On Thursday it was my husbands day off from work, so I talked him into going shopping!!
IKEA was the perfect date, with a large cooked breakfast to swing him into going and a chance for me to grab some things I had been planning to buy for a while.
Having a small car I could not buy everything I wanted ( wow I love this shop ) I did pick up and amazing cupboard with flora boxes to store lots of things away, a wonderful big lampshade for only £2.25, laptop tray for my knee and a big chunky perfect red rug to go under my kitchen table in bright red top match my shirt :0)

Wow after a cold Autumn feel last week, the weather has turned out lovely and warm again over the last few days...Summer dresses still in my wardrobe so it would be rude not to make the most of the sunshine, warm tights on though ( just in case it decided to turn cold ).
I did a big clear out on Wednesday and packed lots of summer things away, ready so I can find my chunky jumpers and jeans. Bags of summer clothes for the garage to save for next year and some for the charity shop, things I know I'm never going to wear again.
This week there has been a big change...Not only in weather but also in our home. Thursday our oldest son left home and flew the nest to university, wow nothing prepares you for the day they leave...
On a happier note the same day after dropping my son off, I returned home to find some London Marathon post waiting for me. I found out .... I had got a place in the London Marathon for 2014 the
"Your In" magazine...
Wow what a week it has been,,, lots of things to look forward too,,, my husband got the "not in reply" don't be blue magazine. Wanting a goal to get him out training he only went and booked the Paris marathon!! Never been to France and not even having a passport at the minute there is lots happing already next year...
Yeah running in the snow and dark winter mornings,,, chasing the miles for London. Aw never a dull moment. Anyway enough of me. Want to link up and share your style with us?
Aww been a busy few day, we booked a late holiday on Sunday night and got up at 6am Monday morning to travel the 4 and a half hours down to Butlins in Minehead.
We have had a super, fun busy week and had lots of wonderful food and cake. Eek I best not weigh myself this week with all the chocolate cake I have eaten. Not much running so hopeful back into a routine today.

Arr I'm really not feeling very well today :(
All night I've had a really bad migraine and really feel like I've got food poisoning symptoms.
Ive sleep all night and kept trying to get up but felt to ill to, just coming around. So glad I didn't have any wine last night or I would have thought it was that. My husband has booked me a half marathon for in 6 weeks time and I had planed to get a long run in today too :(
3 days without running and I feel so bad, had some good news this morning that has shocked me all the runners in the house!! even my 2 oldest boys who run fast. My resting heart rate this morning even when poorly was 40!! This means if I try harder I can improve with my running, and my heart rate is the best in the house :)
Yeah sometimes its the little things that cheer us up. Now off to drink more water, I may have dehydrated myself as I'm not to much of a fan of water!!

Busy week with the children off school and trying to get my marathon training done. I wore this outfit on Sunday for a lazy afternoon after doing my 16 miles run. I wanted to wear something nice and comfy.
