It’s been an interesting week in the world of body politics. I’d been idly pondering a post like this for a while. Partly based on this article on Girls Gone Strong about the pressure to be “picture perfect” as a Personal Trainer. It made me think about my own feelings about becoming a Personal Trainer […]

Yes, I know that Travel Man already use the 48 hours in…. title. But seeing as I pretty much spent EXACTLY 48 hours in Venice, from arrival to getting on the bus to head home I figured it was as good a title as any for a quick run down of my birthday trip earlier […]

Last year I headed back to the place I grew up, the Isle of Sheppey, to complete the Island Run 10k for the first time. As well as the momentous and historic occasion of being the first time I had run it, it was also the first time the race had been a 10k rather […]

I would say that one of my hobbies right now is maintaining as close to my ideal standard of life as possible while spending as little money as possible. With 2 of us self-employed in the house, income can sometimes be, shall we say, a little unreliable. We do ok, but considering my “ideal standard […]

Ah, the gym. I love how you make me feel stronger and mean I can take boxes off delivery drivers with one hand after they’ve warned me how heavy it is. I don’t always love those days when I went a bit hard after a bit of a break, or just really pushed it and […]

I really love having a glass of wine in the evening. I like the ritual of opening a bottle with dinner and I like to chose a nice wine glass to drink it out of. It’s like a full stop on the end of the day. It’s also part of a nice relaxing bath ritual. […]

After last weeks disturbing levels of excitement, fun and activity, this week has once again returned to boring […]

Well, if this week was anything, it certainly wasn’t a quiet one! I’ve had a super busy, and super fun week. Today is my first day with absolutely nothing to do and I plan to go for a run, have a very long bath and then spend the afternoon binge watching S11 of Drag Race […]

Hi there! It’s actually been a couple of weeks since I checked in on a Sunday.
