This is Robyn the third participant in this little project. Today she came home from School eager to make a cup of tea for myself and Chloe to earn herself extra credits at school. I certainly wasn’t complaining. No Milk. One Sugar. [..]

In October 2007 I embarked on a creative self portrait project that lasted 365 days. My aim was to improve my photography and give myself a vent for my stiffled creativity. I accomplished these goals and actually learnt a fair bit more [..]

Robyn and I just had our first try at filleting some mackerel…we’re certainly going to need more practice and a sharper knife. Chloe hates fish and hid in the other room holding her nose trying not to vomit. Not sure Robyn grabbing [..]

Well a lovely 8 mile run this morning. Not quick but pleasant and two of those miles I switched onto the pebble beach to mix things up a little. Since this time last week @endomondo tells me i’ve covered 32.11 miles which [..]

Yesterday was a good day. No day job work and apart from dealing with a really random photo sale out of the blue it was just me and Robyn chillaxing. We went for a cycle ride and ended up in starbucks (not [..]

Managed to sleep in today and not get out for a run until much later. The Sun has also returned to Weybiza this morning and it was hot hot hot along the seafront. The summer season is in full flow here and [..]

So today I ran home from work again and stretched the route out a little to make it 10 miles. It wasn’t lightning quick but it was quicker than the 1st (and only) time I completed the 10 mile distance before. In [..]

Ran 8 miles this afternoon from Maumbury Rings in Dorchester down to Ali gardens in Weymouth. I was joined by the infamous Ben French (from Shooter, Hustle and 15 other bands). It was a nice run and we took it steady. I [..]

Today I had a great run. My aim was to make sure I forgot that my endomondo app had a pause button and that my smartphone didn’t have a camera (see my last post for reasons). I accomplished both and managed to [..]
