After leaving the house at about 6.15am and then walking for miles around London, we found ourselves checked into The Hub by Premier Inn Westminster Abbey… which is now our go to in London and we will be back in May- cheap and very cheerful (small- but who spends all their time in their room on a city break? Not the H-Ps!) After a quick … Continue reading London Baby!!
Last weekend me, Frankie & Hayley went to the National Running Show at the NEC in Birmingham. This event was run over both Saturday & Sunday with different speakers on each day & lots of companies selling their goods & promoting their races. We decided to go on the Sunday, so off we set, an early 6am start to get us down to Birmingham for … Continue reading National Running Show
HAPPY NEW YEAR So, in my last post I said I’d keep you updated on my training albeit limited as I regain my health… scratch that.

In the past year she has starting to find a of love of country music & I had found that The Shires were playing in Edinburgh a few days after her birthday. Music & city break, perfect! … Continue reading A bit of Country in the City
I’ve not blogged in a while & that’s pretty much because I’ve not done too much. So I’m using the start of the year to try to change things. If you’re anything like me I always start out the year with good intentions of loosing weight & getting fitter & it’s always a rollercoaster of a ride through the 12months, some months being super good … Continue reading New year new me….again!
For the past few years I’ve been saying I’m going to go to the Royal Cheshire Show & this year we finally made it! My brother-in-law bought some land over the last few years & has gradually built up a stock of sheep, pigs & chickens & we spent a few days at the farm during lambing season this year, helping some of the sheep … Continue reading Flat caps at the ready!
