It was my last full day, I had one more sleep before I would have to pack up and leave. I knew I already didn’t want to. I had nothing planned. I got ready and decided along the way that I really should go and see the Marina Bay Sands hotel up close. So far… Continue reading Singapore – Shooting the Breeze
Between all the walking, the time difference, that was playing havoc and the heat, I was knackered. I woke up and then dozed - a few times. Eventually getting up to have breakfast on the balcony, coffee and writing a bit. I think because I’m in an apartment block as opposed to a hotel I’m… Continue reading Singapore – A Day of Rest
I was awake. I’d managed to sleep a bit but you never can settle when you know you’ve got to be up super early, I had to get the bus to the Terminal. I was downstairs waiting nice and early. I bought a return ticket at the machine and stood and waited. I decided to… Continue reading Singapore – Travel Day and a little bit more..
It’s been a while since my last trip away. There have been reasons. The main one being the swimming. It seemed to completely take over mine and Viv’s lives.

It’s the equivalent of swimming the English Channel - so today I was going to arrive in France! I was swimming, as always, with my… Continue reading I Can’t Quite Believe It!

She’s my rock, the voice in my head and conscience on my shoulder, although I don’t always follow her advice...I can… Continue reading A Big Wet Week
Well, you’ll never guess what! I only went and did it!! I swam my First Ever Mile on Sunday night!!! I still can’t quite believe it. It was a fairly quiet pool, just Viv (aka Ariel) next to me and a couple of other people, so no body dodging or swimming over children....no I don’t… Continue reading A Big Update
So, I’ve swum five times since the challenge started and tonight I have finally pushed through 3 miles!!! I am so, so chuffed you have no idea! Last Thursday I pushed myself to do 80 lengths (the pool is 15m long), tonight I could only manage 50. It was a struggle. I’ve damaged my shoulder… Continue reading Swim Update
