Rained Out :(

I have no videos of chasing cheese to show you.

The pouring rain woke us up at about 7am and hadn't stopped by the time we were supposed to get ready, nor had it stopped by the time we were supposed to be leaving. We decided that, rather than swim down the hill, we'd wait until next year. So... stay tuned for next year! Rumor has it that my brother might be joining in on the fun!

So as not to disappoint my rabid fans hungry for entertainment, I can provide some footage of the practice runs. We went to Blue Bell Hill near Maidstone and the husband took a few tumbles. The idea is to use his Aikido ukemi to keep the speed momentum when falling... It's harder than he thought!

And, just for the fun of it, I tried running down the hill. It was scary, and I wasn't even trying to ukemi!

Chasing the Cheese

If you are wondering what I'll be doing on my Bank Holiday Monday tomorrow... I will be filming my husband doing this:

I hope to put a clip up here, and the only reason I won't is if it turns out to be a film of him breaking his neck.

The Flat is Finished Slideshow 1

The flat is finished, and now we're moving out. Actually, the flat is finished because we're moving out.

Here is a slideshow showing the progression of half of the kitchen. This is the sink wall before, during and after the DIY.

More to come! Including snazzy photos using a wide angle lens...

A Lovely Song

To get me back into the habit of posting, here is a lovely song for you to enjoy. I loved it the second I watched it and had to share it with you.

If you are my grandma, you don't need to watch the stuff after the song. That stuff is a bit silly.

The girl in the video is an incredible musician and you can find more of her music here:

More posts soon!

Love you ALL.
