Gung-ho 5km

Gung- ho  17th June 2017 










This was a fun 5km obstacle course in Southampton common, it's a beautiful place full of spacious areas for picnics and a large pond. It's also great for the kids and has a lovely restaurant / cafe called the cafe' at the hawthorns. 

The course was hard work in the heat I'm not going to lie, we ran as much as we could but a lot of us ended up jogging and walking. We still managed to complete the course in 45mins. There were 10 obstacles each got bigger and harder but with so many laughs and moaning about how hot it was we had a great time. You were allowed to walk, run or jog and you could skip obstacles if you needed to. It was very much free for all but we couldn't wait to finish when we saw the huge blue inflatable slide at the end. It took what felt like ages climbing up the thing! As we got to the top we didn't realise it was a full blown water slide and yes, we got soaked but it was very much needed as it cooled us down straight away and landing in foam was the icing on the cake. We received a Gung ho T-shirt and a head band to show we completed the race. Would I do it again!? Yes! 

I hope you enjoyed the read 
Lots of love

not another autumn post

autumn is here...
Cosy, fluffy blankets are on the top of my list, although I keep them out all year round, I do have a basket in the front room to keep them stored both the grey and brown are from Primark at only £5 each. The crochet red and white one was hand made by a family member for poppy.

- Scents around the house have to be sweet and fresh but I do like the apple and cinnamon smells for autumn and winter plus a few Yankee candles ( Christmas cookie is my favourite).

- A new bag! I try to have a bag for every season but I change my mind all the time, this year I've gone for a cross over bag with gorgeous embroidery detail and guess what? It was only £7 from primark. Bonus! 
- I can finally bring out my favourite boots. My studded ankle boots from Truffle and my Dune brown winter boots are nice and warm also my pretty floral Ralph Lauren wellies are great for a rainy day or a muddy hike! 
- This is going to be an odd one but I tend to clear out my wardrobe for every season, …

Jane Eyre at The Mayflower theatre

A night at the theatre with @sotonbloggers 




I've always been a theatre lover and I've seen many shows at the Mayflower theatre over the years, so when I was invited to see Sally cooksons new adaptation of Charlotte bronte's novel Jayne eyre last night, I had to be there. We were given Great seats where we sat comfortably waiting for the show to begin. I honestly had no idea what to expect on this "new take" of the novel, it was also a great time to announce the tour as 2017 is the 170th anniversary of when Jane eyre was first published. the highly acclaimed co-production between the national theatre and the Bristol old vic. 
Jayne Eyre, played by the amazingly talented Nadia Cliford, shows her beginnings as a destitute orphan overcomes life's obstacles from surviving poverty, injustice, betrayal and the ultimate decisions on following her heart. While others may of found the thought of Jayne Eyre on stage might not of been their cup of tea I can honestly say…
