Things To Do Before I Turn 50

  (also known as my "TA-DA" list as opposed to a "to do" list) It was my 49th birthday a few days ago and this got me thinking. Any birthday that ends with a zero always feels a bit like milestone or a landmark and, when I hit the big "five-o" in 2022, I don't want huge parties or celebrations but I would like to have ticked a few things off my low-effort bucket list.   I see these things as a way to improve my mental and physical health, plus a few slightly off-the-wall experiences that would make for great memories.  Start running again and include the following: Lead a C25K group again  Participate in parkrun EVERY week where possible  Visit local landmarks whilst running  Train for a long race - building up from 5k > 10k > 10 miles > half marathon, with a couple of longer trail races mixed in  Lose a lot bit of weight Post more on Instagram or give the blog a bit of a reboot < ongoing Look at new a career path or additional income stre

The Gallery : My Blog

I was stumped this week when I read the prompt.  My Blog.  I had already encapuslated "my blog" when I had taken pictures for the Gallery prompt "Self Portrait" back in May last year.  Then I saw something on Twitter and had a bit of a brainwave.

Welcome to the back of my blog.  The inner workings.  Sort of...


First I start with a blank page... and then, my brain ticks away.  From the back of the blog the posts are inserted in draft format, tweaked and edited, put on hold for a bit sometimes, complimentary images are inserted, everything perfected and then they are published.  You just get to see the good stuff.
