Cleanin’, Eatin’, Readin’

Cleanin’, Eatin’, Readin’

That just about sums up my Saturday!

@TheWelshWookie and I got stuck in to domestic duties this morning, with a spring clean of the living room and bathroom. I’m pleased to report that I have sparking surfaces, and TheWookie managed, at long last, to rid the carpet of the large wax stain caused by a slight candle meltdown incident a while back 😉

We were finished in time to enjoy some lunch before the beginning of the Six Nations rugby. I had some vegetable biryani: delish!

As I’m sure you can tell by his twitter handle, @TheWelshWookie feels rather strongly about Welsh rugby 😉 So, while he was glued to the TV, I half watched, and spent the afternoon catching up on the past couple of month’s Women’s Running and Women’s Health magazines. I had already had a quick scan through these, but it’s lovely to have time to sit, mug of tea in hand, and really read them.

I also had a slice of my grandma’s Jock’s Loaf:

It is amazing!

There’s a couple of interesting articles in them, I thought I’d share:

Tonight, we’re having some lovely salmon for dinner, and perhaps a glass of vino. Well, a girl’s got to fortify herself to finish the spring cleaning: tomorrow, it’s the turn of the bedrooms 😉

When was the last time you had some quiet reading time? What did you read?

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?
