Lost in the Woods

I went off exploring today. One positive from staying within the 5km where I live is finding new places, or exploring old places.

Sunday Thoughts

It feels like the 786th edition of Sunday Thoughts. So here we go, I’m just going to launch straight in. We had a massive storm over the last couple of days and part of me wonders if it’s because things are ‘getting back to normal’. I’ll have to watch myself or I’ll turn into a […]
