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…

Morning has broken

I have been experimenting with timelapse photography and have managed to capture a sunrise from our bedroom window that I am very pleased with. My camera does not have a timelapse function, this is a combination of using the anti-shake option and an external shutter release.  It sounds complicated but once you get used to…

Excuse me deer, where are you running?

Todays plan was a short 15 minute run ahead of the RunKeeper Global 5K this weekend. Although last weekends run was really painful, I didn’t really notice a great deal when not running, except for some minor arch pain on Monday morning. I have been stretching this week and following the advice online for PF….

The Runners Reward

I should have guessed today’s run would be tough and I was right. Following all the work we did to get the house straight with the renovations, I felt more than a little tired and sore.  Moving new furniture up two stories, dismantling and removing old furniture then rearranging everything can be a tiring process!…

Changing Rooms

We planned to make use of a dead space in our bedroom when we moved in but saved up to do it right.  Today after lots of ups and downs it’s all done and I can safely say we are both very proud of the finished result. Minus the problems we had with the company who…

Reminiscing…

Found this whilst cleaning up my Vimeo account… So many memories…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

I managed to find some time to put up the decorations 😄 Lots of new decorations this year and it all went up quite quickly and orderly. Very happy with the finished look. Happy holidays!

Tough hilly run

The challenge with my parents living at the bottom of a valley is finding a kind route to run out of it. I decided to run another Moov training session to improve my cadence and after a stalled start I managed to find my rhythm and get on track with the training (unlike the weekend…

Katnip Kartel

Two years ago on my birthday I attended a LOLCat exhibition in London with a very good friend of mine, Enda. I fell in love with a work of art from FlyOTW which featured a cat called Fudge that was part of a collection known as the Katnip Kartel.  This is a series of photographs of cats in…

Oh Spongebob!

I think it’s safe to say this shocking image of Spongebob caught in the act doesn’t really surprise anyone!  🙂 From HornyToonsGifs! I had to update the post to include this one 🙂

Rest day

Today is a rest day.   I am supposed to be out with colleagues having a drink but I simply was not in the mood.   I am home.  Cooking my dinner and reading my new book, When Fraser Met Billy.   [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOcyUTjYGn4] Bliss
