January Catch Up

You know that saying careful what you wish for? One, my Mum loves to repeat. I feel like I haven’t spend much quality time lately with the cats. The universe heard and answered in it’s usual way. It get so many wishes, it either doesn’t always listen properly or it does and thinks that doesn’t warrant a good wish so twists it. I ended up with a tummy bug, out for 24 hours.

The cats were close by, one an angel, the other an angel until he got hangry. His mama couldn’t get up to feed him and he let her know. P was away traveling also down with the same bug, so it was probably for the best he wasn’t here. I spent (more…)

Christmas Weekend Friday Favourites

Happy Christmas!

I’ll keep the chit chat short and sweet this week and get straight into this week’s Weekend Friday Favourite or last week’s as I feel asleep editing last night. A mix of things that have caught my eye or made me smile this week.

Buff Epic Run 2017 and Catch Up

Maori Race Can Zam Santa Coloma

I completed my 3rd obstacle race this year back in November! The Maori Race. A 7km, 30 obstacle race in a more urban setting. I ran my first Maori Race back in June. It wasn’t my intention to join a team. I met 2 other girls on the course and we teamed up for the remainder. None of us knew our names until afterwards! It was great working as team. Less burpees and help with the more tricky obstacles. On reflection, I’m not sure if I want to run as a team again. I’m happy to help others along the course and appreciate the help back (especially with those walls!), I just like the challenge it gives me individually.

As with every race you take away what you need to work on. My last one was the walls. I’ve been working on (more…)
