What a week it’s been. Or as one of my MBA friends would say; “it’s been a time”. Too right. Last Sunday seems an age ago, yet it has also flown by so fast. Last Monday Covid restrictions were eased a little, and we were finally allowed to have 6 people indoors, and 30 people… Continue reading So much to do, so little time…seeing 2am a little too often and a trip to Lords Cricket Ground

Brian’s Big Day Out…

What a crew 😍 Tomorrow marks the one month anniversary of our dear friend, Brian. It’s so weird to think that I haven’t used my foot (or leg, for that matter) in four weeks now; and it’s really starting to show. My right leg is looking so skinny minnie compared to my left!

Distinction…and proud!

How is it February already? Boss Women take on EP and a 100km cycling week…

A rare sunny day overlooking our friends 👻 I think I prefaced last weeks blog with “this is going to be a long one” (or if I didn’t, I meant to...)
