I am currently sat on a Trans Pennine Express train from Edinburgh to Preston station having spent a thoroughly lovely weekend away at WordCamp Edinburgh. Like other WordCamp events this is a great opportunity to learn new things and met new people. This weekend was additionally special however as it was the first time I had the opportunity to meet some of our new team at Highrise Digital.
Today was the Leyland Fire Station Open Day. The fire station opened its doors to the public to allow us to have a look around the station, see the equipment they use and of course have a sit in some of the vehicles they use.
Today I amazed myself I think as I managed to run 7.6 miles – the furthest I think I have ever run in my life. I was very proud a very tired when I got back. Usually my route is between 4.8 and 6.6 miles long but today I was determined to better it and did an extra circuit at the end. I am now trying to achieve my new goal of 814 miles in 2017.
This weekend we took the opportunity to have a short break in Wales at a fiends caravan. We headed out there straight after school on Friday evening and arrived around 19:00 for Fish and Chips.
Being half term we took the opportunity to get away and spend the week in Wales in a caravan. We made the trip to Barmouth, on the West coast of wales which although a 3 hour journey was hold-up free which as a bonus.
The holiday park we stayed on has a lovely pool and the first morning we spent some time in the pool with the boys. They love swimming especially when they are in the pool with their mum and I.
Today was a beautiful day in the 20’s and so I thought I would head out on the bike a do a few miles. Absolutely loved it. Below are a few pictures I took on my 8.6 mile ride.
This weekend saw the next in a series of conferences about WordPress (the software I use to build websites with) happening in Bristol. This weekend was the very first WordCamp Bristol and was an opportunity to visit a city which I have not been to before.
Having booked a lovely looking AirBnB house this time I decided to have a little road trip, picking up a friend and fellow WordPress enthusiast Jonny. The journey down to Birmingham to collect Jonny and also onward to Bristol was wonderful with no traffic issues. We have one stop near to Bristol to get some lunch.
Today was a Thursday like any other day, but it turned out to be a really interesting day and a very enjoyable one. The day had three bike rides, a run, a trip to the park and a great day at work. Nothing special but worth sharing some photos of.
Today I bought myself a bike which coincided with James getting his next bike as he had outgrown his smaller bike passed up from his brother. I am certainly looking forward to more adventure cycle rides like the one we had after tea this evening!
Today was our get away for the Easter break to the sunny Spanish Island of Majorca. We had an early start in order to at the airport for 0600 which meant a long day, which as I type is coming to an end. We had a fantastic week in the sun, not too hot and certainly not too cold. In fact we will be going back again very soon.
