Birthday Weekend

Happy Thursday!

This past weekend saw my birthday, tea with friends, the usual training, running, of course the zoo and the beach. Yes, beach season has begun and that makes me one happy girl! 

Last Friday I celebrated my birthday with my usual birthday wish, sunny skies, the beach and all day in shorts. The morning started (more…)

Last Week’s Catch Up And Cat Logic

Happy Birthday Mr AJ!

Starting with the most important thing first. Last Monday Mr AJ celebrated his 15th birthday! I’ll keep saying it for forever. I can’t believe he once fitted in the palm of my hands and ruled the street. Well, I like to think he ruled the street. I once saw him late one night in London chasing a fox through the terraced gardens in the snow. The fox went under the fence, he went over the fence. Maybe they were playing. There was a family of foxes at the end of the garden living under a clapped out garden shed and he used to regularly spend nights out.

Weekend Friday Favourites

This past week’s been crazy.

I mentioned a poster would be nice, to which she dug out the leaflet saying you can’t fit all this on a poster). I should have just kept quiet and if the parcel got returned, it got returned. 

Apparently 2kg is 2kg regardless of what’s just been taken out. (more…)

Last Weekend of April and May Day 2017 Part 2: The Zoo, Earth Day Fair and Parc del Garraf

Part of of the last weekend of April and May Day can be found here.

I waited until the rain had stopped Sunday morning before running. I don’t mind running in the rain, however the rain was meant to stop half way through my run and as it was warmish I didn’t want deal with running tying jackets around my waist. I took advantage of waiting to get some overdue tidying done. That was until we went to Ikea this week to replace some shelving units, pulled everything out that I’ve still to go through along with rearranging furniture. The changes are better, so much space opened up!

Parc del Garraf

Run done in perfect running weather and hardly anyone out (even better!) (more…)
