today i learned – thurs 30th nov 2017

as i’ve now been a runner for about three months, i am legit a professional sports person* 💁🏻‍♀️ … (*i am not a sports person 😂)

#tdil that there is an actual sport that actually exists called ‘hobbyhorse riding’ 😳 ummm … Continue reading “today i learned – thurs 30th nov 2017”

yesterday, i went bowling and thought that i’d learned a thing 👍🏻 now, whilst trying to write it down … i’ve realised that it actually really confuses me 😂

so, instead of that fact, here’s a different fact about ten pin bowling 🏀 (there are no bowling emojis, so just pretend 😬)

#tdil that you’re allowed a maximum of 12 different holes on a bowling ball! 😳 Continue reading “today i learned – mon 30th oct 2017”

as you may have seen in various previous posts, i’ve become one of those weird people that runs 🏃🏻‍♂️

#tdil the cause of that horrid pain that is called a ‘stitch’ 😓 Continue reading “today i learned – thurs 19th oct 2017”

right, i’m afraid this is going to be another one of those fairly quick ones 😅 got lots to do and all that 👍🏻

any way, today’s fact concerns itself with my dogs’ favourite toy – the frisbee (there’s no emoji for that ☹️).

#tdil that the dude who revolutionised the frisbee, was cremated and turned into frisbees when he died #rip … that’s commitment to the cause!? Continue reading “today i learned – sun 13th aug 2017”

apparently it’s national beer day today … well, according to facey-b it is – so it has to be true?! as such, i was initially going to do a beer based fact today 🍺

however, in my search for beer based facts, i stumbled upon something much much better (and loosely related to beer).

#tdil of the existence of a sport called ‘wife carrying’ 😅 Continue reading “today i learned – fri 4th aug 2017”

today’s fact was actually a request! how very exciting 🙊 … more requests please people! 😏

today’s fact might actually be the most topical fact we’ve had to date … like, i’ve actually related it to something that’s happening in the real world?! #gome

anyway! the ‘something’ that i’m referring to is that little tennis tournament called wimbledon … you may have heard of it? 🤔

#tdil the reason why tennis balls are kept in a refrigerated container ❄️ Continue reading “today i learned – mon 3rd july 2017”

today i learned – fri 5th may 2017

as with most of the random drivel that you’ll find on this blog … today’s little fact was discovered entirely by accident 👍🏻 this is despite the fact that i was a swimmer for the majority of my younger life.

to be honest, i’m really surprised that i’ve never learned this fact until today 🤔 was obviously not as committed to the swim life as i thought i was 🙈

#tdil the reason why your fingers go all wrinkly when you go swimming for any length of time.  Continue reading “today i learned – fri 5th may 2017”
