Bye Bye Barry

Bye bye.


He's been sold on etsy!


In other news - I have a ruptured hamstring. Ruptured I tell you. No running for me. Boobs.

Look who I found snuggled in my bed. A sleepy Parsley Lion. *yawn*

Parsley is chanelling my mood for the week - I wiped myself out on Sunday running the Nickey Line from Hemel Hempstead to Harpenden. I was going to go to martial arts last night, but I thought that since I have two classes today and was planning on going to the gym that I probably wouldn't make it through the day today if I rode all the way to Staines for martial arts!

This morning I have been to the gym, upper body work only since my tendonitis is back, but this time in the other knee. I am booked in with the physio tomorrow evening, and hopefully there's time to be fixed before the London Marathon.

Tonight I have MMA, which will be fun, we are doing bits and pieces of groundwork. Then on Saturday I have been abandoned, so will make full use of the day and have another martial arts lesson. Then on Sunday we are having a Sunday Smackdown with another club, I shall be all martialled out!

I forgot to update on my birthday, which was a week and a half ago!

So here are some pictures...




As you can see, there was plenty of cake!

Ninjabread Man


Lookout for him in 3D - coming soon to a monitor near you!

I am thinking about doing a craft fair at Easter. I have many many random ideas that I want to make for then...

I want a HOUSE


And I am SICK of everyone saying, "Why are you buying in London? Why not buy outside of London and commute, it'd be so much cheaper!"

You know what, maybe I don't want to live in suburbia. Maybe I don't want to have to queue with the 4x4s on the school run, maybe I just want to live 5 minutes walking distance from a train station that can take me to the next continent.

Happy New Year


I could post here about what a great year 2007 has been, what amazing things I've achieved, what I am looking forward to next year etc. But I am still too tired to even think about it!

So you'll just have to put up with DH singing Night Fever


and me with confetti on my face!


I will let you know though, that last year I set 6 goals for the year, which were:

1) Black Belt
2) 2nd Dan
3) Squat 150% of bodyweight
4) Weigh 11 stone 7lbs
5) Complete the Great North Run
6) Complete a marathon

I got 3 out of 6!

For 2008 I only have 3 goals so far and they're:

1) 2nd Dan
2) Complete FLM in under 5 hours 30
3) Do more crafty bits!
