Mother’s Day

When asked what I wanted to do today I informed the family I would like to go for a walk if the weather was nice. We awoke to clear blue skies, so after much pouring over maps, thumbing through walk books we opted for a local walk along the coast taking in a part of the south coast path we had yet to do. Hubby pointed out the ascent on the route would almost be 500 ft,  I assured him this would be fine as long as we did not tell madam.

The views were spectacular

Madam puffed her way up the hills, asking me if childbirth was more painful?! I assured it was! At one point I turned around, she was nowhere in sight then slowly she started to appear by bit

I love playing this slide show it can make her go backwards and disappear, if only it was that easy to do in person!

These lambs were also enjoying their day and giving their mum some peace and quiet.


Lunch was eaten outside at the Sea Shanty in Branscombe, Lovely to gaze out at this, shimmering sea.


and consume a well-earned Cornish Pasty and chips. Then we spent some time lying on the beach, listening to the sea and basking in the sun, whilst Madam acted like a beaver and built a dam.


We covered 6 miles in all and I really enjoyed my day, even though it did not quite meet my criteria of doing *** all.

On return to the car we discovered that some low life ******* had decided to break in to it by making a hole in the car door near the lock. They took nothing as there was nothing to take, they did not fancy my Robbie Williams Cd’s so clearly low lifes without taste! Really took the edge off a lovely day out.

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    Such a shame they put a dampener on your day. The pictures are lovely and it sounds like you had a perfect mothers day otherwise.

    Sounds perfect,,,,,,,except car! Happy Mother’s Day xxxxxx

  3. What a pain! Sorry to hear about the last bit. Although the rest sounds lovely.

    I remember a chap in Devon used to have his land rover stolen and joy-ridden to various places on the moor. Nothing stolen, but door damaged.
    Happened so regularly that he found it cheaper in the end to just leave it unlocked.

  4. That’s the kind of day I love!

  5. Not liking the car bit…………but what beautiful scenery. So pretty! Probably worth venturing out of the house for?

    Oh, a perfect Mother’s Day! Well, apart from the last bit. Car break ins are such a problem around here that I’ve taken to watching out for tell tale pools of car glass in scenic locations. Glad, at least, you didn’t have your car window broken.

    i once left our crappy subaru (that I hated and wanted to have stolen) at newark airport, with $10 and the keys on the seat, the doors unlocked and went on a 5 day business trip. the car was still there, unscathed, when i returned. it never pays to try to figure out theives.

  8. Looks like a beautiful and wonderful day until the jerk at the end. I’m glad you had an almost perfect day! 🙂
