Having supported my 7 good friends as they trained and ran the marathon in aid of St. Catherine’s Hospice in Crawley, I wanted to do something too to raise money to help beat cancer and help eradicate this vile disease forever.
One of my 101 challenges was to take part in the Race for Life, but due to lack of confidence in my ability to even walk the 5k course I thought that I would leave this challenge until next year.
Don’t get me wrong, I like vegetarian food, I like it a lot. I just like meat as well, I actually admire vegetarians for their standpoint, whether their reasons are because of the animals, health or because they don’t like the taste. I know that I could not be a vegetarian. But I wondered whether I could do it for a week…
So have you been to a festival? I was a bit of a late starter and it wasn’t until I was in was my forties that started going to the Isle of Wight festival each June.
This year was my fifth year – am I rock chick? Certainly not!
I am not even a big music fan, some of the other girls laugh at me and my lack of knowledge about the music scene – but I don’t care! It is all about the company.

When I first put together my list of 101 things to do in a 1001 days, someone suggested that I should put ‘Meet someone I really admire’ as one of my challenges. I didn’t, because, well, how does an average gal like me do that sort of thing?
Half way throught the time and only 30% of the tasks are completed. That sounds very depressing really but it is not all doom and gloom, because some tasks are well in hand and others – well, there is no way I think they are possible, so I am not going to beat myself up about it.
When we bought our house it had a big garden attached. I mean much bigger than I can cope with!
I am terrified of it, the previous owners had kept it beautifully and everywhere we have lived has had a tiny garden or no garden at all. I tell a lie, the very first house we had had one and we killed everything in it.
So why buy a house with a decent garden? Well it seemed a good idea at the time.
He was hiding a terrible secret . . .
Grace’s new husband Adam seems like the perfect package. Good looking, great job, completely charming – almost too good to be true . . .
So when Adam suddenly disappears from Grace’s life, she is left bewildered and heartbroken. And with a lot of unanswered questions.
As she tries desperately to find him, Grace opens a Pandora’s Box of secrets and lies – and starts to learn that Adam wasn’t so perfect after all.
What shameful secrets was her husband hiding? Is Grace in danger? And can she survive the truth? However terrible it may be . . .
We have had a LOVELY half term. Usually we are rushing around here and there and are really busy but as our lives, my theatre, hubby’s work and children’s activities etc are manic at the moment. We took the time to sit back, relax and appreciate a little time off.
It was JUST what we needed
We have had a crazy couple of weeks! First our amazing daughter got confirmed and then our friend’s daughter did too. Endless rounds of houseguests, catering and running around like mad things – what fun!
