I Love Days Like This!

How lovely to return home from holiday to comments on my blog - some from old friends and some from new faces, and all very welcome :-)

I have just returned from a week's holiday in Sharm el Sheikh which was wonderful, and I'll tell you all about that in the next few days. I want to write about today first though, while it's still fresh in my mind.

This morning DD and I went to church to listen to her banns being read for the first time. What a wonderful way to start a day :-) There are 10 weeks and 6 days to go now until the wedding, not that I am counting or anything, but I am so excited.

I hotfooted it from the church at Eastnor to Droitwich, where the Droitwich Half Marathon was taking place, and arrived in time to watch DS1 complete the course in a personal best time, of just over one hour and 22 minutes, taking 30 seconds off his previous personal best. We were there with two of his old schoolfriends and their wives (it doesn't seem five minutes since they were all 7 years old never mind being married with wives but there you are) and have all been for a lovely pub lunch together, reminiscing about old times and generally enjoying each other's company.

And to cap it all, Liverpool have beaten Manchester United :-) Life doesn't get any better than this!

DS is on his way back to London now and some of the best photos are on his camera, but here's a flavour of the day for you.

Edited to add this lovely photo which was in Rob's camera. Don't you just love it!

Next stop London and the Marathon on April 17th. I am very much looking forward to another lovely weekend.

Goodness, i don't know how he does it! Huge congrats to him though on beating his PB and by 30 seconds, that's just brilliant!
It looks like you all had a lovely day out, the sky looks a lovely clear blue and you can't beat a bit of reminiscing :)

My daughter is running in the London marathon, her first time and we'll be there to cheer her.

She's running for Pancreatic cancer in memory of her friend who died from this disease aged just 27.

How will we ravelry/knitting mums identify ourselves whilst suppporting our offspring?
