything right now as we need to do aContinue reading “13/05/22 – Winding down”
