Arran adventures

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

Honestly – I promise, I am still here. Still alive, and still kicking. Excuses to hand, let me get them out of the way …. we moved house, the internet was up, then down, an now up again – for now  at least. But at the weekend Ali and I headed overseas – aboard the […]

A week in the Aguilas sunshine

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

I’m back! – Home AND writing something on my wesbite …. apologies for such a time lag in the updates. No excuses, but I just got home this morning to the, ahem shall we say, not so sunny Shire. However, it is not bothering me, as we just had 8 cracking days of sunshine back in my old […]

The last week here

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Well I didn’t do as I said I would – and get a post up on Sunday about the week that was … and here we are on Wednesday already. Time seems to fly by, but that is no excuse. Here are some of the things I have been up to; A run with the […]

Saturday in the ‘Bosch

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

It’s been a week already since the 70.3 last weekend; how the time has flown by. I’ve been keeping myself to myself here in Stellenbosch since my wingman – Toby – has been missing in action whilst spending some time with his lovely fiancee. I’ll let him off! So I have been having some nice food, […]

Happy New Year 2010!

Friday, January 1st, 2010

Last night I had a very African experience – both culinary and cultural – whilst taking in the New Year. We had a large group meal at Moya, organised by Tim as an extension of their wedding celebrations. It was a lot of fun, and a very memorable and relaxed way to wind up 2009. […]

The day after

Monday, November 16th, 2009

I’ll take some inspiration from  Conrad here after his own World Championship experiences last month – sometimes you give you’re all and it’s just not enough. I’ll write more about my thoughts on the race soon, probably once I am home in Stirling. However, for this evening at least, where there might not be a top […]

Lunch with ‘The Ox’ (aka Nick)

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

Nick Saunders has been in town a couple weeks … me just about one. He is staying down on the coast in Cardiff (slightly prettier than the Welsh version in my opinion) so we are a little too far apart to manage any coordinated training together. However, that didn’t stop us managing to sit down […]

Lunch today was….

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

….Pancakes. It would be safe to say that they rank up there in my top five favourite foods, I just try not to eat them too often, for I know I will end up wanting them everyday – especially here in the States. I’d just tucked away a solid 5k swim with the masters swim squad […]
