A BBQ in the Summer Sunshine

Today we attended a BBQ on what was lovely day and we were so lucky with the weather as it was gorgeous.

The kids had a great time playing football in the garden and then the “water snake” came out and they got wet through – but they had a great time.

An Afternoon on The Range

After talk of going to play an actual round of golf at some point over the summer holidays, I thought I better head back to the golf range to see if I could still hit the ball.

I wasn’t that bad actually although a little to inconsistent. Perhaps a few more visits are in order.

Amazing Anglesey in Wales

I have just returned from a few days a way in a lovely part of the UK that I have rarely spent time in before which Anglesey in north west wales. We (the family) spent a few days with my parents, them in their caravan and us (me and my wife) in a nearby hotel. The kids – well they of course wanted to stay in the caravan with grand parents.

7.6 Mile Run

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.

Distance Record Run – 7.6 Miles

Barmouth Bay in Wales for a Week

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.
