OnePlus featured a photograph form my photography Instagram account in their campaign to promote the OnePlus 5. (This is different from the activity where they illustrate my photos taken with the OnePlus 5.) Anyway I was very pleased to have received recognition for my photography. It's a product shot but one I'm very happy with and love … Continue reading Social media. The highs and the lows.
This weekend we continued our traditional festive meet up at Waddesdon Manor.... I'm not a huge fan of Lord Rothschild's taste in art but at least he's supporting such talents. Each year Waddesdon has a different theme and this years was about Light which was interesting and included tubular lighting, … Continue reading Christmas at Waddesdon Manor
I should have guessed today's run would be tough and I was right. Following all the work we did to get the house straight with the renovations, I felt more than a little tired and sore. Moving new furniture up two stories, dismantling and removing old furniture then rearranging everything can be a tiring process! … Continue reading The Runners Reward

Thankfully iSmoothRun and my iPhone do not … Continue reading The Garmin took so long to find a signal it tried to switch off!

I have been using many apps for a long time and have reviewed lots of … Continue reading The Fitness Bug
On Saturday Richard and I went on a long over due trip to Minsmere. Minsmere is a RSPB reserve and is an area of immense beauty about an hours drive from our home. For our first outing to Minsmere we decided to take the Coast walk which is around 3.5K in length. We are both … Continue reading Minsmere
Google Glass... I'm not convinced. Mainly cause I couldn't get them to work... But at least we all look like a tit or a glasshole whilst wearing them.
This run was different, this run was not what either I nor Enda expected and this run was tough! Things I have learnt following todays run:- Don't plan a run on or near to the longest (and hottest) day of the year. We believed as this was a forest run it would be covered. Only about 40% … Continue reading Hatfield Forest 10+K – 1:08:39
