2012 in review

2012 was a curious year for me with a lot happening. After glorious #funemployment lasting six months I got a new job that I am still enjoying ten months later. Whilst it is the best job I have had my whole life, which is in a large part due to the relaxed working hours, I […]

Shine London 2012

Last year I had this crazy idea of signing up for a half marathon walk in aid of Cancer Research. I talked about it here and here. And then I didn’t talk about it any more.. First things first: I had a phenomenal number of donations totaling £313 [including gift aid] from these lovely people: […]

Pink!

As part of @satscenes self portrait week I took the above picture yesterday. I originally bought the wig to wear it at the three Race for Life events I am volunteering at this year, but last weekend’s Windsor Race for Life event was far too windy for it. It’s quite pink and I like how […]

Race for Life 2012 – Windsor

This is my third year volunteering for Race for Life and this year I’m volunteering at three events: Windsor, Oxford and Reading. Originally I had planned for it to just be Reading again, but, after finding out that the events manager from the past two years wouldn’t be doing it this year, I decided to […]

Getting over my inner swinedog

One of the things I’ve touched on in a recent post is that I am trying my hardest to become more grounded and it involves getting back into a routine with life. This isn’t just having that cup of tea in the morning or getting up at the same time each day, but mainly it’s […]

Shine!

I am absolutely in awe at the amount of donations people have made for Shine! With just over a month to go I have received £248 in donations for the £500 target I have set myself. So how is it going with the training? Well, it could be going better though it’s definitely not going […]

Shine London 2011 – It’s on! [Please sponsor me!]

I have mentioned in my previous post that I was considering taking part in Shine 2011 which is a marathon or half-marathon walk in London during the night of October 1st. Well, I have just signed up for it. It is a 13.1miles walk and I am about as unfit as they come and will […]

Half-marathon, me?

Just like last year I volunteered at the Race for Life in Reading this month. I’ve been a bit too busy to properly sort out the images though and none of them are that great seeing the weather was atrocious and I found myself very busy the entire weekend. On the second day I was […]

Cancer Research UK – Race for Life – Reading recap

As I’ve mentioned before I was part of the volunteer team at Reading’s Race for Life this past weekend.

Race for Life

I’ve long since supported Cancer Research UK with monthly donations and I have in the past volunteered with them, though it never actually came together as the events were either fully staffed already or at times when I couldn’t make it. A few months ago @chelthan told me that she was taking part in the […]

I am Sulz!

Which WordPress.com Forum Volunteer Are You? You are sulz! Don’t know much, but you make up for your lack of knowledge with your friendliness and niceness around the forums. Take this quiz It all began two three days ago when, after having used Diurnal for a long time, I decided a change was needed and […]

Dark Lake theme, NaNoWriMo and more..

Considering it has been over ten months since the last theme change it was about time it happened, so goodbye Diurnal and hello Dark Lake. Diurnal is an amazing theme, great colours, layout and the change of the colourscheme according to the time of the day is ingenious. However, considering how it’s now October and […]

I’m not having a good day.

Sometimes I do wonder if I’m just too cynical or the world just becomes a worse place to live. Gillian Gibbons has been released early and handed over to British officials in Sudan after being jailed for letting her class name a teddy bear Muhammad. I know I’m pretty much on my own with this […]

Cancer Research UK

One of the things I am very passionate about is Cancer Research UK. It is a charity raising money to fund the research for the cure in cancer. I have been donating money towards the cause ever since I have been in the UK and even though it’s only been a small amount every month, […]
