This Time Next Week…

My word, I'm excited. And nervous. But mainly excited. This time next week, I'll have finished* the Great North Run. It feels a little bit strange, because we've been building up to this for months and months. I started training way back in January, just little runs in the evenings after work to get used...

York 10K

Well, I did it! My official time was 1 hour and 17 seconds. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed with my time. I know I can, and I have, run the same distance faster before, and I really wanted to run under an hour in this race. But it wasn't meant to be.... Continue Reading →

I’m Not a Jinx

What I've been up to Well, it's been nearly 4 weeks since I last blogged, so there's 4 weeks of life to fill you in on. It's actually been a bit of a mixed time. On the 14th of July, it was a year since Nan died. That whole week brought back memories of being... Continue Reading →

Dolce Far Niente

Hello there! The Fundraising Saint Michael's Hospice very kindly featured me on their Facebook page on Friday. If you found this blog through that, hello and welcome. The total now stands at £935 which is super good. Only £65 to £1000! I'm going to edit the target and page a bit before the York 10K,... Continue Reading →

Day 28: Wild is the Wind

Today I'm wearing:  The Dress Black pencil skirt from Zara Green shirt from Gap. My brogues and Caitlin necklace which seem to be some sort of uniform for me. Aside from the Dress, obviously. By heck, I'm in a funny mood this evening. I feel like a tropical breeze; warm but changeable. I know why,... Continue Reading →

Day 26: I Jiggle Therefore I am

  Today I'm wearing:  The Dress. Silk skirt from Gap that I've had since I was about 15, I think. Cardigan to protect against inclement weather. My Caitlin necklace which I seem to be wearing an awful lot. Brogues because they are comfortable and keep my feet dry. I am aware that is the general... Continue Reading →

Day 17: It’s Definitely my Birthday Today!

Today I'm wearing:  The Dress. Black long-sleeved t-shirt underneath because it was really chilly today and I am foolishly wearing a short-sleeved dress. Tights on tights because it's too cold for just one pair. Hoodie underneath jacket because  I tried to wear as many clothes as possible today to keep out that creeping Yorkshire chill....

One Dress One Month IV

Hello there, reader. It's fast approaching May, and that means only one thing: it's nearly time for One Dress One Month IV! I can't believe that this will be the fourth year I've spent a month of my life wearing essentially the same clothes every day. Actually I can believe it because I quite like doing...

Day 31: this is the end

Today I'm wearing:  The Dress for the last time; leggings on tights; long-sleeved black t-shirt because there was a wee nip in the air at 6am; DMs just because. The last day! Tomorrow I can wear whatever I want and not write about it! I'll probably feel little, lost and alone when I go to... Continue Reading →
