Month +31: Plague Vol. 2
Month +31: Plague Vol. 2 A second bout of the plague has set me back somewhat, but I won't be perturbed, London is 7 weeks away and I will be ready...
Month +30: January Resolve
We all know the feeling. the long nights and soggy weather stretch ahead of us endlessly, and we're feeling blue. But I'm grateful for where I am right now. Happiness isn't for people who need it, it's for people who want it.
Month +29: Crimbo Limbo
I'm really not sure what to make of 2022. It's been an odd one. One moment it was 40 degrees in England, and the next they were playing Sir Cliff in Marks and Spencer and selling Christmas themed party dips. Now we have arrived in Crimbo Limbo (that strange time between Christmas and New Year … Continue reading Month +29: Crimbo Limbo
Month +27: Seasonal Transitions
October is an important time of transition. This season why not interrupt your routine with something new. Everything we do that we that wouldn't ordinarily do provides us with a new perspective.

Devon is a long way from Staffordshire, but the 4-hour-plus car journey is a small price to pay. Life seems … Continue reading Month +23: Beyond the Trails
Month +22: So Far, So Good
31 days in, and I appear to have successfully detoxed from caffeine. I was well and truly settled into a routine of a mid-afternoon crash, followed by a nap and few cups of tea before bedtime, sleeping poorly, then re-booting myself the following morning to start the cycle again. I was clearly robbing Peter to … Continue reading Month +22: So Far, So Good
Month +21: Decaf, Anyone?
It's been a busy month. I've been on holiday, been to my first live music event in 4 years (hooray!) and my London marathon training has stared in earnest. My miles have gone up, Sunday long-runs are again a thing, and I'm feeling suitably tired - so much so in fact, that I forgot to … Continue reading Month +21: Decaf, Anyone?
