Long bank holiday/Easter weekend

Snuggled in bed, catch up tv on and a cup of tea on my bedside table…perfect end to a busy day back at work. The morning alarm wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be, and I’m still buzzing from the weekend, so I thought I’d let you know what I got up to!

The weekend started off with fabulous weather and a really lovely catch up with my uncle in Winchester. A long walk, chatting and lunch, was just what we needed.

On Saturday came the rain and a spontaneous coffee/catch up with a friend, then my favorite part of the weekend…a 5k color run!
I’m a passionate runner, and have been for the past 2 years. I started off by downloading the ‘Couch to 5K’ app on my phone, after being inspired by a girl I follow on Twitter. Ever since I have built up miles, and speed, which I’m quite proud of myself for, and continue to set goals. Sorry, getting side tracked, back to the color run…now the name says it all. “Who would want paint thrown at them, though?” my mum asked…well, its not actually paint, its colored cornstarch…cool, right?! Yeah, I had no idea either! We started off with a warm up and throwing packets of ‘paint’ at each other, then we were off! I went in wanting to beat my personal best, and that is what I did. I am really proud of myself for accomplishing it but most of all, I had fun doing it. All in all it was a brilliant event to raise money for a good cause and very well planned/organized, despite the gail force winds, hail, rain and thunderstorm that set upon us mid run!

The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing, sleeping, another coffee date with a friend and catching up with my parents and family! Alongside a few Easter eggs, of course! Perfect way, to a perfect bank holiday/Easter weekend!
I hope you all had a fabulous one too. Now for some shut eye, before a new day begins.

Sweet dreams,
