The Sights You See!

The Sights You See!

After days of wall-to-wall sunshine, I awoke this morning to the Return of The Rain. Boo.


But, the flowers got a good water. Hurrah!

And, as I was driving into work this morning, bleary eyed and thinking about my holiday starting at the end of this week, I was startled by an unexpected sight! No, not more cows on the beach 😉 but something you certainly don’t see every day.

I saw a lady walking down the street, smartly dressed, and looking like she was on her way to work. Nothing odd about that, you say?



But, she was wearing one of these:


Seriously, she really was!

I can only assume that she had misplaced her brolly during the recent spell of dry weather!

Certainly not a sight I expected to see at 8am, but it made me laugh 😀

Have you seen any strange sights while out ‘n’ about recently?

Happy Friday all! Hope you all have a busy weekend, with lots of running planned 🙂

I hope you’ve survived today, being Friday the 13th, and a full moon. Spooky!


I stumbled across this on the satire site Waterford Whispers News and it really made me laugh. I hope you enjoy it for what it is, no offence is intended!

@TheWelshWookie and I are settling down with a Cava to watch Spain v The Netherlands.

What are your plans for tonight? Do you ever run holding hands with anyone? 😉

Today is Blue Monday in the UK, the day when British folks feel most depressed and down.

Not me! I’ve had a day of productivity and progress, so I’m thinking positively!

I thought I’d share a wee photo I took on my run yesterday. Don’t get too excited: it’s a picture of a puddle!

Now, if you squint a bit, don’t you think it looks a little like a map of Britain?


Happy Monday, all!

I found this on Sport Motivation’s Facebook Page, and it really made me laugh out loud.

No offence, folks, but…..


Happy Friday all! Hope you all have a busy weekend, with lots of running (and caber tossing) planned!
