Something Different

When I was out running last Sunday I saw an open garden advertised, not something I usually go for but I was intrigued, (read nosey) more by the house and its location.

Having slaved over the lap top since 6 a.m I was able to take some time off this afternoon to attend this event. Obviously I needed to multi task and combine this outing with some Juneathon activity. Time to see if the bike would fit in the car. I do not have a big car so this was going to be tricky, but removal of front wheel (gotta love quick release wheels) and hey presto it fit fine! Yay, now I can go further afield on my bike without hubby. Double yay.

The house was to die for, the land it was built on was purchased by the owners in 2000 previously was a mussel purification sight. It has amazing views over the estuary, their first job had been to create some sea defence-not surprisingly.

I could look at this all day and I bet even from the house it is spectacular,  in the winter with a nice glass of something warming in front of a roaring fire.

The garden to be honest I thought was disappointing, having said that though it is my kind of garden, wild flowers, grasses and weeds.

Glad I went and blackened my nose, escaped the lap top for an afternoon and cycled 7 miles, a win win situation all round!

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!
