Santorini summer day 7

Santorini is the most beautiful place. Yesterday I woke up in time to see the sunrise from behind the mountain and then watched in awe, yet again, as the sunset over the caldera. Nature is indeed beautiful. Often the most natural things are. It’s so nice to have the time to just watch the wonders…

Santorini summer day 6

Decisions, decisions…. To say we find it difficult to make decisions on holiday is an understatement to say the least. We have a little daily routine that involves breakfast, beach, suncream; Chill out/blog/read/have a little sleep, swim in the sea; Change for lunch, decide where to go, eat and drink; Back to the beach, more…

Santorini summer: Day 5

Yesterday for some reason we were all more tired than usual. Maybe just being a Sunday makes you immediatley more lethargic. Or maybe it was the excitement and possibly alcohol from the night before. Although my own consumption is greatly reduced due to my lightweightness! The beach was far busier as the families were out…

Santorini Summer day 4

Well here we are, another beautiful day in sunny Santorini. Yesterday felt a little busier, yet still incredibly chilled. So much so, that I nearly fell asleep whilst watching football, in Kelly’s Bar. That would have just been rude, so I took myself off for a walk and a little bit of retail therapy. I…

Santorini Summer Day 3

I am so chilled right now. Obviously that fact I am on holiday is playing a massive part, however the fact I had such a good nights sleep is definately the biggest reason. We (my hubby and I) haven’t slept properly for weeks. Either waking too early, or being too hot or just not able…

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…

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…
