More treasure

Carrying on from yesterday’s theme I found these wonderful memories with my son and the treasure we found when out Christmas shopping. The steps and fitness stats aren’t epic but remember this was just an average Sunday doing chores and the Fitbit can only show part of the health story. Much gets missed and can’t be recorded yet.

Finding treasure

The photos here are about the great deals and finds you can get by stepping outside and exploring. The summer for me was all about boot sales because many are I. The country in the middle of a field. So I get to shop in the English country side. This time of year it’s more about Christmas fayres and the …

If you want to create your dream lifestyle it’s really not that hard but it does take work and it is possible. You might think that the dream of a healthy happy life isn’t open to you but it is. For the same reason that a Lion doesn’t ponder its health as long as it just gets on being a Lion …

House of cards: My thoughts

I love all the shows and I can’t wait to listen to the audio book (I don’t have time to actually read it :-)). I’m still getting to grips with how the US version ended in season 3. It wasn’t as clear cut and dramatic as the british version but I’m not sure that really matters. I still can’t wait …

The mansion at Bletchley Park

The day I learned my grandad worked with a genius

It’s not everday that you find out that your grandad worked alongside a world renowned genius.

Not in an obvious way because plenty of people in the UK wouldn’t know where it is …

Parent workouts: Christmas lights switch on

Last weekend I had begun to fully appreciate just how much a special family moment can be a parent workouts because we were at the MK official christmas lights switch on which was1-2 hours of carrying the wee man. It may not sound much and you may wonder why the carrying is necessary but everyone was standing and had kids on their …

Parent workouts

So you are a parent, you have no free time on your hands, probably little money and you are always tired. Yet somehow some bright spark decreed that getting fit can only be done either 1) In a big building that you have to pay lots of money to enter and then do stuff that makes you sweat. You will spend …
