Heart Attack Medical Records

People have been asking for updates on my heart attack recovery progress. There isn’t a huge amount to report here yet. As you can imagine, I haven’t really been doing much so don’t have much to blog about. I have been chilling on the patio in the sunshine though. I am feeling a little better...

Stretching the Weekend

Having worked additional hours on Wednesday and Thursday I’d hope to finish early on Friday thereby stretching out the weekend a little. As is often the case things cropped up at work and I ended up staying there until later than usual anyway. So much for my plans! Not to worry though we still managed...

Sunny Sunday

Rain at Last

That didn’t really feel like a bank holiday weekend. I think its the fact that things still aren’t back to normal due to Coronavirus. We can’t complain though as it had everything we needed. Cycling, running, kayaking, swimming in crystal clear waters, a walk at RSPB Ynyshir, windsurfing, a Spicery meal and some rain at...

Far out on the Sandbanks

Anna and I went for a low tide walk at the weekend. It had been a lovely day so I’d spent most of it in the garden. The clear up continued and things are now ready for summer. As well as tidying up and weeding the borders I cut back lots of shrubs. I also...

Gourmet Dining in Lockdown

Our (now not so) recent culinary experiences at River Cottage and Ynyshir Hall had us inspired to visit some other top UK restaurants. We had planned to visit L’enclume in the Lake District but lockdown put an end to that for a while. We’ve had a few gourmet dining experiences thanks to Ynyshir Hall takeways...

Power!!

The weekend just gone was all about power! A lack of electrical power some of the time, and plenty of power from the Forces-of-nature. The Forces-of-Nature Saturday saw strong wind here at Ynyslas. 50-60mph all day long and with temperatures close to freezing it was quite an adventure just going outdoors. Anna and I took...
