Today I set myself a challenge to ride my bicycle 10 miles to visit a National Trust property called Godolphin. I researched a route that was on minor roads and checked it all out on dear old Google maps streetview - which gave me some definite... Read more

More of the same? But, oh, so lovely and SO good to get out into the countryside. This was a fabulous walk - lots of really steep hills, lovely green fields shining in the sunshine, the sea sparkling, lovely old granite stiles, wild flowers, b... Read more

I've been consistently logging my weight on the tracker for the past couple of months - and I can see that my fluctuation is regularly about 2-3lbs - it doesn't go higher, or lower. It's helpful for me to see that - it's normal for body weight... Read more

Today I woke to a t-shirt weather kind of a day, and sunshine. And I decided to go out and do a guided walk (on my phone) which started and ended at the end of the road where I live! I have an app which I really love, called iWalkCornwall ... Read more
