Week 39 @ 40!

I haven't written an @40 update in a while. I have been making progress on my long term goals - ie blogging weekly, exercise, running, losing weight etc.

A definite highlight at the end of 2013 was a night away with my lovely mr.ncot to celebrate 13 years of marriage. We went to our favourite hotel in Lucerne and had a wonderful mini break. Thanks to my lovely little sister for looking after our monkeys at home!
