Many of you will already be aware that I am a keen road cyclist. I have a cycling and fitness blog that I’m keeping updated right here … its called Girl On A Roadie (Roadie = road bike). If you’d like to keep track of my progress then head on over to the page and follow me – you need to have a Google account to follow the blog but if you don’t, you can still read the updates anyway by book-marking the link. I’m adding photos to the blog too, so if you’d like to see me wearing lycra (and making it look very cool), then… what are you waiting for! Click
Some of you may already be aware (if you follow my Facebook page), that I recently went on my annual winter holiday. This year I ventured to Mauritius and stayed at a breathtakingly beautiful resort named Shanti Maurice in the south of the island. I have written an article by way of a blog, detailing my experiences. So if you’d like to take a look, you’re most welcome! Head on over to Shanti Maurice – My week in Paradise
You may or may not already be aware that I’ve recently become a keen cyclist… I’ve just set up a blog for the updates on my road cycling and related activities. If you’re interested to follow it you can do so via my blogspot entitled “Girl On A Roadie”, right here
Girl On A Roadie has also been mentioned on Sports Direct News, see the article here by sports journalist Paul Donnelley.
A few weeks ago I had the absolute privilege of being cordially invited to the 2012 Royal Variety Performance at the Royal Albert Hall. This annual event held in honour of Her Majesty The Queen was due to take place on Monday 19th November, and it was not just any Royal Variety Performance – it was the very special 100th anniversary show! With a star studded line-up and exclusive guest list I was set to be amongst some of Britain’s finest ladies and gentlemen, guests of the Royal family and various other VIPs. I couldn’t believe my luck when I was informed I’d been allocated four tickets! Naturally I took my parents, the two people I am closest to and who have cared for me all these years. I also took my beautiful friend Ruth, who is another huge supporter of mine and deserved the special treat as well. We had the most incredible evening, all of us girls looked lovely in our black evening gowns and Dad looked cool in his black dickie bow and suit. Mum, Ruth and I pushed the boat out and had our make-up and hair done professionally. I had also purchased a brand new gown especially for the night, a stunning Forever Unique Brava dress which begged for a glamorous hair-up ‘do. I felt all emotional and patriotic when Her Majesty the Queen made her grand entrance into the Royal Albert Hall. She looked so adorable in her sparkly outfit and I’d never seen her in the flesh before so the anticipation all added to it. The show went off with a bang and all the acts excelled themselves! My favourite performers on the night were Robbie Williams, Placido Domingo and Katherine Jenkins duetting, the Diversity dance troupe, and the legend that is Neil Diamond. I cannot wait to see the whole show aired on ITV early next month! Take a look at a few of our photos from the evening. I’ve put them in a nice little slideshow…
It’s not just for girls!
