14/08/15 – Never do things by half

Here we are in a lovely B&B in Bath ready for Maria and Dan’s wedding day tomorrow! Nic and I hopped on the train after work and got here quite late, but their welcome was still so warm and the room is gorgeous. Time for a lavish weekend in Bath!

13/08/15 – Hanging out at Aerial Silks

I had SUCH a good and tiring evening tonight! Corinne and I tried aerial silks for the first time and it was fantastic! Though I’m nervous for my achy arms tomorrow, we’ll definitely be going back soon. One of the main things I want to achieve this year is to get fit and strong –Continue reading “13/08/15 – Hanging out at Aerial Silks”

12/08/15 – Monkeying around lidos

We’re getting the hang of this after work swimming malarkey! I managed to swim a whole 1km after work today – the furthest I’ve ever swam in one go (I think).. Pretty chuffed! And continuing on a roll of PBs I also managed to do a full set of monkey bars AND come back onContinue reading “12/08/15 – Monkeying around lidos”

11/08/15 – Running from West to East

Today after work Corinne and I ran from West London to East London! It was a very soggy run but we did it, and it was really nice to have the cool weather for a change Corinnes longest ever run at 11.65km! And I carried on a bit to Victoria for a total of 13.25km.Continue reading “11/08/15 – Running from West to East”

09/08/15 – Quick hello to the sea

I headed back to London today after a lovely weekend in North Wales with my sister and Nana. It was great being back in Wales, the rolling green hills and mountains were a welcome change from south east London. Before I got dropped off to the station we even managed a quick trip to theContinue reading “09/08/15 – Quick hello to the sea”

08/08/15 – Green grass of home

It’s been a glorious day here in North Wales! The sun has been shining, and we’ve done our fair amount of froliking in it at our ‘secret spot’ (an abandoned chapel my dad and grandad found when we were kids). Then it was off to the circus to be amazed by some incredible acrobatics andContinue reading “08/08/15 – Green grass of home”

07/08/15 – The country of my people

Or as some people know it, Wales… I’m off to Rhyl (North Wales) today to stay at my Nana’s. My sister, Mel, is already there so I’m super excited to see them both – it’s going to be a great weekend! And if train journeys call for one thing, it’s travel gin!

06/08/15 – Intermittent triathalon

I cycled, ran AND swam today! One of mine and Nic’s 2016 goals is to complete a triathalon together, so this year we’ve started to include more swimming into our lives and we’re loving it, especially on glorious evenings like this one! …and we might have had chips afterwards which made today even more excellent.
