Thankfully Miss Lashes and Tech Support met up in Aberdeen the following day to head up to Orkney and my family is together and my heart is full. … More My Week In Pictures -Ups and Downs
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!
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.
It’s been a super exciting week with news I can’t wait to tell you. The book is happening After many years wishing, lots of people asking and a year where I’ve been writing and an increasing desire to get everything that’s in my head finally collated into a book, I have connected with a mentor … More My Week In Pictures – Watch This Space

”Can you just hold on one second?’ *drops landline phone* Two minutes later…. ‘Sorry, while I was talking to you I saw a postal van being lifted on to a boat and had to run and take a photo of it for the blog’ So this is what life is like for you if you’re … More My Week In Pictures – Island Life, Friendship and Global #Swimrise
It’s been another incredibly busy week and someone asked me recently how I fit it all in. I know what you’re all thinking. ‘I bet she has feral kids, beans on toast every night and a trashed house’ and to be honest you’re not far wrong. I long for life to slow down and was only … More My Week In Pictures -Fitting Two Weeks Into One.
Two things herald the arrival of Autumn. Hay bales in the field and the new season of Strictly. Neither disappointed this week. If I could bottle the mood of Friday 20th September I would, and I’d sell it and make a fortune.
