My Triathlon Challenge

Yesterday (the 8th November), I took part in my first ever triathlon event along with Caius (also doing his first ever), Liberty’s Boyfriend (who has done a couple before) & our friend Kian (another first-timer, though braver/more mental than Caius & I and did the longer distance discipline).I was seriously under-prepared after my training somewhat…… Continue reading My Triathlon Challenge

May Challenge – Wakey Wakey!

I didn’t set myself a challenge for April but I did achieve quite a lot. I kept up with my reading list, I crossed the finish line of the London Marathon and I almost walked head on into Will Young (no really, I actually did).

February Challenge – The ‘Sort Your Head Out’ Edition

This month I am setting myself a very simple one-off challenge: Get my hair cut. It’s time for a change methinks. Partly because it is ages since I had my hair done properly and partly because it is a whole new year and, more than that, a new chapter in my life and I feel…… Continue reading February Challenge – The ‘Sort Your Head Out’ Edition
