I need to learn to balance..


Well I've been a bit rubbish at updating my blog lately, but I have been a busy bee.. I promise! I thought I would fill you in on what's been going on.

A few months ago I decided to sign up to do the Lichfield 10k. I did this in aid of The Alzheimer's Society as my Gran was diagnosed with the disease 3 years ago and it's gradually getting worse. As I felt quite helpless I thought one way I could help was to do what I know, lace up my running shoes and do a sponsored 10k run! I hoped to raise as much money as possible to help both research into the illness and to help those suffering from it. I completed the race yesterday in a PB of 1 hour 4 mins and 1 second. And I raised, with the help of many generous people £359.88. I'm soooo pleased and feel we may have helped just a little bit!

A few weeks ago I won a competition over on the lovely Joanna Briggs Photography Blog, to have a photo shoot. Mocha and I went back up to Lichfield and went out on location with Jo and she took some really gorgeous pictures. She really is wonderful as Mocha and I just giggled like school children the whole day and she managed to capture some really lovely moments. If you are thinking about having a photo shoot for yourself or with your family I couldn't recommend Jo enough she is sooo lovely and really makes you feel comfortable and at ease! Below are just a few of the photo's she took on the day. To find out more about Joanna and her beautiful work click here.

Now that I don't have the 10k to concentrate on anymore, I am going to get back into designing and blogging more often. Although I am thinking of signing up to a couple more 10k's this year and a triathlon next year, I think I just need to work on balance and not do training or designing but working both equally into my time!
Anywhoo, sorry for such a long post,
see you soon
