marina run...

The Mr and I have been extremely demotivated recently with our running...  We signed up to two races in April and May and missed them both because we didn't do enough (or rather any) training.

We are determined to get back into it!  I don't want to sound like some sort of crazy running junkie but once I actually get going, I really do like it - it's great for clearing my head and just having some 'me' time...

I have been thinking for ages that I need to run around the Marina Bay area after work as it is right near my office.  So I finally did a loop today which took me around the bay from Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC), past the Marina Bay Sands, the F1 stand, the Esplanade, the Fullerton Hotel and back to MBFC.   It was such a good idea as it is such a beautiful area to run around at dusk.  I am going to try and do this a couple of times a week...

I should have taken photos on my phone but here are some pics I found on the interwebs :)  I feel very lucky to live here...

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Today I need to concentrate and write a briefing paper for my boss' boss.  Being in an open plan office it means putting on my headphones and turning on Spotify to listen to their Afternoon Acoustic playlist.  It's my go-to playlist and features this sweet little tune from John Mayer...

Back to blogging..

And I'm back... I have found myself with some more spare time up my sleeve recently and a friend suggested that I should throw myself back into blogging again so here I am!

It's crazy that it's been almost a year since my last post. 2015 was a bit of a pretty dramatic year for us on the health front so we are hoping for a lot less drama this year!

But it will be a big year with a new home purchase and us moving in mid-year.  So that means some renovating and decorating which I will hopefully post about here.  The pinning has already begun...!

In the meantime, we just enjoyed a lovely long Easter weekend at home and hosted some friends for lunch on Easter Saturday.  First time we made a lamb roast (and it turned out great to our delight) and we also pulled out the same hot cross buns recipe that I used last year which was a hit. I think this will become an annual Easter tradition.

I really do love cooking for family and friends so I think my next hosting challenge will b…
