Love, coffee

A two coffee day. Treat! My excuse was the hike was exhausting.

Table. Perfect for beer pong. Apparently.

A circle walk up and along the Ridgeway and back from the awesomely named Honey Street. We saw two other walkers on the route (excluding the canal bit which was heaving). But then it was blowing an absolute hoolie. Lovely. As always, thanks chaps, a most excellent strole.

London, Again





I used to do this 3 or 4 times a week. Now it's 3 or 4 times a year. Paddington to Dean Street via Hyde Park. It felt quieter than Wallingford. Actually, it was market day in Wallingford and I'm pretty sure Wallingford was busier.

During the storm

A wet and wind blown Ewok

Field walls

If "walks" was a series then there would be more than a few posts in it.

Welsh Motorcycles

Sky, sand and (Welsh) motorcycles

Enjoying a quiet spot out of the wind along the harbour wall, reading random stats about the carbon impact of everything, when a group of very friendly Welsh motorcyclists arrived looking for a spot to park.

How could one say no?



In Mum's lovely garden.

Night out

Dinner out

I know how to treat a girl: out for a dinner date.

Takeaway pizza and a quiet but windy spot on a hill with a view. 10 points for the view, not so many for everything else.

Smallest House

Smallest house in Padstow?

Possibly the smallest house in Padstow.

Under the table

Something interesting under the table

There was something extra under the table. Took a while to spot it.

Big Day


Happy birthday beautiful.

Snow in April? Proving that it's never a bad day to ride.

Pausing for the view


I tried to make it look like I'd stopped for the view. More like I'd run out of puff. Up hill, in slippy snow, with a demister failure with my spex.

Garden Evolved


The garden has changed. Controversial I know, but the boys claim to prefer it as it was.

Cue silence at the dinner table.

Opening Up, Slowly

Lovely time with the S's — as lock down opens up, slowly, slowly slowly…
