My first 300 miles

At the beginning of this year I signed myself up to the 1000mile challenge. It is a challenge run by Country Walking Magazine, the idea is to walk 1000 miles throughout the year. This works out to be 2.75 miles each day. I’ve learnt since signing up that people approach this challenge in different ways.... Continue Reading →

Well that was 2020

I haven't written a blog since all the chaos began in March. I started writing quite a few in my head, and even started jotting things down once or twice, but none of them made it to here. There was an overload of information out there, so much to read, so much to take in... Continue Reading →

Clip ‘n’ Climb!

Yesterday I finally managed to cross another item off of that bucket list! You may remember back in 2017 I wrote a bucket list, because I decided that if I wrote down all of the random things "I would like to do one day" then I might actually get out there and do some of... Continue Reading →

Wobble of Self Worth

I'm having a wobble of Self worth again... Having been fighting a bug all week, hang on, actually only since Wednesday, though it feels so much longer.
