Saturday was a one off "sports day" organised by ITV in an attempt to try and get people out of the house and being more active. I love stuff like this and had to get involved.

Last Sunday was the day of the Not the Rio Marathon which was set in the grounds of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.  I was really looking forward to this race.  I love quirky/one off races.

As we were in a hotel overnight, I was concerned about breakfast/fuelling...

I can't believe that a week has passed since our trip down to London.

We travelled down extremely early last Saturday morning and arrived in London just after 8 am!  On Saturday, we met up with my dad and Sandra in Greenwich.  Apart from an extremely brief walk through...

Our year is never complete with a trip to York Races.  It's a cracking day out for all of the family.

Well we started the week with a bang and a scorching day at Flamingo Land and the fun continued.  On Tuesday and Wednesday, we were joined by my youngest sister, Finty and we headed out and about York, exploring the sights.

The purpose was to try and visit places w...

My apologies, it has been a while since I've had time to update my blog.  It's been a whirlwind few weeks.

I'm currently on holiday from work and this is the first time that we have had a "staycation", which is simply a fancy way of saying we're not travelling abroad th...
