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.

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.

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
Nothing smacks of Monday morning like being woken to the sound of your husband barfing up in the bathroom. Poor Orkney Beef had woken with a sick bug and he didn’t do it quietly. Aren’t I the lucky one? In all honesty, I’ve mentioned before that I have a very debilitating sickness phobia called Emetophobia. … More My Week In Pictures – Surviving, Smiling, Capturing Joy
