Memorial Hockey.

28 Apr

A few months ago, one of my friends was tragically knocked over by a taxi on a night out and killed.

He was a keen hockey player, and last weekenend, my local sports centre opened a new pitch in his memory and we had a big tournament ioncluding teams from his primary school, secondary school, university, workplace and hockey club.

It was a lovely way to remember him, and I was honoured to don the green and gold of my primary school again!

I hope you enjoyed it Rob xxx


Happy Blog Birthday To Me!

27 Apr

I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for a whole year today! I never thought it would last this long – I’ve tried blogging and journalling a number of times before but never been able to stick to it for longer than a few months. I guess I just needed a story to tell.

So thank you for reading my story! Thank you for your supportive comments. Thanks for making me smile. Thanks for inspiring me with your own blog posts. Thanks for a wonderful year – here’s to another!

Dear One Tree Hill!

16 Apr

I love you. All 9 series’ of you.

Thanks for always being there for me whatever my mood! I watch you when I’m tired. I watch you when I’m feeling sorry for myself. I watch 10 episodes of you on those days that I have a hangover so bad I never want to drink again.

One request though, please bring Lucas back! The world is a much better place when my Monday night includes Chad Michael Murray!

How about you? What’s your go-to, chill out programme?

101 in 1,001.

I’ve decided to take up the ‘101 in 1,001’ challenge. Check out my list here.

Have you ever completed this challenge? Are you doing it now? What goals would you set yourself?


Postsecret <3

13 Apr

I thought everyone in the world knew what postsecret was…until last night. I was having problems buffering this Postsecret TED talk…

And it all came out that my mum, and brother and his girlfriend had never heard of this phenomenon!

For those of you that already love Postsecret, check out Frank’s latest video for more amazingness. For those of you that don’t, check out Frank’s video to fall in love with this project.


Weekend Photo Dump

11 Apr

I can’t believe how fast this week is flying by – I guess that’s what happens in the holidays 😦 needless to say, I’ve been having too much fun to catch up from the weekend, but here you go…..

Have a good week, friends!

Back On It!

9 Apr

As I said over the weekend, I’ve gained a few lbs recently, and my routine needs a bit of a shake up. I am starting to feel podgy again and I don’t like it.

So I need a plan!

3 basic goals this week –

– Drink a lot more water

– Get some exercise in everyday, even if it’s just 30minutes walk with Maisie

– Start looking at my diet again. I know that Slimming World works for me, and althought I’m not going to follow the plan to the T again, I am going to focus on eating a lot more ‘free food’ this week.

I am going to make a ‘pledge’ now to lose 7lbs. I would like to comfortably get back to the lower end of my target weight range, and feel better about myself for the summer 🙂

So, let’s do this!
