Tonight, I went with my sis and two of my nephews to see Fantasia, with a full orchestra.
It was awesome!
Roll on the wedding of the year tomorrow!

Boxing Day

Boxing Day

Have you had a relaxing Boxing Day, or was yours filled with sales shopping?

Mine was lovely and quiet: we went for a lovely walk this morning, and have spent the day pottering and packing for my brother and soon-to-be-sister-in-law’s wedding on Saturday. I can’t wait!

We’ve had another day of eating well: @TheWelshWookie made soup and chilli bread, which was just what we needed after our walk!

Tonight, we may have another lil’ refreshment, maybe these beauties:

Do you have plans today? Anyone having to work tomorrow?

A Christmas Day Run

A Christmas Day Run

Merry Christmas!

This morning, @TheWelshWookie and I have been for a run around the harbour. Santa brought me a new Ron Hill Vizion top and my brother in law and sister in law gave us new Ron Hill gloves and beanies, so I had lots of new gear to try out!

We had a good run: it was cold, and very quiet. There were hailstones as we walked home, too!

We’re now home, opening presents and feeling very lucky and spoiled while tucking into our scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and champagne.

For dinner, we’re having rib eye and proper chips instead of turkey. Yum!

My plan for the rest of the day is to watch Doctor Who, Downton Abbey and other festive treats, wearing my onesie, my new jammies and my new slippers 🙂

I hope you all have a lovely day planned: was Santa good to you? Did you run today?

The Night Before Christmas

The Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, and all through the house…..

…..the excitement is building!

I’ve been munching on sprouts: my fave! 🙂

I wish you all a peaceful, fun and relaxing Christmas: unless you are running, then I wish you good weather and loads of good food!

I hope Santa brings you what you need this year 😀

No running for us tonight: it’s wild out there again! But @TheWelshWookie and I do need to agree the distance we are going to run on Christmas Day.
Any suggestions? Are you planning a run for tomorrow or Wednesday?

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?

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?
