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
After another Groundhog Week in quarantine, here’s my round-up of positives from what otherwise is a horror show. If dogs could speak (I secretly believe they can) they would tell you that their quality of life has gone through the ceiling. I read of a dog breaking his tail he wagged it so much with … More My Positives In Pictures – Embracing Change
Hellooooo! Those of you that don’t follow my Facebook Page or Instagram Seasaltandsarah will be wondering what happened to me. 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
There were about a million stairs and I sounded like Darth Vadar by the time I reached the top but the view was worth it. It turns out I can go higher than a ferris wheel when it comes to lighthouses and although I felt a bit sick when I looked down I felt secure enough not to turn it into an absolute freakshow. … More My Week In Pictures – Status NO!
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
Swimming in the sea is now as natural to me as walking the dog. I have the occasional day off but I’m soon twitchy to go in again. Strangely, I love swimming in the dark with the pier lights or the moon as a gentle illumination. … More My Week In Pictures – Swimming In The Dark.
