The Müller Anniversary Games at Queen Elizabeth Stadium, London

Muller Anniversary Games

On Sunday we headed to London Stadium at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to watch the now iconic annual Müller Anniversary Games which have continued on our success in athletics from London 2012. These games saw some of the very best athletes in the world head to the British capital to compete in the IAAF Diamond League track and field/athletics season. I have to admit that sporting events we normally attend are football related, with our last being the Women’s FA… Continue Reading “The Müller Anniversary Games at Queen Elizabeth Stadium, London”

Walking the Southwest Coast path to Old Harry Rocks

Old Harry Rocks

Last week we had three birthday’s in our house, Sebastian turned 5 on Wednesday, mine on Thursday and Callan’s 21st was on Sunday. As you can imagine, that equated to a pretty expensive week, so when Hubby asked what I wanted to do for my birthday it involved finding an activity that didn’t cost too much. Our first plan involved London as I was supposed to be attending an event, but when that fell through, Hubby tried to book a… Continue Reading “Walking the Southwest Coast path to Old Harry Rocks”
