So this week heralded the first proper week in my new team based in Worcester. Now as I live in Derbyshire this has meant having to become a proper commuter on the train for the first time in my working life, and already I’ve got to say the people who do this everyday of their … More Work work work
It was my mums birthday at the weekend and rather than get her a shop bought cake,she asked for a traditional chocolate sponge cake made by yours truly. As well as running and amateur photographry, I’m also very much into baking cakes! I’m not going to claim I’m an expert,and there will be lots of … More Basic Baking!
I went for a run with my running club last night as part of one of our social runs (called social because we finish off at a pub for a pint and some chips,not too healthy but we have been running so it’s a little treat!). As it was nighttime and as I were running … More Call me the Deaf mechanic
I’m home at last after a tiring day at work in which I had to commute on the train there and back. I like getting the train if I have to go in the office as it offers me a chance to read a book which I obviously can’t do if I’m driving! Plus it’s … More It’s a gobbledygook world out there!
I had a meal with my parents at the weekend, and the afternoon made me chuckle as I looked around and saw something which made me realise how funny the English are. Basically we had gone to a really nice English pub which we’d previously visited and the food was so good we decided to … More English Patience
Last weekend I made a trip to the Lake District with a number of my fellow running friends from my running club and it was amazing! The first night didn’t initially bode well, with a huge rain storm hitting while a few of us were eating in a nice pub! I understand this can be … More Lake District trip
Hi all (well to my few followers!) it has been a while since I’ve posted anything again and apologies for that, I have had a manic couple of weeks attending one of my best mate’s wedding two weekends ago (discussed briefly in my blog about the seaside!) and then a wedding reception for the same … More When training goes wrong
Well it’s been a few days or more since my last post, put this down to me finally having a break from work (both my full time job and my charity work!) and deciding I needed a break from my laptop altogether! I had a hectic but fun filled week, having a friend and her … More I do like to be beside the seaside!
I’ve just finished reading a book by one of my favourite authors, Bill Bryson; The Road to Little Dribbling”. For those that don’t know who Bill is (I’m not on first name terms with him, but it’s easier to call him that rather than his whole name all the time!), he is an american author … More A Bryson Review
I can remember my earliest nightmare, one from childhood from when I was about 5 years old and which could be made into a decent horror movie (actually..I’m going to register my nightmare so that I own the copyright to it! No films without my permission please!!) which involved me waking up to see a … More Scare Fest
