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!
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!
I’ve been in Orkney for over 11 years and this week I believe I witnessed the best sunrise ever.

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
f someone had told me a year ago I would be spending a Sunday afternoon in November sea swimming in a bright yellow swimsuit I would say they were mad. But it turns out I’m the mad one because I’ve done well over 200 and loved every one of them. Embracing a crazy new challenge was the best thing I ever did … More My Week In Pictures – Find Your Thing And Love It.
My heart really is so full when I look at my children and when I get the chance to be with them. This time next week they will both be gone again but at least Chr***m*s is just around the corner. ❤ … More My Week In Pictures – A Heart Full of Love
Some weeks are good, and some weeks are gooder. Although it was a week off work, for reasons I will later explain it ended up being busier than ever and the reason I took time off (to put huge effort into getting a book together to something more ready for publishing) was never achieved. However, … More My Week in Pictures – New Dawn, New Life
