Today I am feeling quite under the weather and I was going to just do a ‘Wordless Wednesday’ post and throw a load of pics up but you know me…even my ‘Wordless Wednesday’ posts are not wordless so I decided that making an effort would probably make me feel better.
First of all, although I did actually do stuff this month, none of it included running or exercise of any description. My bones have been quite painful over the last few weeks and I do have an appointment in early November for a follow-up on the Vitamin D deficiency thing but I plan to try to run a bit next month after I have spoken to my GP.
At the start of October I had to go into town and I finally got to see Greg Rutherford’s gold post boxes. Greg won gold for the men’s long jump. I was really excited when I saw them even though London 2012 feels like it was a long time ago. They brought back some really happy memories of the Summer and London 2012.
Earlier in the month it was the second anniversary of Billie-Jane’s passing and I travelled by train to spend a couple of days with my brother, Paul and Dad. We laid flowers at Billie’s head stone and just spent a little quality time together. Steve wasn’t able to come with me this time and as we are never usually apart, I missed him like mad but I came home feeling that I healed a little bit.
Last weekend Steve, myself and the children went to Northampton to visit Steve’s Mum and Brother, go to the fair and have dinner. We had a lovely afternoon/evening despite the weather being very wet.
The fair was awesome. Steve and the kids went on various rides. Personally I don’t like fair rides and I don’t really find amusement parks very amusing but I do love to see my family enjoying themselves, for me this is fun.
I opted for something a little more sedate…
The children went on the Waltzers twice. The last time I went on one of these it made me vomit and the ten-year old I was supposed to be looking after ended up looking after me. The lasers on it were pretty impressive though…
After the fair, the best bit…Pizza Hut 🙂
I did have salad too 🙂
Last week, my Youngest brother Mat completed his training and is now a Constable in the Queensland Police Service. Obviously I couldn’t go to Australia to watch his passing out parade but I did get to see a video of it on YouTube. I am so proud of him. Here he is on the day of the parade with his girlfriend, Erin…
As today is Halloween, Steve and I carved pumpkins with the kids. This is my favourite time of year and love carving the pumpkins.
Happy Halloween Everyone!
