Get Running – Day Two

So, yesterday was a rest day and today was the second run of week one. I have to say, even since Tuesday, things seem to be easier. My recovery time between each one minute run was shorter and I didn’t fall through the door gasping for water this time. I’ve been making sure I stretch before and after and I have a cool shower as soon as I get home (after cooling down properly) and …

Mummy’s Make Up

EDIT: Although I started by tagging people, it’s just so flippin’ fun that I want everyone who wants to join in to be able to, without having to wait to be tagged, so if this takes your fancy get involved and tweet me the results! (@jaynecrammond) Sausage decided this morning that she wanted to pretend to give me a make-over and I thought “what the heck!” and gave her free reign over my actual make …

Get Running – Day One

Yesterday was the first time I used my Get Running app and this is what I learned:   1. A minute of running can seem like an hour 2. A minute and a half of walking can go by in the blink of an eye 3. A male, un-neutered dog on a lead can be a perilous running companion, especially if it’s midday and there are a load of other dogs around. 4. Feeling your …

Top of the Class – Mum’s the Word Recommends…Tesco Clothing

The school that Sausage will be attending is a bit of an awkward one, the colours are ‘gold and brown’ (I’m sure that was ‘yellow’, last time I looked?!) and I’ve noticed already that acquiring the correct items for her has been an issue. Yellow doesn’t seem to be too difficult to get hold of, but brown seems to be far less popular. I’m surprised that retailers don’t make a point of finding out what colours the …

Running Back to Motherhood

I want another baby. Anyone who has read this blog over the past 2 years or knows me at all will know that this is a big statement. After having Sausage and the PTSD that followed, I honestly thought I’d never want any more children. The thought of going through a pregnancy and birth as hideous as my first was just too much to bear, let alone the thought of being unable to hold yet …

Top of the Class – Mum’s the Word Recommends…Ryman Stationary

As some of you may know, Sausage starts school next month, which means lots of uniform, stationary, bag, shoe and PE kit buying but as we’re new to this, we had no idea where to start. It occurred to me that if we’re feeling a little unsure then the chances are, other first-timers will be too so here at Casa Crammond, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to review and recommend all of the essential back …

Which GCSE’s Would You Take Now?

With all the talk of exam results this week, I got to thinking about what GSCE subjects I’d have chosen if I could choose them now. I always think that 14 is such a young age to make the decision, especially as we had it drummed into us that we needed to make the right choices so that we could study what we wanted at A-Level and then Degree level, which is effectively asking a person …

What’s in the Post?

        Woo hoo! Warner Brothers have kindly sent me season one and two of Dallas and I cannot wait to have an eighties-tastic viewing marathon. I wonder if I can think of some eighties snacks to go along with watching? Lean Cuisine, Slush Puppies and Opal Fruits, anyone?!
