Sometimes it can be difficult to write sensitively when there is so much global difficulty going on. I really don’t know what the answer is. In my corner of the internet I’ve always written about the minutiae of my day, shared stories of my life in Orkney and the ups and downs of life. Due … More My Week in Pictures – Treasure Hunting
Can someone tell me how you stay positive in a pandemic when Orkney throws you this massive curveball in May?
‘Where do we keep the baking beans?’ is not what I expected to be woken up to from a Sunday nap, but that’s my new reality. Orkney Beef has taken to baking to keep himself amused and bankrupt us.

Quarantine is tough on everybody and we are … More My Positives In Pictures

I took a little break from blogging following a serious case of overwhelming after an exceptionally busy Christmas and New year when my daughter was in hospital. Thankfully things have settled down a lot now and I … More Bouncing Back
At the end of a rollercoaster of a year, I always enjoy looking back before looking forwards. There would be no prizes for guessing what the highlight of my 2019 has been as wild swimming started as a one-off and quickly became a life-changing habit. I’ve swum in all sorts of places with an enormous … More My Year In Pictures – Riding The Waves
