Day 181/365 and month 6/12

"Whatever you do, don't do it halfway." 6 months in and half way through this project, i've done better than I thought I would! Had a wonderful nights sleep back in my own bed, so much so that this mornings 6 mile run seemed fairly easy, even at 8am! We then had our first antenatal… Continue reading Day 181/365 and month 6/12

Day 180/365

"Work hard, stay positive, and get up early. It's the best part of the day." Setting the alarm for 3am felt just plain wrong, but it was a necessary evil to make the drive back to Caen ferry port, ready to head back to the UK. Using the frustratingly slow free ferry wifi to upload… Continue reading Day 180/365

Day 179/365

"Reason, observation, and experience; the holy trinity of science." Out for a 5km walk today, and perfect cool, cloudy weather for it. Lunch was the perfect motivation to keep us going! Saw some gorgeous sights on the way, walking through the French countryside and stopped to capture this dirt track driveway up to someones fantastic… Continue reading Day 179/365

Day 178/365

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." Had a fantastic day out at a French farm, the kids loved it! Weather was perfect. Its nice to switch off from technology once a while, made sure the iphone wasn't receiving calls or any other data. A really nice a quiet day tomorrow,… Continue reading Day 178/365

Day 177/365

"The average tourist wants to go to places where there are no tourists. Yesterday was spent at Mont St-Michel which was sadly a bit of a disappointment. Firstly the sheer volume of other tourists there made it almost impossible to get around. The amount of big hills and steps made me think that the parents… Continue reading Day 177/365

Day 176/365

"We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing." Okay so I was wrong about today, the visit to Mont St-Michel is actually tomorrow. Back down to the beach today and watching kids fly kites instead of sitting in front of xbox's and playstation's was a refreshing and encouraging… Continue reading Day 176/365

Day 175/365

"The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea." First day in France was spent at the beach, a quiet little stretch of sand near Gouville-sur-Mer. The sun was out and the sky was full of fluffy white clouds, it was a gorgeous start to the week! A hot chocolate at a… Continue reading Day 175/365

Day 174/365

"I love to travel, but sometimes it's nice to stay in one place." Sunday morning and i'm up early to drive to France via the Portsmouth - Cherbourg Ferry. I was quite looking forward to the crossing, but extremely choppy waters lay ahead of us. I wasn't particularly bothered, bumpy rides don't bother me, but… Continue reading Day 174/365

Off to France tomorrow, packing won't take too long, driving from Birmingham to Normandy should be fine, not… Continue reading Day 173/365

Day 172/365

"A day without laughter is a day wasted." What a day! Looks like i'm off to France on Sunday with work, the confusion about the return date and the impact it had on our antenatal classes has been cleared up now we have managed to swap the classes! A big relief now we can both… Continue reading Day 172/365
