This weekend the Queen’s eldest granddaughter Zara Phillips got married to England rugby player Mike Tindall in a private ceremony in Edinburgh.

Zara chose a simple and traditional gown designed by Stewart Parvin, one of the Queen’s favourite designers and looked every inch the beautiful bride.

The wedding is said to have been a fabulous day, the sporting couple enjoyed a celebratory reception with their guests in the Queen’s official Scottish home Palace of Holyroodhouse.

After the highly published royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Zara and Mike decided on a low key event inviting only close friends, family and colleagues. Of course all senior royals were in attendance to see Zara said ‘I do’.

The few public photographs of the newlyweds look fantastic. I was however, surprised to hear that the couple is holding off a honeymoon until they’re sporting commitments are cleared.

Congratulations and all the best to the new royal couple, Zara and Mike.


MoonWalk Edinburgh 11th June 2011

 Walk the Walk

I can’t believe how quickly the Edinburgh MoonWalk has come around as thousands of people will be powerwalking through the beautiful streets of Edinburgh this Saturday.

Unfortunately I have some sad news concerning the event as I am unable to take part. Having trained for the 26 mile challenge I suffered an injury a couple of weeks ago. My foot became very sore, specifically around the heel area which was swollen and inflamed. Having had it checked out I was told that I had Plantar Fasciitis and the only way for it to get any better was to rest my foot and try to keep any weigh off it where possible.

It is really upsetting that I won’t be able to take part in what would have being my first ever MoonWalk. However, I understand that where injuries are concerned it’s best to take the advice of professionals and rest up.

Although I won’t be taking part my daughter Lucy is still going ahead with the MoonWalk and hopes to meet some new friends on route. She spent yesterday decorating her bra ready for Saturday’s big walk, it looks fabulous!

I’d just like to note that any sponsors I have received will be going directly to Walk the Walk against breast cancer fundraising scheme along with Lucy’s donations. I send all my best wishes to everyone who is taking on the huge challenge. Have a fabulous time and enjoy Edinburgh!

MoonWalk Frundraising Pack

Lucy and I have received a rather exciting e-mail today. Our Edinburgh MoonWalk fundraising packs have arrived meaning that the MoonWalk is fast approaching.

The fundraising pack is brilliant; packed with information on training, finding fellow walkers, donation information and even great hints and tips on how to decorate bras which will be showcased at the event.

The bra decorating looks like a lot of fun, even if the sheer thought of walking around in the middle of the night wearing only a bra is quite terrifying. The team at MoonWalk’s Walk the Walk have come up with some wonderfully creative ways to really make your bra stand out.

They have suggested all sorts from sequins and bright colours to frills and glitter and even included ways to hide those bits which none of us want to display. I’m undecided as to whether or not I will be taking the plunge wearing only a bra. Instead I might wear my delightfully decorative brassier on top of a top/t-shirt. Either way I definitely don’t want to miss out on the creative fun!

With inspiration from the latest MoonWalk e-mail and of course the treadmills which are nicely set up in the Bath-Knight offices, today I walked 1.7 miles which will be added to my training programme progress chart.

As with everything nowadays donation forms are digital and online, which is a marvellous thing in my opinion, as anyone and everyone can donate to a worthy cause at any time and from any part of the globe. Wonderful!

Midnight MoonWalk

After my daughter Lucy successfully took part in the Lochness Marathon earlier this year raising money for Dogs for the Disabled she started getting on at me. As my daughter is fairly persistent I reluctantly agreed to do something.

Having done some research she found a wonderful event called The Moonwalk created and organised by Walk the Walk, a charity whose aim is to unite against breast cancer. The MoonWalk is a marathon with a difference, instead of running participants powerwalk the 26.2 miles around their chosen destination.

Lucy who will be my walking partner and I have chosen to take part in the Edinburgh MoonWalk on the 11th June 2011. It will commence at midnight making for an eventful night of walking, walking and more walking.

The health benefits that the powerwalk and its training claim to bring are amazing so let’s hope it works for me. I haven’t been doing much in the way of keeping fit lately so this seems a great opportunity and what could be more exciting than a MoonWalk around the beautiful city of Edinburgh with thousands of others.

With 26.2 miles around Edinburgh looming training is essential so I’ve started by fitting my training into my everyday life. Taking the dogs for a walk along the canal is a perfect opportunity to get my walking shoes on and get out there.

I strongly believe that remaining independent can truly enhance life as I provide the facilities to do so with my business Bath-Knight. With this in mind taking care of yourself whilst having fun is the perfect way to feel and importantly stay independent.

I am very much looking forward to taking part in the event as The MoonWalk is for such a worthy charity. I have family and friends who have been affected by breast cancer but who hasn’t? Each MoonWalker wears a decorative bra on the outside of their outfit in the spirit of the cause, which will be a first for me.

I am also thrilled to celebrate the walk and its aims alongside my daughter. Hopefully she will drag me to the finish line!

My blog will be documenting my time training for the MoonWalk. So please follow me in my powerwalking journey of 26.2 miles around the wonderful city of Edinburgh.
