A month of strength training

Yesterday I wrote a post about how my step-daughter and I completed the Cardiff Half Marathon on the 7th of this month. You can read that post by clicking here. As many of my readers know I didn’t really train properly for the Cardiff Half Marathon due to injury. As such I really didn’t enjoy running it this year as much as I had the previous year.

Sienna Strawberry and the ice palace ballet’ First off, I love the illustrations in this book. Especially the ballerinas as they actually look like something I could make for our girls at home with some pipe cleaners and other bits and pieces! Both M and R enjoyed this book. I think because the book is quite small it was easy for our girls to hold and they both enjoyed looking at the pictures whilst… [Read More]
