Running & Awards

We trouped off to watch some friends run the Bristol Half Marathon today. It was a beautiful day weather wise, very unexpected. The children were slightly disinterested to begin with, and I must agree that it's quite a weird feeling trying to absorb so many faces as they all run past. However, the children got the hang of cheering people along (without getting embarrassed) eventually and in the end it was hard to drag them away. Just as we were walking back a few more runners jogged past. They were wearing t-shirts with bras printed on them and I think they were running for a breast cancer charity. The t-shirts were quite bright and eye catching. Small Sprog spotted them.
"C'mon big bra ladies!" He shouted at the top of his voice!
Luckily they laughed.
A bit of Housekeeping now:
The brilliant Liz at Finding Life Hard has awarded me this.......

...................I'm not sure I deserve it but am very pleased to accept!

Thank You Liz

Now I have to pass it on so here goes;





All well deserved!

Hello there. What a lovely set out blog - and it sounds if you had a much better day than I did. I love Bristol. Haven't been there for years. Our friends live in a village nearby called East Harptree.

Sorry , new to all this, but hope we chat soon

I am so glad you ALL enjoyed it. There is something very liberating about cheering others on. :) I love Small Sprog more and more with each sprogism. :)
