A lovely 5km run tonight around Cardiff Bay, a little brisk but much quieter than the bustling Xmas market in the City Centre. Thank you to everyone that braved the chilly evening and kept me company.

Our task, writing Christmas Cards for the Care Homes in Cardiff. Writing cards is a slightly dying art, but one that should continue as it can brighten someones mood and remind them that the sense of community still exists, and more importantly - CARES.

Michael had done their usual and hit the cards shops earlier on, buying as many charity packs as they could find, an extra bit of charitable work as the money goes to;

Teenage Cancer Trust, MIND, Macmillan Cancer Support, Alzheimer's Society and Make-A-Wish.

To add to the challenge, and for an extra workout, Michael decided to carry all of the supplies in their bag during the run.

Our location after the run once again, Muffin Break - time to treat ourselves with Muffins and Vegan sausage rolls.


The supplies came out and we got to the task at hand, coloured pens, brains trying to think of messages and some outstanding Artwork.

A special Shout Out - Condurache, your cards are fantastic! And of course,
