Life in a nutshell, 'cos it's better if you're nuts!

A collection of random thoughts, adventures, happenings and general goings on in the Gardner Family.
Morning After

Morning After

Open the photo gallery >> The morning after was a bit slow as Kas was feeling rather stiff, so we had a leisurely breakfast in the hotel whilst deciding what to do for the 3/4 of a day we had to fill before our flights home. Initially we decided we'd go for a...

Race Day

Race Day

Open the photo gallery >> Race day started disgustingly early for a Sunday morning, but not, apparently, too early for the hotel breakfast bar. I think they might have had a few other marathon runners in the building. We had to be up at the start for around...

Templehof

Templehof

Open the photo gallery >> We grabbed a decent breakfast at the hotel fairly early, as we'd got to get ourselves off to the Marathon Expo, for collection of numbers, purchasing of unnecessary running equipment, and things like that. It was also Kas's birthday....

Air Miles

Stoke Bruerne

Stoke Bruerne

A Sunday afternoon jaunt with Daughterus Maximus over to a tempting looking (i.e. short and easy looking) new series of caches at Stoke Bruerne.

Kenilworth Half 2013

Kenilworth Half 2013

We had a quick dash up to Kenilworth so that Kas could run the half marathon there. I toyed with the idea of running too but then Kas told me there’s no medal. No medal ? No run.

Nene Walk

Nene Walk

A bit of caching down by the river in Northampton, because, you know….

Weymouth

Weymouth

Our final day in Dorset, which was spent mainly in Weymouth. The girls did a bit of “beach work” while I went geocaching. Then we had posh fish and chips for tea and the girls got hair braids.

Not What We Planned

Not What We Planned

A perfect example that if you’re going to take a holiday in the UK you always need to plan what you are going to do on the days when the weather is rubbish.

Geography Lesson

Geography Lesson

Henges, white horses, geocaches and some rather nice looking bits of coastline.
