Blustery morning walk

I have got out of the habit recently of going for my morning walk and I woke up this morning realising just how much I had missed it! I don’t mind admitting that I was in a bit of a grump yesterday – it has not been an easy week and I was generally feeling…

That was January 2019

Well I blinked and that was the first month of 2019 done and dusted! It was a strange month in many ways as it was our first proper taste of having an empty nest. Our son Tom moved to Bristol at the end of November last year but it wasn’t long before our daughter Reya…

Hello 2019 – better late than never!

News Years resolution 1 – stop procrastinating. Well that failed spectacularly – January 14th and I still haven’t published a single Blog post. I’ve been scribbling things down but until now nothing has made iit onto the virtual page. So here goes – hello 2019! If you look back on this Blog you will see…

roast sweet potato with feta and avacado

Monday’s good intentions….

My daughter always teases me about the fact that I always start a diet on Monday. Just as I always vow stay wine until Friday, sort out my In Box and my In Tray, start that patchwork quilt that I’ve bought the material for, renovate the old picture frames I bought at the auction a…

Dryathlon day 5: I poured some wine!

Yes I poured some red wine – it smelt so lovely! But don’t worry not a drop passed my lips instead it went in with the roast lamb where after a couple of hours it turned into a lovely rich gravy! This was the hardest day of the Dryathlon so far. I do so love my…

Walking pixels: 30 April

After the awful weather of late this morning was sublime.  Warm,  sunny, the sky larks soaring.  I also saw my first swallow of the spring but I’ve yet to hear a cuckoo.  Today’s images are processed with a photoshop  action that I’m refining at the moment which will hopefully be available very soon for download.

Walking pixels: 26 April

After the thunder and lightening and torrential rain of yesterday, today has a more sunshine and showers feel about it.  There was quite a lot of blue sky for my walk this morning – and more than the odd puddle.  It seems to be warming up a little bit too – but not quite enough…

April showers

Walking pixels: 24 April

Yuk what horrible weather we are having at the moment. Rain, rain and then more rain!  Undeterred I strode out for my walk this morning – as you can imagine there were no Blue Skies today – just grey and gloom.  Still I managed to fire off a few quick pics on my mobile and…
