Shiny thing alert!!!!!

Shiny thing alert!!!!!

You know I told you that I ran a half marathon the other day but that there was no medal at the end of it, just a tee shirt. Well some kind person on here has made me this lovely, gorgeous, beautiful MEDAL!!!

Clap your eyes on this baby!

The clever medal maker is none other than our very own ALIBOO. I'm so thrilled with this I can't tell you.

Thank you so much Ali!

Oops I cut a bit off! My photography skills are pants!

I did a HND metalcrafts back 20 odd years ago and still like making things! I made my pal a medal for patience last year as she had waited 30yrs for her partner to propose!! 😆

hahaha, that sounds like the best reason ever for a medal. Love it!

Gawd, I've just seen this was two YEARS ago! I thought I recognised it, but I thought it said two days ago... doh!

Reply

Yeah, I did a double take. Time, where does it go ey! LOL

Actually, it's the source of that there medal that could be a goer again for me this year as my very local marathon (eg the one down the road) has temporarily suspended entries due to a managerial kerfuffle. So I could be switching to that one which should be Sept Octoberish. Glad I'd not already entered my one
