So I’m doing the rounds at the moment, trying to raise some dosh as I’m running the London Marathon to raise money for a charity. It’s a charity that is near and dear to my heart, but something has stumped me since I started shaking my virtual bucket at people: the response I get when … Continue reading Home is where the heart is.
Anyone that knows me, either virtually or IRL, will know how fixated I am on all things running. I fell in love with running about 18 months ago. And have barely stopped since. I’ve said it countless times before, but the biggest battle when running is the one that goes on between your ears. Running … Continue reading Being a bit of a doozer.
Minor caveat: This is a little bit of a rant... So forgive me please. I was having a chat with a mate about something at the weekend – actually not something, someone – and their approach to a situation and how by not taking control of it that they had became a victim of it, … Continue reading Victim or victor?
I love sleep. It's one of my most favourite things in the whole wide world. I cannot think of anywhere that makes me happier than when I am curled up in my bed. All nice and snug and warm. Ahhh. And relax... However I am currently developing an intense dislike of my alarm clock. Being … Continue reading You snooze, you lose.
Minor confession: I didnt blog last night. Bad Mel. Truth be told I was in a rather cantankerous (UNDERSTATEMENT) mood for most of the day yesterday. No particular reason as to why, other than I was feeling a tad frustrated by things that werent exactly going my way. Usual work orientated stuff. You know? I … Continue reading Me and my grumpy pants…
It’s been a full on couple of days. Excellent day at work on Friday – despite the fact I was a bit of a donut not once, but twice – plus a corker of a gym session (3 miles on the treadmill – the idea was sprints which didn’t quite happen!) with my training buddy. … Continue reading Boilers, kids and memories…
It’s a well-kept secret that I smoke. Used to years ago, went through all the pain of giving up and then stupidly started again a couple of years ago. In the spirit of not making NY resolutions I decided that I wouldn’t make any kind of resolution to give up smoking. No sirree bob. Not … Continue reading The evil weed.
Couple of things to set the scene: I don't have the greatest sense of direction on the planet Map reading isn't my forte - I think that I failed that badge when I was a girl guide I dont tend to notice when I get lost... Until that is I'm really lost. I had … Continue reading Lost.
I've got my grumpy pants on today. Well and truly. Woe betide anyone thats gets in my way! Like most of the rest of the UK population I got naff all sleep because of the storms that were blowing an absolute hoolie most of the night. Wide awake at 2am. Lie there and start at … Continue reading Grumpy pants…
So I'm going to cheat - well as we're friends lets call it bending the rules - during this whole Janathon thing. I mean I'm going to run. Natch. However I mean cheat as in I'm not going to write a totally new blog post EVERY night - I'm going to set up one post … Continue reading Janathon
