Double Trouble

Today as I am sure you are aware (well for those of you in the UK) is Mother’s Day, it is also Madam’s 13th birthday. We have never shared this day before and Madam was not particularly thrilled about doing so this year, especially when I told her today had to be all about ME! In the end I relented and we will celebrate my day next week when big Madam comes for a few days.

I was given the dangerous job of finding an activity to do in celebration of her transition in to teenagehood!

After much pouring over the internet (might have been an hour) I decided on Go Ape. For those of you not in the know, this is a tree top adventure, involving ropes, swing bridges, zip wires, harnesses, Tarzan swings and the like. OBVIOUSLY having only one good leg at the moment I did not hesitate in just stitching  signing up Madam and hubby.

I was chief photographer which was a lot safer and preferable for me, here is some snaps of them monkeying around.

The only down side on the day was the weather it was freezing! In fact so cold that mini monkey could not feel her toes so the adventure was cut short in favour of a much needed hot chocolate at the café, that was only after I found the Gruffalo in the deep dark woods, with his knobbly knees!


Its a Gruffalo!


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!

    I find those treetop courses absolutely terrifying from my vantage point on the ground. Good for the Madam and hubby for being so brave!

  4. Good choice of activity☺️
