Yesterday I had a running revelation.  This confirmed solo runner went running with friends.  And it was the bomb. I’ve always been too worried to run with other people.  I won’t be fast enough. I might not be fit enough.  I’ll be too slow.  I won’t be able to go the distance.  I won’t be […]

New Year’s Promise – or Pay!

New Year’s Promise – or Pay!

So it’s New Year’s Eve and I’m kind of sad to see the back of 2014.  2014 has been a blast. It was the year I bought a paddle board and learnt to use it. Me!  Out on the water in board shorts and a rash vest.  I ran the Clare Valley half marathon, then […]

Jelly-Belly, or the need to lose weight

Jelly-Belly, or the need to lose weight

I’ve been doing some reading whilst I was away.  (Did you even notice that I was gone)?  A lot of it about running.  Funny, that, hey?  Me, reading about running.  Well, actually, it was a first!  Until recently, I’d never read anything about running or by a runner.  Not in book form, anyway.  (Runnersworld doesn’t count […]

Mark Latham and the West Side Story

Mark Latham and the West Side Story

I’m really confused.  That’s nothing new, but hear me out.  I’m a bit of a new kid on the block and not a massive follower of things political, so I’d never heard of Mark Latham before yesterday.  But I was doing a bit of quiet reading of Amy’s blog over at Handbag Mafia (which I […]

Emergency Kittens

I have decided I want a kitten.  A few weeks ago, I decided I wanted a blog.  Now I have a blog.  When I decide I want something, it usually happens.  I am impetuous that way. So now I am on a mission to own a kitten, and the poor hubstacle has had to endure a […]

Run Fat B!tch Run!

Run Fat B!tch Run!

I bought a book at the weekend.  In fact I bought two.  About running.  Nothing spectacular in that, I know, but it was a first for me.  I have never bought a book about running before.  But there is so much that I don’t know about running, and I can’t rely on Coach Zoey all […]

IKEA saved my life today!

IKEA saved my life today!

  Honestly, I thought I was going to die today.  I didn’t have the whole “life flashed before me” kind of experience, but I did want to have a full blown panic.  But as none of my fellow passengers had gone into mental meltdown, I decided I’d better restrain myself. Plus there was a head […]

Confessions of a reluctant dog walker

I have a confession to make that might be a little unexpected.  I am writing this right now because the alternative is having to take the dogs for a walk.  And bearing in mind I reckon I’m quite the little dog lover, not to mention some time Fitbit addict, it might seem a bit strange.  […]

Remembering Tom

A bit of a coincidence today.  Each member of our team at work takes it in turns to give a “safety tool box talk” and today fell to me.  On Remembrance Day. Being a Brit, this is our one day of remembrance, but my topic for my talk was not so much about fallen war […]

Where were you when the Berlin Wall came down?

Where were you when the Berlin Wall came down?

Is it really 25 years since the Berlin Wall came down?  That really is a scary statistic!  It only feels like yesterday.    You see that is one world event that I remember very well, because I was there!  Not literally there, as in Berlin, trying to breach the wall to reach the Brandenburg Gate, you […]
