Christmas at Waddesdon Manor

This weekend we continued our traditional festive meet up at Waddesdon Manor….                I’m not a huge fan of Lord Rothschild’s taste in art but at least he’s supporting such talents. Each year Waddesdon has a different theme and this years was about Light which was interesting and included tubular lighting,…

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!…

1.08.02 Tower of London Moat 10K

 After much sceptiscm and doubt I did complete the British Heart Foundation Tower of London Moat 10K today.  Thanks to everyone who sponsored me. I cracked my target and am really pleased to have done so.  The weather has been very blustery here so parts of the run were running into really strong head wind. …

The Fitness Bug

I was recently asked to consider how I use my iPhone to help with my fitness and this was something I hadn’t really put too much thought into recently because, for me if I am  honest, I take this for granted. I have been using many apps for a long time and have reviewed lots of…

Minsmere

On Saturday Richard and I went on a long over due trip to Minsmere. Minsmere is a RSPB reserve and is an area of immense beauty about an hours drive from our home. For our first outing to Minsmere we decided to take the Coast walk which is around 3.5K in length. We are both…

A bunch of glassholes

Google Glass… I’m not convinced. Mainly cause I couldn’t get them to work… But at least we all look like a tit or a glasshole whilst wearing them.

Hatfield Forest 10+K – 1:08:39

This run was different, this run was not what either I nor Enda expected and this run was tough! Things I have learnt following todays run:- Don’t plan a run on or near to the longest (and hottest) day of the year.  We believed as this was a forest run it would be covered.  Only about 40%…

No Numbness But Some Smoke

That’s right, no numbness in todays run because I decided to re-lace my shoes and make sure they were tied looser at the base of my foot towards my toes. I remember when I bought my Lunar Flyknits that there was a small amount of pinching in the little toe of my right foot and…

Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium

Lady Dinahs is London’s first and only cat cafe. It was funded by crowd sourcing online and opened a couple months ago in Shoreditch. We wanted to go to experience the cafe but it was fully booked and had to wait a couple months. Finally our slot came up this week. It’s safe to say…
