Covid-19 Coronavirus, Panic Buying and Self Isolation

I thought it was time to write a blog post about the Covid-19 Coronavirus if only so that if we are ever reading back about what was going on at this time in our lives we’ll have a record of what is by far the biggest news story at the moment. Things are changing on...

Real World Bike Ride and a Body on the Beach

A Busy Weekend as Usual It was a fairly standard weekend here with a surf ski paddle on Saturday morning, followed by a good Turbo Trainer session and then lots of time spent cleaning the van, cleaning windows and even having a quick inspection of the bees. It was good to get out on the...

Running around Trawsfynydd

Anna and I were heading out for the evening on Sunday, so I didn’t hang around long in Colwyn Bay after the races. I did however stop off for a run on the way home. I stopped at Trawsfynydd Lake as that was a good halfway marker on the drive and I’d never ran here...

Colwyn Bay TT – Last of the Season

We’ve been a bit unlucky this year with the Colwyn Bay Time Trial Series. The regular storms that always seem to have coincided with a weekend have meant that one or two of the planned races had to be first post-poned and then cancelled. To be honest I was kind of glad when they were...

Time for some Shopping

Well, Tuesday’s windsurf session didn’t quite go to plan. As I rigged my 5.7m sail I noticed a big rip in the top of it. By then I was already in my wetsuit, on the beach with all my kit rigged so I decided just to go with it anyway. It’s not ideal sailing with...

Chocolate Overload for Morgan’s Birthday

Somehow, Morgan is yet another year older and at 15 I’m not sure where all the time has gone. We decided to go a little OTT on the chocolate front for his cake this year. Anna baked a nice big Chocolate Celebration Cake for him and then made loads of lovely chocolate ganache using some...
