At the very tail end of my 30s (the last month to be exact)...I am a uni student again. I am appreciating it all so much more now my time on my own is so hard won and negotiated. I did a uni course when I was about 22 and the woman who were the 'mums' were from a diffe...

So my triathlon training has been cut short after getting flu and then a chesty bronchi cough which is still hanging with me over 4 weeks later. I am out of breath going up the stairs so have pulled out of the Crawley triathlon in September but hope to start again once...

It is mostly impossible to look after children and write at the same time but very occasionally an opportunity presents itself- the soft play centre!!

I've signed up for a triathlon yet I have no bike, haven't swam properly for 25 years and can't run for more than 60 seconds (and that only due to starting from couch to 5k NHS programme!). What I have learnt in the last two weeks is that goggles have come on AMAZINGLY...

The sun is out after a few days of snow, rain, sleet and freeeezzzinnng-ness!! I actually quite like the dreary days but even I am appreciating the sun and blue sky today. Buds are budding and I can even see some yellow of daffodils coming out in my garden- it's a surp...
