My very first half marathon

Today I ran my very first half marathon, something I always thought would have been out of my reach. I am super proud of myself, although a little sore in the legs!

Holiday Lego building

As is often the case in the Christmas period, the kids get bought lots of Lego which is great fun.

This Christmas I spent a lot of time with the boys building various types of vehicle from a replica of a Red Arrow to more simply cars and vans.

A New Years day stroll in Southport

We woke in 2019 to a glorious day weather wise. Clear blue skies, sunny and cold and crisp. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to get out into the fresh air and go for a walk to bring in the new year.

They just don’t make tech like they used too!

What’s in my bag?

First of all, I guess it is the bag itself which is not included in the picture. My bag is a Case Logic 14inch Laptop bag. It is not that big and sometimes I regret not having purchased a larger bag so I can fit more in, however it has its benefit being a bit more compact.
