Macabre Morris Dancing

This time last year, I was in Whitby with friends. We had rented a cottage in the seaside town.

Hard Brexit Happened … How was it for you?

So Brexit has happened. It’s been 4 years in the making … 4 years of a headache … 4 years of worry for people … and it’s still not complete.

Fungi Geocache

Trying out Tik Tok for the first time so I made this video. It was tough editing a rake load of footage into 15secs but a fun challenge in regards to having tight restrictions. I also felt it was a good opportunity to get back into the fun playfulness of geocaching. I haven’t had a… Continue reading Fungi Geocache
