I did it!

I am so unbelievably shocked and proud of myself, I never in a million years thought I would a) do anything like this and b) Do it as fast as I did…

This morning I ran the City to Surf 4km run with the Mr Person and Master No. 2. My training consisted of three runs over the past couple of weeks on the gym treadmill, the best time I achieved on the treadmill was about 25 mins. Today I crossed the line at a fraction over 20 minutes.

Yay for me!

Despite the fact I was sure I was having a heart attack at the finish line, I actually survived and I now feel fantastic for it.

Mr Person did really well, a shade over 16 mins, so he too is quite happy. Master No.2 did an impressive 17mins, a great effort for a ten year old!

Right, we're off to the pub…

A Dating Agency for Socks

Do you have one in your home?
My dressing table stool is the venue where all hip single socks mingle these days, it used to be that the telephone table in the living room was the hot spot in town, but now that place is just sooo 2009. Recently, any sock who is any sock heads to the dressing table stool in the hope of meeting their true 'Sole Mate'.

How these couples end up apart in the first place is a mystery, it just seems that a whole lot of agitation occurs in the old Fisher & Paykel and one ends up running out on the other or worse, getting mixed up with someone else's partner.

As they say though, absence makes the heart grow fonder, and usually, after a bit of time to think and a few rejections from other seemingly like minded but not quite compatible partners, these lone fellows end up finding their way back to their perfect match.

Today, at the Sock Dating Agency, we witnessed such a reunion take place… Oh how we wept with joy….

Here's to all you lucky socks out there who remain happily paired up. x

Spring has sprung in Perth!

And look what else has started to pop up in my garden…

Yep, for the first time in my life, I made some bulbs turn into pretty flowers!

I cannot wait to see what more lovely blooms will start to appear.

Happy early spring everyone! x

I'm Baaaaack!

I have been somewhat distracted since our holiday to Bali last month and have some serious Blogland catching up to do!

Reason for the distraction? I am now Engaged! Yay!
Mr Person popped the big Q on our first night in Ubud, all very spontaneous, a surprise to both of us really, but it was the perfect moment and we are both over the moon.

So now there is a wedding to plan and many wedding blogs to visit! But I will try to keep up with the posts too. x
