Celebrating

Happy Easter! We had some much needed holiday last week and had a fantastic time in the sunshine.

Sacrifice and frustration

I’ve been asked a lot recently how it is going without a car, and honestly it is mostly great.

Exciting news in the last 24 hours though… I am going to join with my good friend Ed and a group ofContinue reading “#TeamKip Cycling Challenge”

One link in particular, in the monthly email update from Wild Christian (part of A Rocha UK – highly recommend – you can find out more and sign up here), caughtContinue reading “1,000 hours outside”
