I’ve ran just over 65 miles this January! Perhaps not the most impressive amount in the world but it means something to me! I’ve battled with my weight since I was a teen, and when I first got into running in my 20’s the weight fell off. But life is very different now and I’d… Continue reading Running my way out of the winter blues
This weekend something extremely rare happened…we had absolutely NOTHING planned, no one coming round and no arrangements to go see anyone else! I’d go as far to say this might have been an absolute first! I’m just not very good at taking it easy and I’m my own worst enemy. Total fomo.

Baby Sis… Continue reading Oh Jesus!
After a night out with a group of much loved friends, getting a little out of hand and resulting in a very hungover Sunday, I have decided to have a full month off the booze! Here we are….beginning of the night…so far, so civilised. And here I am towards the end. Cringe. I’ve decided I… Continue reading A month on the wagon!
