Santorini summer day 8 and 9

Sorry for the lack of a blog yesterday. We had an early start for a visit to beautiful Oia. More about that later… Wednesday was an incredible day for sport, with England being in the first world semi final for 28 years. Even though the outcome was incredibly disapointing, it is a massive achievement, none…

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 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…

Life’s easier with team work

  Since coming back from holiday life seems to have been a bit hectic. Trying to fit everything in, is as always, a challenge. Friends to see, additional qualifications to work towards, award ceremonies to attend, leaving do’s and more people than ever wanting to quit smoking! Phew, it’s been fun but exhausting. Add to…

Holiday Heaven

I’ve just come back from one of the best holidays I’ve ever had. Ian and I have never spent so much time together in the whole 24 years we’ve been together and amazingly we are still talking! Okay so I’m always talking, but he’s still there to hear it. We joined my Sister-in-law Judy and…

Preparation, preparation, preparation.

I can’t believe how much planning there is to going away on holiday. I thought I was pretty much done for this year’s trip to sunny Santorini, but there always seems to be something else to do, no matter how organised I think I am. Don’t get me wrong, compared to previous holidays, I am…

On a mission!

Well since my holiday trying to get back to normal has felt like a nigh on impossible task. Since the start of this week though, I’ve been on a mission to get jiggy with it and get myself back in to gear. All good coaches have coaches and I am no exception, but with my…

Sun, Sea and Santorini Sunsets.

Well I am back after my amazing holiday in Santorini. To be honest I have actually been back for a week but my body decided it wanted two weeks off so I have actually felt like I am having some sort of weird out of body experience and I have still been there in spirit…
