It's been a while........

It's been a while since I last blogged. There's been no particular reason why I haven't blogged as to be honest a lot has happened that I could have blogged about.    I just haven't! So there!

 So since last time.............

 I ran my first 10k, yay! *does little very proud of myself claps* My aim was to run the whole way, no stopping or walking and I did it. I ran with Julia, a friend from my running group. We kinda run at a similar pace so we did together in 1hr 15mins ish!

 I've been running for about 10months now, and at the start if you would have told me I'd be running 5K & 10k events I would have belly laughed in your face. I feel great, have toned up and lost a bit of weight. So all in all it's been really good. I also love the buzz afterwards as well.

 As a family, we embarked on our first family holiday abroad. We travelled to Fuertaventura and spent a week in the SUN! Yes, there is still such a thing as the sun and it was wonderful! As soon as we got back I started looking for next years holiday. So I'm pleased to say I officially have the holiday bug again. Oh how I missed it!

Also,  I've also been considering a career change. I've been working in the restaurant industry since I was 16 and I 'like' my job, but don't love it at the moment. It's a big step and am looking in to it, so we'll see what happens......

The kids were invested in Beavers last month. They love it!
HOWEVER........... I love my children dearly, but if they don't earn any badges whilst at Beavers I will not be upset. I hate sewing!!! It took me a whole evening to sew on six badges.
 Much wine was drunk that evening......oh hang on maybe that was my problem! Anyhoo! I hate sewing!!!!    FACT!!!!!

The offending badges above. 

Since sewing the badges I have found out there is such a thing as fabric glue. So during these holidays, I will be hunting the shops for this product and will gladly pay many pounds for it if it gets me out of sewing!

Happy little Beavers with slightly askew badges. 


  1. Great blog post, what ya thinking of changing to and your mother says, vis-a-vis the sewing, now you know how she felt when she had to sew on all you little Brownie badges! On the other hand she appears now to have lost that particular skill by the number of shirts I have with missing buttons, maybe when you next visit.......

  2. Not sure yet keeping my options open. On the button front.........NO CHANCE!
