Sometimes motivation is in short supply. It’s 5.30am and it’s definitely one of those times. The house is cold and it’s pouring down with rain outside. Today I’ve got to travel by car and therefore whether I like walking in the rain or not I simply don’t have the option – unless I feel up … More Sleeves

Symonds Yat

I hadn’t intended today to be a trip down memory lane – but quite unexpectedly it was. My regular twalking buddy had suggested that we go for a walk around Symonds Yat after she’d been exploring there herself recently – and since I’m no longer one to pass up an opportunity for a walk in the … More Symonds Yat

Pumpkins Deli

It’s been a busy week – and after a very relaxing Bank Holiday weekend I’ve spent the last few days mostly catching up on things that I didn’t do whilst I was engaging in my epic blogging marathons – as well as trying to increase my walking.

Nerd things

Maybe it’s an age thing or maybe it’s a ‘skinny’ thing but these days when I look out of the window and see snow my heart completely sinks. Another day where I can’t feel my fingers beckoned yesterday and I had to cancel my plans for a walk in the countryside with a fellow Slimming … More Nerd things
