31 days…

There are 31 days in January; 31 alcohol-free days. Not that I'm thinking about it much ūüėČ I've done Dry Jan before, but not for a few years. So here are my thoughts as it draws to its merry close.... Continue Reading →

Out with the old…

New Year, new kit... well a few items anyway. All purchases were from H and M¬†. I've previously found their sports wear really hard wearing and comfortable and what they have always looks so cool. I really could do with... Continue Reading →
