A blogging good wedding

So, yesterday Sam and Lisa got married. I would post pictures but I forgot my camera. They met through Warwick blogs, and it is also how I met them, my boyfriend and a load of other friends that were there too.
Anyway as nobody else has blogged about it on here I thought I should.
Blogtastic.

A bit of a change

I’m in the middle of big changes in my life. I’m buying a house with my best beloved boyfriend half way across the country. I haven’t blogged in a while but have decided to rejuvenate this forum for keeping a diary of the things I enjoy doing so people can keep up with me etc. It’s also a way for me to keep track of how my house and garden develop over time.
I’ve made most of my old entries not publiclly viewable but all the old stuff is still here. I’ve left out my walking routes (which I hope to be adding to) and my PGCE statement which people seem to find useful.

Here’s to more blogging!

Kenilworth Circular

Finished this one off with watching the carvival on Saturday last week and a trip to the fair on abbey fields

Ascent: 120m

That puts me at 60 miles out of the 250 I’m aiming for this year. And the summer hols haven’t even started.

I’ll be honest upfront and say that I got lost on this one. But even without a compass I managed to get back on the right track pretty quickly.
Distance: 10.4 miles
Ascent: 125m


Dof E walk 16th May

Walked along with a group of Y10s – they were leading and didn’t get lost once!

Grand Union Canal – Long Buckby to Stockton

Follow-up to Grand Union Canal – Rothersthorpe to Long Buckby from Garden, House, Walking, Other...

16.9 miles today. (On 4 hours sleep as well)
Footpath quality on the first stretch was terrible and then after that I got to the sign saying that part of the towpath was closed as it was too dangerous, so I did a long diversionincluding lots of nettles and the A45. I was off the towpath for most of the afternoon as well as my guide suggested the paths would be bad and gave a very nice alternate route through farmland.
I’m exhausted now!

Grand Union Canal – Wolverton to Rothersthorpe

Follow-up to Grand union Canal – Fenny Stratford to Wolverton from Garden, House, Walking, Other...

13/8 – Wolverton station to Rothershthorpe (for bus link to Northampton)
Weather fine, path quality excellent
14.7 miles is a fairly impressive stint really – and I didn’t notice that it was that long. Went off canal at two points – the first was a diversion due to towpath repairs, the second was at the Blisworth tunnel where there is no towpath as the canal goes under the hill for two miles.

Grand union Canal – Fenny Stratford to Wolverton

Follow-up to Grand Union Canal – Leighton Buzzard to Fenny Stratford from Garden, House, Walking, Other...

9.7 miles and minimal ascent proves that it’s sunlight that tires me out and not the walking itself.

26/7 – Tring Station to Leighton Buzzard station.
11.3 miles and minimal ascent.

I discovered my purpose in life was startling ducks.

After the walk, and with horrific blisters built up over the week I hobbled over to baker street and spent £100 on shoes. The shoe shop assistants were bemused that I decided to buy shoes that made me limp when I was trying them on!
