Caernarfon Castle

We went to Caernarfon Castle on Saturday. I’d ran past the castle recently on my Coast Path run, but hadn’t been in it for ages – probably since I was Morgan’s age. It’s still as impressive as ever and I just wanted to run around the corridors and up the towers like a big kid...

Converse All Star Toes

Here’s the latest design for my toes. Thanks to Anna’s handiwork and Morgan’s idea I currently have Converse All Star toes. It’s like wearing a cult pair of shoes on my feet even when I’m barefoot. Morgan has the same design on his toes at the moment as well. Good to see that he is...
