Friday’s Photo

Friday’s Photo

It’s Friday night, and I’m heading out to a hen night.
So, here’s a photo of my sister’s Christmas Tree, to add to the festive feeling! 🙂

Happy Friday, all!

Huggin’ Stuff

Huggin’ Stuff

I’m not a big hugger. Of people, I mean.

But I recently posted about how I hug Christmas Trees! 😮 You’ll find that post here.

Then, I was reminded that I actually hug loadsa stuff!

All things, mind, not so much people…..

Here’s me hugging the 150 years anniversary monument, at King’s Cross Underground station:

And here’s me hugging the R’n’R sign in Dublin:

Finally, for now, here’s me hugging a large garden ornament in Iona:

Sorry, it was a flashless night time pic 😉 Maybe my huggin’ addiction is worse than I thought?

Do you have any weird habits that someone else has pointed out to you?

An Unplanned Trip

An Unplanned Trip

Today, @TheWelshWookie and I find ourselves on the train heading to Coventry, for an unplanned trip.

At least we’re not driving!

It’ll be good to see family an extra time before Christmas 🙂

Mind and be good while we’re away!

The events for 2014 continue to gather momentum in the TartanJogger/WelshWookie household: we’ve signed up for the GB Relay 2014!

The aim is to break the world record for the longest continuous relay, around the coast of Britain. Did someone say record attempt? We’re in!

The British coast has been split into 594 stages, and the run is done continuously, 24 hours a day, during June and July 2014.

@TheWelshWookie and I will be running stage 138, from Duror to Strath of Appin Primary School, which is at the very north of Argyll and Bute. Our stage is on 8th June, at 18:19, and our stage is 12.5K long.

We’re really looking forward to being part of such a brilliant event! For ore information, or to sign up, visit GBrelay.com

Has anyone else bagged a stage yet?

The 5×50 Challenge 2014

The 5×50 Challenge 2014

@TheWelshWookie and I have signed up for the 5×50 challenge 2014!

5x50logo-FINAL

This is our second year of participating: we had such fun last year!

Here’s TheWookie sporting his 5×50 challenge t shirt at the Perth Kilt Run earlier this year.

The challenge is to sign up, make a small (or large) donation, and commit to running, cycling, walking (or doing a class, or equivalent)  5K each day, for 50 days.

The challenge begins on Sunday, 30th March 2014, and since @TheWelshWookie and I get married on 11th April (have I shared that news? I can’t remember!) the challenge will be running right through our wedding weekend.

That should keep us on the running straight-and-narrow!

We’ve set up a team, #a5x50wedding, which was coined by Raymond Wallace on twitter. Raymond is one of the founders of the challenge, who RT’d my tweet when I signed up on Saturday! Thanks for that, hope you don’t mind that I’ve pinched it!

You can read all about this fantastic challenge here.

Anyone can sign up and join in: will you? Fancy joining our team?

Running in a Hoolie

Running in a Hoolie

Afternoon, all, I hope your weekend is off to a brilliant start!

We have more gale force winds forecast for today, and so I’m blogging while I still have power: pray it stays on, please!

@TheWelshWookie and I have braved the wind and the rain, and we have been for a run down the harbour.

It was blowing a hoolie!

I fair enjoyed it, though it was only a short run. The village still looks strangely welcoming in the midst of a storm:

Now, we’re drying off, thawing out and hunkering down for an afternoon of movies, kicking off with Santa Claus: The Movie I think!

Anyone else running through the gales or other poor weather today?

TGIF

It’s Friday the Thirteenth: anyone superstitious out there? If you are, pretend you’re Spanish: they’re fine with Friday the Thirteenth, but not Tuesday the Thirteenth 😮

What have you been up to today? I’ve kicked off a week’s holiday! Woop!

And what better way to spend the day than shopping, eating and drinking with my mum?

We had a great mooch around Glasgow, picking up the final pieces we needed for Christmas. We also had a make up session at Clinique, which was fun! The selfie above is BEFORE the makeover, in case you were wondering!

In keeping with yesterday’s ‘Season’s Eatings’ post, the festive feasting continues. We had tapas for lunch, at Barca in Princes Square: it was delish!

We then had a lil’ refreshment at the Concert Hall before heading home.

I’ve had a lovely day!

Did you all have a good Friday?
