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!
The sun sets on another week and it’s been an extra special one for our little blended family as we welcomed the safe arrival of another beautiful little grandchild. Our hearts are full and a wee tear shed when her middle name was named after Orkney Beef’s sister who died tragically many years ago. Welcome … More My Positives In Pictures – New Life
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. It starts with me ordering all the ingredients in the entire world and leaving him to … More My Positives In Pictures – Keep Smiling Through

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
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
