It’s strange how these things go… Some days you just can’t get anywhere near where you know you can be, some others you exceed your expectations by miles. I’ve not been sleeping particularly well this week. Often I’ve been quite … Continue reading

It was a bit of a chaotic trip to the pool today. I got halfway to the pool to find the road closed. No warnings or diversion signs or anything helpful like that beforehand 🙁 So, I had to turn … Continue reading
