I know - no posts for AGES at the end of last year. Basically, life went a bit crazy. House move, puppy, the unending demands of school in the winter term and, of course, Christmas. Speaking of which, I wish you all a VERY Happy New Year. One other thing that almost happened last year… Continue reading What almost happened…..
Ordinarily, those are words you'd be happy to hear. But what if you're hearing those words and, instead of bringing comfort, they just add to your despair. Despair is a strong word, but in the case of 'today' it is absolutely on point. You see today was a worse than usual bad morning in our… Continue reading “Don’t worry, you’re perfectly normal”
If you're a regular reader then you'll be used to reading my running ups and downs.. However, they have now hit a new low.... or maybe it's not a low but a recognition of a longer term underlying 'issue'. Post marathon it's been easy to avoid running, citing my injury needed rest and later that… Continue reading Is it time to just quit?
First up, this post is REALLY off topic to what I usually write about and is based on nothing more than my own, limited, knowledge and opinions! Secondly, I think this topic is quite possibly a total can of worms and there will be arguments for and against.

I've been trying to reflect on what is really behind my seemingly unstoppable ability to self sabotage all and any… Continue reading If you always do what you’ve always done….

I would like to support this year by putting together, with your help, some sponsored Chemo Care pouches & delivering them… Continue reading Can you sponsor a chemo care pouch?
Earlier this year I decided to take the plunge and 'go decaff'. If I'm honest it was prompted by some dental treatment as well as the need to reduce my tea / coffee intake which was reaching ridiculous levels! Being an all or nothing person I went 'all' on this occasion and just stopped. Everything..… Continue reading Going Decaff…..
To say my relationship with running has been a bit hit and miss since Brighton would be a massive understatement. Having had a course of acupuncture which resulted in a huge reduction in pain from my Achilles as well as increased flexibility in my ankle, I expected just to lace up my trainers a trot… Continue reading Getting my run on (again)….
A beautifully made film showing how a suburban school has transformed its grounds to an extensive outdoor learning environment.
Fear not, this is not going to be a post about the well known 80's sit com. Personally I was never a fan anyway! Nope, this is a recap of a camping expedition we ventured on a couple of weeks ago. Okay, expedition might be over-egging the trip a tad but we went camping... In… Continue reading Hi De Hi Campers!
