#weektoview Miami to Sheffield

DSC01161I want to stop the time flying thorough my fingers. I don’t have time to blog all the mad things that happen in a week, but some of them are really worth a mention.

I would love you to join me in the most laidback visual linky on the planet. All you do is post your week in pictures. It might be all the week in glorious technicolour, part the week, or maybe you only took one photo. Maybe the one photo says it all. Sometimes that’s the way weeks go. A chance to look back at the seven days or so that just flew past.

I’m starting as I don’t mean to go on, with the most bonkers week I’ve had in years….my life isn’t always this exciting so please, let’s still be friends?

It started with a flight home from Miami where we were recording a promotional film on board Carnival Breeze as Carnival Cruise Lines #funnestfamily. We made it look easy of course, but we did work quite hard.

Loved Miami, more on it later, it was so cool, even though we were tired!

Tuesday found me on my bike for the first time in years, cycling 50k for Sport Relief. We only had 8 punctures!


While we were cycling we hit #teamhonkrelay’s £20,000 fundraising target for Sport Relief, this photo of Lucy from Lish Concepts says it all, it really helped us through the hellish bits.DSC01200

After a day of recovering, on Thursday Jaime from The Oliver’s Madhouse and I took to the Peaks to take the baton from Chatsworth to Sheffield. it was a very long straight road and it was a very tiring walk, mainly on the muddy verges of busy A roads, but we had so much fun.

Despite the road being one long straight one, we got so lost!


Since then I’ve been trying to catch up on work, I don’t feel too bad physically, after lots of chocolate, radox and deep heat, but oh my, mentally and emotionally I am knackered. I hate being disorganised and forgetting stuff, but this week I had to accept chaos ruled.

I’ve missed this guy so much, I have been trying to curl up with a cup of tea and Max at every opportunity. Two worn out racers.

Do share your #weektoview with us. As many or as few words and pictures as you like, in whatever format you like. It would be lovely if you would comment on two of the other posts linked up too and maybe show them some social love using #weektoview.

Cheeky 😉

If like me, this week your week has been particularly crazy, you could just leave any blogs you visit a cheeky 😉 in the comments.

      I’m craving normality badly, I haven’t seen my best friends for so long, and I am tired and emotional, but life is taking me places and I have to go. I really want some TIME too, to do ordinary stuff xxx
