To help avoid my personal life crossing over to my crafting blog I have decided to start an 'add-on' site to allow me to ramble about anything and everything. I have grand hopes to visit exotic places, eat magnificent food, have a beautifully decorated home and take lots of photographs; and one day it might actually happen In the mean time i'll be writing about Graeme (my boyfriend) and my own challenge to lose weight and get healthier. Our day to day adventures of travelling around England, the trials of living in a rented flat that is far too small for our hoards of crafting supplies and trying my best to always have my camera on me and actually upload the thousands of Photographs I take.

At the present Graeme and I are preparing for our holiday, a trip around the UK to hopefully complete the 3 peaks... in 2 weeks. We both know that neither of us are fit enough to attempt completing the '3 Peaks Challenge' of walking the highest mountains in Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scafell Pike) and Wales (Mount Snowdon) over 24 hours, but 2 weeks may just be doable.  

To help with our fitness for the hike we have also taken up running to improve our stamina.  I will probably be writing about this extensively over the next few weeks as we follow the Couch to 5K in 9 weeks program, it may take a little longer as we are on holiday in the middle and terribly unfit; at least I am.

Hope you enjoy the journey with us,
