This morning I ran for the second time this week. Only 4 miles and I can’t say they were particularly comfortable. It was rainy and miserable and my head was throbbing after about 5 minutes. I’m nervous about it but I’m thinking I will run the half marathon next sunday. A few people have said […]
I wanted to spend some time sewing last night but I was in a bad mood – for no good reason – but let’s just say I was not in good fettle. Be warned, if you sew in a bad mood you will have bad sewing mojo. And things will go wrong and then you […]
Morag has been on the hunt for something for Grier to wear for the jubilee – don’t worry Brodie is sorted in the wardrobe and flag department. Nothing really seemed to fit the bill though so we were considering a plain white dress – which would obviously be lovely and could be worn again and […]
I loved my paddling pool as a child. Actually I loved sitting in just a basin of water. I always thought that if I was lucky enough to have children a pool in summer was a must do. Brodie splashed himself into exhaustion. Don’t you just want to jump right in? Glad to see Greig […]
Our house should probably still have a big X on the front door due to all the illness inside. No one is really 100% but we are on the mend. I’m starting to have major anxiety about the time I’ve missed from the half marathon training but there is nothing I can do. I will […]
Greig – Should we put up the seat on your bike Brodie? Brodie – You mean the saddle, Dad? Me – Brodie, would you like a ‘Wildlife’ yoghurt? (This is the brand he chose an hour before) Brodie – A railway yoghurt Mum? Me (exasperated) – No listen Brodie, I said ‘Wildlife’ yoghurt. Brodie – […]
Now Grier is unwell too, I’m just trying to remember to be gentle with us all. This might help raise some cheer.
Our holiday was wonderful. It was so nice to pack up and head off for a new adventure. Our log cabin was literally on the Tummel River and was a home away from home. We saw lots of beautiful scenery – admittedly mostly from the car windows and had some great days out. Our favourite […]
So I ran yesterday morning. It was sunny. I had breakfast. I ran a new route. I finished 10K in a reasonable time. I ran my fastest ever mile. Such a good way to start our holiday week. My turnaround point was here – halfway over the footbridge over Newbridge roundabout. It felt almost poetic […]
So this doesn’t really keep me awake at night but…… If you were coming round to mine for a bit of coffee and walnut cake, which beverage would you require to accompany it? A cup of tea or two? Freshly brewed coffee? Or something else? I’ve never quite worked this one out.
