Beginning 2018….

…with hopefully a few more posts than last year.

I have struggled to maintain the blog for various reasons and I dont want to do it just for doing it’s sake. I am not going to set a target, I am not going to fret, I will just pop in a few posts when there is something worthy to report in.

2017 was another tough year but thankfully over and looking on the up as 2018 is underway. I am still cycling but actually walking as well. I’ve even roped the other half into the walking lark and of course we share adventures with Barney the dog. I am planning a few camping trips when and where possible but not going to stress about timetables. Lets see how it goes. The cycling is still going so am fairly happy that I am managing to get out and get meaningful exercise on several fronts.

Possibly no French adventure this year but maybe a Scotland trip instead, all depends on time and opportunity. We tend to fit in things on the ad-hoc basis and last minute so we’ll see what happens. Work is crazy busy but when is it not? The kids are getting older and my eldest is doing his A-levels now so times are changing and I am moving into another age-band to boot. I dont feel older just slightly less sprightly and slightly more creaky!

I will also look to add pictures more during the course of this year and so rely less on long wordy ruminations. I dont mind if no-one reads this much as I have kind of realised these days that I write for myself first and for others second. An electronic diary so I can look back on it from time to time. Anyway, enough for now, lets just see when the next post is.

      cheers Mark. I have decided its definitely more for me and the family and so sporadic might be the best way of describing my activity! 🙂
