It was a year ago today that Nick and myself climbed Ben Nevis, which is of course, the highest mountain in the British Isles! Standing at 1,345 metres above sea level!! Still can’t believe that we both did it!!

Here are some photos + vlog, from a truly amazing day!

Here are some photos from the very first time, I went to London! Way back in November 2002 with my boyfriend of the time… Just to think, I was only 21 or 22 at the time! Like another, life time ago!

Of course, I’ve been back, many, many times since!

I really can’t believe that my car, has now done 100,000 miles! Just to think, that I’ve had him since he was born! Got him way back in 2009! Just hope, he’s still got, a good number of miles left in him yet!

100,000 miles!
