It's been a busy few weeks......

On the back of my bruises & personal protection training, I've joined a gym to improve my strength & overall fitness - all I've done is aggravated my shin splints :( Think I'll just stick to swimming.

Have been to the beach a couple of times with friends when the sun has been shining, which to be honest hasn't been at all these last couple of weekends..... or weekdays..... Davey brought his stunt kites - here are a few pics of the boys trying them out.

And so onto this weekend - have booked the week off work - am heading this afternoon with about 15 young people to Summer Madness, a Christian youth festival. It should be a laugh although the weather forecast is atrocious - I fear we shall be washed away !! Tents, mud & Jesus - what more could we ask for ?? Am looking forward to hearing Brian McClaren speak, that and the burnt burgers that Neil will no doubt feed us !

I've spent the past week in training with my job doing personal protection type training - the usual self defence stuff & then some. I'm shattered - I haven't had this much excercise in years - I'm turning over a new leaf and joining a gym. On another note I'm also sore - I counted my bruises this evening - I have 29 on my arms alone...... ouch !!
