A Catch Up With My Boys..


Polka dots and Converse 2 of my favourite things to wear!!


A few weeks ago when it was the half term school holidays, me the hubby and 2 youngest kids had a lovely day out visiting our eldest 2 sons who are both at Uni, for a catch up! We had not seen them both since September but it felt like a lot longer than that.

One Of Those Days!!


Instead of leaving Mollie the Collie at home yesterday; we though it would be good for her to come with us and walk around the park whilst my youngest son and daughter ran Cross Country.

A nice though turned out to be more stress then I could imagine!

Mollie loves chasing her frisbee; so as soon as we got to the park she wanted to be let of the lead to play. She tugged and pulled to get off but eventually realised she had to stay on the lead. 


Here she is nicely waiting for my sons race to begin. She is OK with seeing running; run by her but when she heard us call my sons name she started going crazy wanting to run with him. She love to run with him at the park after school; so why can't she run with him now, she must have though!?

As soon as my sons race was over, we seen grandma and her partner who was watching the race and offered to take Mollie a walk. Great, she had been pulling me all around all morning.

Summer 2016...


The Summer holidays came and went so quickly. 

We had a jam packed school holiday with a different adventure almost everyday. 

One of our highlights of the Summer was visiting family and heading to the beach. 

Today I am sharing some beach photos, that I never ended up having time to share. 

We wont get to see the sea now until next year again now.

Day's Out : Skegness...


How quickly has the six weeks holiday gone by? Back to school for mine next week.

We have been out and about all over the country. 

One day me and my daughter went out for a girls only day out. Just me and her. It was lovely. 

We was wondering where to go and my daughter picked the beach!! The nearest beach to us is in Skegness, a 3 hour train ride away. My mum and dad have a caravan there so it was a good reason to go and visit them.


We texted grandma and grandad to say we was on the train and coming to visit them. A good job or they would have been out for the day. ( like they were the time after this visit when my son came with us!).

20 Year Anniversary...


Today is me and the Mr's 20th Wedding Anniversary today.

20 year; being married!! 

How time flies.

It only feels like yesterday a few years ago. I was getting my words all jumbled up. Nothing new there then!

When I nearly said I would take this man to be my unlawful husband! Before I quickly change it.


I'm not sure who deserves the medal more. Ha!!

Me or him!!

I'm saying me ;)

And I'm sure hubby would say him!

Horrible History Break At Butlins..


We have just come back from a fun filled week at Butlins Skegness. All as part of my Butlins Ambassador role. We got the chance to try out a Horrible History themed break. Perfect for Spring Bank Holiday. The only thing during our week, which was not perfect however, the weather! Although as it turns out, if you stay at Butlins, come rain shine or gale force winds the fun really never stops!!

Read on...


We decided to travel by train. So a nice early walk to the station was needed. Everyone up with a smile, with a spring in their step? Not likely!! After a few tantrums (mainly the Hubby;-) we are on our way. A few hours after getting up we arrive in Skegness to be greeted by the Jolly Fisherman.

Parkrun Parkfun..


Last week as I had been ill, the husband got to run Parkrun again. Me and my daughter go to cheer them on and held their coats for them. Mollie also came along for the walk but all she ready wants to do is run with them.

Coats : check
Wellies : Check
Hats and gloves : Check

It is still really cold first thing.


Waiting for the race to start so we can walk around the course to cheer the boys on. Mollie focusing on my son, hoping he shouts her over for a run!?

Parkrun Parkfun...


Yummy foods to warm us up..

We had to work hard for it first though..


Last Saturday me and my youngest son ventured out into the cold and icy early morning (well not that early but it feel like it in Winter) for a 5K run at our local Parkrun.

Feeling Great? : The Wednesday Blog Hop..


This photo was taken by my husband on Saturday before my sons race. He asked our son how he was feeling? This was his reply!

Think he was feeling pretty confident as he has put the training in. Running everyday since New Years day has really paid off for him. I really need to try this next year as I've not even ran for a week!!



It may have been a miserable rainy day but he did amazing and gave it his all!!

Fitness Friday : Could You Run Everyday?


Could you run everyday? I know I can't. I try every New Year. 1st Resolution, go out on a run everyday. I once lasted until February, but then fell off the wagon. So Fitness Friday today with my running hero. My 12 year old son!


In January he made a New Years Resolution. To run at least one mile every day. We are now nearly in November and he is still going strong.  Even when we have been away on holidays, or days out. Even in the pouring rain and last Winters snow.  As Roy Castle used to say "Dedication's all you need."
