I'm back!

I have been very quiet (well actually totally silent!) on the blogging front recently. I am afraid that life has rather got in the way! Here are some of the highlights of my last month:

* I ran the Cardiff 10k - my first 10k race. In fact the first time I had ever run 10k! My timer stopped halfway through so had no idea of my pace etc as I went around the course. My finishing time wasn't great but I was really pleased that I finished the race as it was something totally out of my comfort zone. I also helped to raise funds for a great charity, Mothers of Africa which aims to reduce the number of women in sub-Saharan Africa who die in childbirth.

* I worked on a lecture being given by Sir David Attenborough. This sold-out lecture has been months in the planning so I have been looking forward to it for a long time. I was honoured to be given the opportunity to interview him for the University website. He is a broadcasting legend, who has presented countless documentaries which I remember throughout the course of my life. Therefore it was quite a surreal experience interviewing him and hearing THAT voice answering my questions. Sir David gave a fascinating lecture on naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace and Birds of Paradise to over a 1,000 people later that evening. It was definitely a day to remember!

* I am currently in the process of moving house. There is a lot of work to be done on the new place so most of my spare time is being spent paint-brush in hand! The move has finallly given me reason to make use of my interiors board on Pinterest. I look forward to sharing some photos once it is all finished, but in the mean time here are some photos from my interiors Pinterest board which are currently inspiring me.

Now I love a bit of leopard print, but think this might just be a bit too much?!
