Croatia has been on my holiday wishlist for a long time and I don’t remember exactly what it was that first sparked my interest, but I can thank the location scouts for Game of Thrones for helping me convince Paul that it was the place that we should go for our honeymoon. After initially planning … Continue reading Honeymooning in Croatia – part 1
Oof, long time no see. I'm writing posts but not finishing them, leaving them languishing in the drafts folder until they gather digital dust and I can't remember what the point of them was... Since I last posted, I've been busy! My least favourite state, but this is a busy period of life. We managed … Continue reading Hello, life

The week before last … Continue reading Marathon training – 7 weeks to go and a race recap!
