Where did June go?

Wow, I cannot believe it is the final day of Juneathon and I have managed to write a post (how ever brief) everyday for 30 days! Unfortunately I haven’t logged all the activity in Running Free Online as yet… *sigh*

So today I have been on my feet quite a bit, I was involved in doing a talk for the sixth formers at my old school that I left in *incomprehensible due to a loud noise* – it was great to go back and see some of my old teachers and to try and impress on the sixth formers that it doesn’t matter if you don’t know what you want to do yet.  Look at me, I am old (in the eyes of an 18 year old) and I have gone back to study and I am doing a degree!

Then this evening Helen and I decided to go for gentle walk – far too warm to run, well for me it was!

Walk with Helen - bumped into another friend too and stood still for a  little bit!

I also did my final 30 toe touches, 30 sit and reaches and 30 sit ups/tummy crunches! Yay!!!


Hope everyone else had a successful Juneathon!

Some exercise was done!

So a bit more exercise was actually done for my Juneathon Day 29 contribution!

  • This morning I did about 3 hours of house work – I actually broke a sweat! Cleaning down of sides, washing up, putting away laundry, sweeping floors and vacuuming! I even bleached round the bath!!!
  • There was the walks to and from school for the Pink One
  • I did my 29 toe touches, 29 sit and reaches and 29 sit ups/tummy crunches!


How is everyone else finding the hot weather?

…work in progress…

I have been a bit slack with the exercise for Juneathon Day 28 – but otherwise it’s been a busy day today!

Went to mass this morning where I was co-running the children’s liturgy!

Then home to do a bit of study and then out again to sing with my choir this afternoon!

Then this evening I have been working on my new logo and branding using the amazing talents of my sister!!! I’m soooo excited!!! She’s the best!!!

All to be revealed soon!!!


Need my bed!

It’s been a lovely but busy day! Saw the Minion movie with the family and it was fab. BAAAANNNNAAANNNAAA!!! 🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌

Then visited a few shops afterwards so walking was involved – so that counts for Juneathon Day 27!

Did some OU study when I got home and then my sister and her family came over for the late afternoon/evening! The kids had loads of fun playing with their cousins but have only just now (10:50pm) fallen asleep!

I’m off to bed now too – so walking and a token star jump for today it is then!!! 😊xxx

Short and sweet

Going out to my friend’s house this evening so getting this completed early, and just a short one for Juneathon Day 26.

After yesterday’s grumpy/ranting post (from which I received lots of nice supportive messages and advice – so thank you!) todays post has something happy to share with you – I managed to log back into MapMyRun!!! Yay!!! Woohoo!!!
Didn’t try until this afternoon – so no step count for today, so below I share yesterdays one with you!

It was a run!!!

So for Juneathon Day 23 this evening I went for a pleasant one mile run with Helen – but I was annoyed that I didn’t noticed until afterwards I’d entered  a Walk rather than a Run into MapMyRun!!! Argh!!! Oh well, never mind!

Grumpy face as I put walk instead of run!!! :-P

Prior to my run I did my 23 toe touches, 23 sit and reaches and 23 sit ups/tummy crunches (starting to really feel these in my tummy muscles now!) I also did an additional exercise which involved my kids sitting on my legs like I was a ‘throne’ and then me being an ejector seat – to much hysterical laughter! I only managed a couple of these, my feet started going numb!!! haha!!!

Just the usual!

I don’t know why, but I am absolutely exhausted today – actually put a film on for the Blue One (Despicable Me 2 if you’re interested) after school drop off of the Pink One, while I had a lay down on the sofa! The Blue One got me his dinosaur pillow pet to cuddle and sat with me bless him and I think I did doze for about 30 mins!

So today’s Juneathon contributions for Day 22 were quite lack lustre and not very enthusiastic! Sorry!

Bet you can’t guess what I did… ok bet you can.. I did 22 toe touches, 22 sit and reaches, 22 sit ups/tummy crunches! I also cleared out the shelf of my wardrobe, and with the amount of clothing I own, this definitely constitutes exercise!!!

Minimum Requirements

Another busy day and still feeling exhausted from all the running around yesterday my Juneathon Day 21 contribution is 21 toe touches, 21 sit and reaches and 21 sit ups/tummy crunches! This was such a laugh when I started with one of each – now the laugh is on me!!! Haha!!! 😜

In other news that may amuse – my Pink One is doing very well at her gymnastics (and the teacher also said she was a nice little girl too!) – so my mum and dad treated her to a leotard and leggings and mummy and daddy got her a second leotard.

My little gymnast (and good girlie)!

Sooooo tired

Specific exercise for Juneathon Day 20 was  20 toe touches, 20 sit and reaches, 20 sit ups/tummy crunches!


In the role of auntie/mummy I want over to my sister’s for a celebratory mass marking my niece’s first holy communion which started at 10am – so a lovely early start for a Saturday morning.
Then to my niece’s school, where they had a party – I stared longingly at the cupcakes (stupid IBS – with it’s wheat/dairy intolerances).
Then back to my sister’s – where I helped her for a bit, kneaded some modelling chocolate icing.
After which I drove home – ate some lunch – gathered some bits as the Pink One had a party to attend, and they were currently round nanny and granddad D’s with their daddy.  So I headed to nanny and granddad D’s house.
From there, we went to the kid’s auntie’s house, where, with the help of nanny and granddad D, released some fish into the pond.
This point I took the Pink One, and we stopped off on the high street – went to the Card Factory (no prizes for guessing why!) and then a quick visit to the dance shop where I got the Pink One her very first leotard for gymnastics – she was thrilled!
Back into the car and drive to the party the Pink One was attending at a local soft play.  When that finished, I decided to drive over to my mum and dad’s, nanny and granddad P’s so we could drop off his Father’s Day Card.  The Pink One thought this was great, and modelled her new leotards for them.
Then a drive back to nanny and granddad D’s to collect the Hubby and the Blue One, and have some dinner.  Finally home where the Blue One sat in his new big boy car seat for the ride home for the first time!!!

Car seat king!
Car seat king!

I am completely exhausted, so now it’s time to take my tired body to bed!!!

Could just about see straight to write this…
Good night all!!!
