On Failing to Break a World Record

One of those slightly more unusual things that has been sat on my bucket list for several years is to hold a Guiness World Record. I’ve never had any clue what record it might be, but in my head I have images of Roy Castle and a television studio and an audience cheering and this song… Sorry for

Race for Life and my new Brooks Trainers

On Sunday I joined with thousands of other women from the area to take part in the Lincoln Race for Life at the Showground. I’d signed up earlier in the year to take part in the 10km fundraising event to do my bit for Cancer Research UK and also to encourage myself to go out

Photo Walk: Steep Hill, Lincoln

After reading this post over on Skybiker’s blog earlier, I decided a lunchtime walk was in order. Just a short walk to get some fresh air in the middle of the day – with my phone in hand of course to get some snaps of pretty things along the way. I was only out for half an

Inducted into the Box

If you’ve been following me on twitter you’ll know that I have taken the plunge and I am now a fully inducted member of my local CrossFit box, CrossFit Witham in Lincoln. After all the encouragement I received following my blog post about my taster session, I have joined for one month to give me

Calling all Lincolnshire Musicians – Performance and World Record Attempt!

Ever fancied playing a piece of music with 1,500 people? SoundLincs, who are celebrating their 15th birthday this year, are arranging the opportunity to do just that – the B15 project are looking for enthusiastic musicians and singers of all ages, traditions, interests and abilities to take part in a unique record breaking event. B15 is

Trying CrossFit

I think I’ve just about got over it now. On Sunday and Monday, and even Tuesday, the muscles down the inside of my thighs, across my stomach and chest, and under my arms especially. This made standing up and sitting down a bit on the painful side, and I’m not sure I did a very

My Week in Photos 16 to 22 December 2013

We had our office Christmas meal this week – I had a really good time at The Castle Hotel in Lincoln, the food was good and we laughed alot! This was my place setting. It’s rather warm for the time of year so on my last day at work I had my last Eskimoos milkshake

My Week in Photos 2 to 8 Dec 2013

2 to 8 December 2013 The sky over Lincoln looked as ominous as the wind felt on Thursday. This photo just doesn’t show how rough the Brayford was – I wouldn’t have wanted to be on a boat that day! It was Lincoln Christmas Market this weekend – the weather was rather changeable over the

My Week in Photos 25 Nov to 1 Dec 2013

I’ve brought My Week in Photos back after a break while I took part in the BEDN project. 25 November to 1 December 2013 Possibly the best graze box snack ever to be included… this is “jam doughnut”. The cool blues of Brayford Pool, Lincoln, in winter. I headed over to Donna Nook on Friday

#BEDN 19 > Newsflash – Found Cash

Today BEDN bloggers are being encouraged to write about something that’s in the news.  I was going to address my thoughts on this scary clown that has been reported around Lincoln (and other towns), stepping out in front of cars and starring into car windows. I was going to tell you all how much I

#BEDN 12 > Your Hometown – Lincoln

“Where are you from” has been a bit of a difficult question for me to answer in the past. Due to my mum and dad’s work, I lived in several different towns before I was 17 – giving me a mixed British accent and meaning that actually I didn’t have an answer to that question.
