Like DL I (almost) missed GBBO. Got back from a beautiful 2 days in Anglesey, had tea, settled down, remembered how to turn TV on, ... it was near the end! Oh no! Switch off quickly then on to catch up. I didn't think it was on till 9!
Now I'm getting ready to go away again! Shrewsbury Folk Festival this weekend and we are going to do the Parkrun as well - honest!
Happy birthday Yums! Hope the weekend went well. did you need the bike and cossie? Or was it like my friend who had to take wellies, swimming kit and a towel, and ended up being taken to see a musical in Manchester? (I'd have preferred something with wellies personally ...)
DL This one Similar to our old Vango. I've always like the look of Outwells. We are off to test it for a couple of nights on Anglesey and do a bit of the coast path. I did think, almost as it was happening, "This is a DL type of holiday story!"
The first batch of photos from Orkney are here if you are interested. I don't think they really do it justice though.
Becks, don't worry. You are training for it which is more than some people do! A week or two off won't make a huge difference, and once you have got to 10 you'll be fine for the half. Honest.
We did the Parkrun while it was still fine (actually not too bad still, but blustery!), then had brunch as planned! It took me 2 laps (out of 3) to loosen up but the last lap felt great. I have quite stiff ankles atm, and I'm not sure why. We walked every day, but not especially far or hard.
