Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope you’ve had a wonderful year and enjoy the festive period. Richard and I have had a lovely year and have enjoyed a mix of travelling, spending time with family and friends and getting married (we were already legally married but on our 11th anniversary we converted…

Christmas Day Trip to Paris

We enjoyed a wonderfully festive (and nippy) day in Paris which got us both into the Christmas spirit. It was actually rather cold to hold the camera to take shots and it was very busy so I didn’t take as many photographs as I thought I would (mind you this is the best of 616…

Decorating our home for Christmas

Lungs full of sea air

It felt so much better to be running in the warm with clean sea air.  I hear we’ve missed snow and wintry conditions whilst being in Spain so I’m grateful we came away when we did.   This was my first opportunity to run so I got out of bed, put on my kit and…
