The Time Bandits got me again

Hello Fudgey Friends,

How are you all?
I have so many things to blog about but just not enough time.

Last weekend took part in The First Nation Home event & Sports Relief

My training has been going really well & apart from a few minor aches & pains I'm feeling really strong.

This is my last week in my current job & next week I move department / team - back to an operational role which I know I will enjoy much more. My time in the Change Team has been a bit of a roller coaster but I have learnt a lot and worked with some great people but it's time to move on.

This weekend coming I have the Kilomathon

I promise I'll make some time to sit down & blog & share some photos.

Please bear with me & the Time bandits

Take Care

Happy Mothers Day

Hello Fudgey Friends,

Just a quick post today to wish all Mums everywhere a very Happy Mothers Day.

Sometimes I wish I lived closer to my Mum so I could just pop in for a cup of tea & a chat, or invite her round for dinner. Miss you & love you Mum x
Happy Mother's Day Mum - hope you had a lovely day.

To my wee Sis who inspires me constantly with her energy & patience with the 3 pink princesses - I honestly don't know how you do it. Hope you've had some time to relax today.

To Mum Smith - hope you feel lots better soon. Hope you enjoyed your meal with us. Thank you so much for everything you do for Mr Fudgey & I - we truly appreciate it & love you very much x

and to borrow the words of my friend Julie (hope you don't mind?)
And to all of u special ladies who want to be mummies and aren't yet or can't be for whatever reason, u should enjoy this day too. It's for mummies, and granny's and aunties, and godmothers, and all special ladies who have children in their heart, :-)) xx

Last but not least I'm thinking those who don't have their Mum with them anymore or don't have their children - I can only imagine how emotional today is for you, but remember they are always in your heart x

Take Care Everyone
I'll be back soon with another post

lots of love

What's Cooking in the Fudgey Kitchen?

Hello Fudgey Friends,

How is everyone?
Sorry I never posted last week, had a bad day on Sunday (more on that in a minute) & then just had a bad week this week, been angry with everything & everyone, tired, lethargic & just generally a bit meh - but tomorrow's a new week & I'll start afresh.

What's eating Mrs Fudgey
Last Sunday I was due to take part in The Meadows Marathon event & was looking forward to writing a race report for you. Unfortunately I wasn't able to take part as the bus was a no show & with the service being hourly on a Sunday, the next bus was too late to make the start of the race. As you can guess I was pretty angry & upset.

On Monday I contacted the bus company & also found details & emailed the MD. 45 minutes later I had a phone call & am having my entry fee refunded & a donation of £75 made to The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice. So not such a bad ending.

I'm also currently 'fighting' with Vodafone but having less success there. I've pretty much decided to go elsewhere as I'm so disappointed in their customer service. So if anyone has any recommendations or advice on mobile phone providers who are good / not so good - I'm happy to hear it.

Lack of Caffiene :-(Making me very unhappy - in fact so much so that I am tempted to just give in on this one. It's been 19 days and Green tea, fruit tea & herbal tea just aren't the same as real tea or coffee.
The only thing keeping me going is sheer bloody mindedness. Though I suspect for my sanity & for those around me it may just be better for me to admit defeat.

Returning the Hippo to the Zoo
I seem to have lost my appetite this week and found a hippo's! It's so unlike me to be so undisciplined. So I need to return the hippo to the zoo & get back on track this week.

Missing Running Mojo
I've lost my desire to run :-( I'm hoping though that these last few days resting will set me up for next week & I'm going to try & run 3 times.

See I am a moany, narky pants this week. Sorry all.

Madam Butterfly
To try & end my post on a more positive note I did have a lovely evening out on Monday with Mr Fudgey. We went to see Madam Butterfly in 3D, it was certainly different to seeing it performed live but was a fantastic performance & true to form I cried loads!
We also had a really nice meal at Wagamamas. After weeks of being very strict I finally had a dessert - Coconut ice cream & it didn't disappoint :-)

What's Cooking in The Fudgey Kitchen?
I realised that I haven't had a food post for ages & ages.
I've been busy today as I've made 2 batches of Chicken & Mango Curry & a pot of vegetable chilli.
One batch of curry for Mum & Dad Smith to save them cooking tonight, the other for dinner in the Fudgey house tomorrow & the chilli for lunches. Life is so much easier when I'm prepared ahead & organised.

Well guys & girls I'm going to leave you there. I'll be back next weekend I will be more upbeat & I will have run 3 times I promise.

lots of love
