A Perfect Summers Day Is When The Sun Is Shining..

A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. ~James Dent

Thankfully it is a lovely day again today….

I am not liking the flash floods, thunder and lightning!!

No way of getting out on the bikes with the children yesterday!!

Saturday I did my first Park run 5k race in 5 months.

Back on the running yeah…

But my slowest time, noooo…

27 minutes 10…

On good thing is I’ve set a goal to improve on..

Will I ever get to 24 minutes?

“Setting a goal is not the main thing.
It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan.”

What I wore~

Sunglasses ~ Primark

Dress ~ c/o Kaliko

Shoes ~ c/o Cheekyshoes

Hope your all having a lovely weekend?
