The Graham Homes Memorial Motorcycle Ride

Unless you are very new to Splodz Blogz you will know all about the Graham Homes Memorial Ride. I didn’t post much about on it here because I set up a special blog to document the challenge properly, but I realise that it has been remiss of me not to share any of my thoughts

Some Goals and Challenges for 2014

Now that 2014 is well under way I thought it was about time that I gave some real thought to what my goals for the year should be. The reason I am doing this now is because I have been incredibly inspired by a few people I follow on twitter. Inspired to consider what my

Cycling LEJOG in the Spare Room

Earlier in the week I read an article over on the Berghaus website written by The Next Challenge, encouraging people to have a micro adventure in January. The three suggestions were swim the channel, climb Everest or cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats. Cycle LEJOG you say? Hmmm. I tweeted the article and then pretty much instantly

You Don’t Get to Heaven on Your Good Intentions

Ahhhh, New Year’s Day. The one day of the year when we are all filled with anticipation; we are overflowing with good intentions. I don’t know whether you have made any resolutions, or set goals, or written a list of things you’d like to do this year. Even if you haven’t promised yourself something because

My 2013 – A Year in a Post

I thought it would be remiss of me to end 2013 without some sort of review post looking back over the year. It’s been a good one, really, with lots of things going on. Here are some of my memories… Travel and Adventure Back in January LincsGeek and I discovered Ruka in Finland as an

Sleep Well Chocolate Bunny x

I am very sad to post that our gorgeous little Chocolate died this morning.  At six-and-a-half she was considered old but not in my eyes. Sleep well little bunny. Your cuddles and escapades will be greatly missed.

It’s Nearly the New Year!

Have you started thinking about next year yet? I know some of you have because I’ve already read a number of New Year themed blog posts that I have found interesting and inspiring. I also know some of you have rather fabulous plans and expectations for the coming year. So what are your plans? Your

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 30 > The End

After such a good day out yesterday and a lovely evening relaxing, as soon as my sister and her husband left last night I headed to bed in an attempt to get rid of whatever illness it was knocking at my door. So I didn’t get this BEDN post done on the last day of

#BEDN 29 > All I Want for Christmas

I had a big wish list type post in my head for today’s #BEDN topic – I was going to do a “luxury gift ideas” mood board that included all sorts of expensive I-can-dream kind of items. I started by searching for images of my chosen items… first up, an iconic pair of Christian Louboutin

#BEDN 28 > The Great Outdoors

Any regular Splodz Blogz reader knows that as much as I like to curl up on the sofa and watch back to back episodes of some random American television show, I also love to get outdoors and enjoy the Great British countryside to get some fresh air and exercise. It’s a topic that features a

#BEDN 27 > Yes Moments – Welcome to Wherever You Are

I’ve shared this song on Splodz Blogz before, but thought it was perfect for today’s BEDN topic – yes moments (and I simply can’t resist a bit of Bon Jovi!). Yes it’s hard to see sometimes, but each of us need to be sure that where we are and what we are doing is just
