Games

Games of Yesteryear I’m old enough to remember the first arcade games. Things like Pacman, Donkey Kong and Track and Field that first appeared in pubs, clubs and for me the Ice Rink in the 1980’s. You’d insert your money into the slot over and over again trying in vain to get the high score. They...

Optical Illusions in the Garden – Honey I Shrunk the Kids

We convinced Morgan to get off his computer one sunny day in the holidays. With his friends James they were banished to the garden to take some optical illusion photos. They had a good time out there once they were actually out in the real world. Here are some of their photos.

Maximising your Time on the Water / Trails / Slopes

We’re all busy people and there are never enough hours in the day to fit everything in. I think I do better than most people though. Despite having a young family, a job, running my own business and all the usual chores to do I still mangae plenty of recreation time by maximising my time....

Summer Sailing at Home

After a busy weekend away in North Wales Surf Skiing, Mountain Biking and Running along the Coast Path it was nice to be back at home. The busyness continued of course and summer was being kind to us. Wall to wall sunshine on Monday had me out mowing the lawn and gardening once the indoor...

Adventures in North Wales

Surf Skiing in Conwy I arranged to meet some fellow surf-skiers in Conwy on Saturday. I thought I could make a weekend of it. Surf Ski somewhere a little different for a change, do some mountain biking and then sleepover in the camper and continue my Coast Path run project on the Sunday. The Facebook...

Tough Mudder – A spectators perspective         

So, Alan had signed up to do a Tough Mudder with one of my friends Rebecca. There was quite a lot of information out there on what to expect for the competitors but not much for the spectators so I wasn’t sure what it would be like. I am used to watching/supporting at triathlons and...

Beach Fun

More beach fun after school at Borth. New Flip Flops, New Surf Ski, New Paddles, Super Sunny Beach, Crazy Warm Waters. If only all Tuesdays were like this. A little more practice on my ski. It’s still very wobbly and still difficult to remount. My chest still hurts too though. Maybe a couple of sessions...

Tough Mudder

Well we did it… Completed the London West Tough Mudder and raised loads of money for Diabetes UK. It was all Rebecca’s fault! She has Type 1 Diabetes and talked me into doing it with her and a couple of her friends. I didn’t really know that much about the event itself when I agreed...

Running, Surfing, Sky’s Garden Nursery & Bike Riding – Bank Holiday Fun from Ynyslas

We didn’t really have much planned for Bank Holiday Monday. For a start I kind of forget about Bank Holidays as I don’t usually ‘go into’ work on a Monday but work from home. However, Anna and Morgan were off so it seemed as though we should do something. Running around Ynyslas I was up...

Dyfi Estuary Adventure

As it was a ‘rest day’ on Saturday I decided to head out for a little Dyfi Estuary adventure on my Surf Ski. High tide was around 1:30pm at Ynyslas and therefore around 2pm 6 miles further upstream at Glandyfi. Winds were fairly light and mainly southerly and the sun was out. The weather looked...
