December Roundup

December has been one of those “blink-and-you-miss-it” kinda months!

I started December with a trip to Garson’s Garden Centre to go and feed the Reindeer. They were so cute and total posers as you can see.


On 2nd December I participated in my first piece of parkrun tourism. My husband and I went along to Moors Valley parkrun which is about 50 minutes away. It was a lovely course (albeit a bit hilly) and it was a frosty but sunny morning. I loved running with my feet crunching the ground and looking round at the glistening pine trees.

Have I mentioned before all the Christmas Decorations we have are Reindeers? When I saw these cuties I just had to have them. They’re from Finishing Touches, a local shop, at Lee-on-the-Solent.

I hope you all had a good Christmas and enjoyed the festive break. I loved this wrapping paper from Tesco. Of course, it had to be Reindeers.

Christmas Presents

On 23rd December my local parkrun held their Christmas Fancy Dress run. I went dressed as a Christmas Pudding! So many people shouted “Well Done Pudding” or “Keep Going Pudding” It was really funny. I did feel very silly walking to parkrun dressed like this though! This picture was taken by my Mum who had got up at 3am to drive down and surprise me!

I donned the pudding outfit again on Christmas Eve for junior parkrun. We had a photographer from the local newspaper come down and take some pictures. We had Santa Claus come down on his sleigh which made the children’s day. He gave them high fives and cheered them on as they ran by and afterwards they could have their picture taken with him whilst sat on his sleigh. Here’s a picture of the volunteers that day with Santa at the back!

One of my favourite Christmas presents this year was this little fella knitted by my Mum. Isn’t she clever! I loved his little knitted nose!
