Week 19 – 8-14 May 2023


The week started with two bank holidays – Monday was for the King’s Coronation and we had a nice day doing stuff in the garden and getting bits and pieces done. Tuesday was Liberation Day and we headed down to Cobo for a swim in the murky weather, the kids stayed in for ages and then in the afternoon we went to the local parish celebrations and watch the cavalcade before heading off the L’Eree where they had a few more things going on. We had a lovely chilled out afternoon.

On Thursday I wasn’t very well with a nasty cold so stayed at home and took as many cold and flu remedies as I could find because on Friday I was singing at a concert. I just about made it but had very little voice left by the end of it!

Our friend Tom arrived on Saturday as he and The Mister, along with my sister, were running GU36, the Guernsey Ultra which is a 36 mile race; the first 16 miles are on the cliff so it is a bit brutal. It is a nice event to be around, the atmosphere is lovely and it is very supportive.

The Sister did well, coming in first woman in a time of 5 hours and 55 minutes. The Mister finished, in one piece in a time of 6 hours 58 minutes which was faster than his last time. Unfortunately Tom had to pull out at 26 miles due to problems with his calf. They all did so well though.

For The Mister’s birthday present last January I bought him a weekends course in oil painting and he finally got around to going on it.

He had a fabulous weekend and created this gorgeous picture. I am so proud of him. He is really talented,

This was taken yesterday – this is what The Mister’s fingers look like after sea swimming. I keep nagging him to see his GP but he is pretty stubborn!

15.5Today The Mister decided that he would participate in GU36. It is an ultra race which starts with 16 miles on the cliffs and then a nice gentle run around the rest of the island until you get to town. Just 36 miles.

He completed it in 29th place out of 107 and it still walking. He was beaten just by my cousins wife Vicky – another great run for her. They both did a brilliant job.

Today would also have been Mum’s birthday so we went out for dinner with my dad and sister and niece (my nephew and BIL were in Jersey). We stopped off at her grave to take a quick pic.

Well done Mister. I am super proud of you.

1.1Last night I laid out the Advent calendars for The Mister and the kids.

This morning it made me happy to see the kids cooing about their lovely calendars and The Mister asked if I had bought myself one – to which my response was ‘no’.

It took me a good few minutes to realise that there was this amazing creation – my wonderfully kind and thoughtful husband had made me my own gin Advent calendar. It made me cry just a little bit. I so appreciated the hard work and the thoughtfulness which had gone into this gift.

I often moan and complain about all sorts of things, including The Mister, but I appreciate him and love him so much. He is a superstar for putting up with me.

Day 237

The Mister - 10 years onTen years ago today The Mister and I finally got our act together in the The Jesus Arms at Greenbelt.

So much has changed since then and we are living far away from where we first started. We have two wonderful (of rather demanding) children and busy jobs and lives.

What hasn’t changed for me is the love I have for him. Knowing that he will support me through thick and thin and the fact he is always there is terribly reassuring.

He is a wonderful, kind man who makes me smile a lot, infuriates me sometimes, but always makes me grateful he is by my side.

I love you Mister x
