Why Bother

I spotted a field of cows & calves right beside the road yesterday while driving back from town. I thought “Great! That’s tomorrow’s activity sorted!” The morning after a boozy zoom is never really a great time to have plans as we all know, but nonetheless I was all gung ho about this amazing adventure…

Go for It

I was going to title this “Just Do It” but then I would probably have ended up being sued by a sportswear brand so here we are… Go for it! Go for what? Whatever it is you want to do, that’s what. I started my blog exactly one year ago today & it’s been a…

Recipe for a Happy Easter

Treading Water

I haven’t put together a blog post in 3 weeks. That’s the longest gap between my efforts in blogging since I started this properly 12 months ago. I just haven’t had those “ping!” moments where an idea comes to me & I start putting words down. My brain has just felt so empty. And at…
