|Lots of miles clocked up (& todays temp ergo NO run today!!)|
OK, here are some of my better food choices, followed by my not so good food choices .....
|Good food choices ... even when out at a Pizza restaurant :-)|
|The not so good food choices|
After we left Gateshead we went to Holy Island, Lindisfarne. I absolutely loved my run on Holy Island and it probably had something to do with the fact I love the place. I am over the moon that the boys loved it too and they want to go back for a week next year :-)

After the island we went to Edinburgh, did the obligatory open top bus tour, saw some of the road/promenade where they run part of the Edinburgh marathon (yes I hope to put it on my list one day); while there I also managed a treadmill run and a 300meter

After Edinburgh we went to Cheshire to visit with more family but it was way more relaxing and no hotel - it was heaven and really great to catch up with them all. One of those visits where you leave thinking "must not leave it so long next time!"
Home trip was hideous, I made BAD food choices and thanks to the V festival with everyone and their dog being on the M6; and then the M25 as always was chocka, I avoided road rage by thinking of Zumba later that evening ... it did the job :-)
And to end off I need to show you how big TJ the duck grew in 8 days!!!! what HAS he been eating???
So I am back to routine of summer holidays at home. I must confess to not doing much blog reading but will try catch up when I can.
