Monday Motivation 

  Monday Motivation 

Hello! How has your week been? The weather here has been stunning, if a little breezy at times. But, we’ve made the most of it, getting some runs and walks in as part of our 5×50 Challenge. In case you don’t follow me on social media, here’s the evidence:


 

  Tonight, we had a brilliant PiYo class, learning the basics of a new round. There are some moves that we haven’t done before, and it’s really challenging some muscles- which is great! It also reminded me of this, which I had pinned a while ago: 

 Whether the weather lasts or not, I’ll be getting on with day 31 of 5×50; bring it on!

As promised, here are some pics from last week’s holiday. I hope you enjoy them.

Here’s Cardiff Castle: 

    
 The Millennium Stadium:  

    
 Cardiff’s Docks: 

    
 And the Dr Who Experience- choosing which pics to share was difficult! 

    
   
I even hugged a Lego Dalek 😉 

 I’d highly recommend a visit!

The Blip is Back

The Blip is Back

Way back before TartanJogger.com was born, I had a Blipfoto account.

It lasted 12 days.

And, if I’m honest, that’s about how long I thought the blog might last. How wrong I was, eh?

I’ve decided that I’ve nothing better to do with my time I’d give Blipping another go.

For those not familiar, Blipfoto is an online photo journal, a bit like a blog, where you can record a picture and a few notes every day. Now, I know I’m not likely to post every day, but there may, perhaps, be some times when I think a picture needs shared, with a few more words than is right for Instagram!

If you’re interested, have a wee peek at by Blipfoto page.

Let’s see how long this lasts, eh? 😉

The Garden

The Garden

While I was out running, in the rain, on Sunday, I was admiring the fields full of bluebells and the primula that were blooming by the side of the road.
@TheWelshWookie and I had decided to run the Glen road in reverse: and it turned out to be tougher than expected! So it was good to be distracted by the beautiful plants and the lambs gambolling in the fields.
When we got back, I realised that our own garden is getting to that point in Spring where the colours are beginning to pop and burst out all over. The fushia, clematis and roses aren’t yet out- they’ll give some late summer and autumn colour. But the peonies and azalea are showing off their style!
Wanna see?

I’ve been clearing out my phone of the hundreds of pics I’ve had on there since Christmas, and thought I’d share some belated Christmas crackers with you.

I hope you like!

Is it nearly Christmas yet? 😉

Ok, so I’ve eaten well over the past couple of weeks. Very well, actually.

A Winter Wedding

A Winter Wedding

Well, we have had a FAB-U-LOUS weekend at Joe and Stacey’s wedding. The bride was stunning, the groom was dapper; the best man impressed with his organisation and speech, and the bridesmaids were gorgeous.

I didn’t run, but I danced the night away!

Would you like to see a couple of pics?

This morning, @TheWelshWookie and I were up early, and spent a couple of hours in the pool, which was great! 🙂

Next, we’re off to gatecrash the honeymoon at Portavadie this week. We are going for the Hogmanay dinner dance, and for a few days to celebrate the new year: trainers are packed for this trip!

Do you have any Hogmanay and New Year festivities planned?
