Running End To End | 874 Miles In A Year | Five Months In

June 4, 2021 admin 0

Well what a disaster May turned out to be in regards to running the Lands End to John O’Groats challenge. I can’t actually believe how bad this month has been in comparison to our previous ones.  So far we have managed to hit 100 miles or more every single month for the last four months. Come rain or shine, snow or sleet, we have pushed and pushed ourselves to hit the 100 mile mark.  May […]

Running End To End | 874 Miles In A Year | Three Months In

March 31, 2021 admin 1

What a month March has been in terms of running end to end. My mum and I have now crossed the 300 mile mark! We still have a massive 574 miles to go but having already ran 300, we are well ahead of schedule. This in itself feels brilliant as it just gives us that buffer if anything was to put a halt to our running for any reason at any point throughout the year. […]

Running End To End | 874 Miles In A Year | Two months in

February 28, 2021 admin 0

Today is the last day of February and we have just got back from our last run of the month and I am glad to report the running End to End challenge is still moving forward at a good pace. I haven’t quit yet, so that’s something. This month seems to have flown by really quickly and it seems to be turning from the depths of winter to the start of spring. Instead of running […]

Running End To End | 874 Miles in a year | One month in

January 31, 2021 admin 1

If you have been following my blog for a while, or at least since the start of the year, you will know that I signed up to the End to End challenge where you need to run 874 miles, the equivalent of Land’s End to John O Groat’s, in a year. Week 1 was hard  and really made me wonder what I had done but I carried on, with the support of my mum who […]

Running End to End | 874 miles in a year | One week in

January 8, 2021 admin 4

This year I signed up to the End to End challenge. A virtual race where you aim to run a total of 874 miles (1,406 km), the equivalent of running from Land’s End to John O’ Groats, in a year. 874 miles is a hell of a lot. To put it into perspective last year I ran 399 miles, so this year in order to complete the challenge I need to double it and then […]

My experience of running with the Camelbak Zephyr vest

November 26, 2020 admin 1

I started running a couple of months after I had Layla. Mainly to lose some baby weight, tone up and try and get a bit fitter. Little did I know that running was going to become my savoir during a pandemic and then two lock downs. When I first started running I struggled to complete a 3km route we had mapped out. If I am really honest I struggled to get to the 1km mark […]

What do parent bloggers bring to the table?

August 12, 2020 admin 1

I first started blogging about 5 years ago as a hobby. I worked for an online blog where I would review beauty products and although I absolutely loved trying out new make up and face creams I knew in my heart of hearts I was not cut out to be a beauty blogger, not long term with that as my only focus anyway, so when an opportunity to review a long weekend in Scotland came […]

5 Top Tips By A Paediatrician On How To Start Weaning

June 8, 2020 admin 1

Weaning can be a fantastic journey to go on with your little one but it can also be a scary time, especially for first time parents. Add to this the new(ish) hype about baby led weaning (BLW) and it can feel very daunting as you prepare to go from giving your baby nothing but milk to all of a sudden allowing them to chow down on pretty much everything (within reason). Despite Layla being my […]

Am I having a Boy or a Girl?

September 27, 2019 admin 1

Nowadays when ladies get pregnant and find themselves wondering “Am I having a boy or a girl?” it is common practice to find out the gender of the baby before the birth instead of waiting, with those who opt for a surprise at delivery being in the minority.  It is also becoming increasingly common for these that don’t opt to find out the gender to instead find themselves on the receiving end of lots of […]

Should children be taught about sexuality in schools?

March 22, 2019 admin 1

You may have seen recently that there have been a few televised debates asking the question, Should children be taught about sexuality in schools? Which comes after some pretty shocking footage released from schools where parents are protesting about this very thing. There have been calls for LGBTQ lessons to be cancelled and reports of children and certain teachers being personally victimised. The whole thing is abhorrent  and actually quiet shocking in today’s day and […]
