My New Year Tradition.

I have a New Year tradition which started about 7 or 8 years ago. A friend and I pick a date in January and head off on a walk, wander or if we’re feeling brave, a hike. It started with a blustery climb up Pen-Y-Ghent back in 2011 (I think). It was blowing a gale,…… Continue reading My New Year Tradition.

(and when I say ‘Our Summer’ I mean ‘My Summer’ because we all know that if Chris and Christopher were left to sort it we would be doing nothing… or maybe we’d be playing Fortnite, eating cheese and drinking tea…)   Last year I was rubbish with the Summer planning, I thought we could wing…… Continue reading Our Summer
