Santorini summer day 2

Well I said my goal was to do nothing and we managed it well. There was lots of lounging around on a sunbed,in the shade of a lovely palm unbrella. Lots of swimming in the sea, or should I say floating around. Of course I shreiked like a girl when I first got in and…

Santorini summer

Hello from the very sunny shores of Santorini,Greece. I am writing this from the beach where I have just had my first dip in the sea My version of paradise. This is Ian,my hubby and I’s third visit and we are staying in a different apartment yet again and I must say Nostos studios is…

I Did it!

  Well, here we are at last. Finally I have achieved my latest giant goal and created a new Personal Best for a Marathon! My 2nd Brighton marathon resulted in me finishing in 5hrs 23 minutes, knocking a massive 19 minutes off of my previous time. To say I am thrilled is an understatement. Who…

So far so good!

Firstly a massive apology for going AWOL on you. I’ve been so busy living life, I have barely had time to catch my breath, never mind write about it! At last my day’s off and work pattern seem to follow some semblance of order which has made fitting it all in a bit easier. Although…

My Christmas Miracle!

To be fair I’m not quite sure what’s going on? A Christmas Miracle is actually happening! Anyone who knows me well, is very well aware, that I am not the most organised person on the planet. Thanks to my wonderful friend OCD and a slightly over-exaggerated sense of what I can actually achieve, I am…

How long?!

  So me and Mr Wilmer, aka Mr Wonderful have been together for 25 YEARS. Yes I only look like I’m in my erm *cough, cough* thirties but it’s true! We’ve been together so long it was only right to celebrate with a trip away to one of our favourite places, Cornwall. For some reason…

Legs of jelly, mind of steel!

                  Firstly my apologies for my distinct lack of blogging of late. I’ve been so busy running, I have barely had time to do anything else! I am finally managing to address the balance, although I seem to have got a bit carried away with the resting…

Embrace the early!

So, here I am having woken up at 5am on a Sunday! Yes, you did read that right and no, I don’t have any special event or sun-kissed holiday to go on. No for some reason yet again I have woken up way too early. Try as I might, I just couldn’t get back to…

Tuscany, a feast for the eyes and the waistline.

At last I fulfilled another dream on my bucket list and Ian and I spent five nights in Crespina, Tuscany. I love Italian food, love the passion behind the language and the idea of walking amongst the grape vines and olive groves, is definitely my idea of heaven on earth. When we got there it…

Life after a Marathon.

The trouble with achieving any long held goal, dream or ambition is the inevitable feeling of loss once you’ve finally got there. I know from many years experience as a coach that there always seems to be the “what next?” bit. Let’s face it you’ve worked your socks off, possibly for months. Eat, slept and…
