My favourite way to activate the week is and early Monday morning swim in the sea at one of my favourite spots. This week was no different and I made my usual jaunt down to Stromness to join my friend Anna in the water. Chatting, avoiding jellyfish and catching the awesome morning light is a … More My Week In Pictures – Keep On Dancing
And all of a sudden it was September. How did that happen? In the strangest time of my life it feels like it’s gone on forever whilst simultaneously feeling like it’s flying by. Personally, I’m in such a season of transition in all aspects of my life and I’m leaning into that and enjoying the … More My Pandemic In Pictures – Becoming a Swimsuit Model. EEK!
Back in March when lockdown began I remember thinking I might be able to do a book launch in June when things have returned to normal. Now we are in the last week of August I can’t believe how stupid I was. Life has changed so much and it’s been an enormous season of change … More My Pandemic In Pictures – Recalibrating

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
After banging on about turning 50 for the last year you’ll be jolly pleased to know that I will bang on no more as it’s finally happened! My banging on about wild swimming, however, will not cease, and I’m not sorry. I managed to milk every ounce out of birthday celebrations and feel thoroughly loved … More My Week In Pictures – 350 In Dog Years!
‘Ah, you’re wearing a tiara’ Said The Mothership approvingly as I went to collect her for an evening out. Well no, it’s just a blingy headband, but I like her style and from now on I’ll call it my tiara and wear it like a boss every time, because ‘you can never be overdressed or overeducated’ (Oscar Wild) … More My Week In Pictures – Lego and Tiaras
I’ve been in Orkney for over 11 years and this week I believe I witnessed the best sunrise ever. It took me ages to reach my swimming destination because I was continually pulling the car over to stop and take another photo which I’m about to spam you with. See for yourself, you can thank … More My Week In Pictures – Sunrise and Sparkle
