My Race, positivity and change

Slight issue, I have my race next Wednesday, however I have been unable to train due to a hernia… Do I still run it? I really am keen on it! Well I will make an off the cuff decision.. 

Also from robbery to a nice promotion in September so a good end to a very bad few days! However I am still going to be doing the video editing courses and saving for potential travel. Just so many options, but as long as I save money when we move to Surrey we will have many paths to consider. How has everyone’s week been so far?

Ups and downs

Hope everyone had a great weekend! 

I absolutely love London, all is well but you always have a point when something bad happens. Unfortunately I was a victim of getting into what looked like a legit taxi and loosing a lot of money as a consequence of being robbed. 

 

I have taken some lessons from this but I mean I was just in the wrong place wrong time situation. Such a shame a beautiful place is spoiled by such incidents, however you just have to power through and enjoy the positives of that weekend. Spent a lot of quality time with Katie and really enjoyed it. 

Hope everyone had a great weekend,

Dragging Days

Some days really do drag! For instance one of them is today! Instead of looking at the bad things though, I turn my attention to the positives to look forward to. 

For instance playing Fifa with friends, exploring and hanging out with Katie. Plenty of this will occur this weekend. This is how I motivate myself through the boring and slow days. I am so excited about my course in October starting but I do not want to wish away the summer, just so much to see and do. 

On another note I went for a 7.5k run last night. Very slow time of 35mins 7mins off of my 28.11mins last week. But it still counts as I covered the distance and it was some exercise as well. 

Anyway off to read some news and have a look at places to visit in the near future.

 

Have a good day!

Easter Weekend

Hellooooooooooo!

Well I enjoyed this weekend by walking nearly 30 miles with Katie overall. So much chocolate and walking. Shame about the weather nearing the end of the holiday. Had a good long think and found the course I shall be taking in October. Very excited to begin this new adventure.

Hope everyone has enjoyed their easter,

Weekend Fun

This weekend was very eventful and exciting! 

First of all we went to The London Zoo for Katie’s birthday. Really enjoyable so much to see and a lot of exotic animals. My favourite point of the trip was when I decided to feed the monkeys hula hoops on the sly. They were more than grateful for this and it was thoroughly amusing for all to watch.

I had no idea how close it was to Camden high street. Such lovely weather and the atmosphere was ideal. The monkey’s for me were the highlight, but I do have a soft spot for the tigers. I do feel a little sorry for the animals kept in captivity, not in natural surroundings. However they are kept well and also who knows in the wild they may have been shot and killed by a troop of hunters…

Definitely worth the visit.

After this we headed back to Katie’s mothers house in Surrey just in time to watch Arsenal just get by against a mediocre Championship side. It is agonising to watch your team from title contenders to possibly missing a champions league spot within three weeks. What went wrong?….

 

Yesterday we decided to play top golf in the sweltering heat, it was ideal. So much fun and enjoyed a couple of cocktails too. I will get the pictures up on Instagram shortly for you all to see. Such a fun weekend!
