We did it!!!!!!!!!!

I did it, I did the race for life. I even beat last years time. This year I finished in 39 mins. The heat was unbearable! and I ran out of water at the 2 k mark!! But I still enjoyed every second of it. The day is always so emotional and its so sad to see the messages on everyones backs. I ran in memory of my grandads and my cousin who I have sadly lost to cancer, and for my friend from an online forum who died from the dreadful disease.
My mum and her other half came to cheer us on, but missed us running!! They waited to see us but for some reason didnt see us run past them!

I thought you might like to see a couple of photos that my mum kindly took for me.

We looked half decent before the race LOL but that wasnt the case after
This is how we looked after the race
And for those of you that havent sponsored me yet, theres still time to do it online

Just a quick one today to say MY FEET HURT!!!!! I am trying to get fit and lose weight, so on Friday I went to aqua aerobics, I was dreading it but it was such a giggle. I went with my best friend Sarah and it was so tiring. When I got out the pool my legs felt like lead!! Then on Saturday I walked 7 miles!! and today I walked 8 miles!!! And this Sunday I am taking part in the Race for life, another 3 mile walk. I really want to get fit for the summer. The walk today took me an hour and half! and in total since Saturday I have done 32,480 steps!!! I think I am doing well just got to keep going!!

Tropical Wings

Today I visited Tropical Wings in South Woodham Ferrers with Mum and Amber. It was amazing. The butterfly house was so lovely. There are so many butterflies flying around you. I took some really nice photos of them. Here are a few

As well as butterflies they have farm and zoo animals and some great reptiles. They also have some lovely flowers growing in their butterfly house.

I could bore you with loads more but I wont ...yet

I would really recommend a visit to anyone, Amber loved it. They do feeding time with the different animals and kids can help.

Enjoying my time off

The week so far, well i'm enjoying my week off or I was until I lost the receipt for my take that tickets!!!!!!!!!!! I just hope the store we bought them from will give us the tickets without it.

On a more postitive note I have this week managed 4 paper lo's, 2 canvas lo's, 2 cards and i've just started a 3rd canvas. woo hoo, this included my entries done for the
Sugar and Spice design team competition. So now I will just have to wait, although I dont hold out much hope. I have tried for these things before and never got anywhere but it can be fun trying.

I have been playing with my new goodies this week, including my alcohol inks. I LOVE THEM!!! Have also been playing with my glimmer mists. I have had great fun.

Will post some photos ASAP!!!
