Before we owned a dog, I assumed ‘walkies’ would be an easy breezy task. Just pop the lead on, skip out of the door and everyone would have a jolly good time. However it soon became apparent that it’s not quite that simple and that learning how to make walks a fun, safe and stimulating … More Doggy Do and Doggy Don’t.
After a bit of an unplanned hiatus from blogging, I am now planning to be back and more dedicated than ever (don’t we all say that?) and I am newly invigorated having completed the 2016 London Marathon on Sunday 24 April! After months of training, worrying and buying every piece of sports clothing and equipment … More I Ran The Marathon
Taking on running a marathon was always going to be a daunting task, so that part hasn’t surprised me. What has surprised me is the battle of wills going on in my body every day. Whilst part of me wants to lie in bed at any opportunity, warming up my feet, resting my legs, there … More Marathon. So Where Am I Now?

The sunny shores of far off beaches are always appealing but there’s something completely delightful about a weekend on the Isle of Wight in springtime. There’s sunshine, ice cream and more mini golf than you could ever hope to complete in 48 hours and it doesn’t require a passport to get there. I love the … More The Isle of Wight: Sandown and Shanklin
When you think about it, the fact that dogs and cats need to donate blood, is obvious. You may remember my recent blog post on my shih tzu, Ralphie, and the treatment he has received for an illness relating to his blood. After I posted that, the RVC, where he received his treatment, got in … More Animal Blood Donors
It’s very easy to write about London as being a busy and dreary town where the skies are grey, the rain is cold and constant and the residents are gloomy but when spring arrives a refreshed and cheerful city awakens. We know our limitations as a city. We know the sunshine hours are short, that … More Travel Tuesday: London in Spring
If you follow me on instagram you’ll know I have a little shih tzu called Ralphie. I thought I might introduce Ralphie to ThatEmily and tell you a bit of his story so far. We got Ralphie as a puppy (we looked into rescue centres but as we have lots of rabbits it would be … More My Shih Tzu, Ralphie.
