Yesterday was my most favourite niece's 1st Birthday and to celebrate we made the trip to Kent to spend the day with her. Firstly, let me just say that since the birth of Grace my sister has gone slightly mad. And considering she is once again pregnant things are only going to get worse. On arrival we were
forced given our own hand-made party hat to wear.
Jill had gone all out to make sure we had a great day: loads of food; birthday decorations; home-made cake; AND party games. Although I was slightly disappointed not to have won pass-the-parcel, amazingly Grace won it, what are the chances of that? Grace got some lovely presents, including her first doll named 'Baby Gracie' which she was very intrigued by. We all had a great day….
This morning the plan was to get very muddy with a run on the trails of Bourne Woods.
I had the iPhone for some pictures and had the Zombies, Run! app on the go. I had already decided on a pretty gentle run this morning and once I spotted how muddy the trails were a gentle run was the only option.
Pretty much covered most of the trails including the hilly ones, did loads of slipping and sliding, which actually reminded me of this ice-skating outing….
Billy Boy was with me this morning, so after about 4 miles we headed to the ponds so he could cool down and clean himself off a bit.
Overall a good run around the woods, loads of people out enjoying the morning, and I did indeed finish very muddy….
Same again tomorrow? Yes please!

…”slightly mad…” cheek of it!! Glad you had a fun time at Baby Grace’s party – thanks for joining us. Good to see the training for the Zombie run is going well…
Happy belated birthday to Grace, I love her name 🙂
I`m not sure I missed it but how`s the unicycling going?
I would not have run there. I`d be way too afraid to never be able to clean my shoes again.
Thanks for your birthday wishes to Grace!
Phil….like your new Gravatar…. 🙂
