Went to see one of my favourite bands perform live on Saturday night. The Divine Comedy at Somerset House, London. Neil Hannon was as fantastic as ever!

Fun in Fuerteventura

Hubby and I have recently returned from a relaxing week in Fuerteventura. Fuerteventura, a Spanish island, is one of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa. The weather and scenery was glorious. Aside from much lounging on the beach, I also visited a fabulous craft fair in the town square - full of lovely handmade art, jewellery, ceramics and other goodies.

The night that Spain won the World Cup there was much celebrating and dancing in the street. Great fun!

Race Day

I'm pleased to report that I completed my fourth Race For Life in just under 40 mins. The first 1km was over in a flash and I reached the 2km mark within 15 mins. Due to the heat though, I found the next 2km hard but pushed on to reach the 4km mark at around 30 mins. The final 1km was the most trying as there was no shade from the sun, but I concentrated on the reason I was taking part and that carried me on to the finish line. I even managed a short sprint to the finish!

Hundreds turned out to cheer on the runners and the atmosphere was fantastic. My sponsorship total currently stands at £345. Many thanks to all those who sponsored me and those that came along to support me on the day.
