These days time is even more in short supply, with the constraints of a working life, hobbies, keeping relationships with friends close, adding in playdates for your children and just generally maintaining your house where do you find time to make memories and just have fun?

Three weeks ago Scott and I decided we wanted an arbour seat for our garden. Off we set to the garden centre to see how much it would set us back. We quickly left again once we realised we didn't have a spare £350 to spend and Scott came up with the grand idea of… Continue reading And our garden is complete!

I'm so chuffed because today I… Continue reading 17.89 miles = new record!

I've been looking forward to it as I get a shiny new white wire on my top teeth which helps me feel as confident as I can in these things(the old wire loses its coating as you brush your teeth and ends up silver by… Continue reading Adult Braces – progress
So since I started walking more and recording when and how much I walked I'm finding I'm becoming more competitive with how many miles I can get done in a day, a week and now I've got the stats a month!!
