I’m afraid, dear readers, that my battery has run a little flat. What with the loss of a very dear friend in January
A few weeks ago I was a guest on the podcast for the lovely Karen of the SwimWildPodcast. I discovered that I have a great face for podcasts, a great voice for writing and I can say the word ‘just’ more times in one hour 6 minutes than you can say in a lifetime. If … More I’m in a podcast!
I went viral this week, but not in an internet way. In a sore throat, go home two hours after arriving at work and sleep for three days way. It’s amazing how the mystery virus (I’m sure the doctor said there were over 200 types) can knock you sideways and make you sleep for hours. … More My Week In Pictures – Born To Be Wild
We are nearly half way through the year in an almost impossible speeding passage of time. I know I must be getting old because I’m forever questioning where the time goes. But seriously – how did we end up in June! Weather has largely been disappointing in the last fortnight. On Tuesday a group of us huddled … More My Week In Pictures – Sunsets and Scares
I’m afraid I’ve killed the weather. It all started last week when I waxed lyrical about what amazing weather we’d been having in Orkney and I woke up the next day to fog so thick you could barely see the hand in front of your face! It’s been pretty dire all week. There’s still need to emerge … More My Week In Pictures – Getting Your Brave On

There’s not better Sunday evening than one where you don’t have to go to work on the Monday. Thanks to a Bank Holiday I’m living my best life right this second as I can look forward to going to bed and not setting the alarm. This doesn’t happen often! To top off the joy it’s the … More My Week In Pictures – Looking for Sunbeams
A transformation is taking place in me that I’m loving. You may remember last December I decided to try and do 49 challenges for being 49. Some more taxing than others, and this led to sea swimming in January, which led to sea swimming every week which led to photos like these being taken of … More My Week In Pictures – Smiles and Sunsets
I hate to be a cliche but Spring has finally sprung. I can’t say we reached the dizzy heights of basking in the bank holiday sunshine like the rest of the UK but it has been quite nice today. That’s as far as it goes really but any sunshine is welcome. Stromness really lends itself to sunshine … More My Week In Pictures – Sea, Shells and Spring
