o scotland’s hills for me!

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

And another happy and fruitful trip draws to a close, leaving me with a spring in my step, a warm glow and a suitcase comfortingly replete with enough salt, sugar and saturated fat to knock over a Nessie. As visits to new cities go, Inverness can certainly take it’s rightful place among my favourites despite […]

you take the high road…

Monday, May 30th, 2011

…and I’ll take the 1135 First Scotrail service to Inverness (calling at Haymarket, Kirkcaldy, Perth, Dunkeld and Birnam, Pitlochry, Blair Atholl, Newtonmore, Kingussie, Aviemore and Inverness). A surprisingly busy train it is too, and I post having created an Area with coat, Kindle and knitting placed carefully about the periphery of my table seat in […]

and i love to live so pleasantly…

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

…even though it may not be a life of luxury (although a quick peep inside my gloriously full refrigerator could possibly form the basis of a persuasive argument to the contrary) I am enjoying a busy yet leisurely few days, until today having shamefully not shown my face at the gym since last Sunday (mostly […]

i’m a road runner, baby…

Sunday, May 8th, 2011

And thirty eight minutes or so after nine, soaked to the marrow (along with fifteen hundred or so others) I did it! In fact technically I sort-of did it twice since it took me nearly an hour to walk back afterwards, whereupon the sun came (and remains) steadfastly out and blue skies abound, after two […]

the mid week update…

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

First and foremost, a quick line to reassure upcoming visitors that the boiler is now fixed (and obviously the weather has got warmer anyway) so any fears of chilled extremities can go out of the window – yay! I will naturally be looking forward to receiving the bill, considering it took all of thirty seconds […]

you know it’s a bank holiday when…

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

…the pervasive chill filling the apartment emanates not from the open windows, the comfortingly well stocked fridge-freezer nor even from my reaction to the eleventh ‘hey babe’ text message of the weekend; in time honoured BH tradition the combi boiler has decided to join the rest of the nation in kicking back for a bit […]

a grand day out…

Monday, April 25th, 2011

And a happy Easter Monday to all now that the main festivities are over with, although if the word around the campfire is to be believed many folk in civvy street are taking these coming three days as holiday, and therefore won’t be back in the office for another week thanks to events on Friday […]

As the day draws nearer, it’s about time I updated folks on our Race for Life progress (and see above for a further celebration of some of the merchandise, both mine and theirs). The current sponsor money bird-in-the-hand-wise is £140, with about that again already promised so all being well, my original target of £500 […]

keep on running…

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Before I do anything else, and bearing in mind I have an impromptu mad dash to That Sheffield tomorrow for a catch-up dalliance en route to my original destination of Coventry on Thursday (and have to pack!), I need to thank the people who have already sent Race For Life donations via Paypal since I […]

full steam ahead!

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

And spring has most definitely sprung at last – yay! The sun is still shining outside my windows at seven pm, Scarborough’s lovely daffodils and primroses are all in full bloom amongst the woodlandy-bits and I, ever the optimist, have left home without a coat on two separate occasions this last week for the first […]
