Under fourteen

Sometimes I have a really distorted view of what I do well and what I’ve not done so well at. Often I find myself wracked with guilt over daft things such as a feeling that I haven’t walked far enough or a perception that I’ve overeaten when I should have just nibbled a carrot – … More Under fourteen

Snowdrops in Hatton

I’m a little achey after the up and downhill of the end to end walk in Malvern on Sunday.

In the past I’ve tied myself in knots wondering what to make for these mornings in … More Free food February

Appetite disturbed

As is typical when it comes to the best laid plans of mice and men the only thing that can be considered a certainty in life is uncertainty.
