Lifestyle: Unplanned Time Off

Hey all! First off you may have noticed my domain name has slightly changed and that’s because a month ago or so, I locked myself out of my blog and couldn’t get back in. After much heartache and a few tantrums, I started up a new blog (copied and pasted everything) and entered into winding road of blogger’s block.

Anyway, I’m still alive! Lots has happened here like getting my new kayak, watching my puppy grow up (she’s 4 months old now)  and looking for somewhere new to live. I’m planning on jumping over from the Shropshire borders to the Welsh borders and I’ve only a few weeks left till my tenancy is up so it’s a bit of a mad rush here!

Spring is very much in flow and today I’ve been sniffing out some wild garlic whilst I take in the views of Rodney’s Pillar.  With a few nice days, it’s been nice to hop on to the bike and head back up to Coed Y Brenin as well as Kayaking along the Montgomery canal.

I’ve a few ‘days out’ kind of posts to put up this week and the plan is to get my new blog back on track!!!

Next weekend I’ve got a paddle boarding and a mountain biking session. Speaking of MB there’s a new website out which maps all of the Welsh MB routes which is pretty nifty!

Anyhow, I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to.

  1. Wondered what had happened to you, assumed it was the new pup running you ragged!!!! As for me, plenty of Dartmoor recently (have a couple of walks to put up), getting ready for Snowdonia at the end of May/early June!


      • Yes first time, staying in Betws y Coed (not going to pronounce it!!) planning on climbing either Moel Siabod, The Glyders or the Carnedds. Can’t decide at the moment, just hoping for at least one clear day. Really looking to get a feel of the place, took me 3 visits to the Lakes to climb Helvellyn so its as much about understanding and respecting the area as it is about scaling the heights. Have you been? Any tips?


      • The easiest way to say it – Betesy -e- coid (think coin but with a d). The Glyders are supposed to be a great area to explore, I’ve never done any of those tho they are on my to-do list. I can point you in the right direction tho to this awesome group which will be happy to share all of their tips.

        Yes, I’ve climbed a few which have been just awful and we’ve had to go back down half way – I’ve come to realise it’s not about getting to the top, it’s just ensuring you’re safe so respecting the elements is certainly sensible!

        Have a fantastic time and I’m looking forward to hearing all about it.
