Happy new year

I haven't blogged in a while as my laptop has been stolen by my daughter as hers has broken.

I am using another one so have no photos at the moment.

I hope that you all have a wonderful new years eve. I know I will as I am celebrating with my friends this year.

Resolutions for the new year?? not really got any as I a pretty happy with my life. Might declutter a bit, exercise more (HAHAHHA) blog more regularly!!

I hope that you have enjoyed reading my blog this year, I have had a lot of enjoyment in taking photos and sharing my life with you all. I know that not everyone is into the same interests as others but this is what makes everyone individual.

See you all next year!!

Triathlon season!

First here is a photo of our little Milly. She and Cookie are besties and play very well together.. more photos to come in future posts

Ive been rather busy recently so have neglected the blog somewhat.
I have lots to tell and quite a few photos but think I will blog for each event in individual posts.... so which to talk about first....
Well I guess I will get the brag over....

I didn't win a new bike, but my training partner and I participated in our first triathlon for the season last Sunday morning at 7am at Mordialloc Beach.

I don't have any photos of us at this stage but the weather was far from warm and the water was rather rough, making the swim leg very challenging

I am however very happy with my times and finished in 39.36.1 my partner in crime finished 38.28.3 She was 7th in our age group and I was 11th (10th if you discount the woman with no swim time!!)

I did a personal best in my ride and my run, so cant complain about that!

We have a plan for our events for the next 3 months.
Jan 2 - Amy's ride - 70km bike ride in Geelong
Jan 22 - triathlon at Elwood beach - 250m swim, 10km ride and 2km run (little bigger this time.
Jan 29 - triathlon pink - not sure if we are doing the mini or the long course at this stage.
March 4th - tough blokes challenge - this is an obstacle course with running between obstacles.... nets, mud, ropes, mud, monkey bars, mud, oh did I mention mud?? This one is going to be fun!
