Failed miserably

When it came to keeping on keeping on. I’ve been at home today and plan to stay home tomorrow too; mind you I have no voice, am wracked with coughing every few minutes and the world is at an odd ...

Cough cough

I’m ill, my kick arse immune system is letting me down. Either that or I’d be a whole hell of a lot worse otherwise. One week left of school… I can do this. Right?

Survey...

FOODOLOGY What is your salad dressing of choice? When in doubt.... I rarely use dressings - I often eat salads but they’re packed with flavoursome foods like bacon, cheese, chillies, avocado, nu...

My birthday...

I can no longer claim to be in my early 40s, I hit 45 at 4am, Kenya time, today! My birthday has consisted of many facets and has been lovely. On Wednesday night Rich and I drove up to Birmingha...


Well, the title says it all really! It was the 10k race for which I’ve trained over the past few months and last weekend I was diagnosed with Achilles tendonitis after aborting a 10k run at 1.8ka...

My left thumb.

Nojomo

There doesn’t seem to be any sign of Nojomo on the diary so far and, to be fair, I’m not convinced I’d have time to do it. However, let’s see how it goes! Today would, of course, be considered No...

Not such good planning...

When I organised this evening (having tapas with a good friend) a few weeks ago, I said “it’s my long run day, but I’ll be fine because it’s school holidays and the girls and I will have a chill ...

Kittens!

My friend messages to say that one of the black kittens had died. She wasn’t sure why but the mother has never been maternal. However, it’s taken away from the difficulty of choosing, I guess. An...


WHERE: in the living room, stretching after a session of hill sprints. This is where I jog to a local footbridge and sprint to the top. I then walk down again repeat ad infinitum or until my legs...

Survey.

What part of pop culture do you wish would just go away? I really hate the current rape culture, I feel as though equality has gone backwards in terms of sexual equality. The idea that blokes wil...

Quick hello!!

Rich has gone oop north today to visit his mum. She has a hospital appointment today just to keep a check on the cancer. His taxi came at 6.10 so I was back from my run by 5.55am! So I have had a...

kitties.

We visited the kittens again today - they’re 3 weeks old now and still utterly gorgeous - even more so now that their eyes are open. Rich sat and cuddled one for over an hour! I took a few photo...
