Today I am having a very laid back and relaxing Sunday but this time last week it was a far different story! We spent the day at gorgeous Wollaton Hall Park volunteering at the first event of the 2015 British Nordic Walking Challenge Series. While I absolutely love participating in events I think that volunteering is even more fun, especially seeing everyone's faces as they cross the finish line and collect their well-earned medals.

It wasn't what I was saying but the 'ears' I was wearing!

Smiles and medals!
