October 15th – Autumn day….

A fantastic afternoon on the golf course with 3 mates in the autumn sunshine. Well my golf wasn’t fantastic, but the scenery was. The trees are definitely turning colour and leaves falling, making it difficult to find balls that have strayed off the fairway. Because of changes in the length of daylight and changes in temperature, leaves stop their food-makingContinue reading “October 15th – Autumn day….”

October 1st – Irish Gulls…..

How do you know they were Irish I hear you ask? Well, this morning I was sat on my spin bike at the local gym, warming up prior to a class. The bikes have been moved into one of the undercover tennis courts to comply with covid safety measures, and after a few minutes IContinue reading “October 1st – Irish Gulls…..”

September 26th – Walking

We went for a lovely walk in the New Forest today. It is great to get out in the fresh air and take in our beautiful countryside. We were scheduled to visit the Brecon Beacons this weekend, but alas, Covid-19 put an end to that, so we took a little drive to Hampshire. It isContinue reading “September 26th – Walking”

September 7th – Park run

Our 4 legged children wasn’t sure about being held by this statue, erected to celebrate the park runs held here. I used to run until my knee decided to play up. I really miss the physical and mental benefits of running, but have found that spin classes give me the same buzz and doesn’t damageContinue reading “September 7th – Park run”

August 26th – When in Cornwall…..

A pasty must be sampled…. We went on one of our favourite woofer walks, an easy circular walk starting in Mawgan Porth, and heading in land to St Mawgan, with the customary stop for coffee on the footpath and the lunch at The Falcon Inn in St Mawgan. Cornish pasties originated as portable lunches for tinContinue reading “August 26th – When in Cornwall…..”

August 14th – Snack time

I love this time of year because mother nature provides snacks for me whilst walking the 4 legged children, however, I need to be quick before they grab them before me…. The Flatties in particular are very fond of blackberries, and we always laugh at them sniffing the berries before carefully picking the ripe onesContinue reading “August 14th – Snack time”

July 29th – This way Dad!

This time last year we came home with this nutter. We have owned many different breeds over the years, including a number of spaniels (renowned for their mad characteristics), but Alfie (a Large Munsterlander) is in a different league. It is difficult to summarise in words, but i’ll give it a go ….. Gentle giant;Continue reading “July 29th – This way Dad!”

July 27th – Double rainbow

The weather was a little unpredictable when we played golf this afternoon, and got caught by a shower or 2 but it could have been worse and we did get to experience a double rainbow. Many believe, from a spiritual perspective, that a double rainbow is all about new beginnings and transformations. Apparently, when aContinue reading “July 27th – Double rainbow”

July 21st – First spin in 6 months

Before our European trip I took 4/5 spin classes a week, but obviously that stopped whilst traveling and then we got home all gyms were closed As mentioned in previous posts, gyms have been hit hard financial, and so it’s great to see them being able to reopen and rebuild their businesses. It did comeContinue reading “July 21st – First spin in 6 months”
