Race For Life..

Yesterday, I completed the Race For Life.
I did the 5k race around the lovely place that is Luton Hoo and I did it in 46 minutes which I am really proud of. 
It was apparently one of the hottest days of the year so far, with not a cloud in the sky.
This is the first time I have taken part in something like this, but I really enjoyed it, even if running is not my forte. I will definitely do something like this in the future, the effort put in by everyone taking part is amazing and reading the back signs of who the participants are running for, really pushes you further.
Arriving at the finish line (I'm not running the wrong way, the people running the other way are people starting the race as they were late)
This was taken just after I had finished the race... I don't look too red in the face!!

Bird Cage Antics...

Today marks the end of my Art Foundation Course... after 11 weeks of working on my FMP, it is finally done. 
I have spent the last week putting up my final display and I handed in my prep work this afternoon. It's such a good feeling handing something in that you have put so much time and effort into, except the inevitable 'don't know what to do with myself' feeling arises. However, that feeling quickly disappeared when I walked into my bedroom and realised the mess I had managed to create in it whilst I had been so busy with my college work. I think I know what I'll be doing over this next week!!
Anyway, here are a few pictures that I took of the bird cage that I have used in my final piece, this is all I am going to show you so far... I will post pictures of the display and explain what it's about after the public show next week.
