On the first weekend in September I travelled to Wales for only the second time in my life (first time was ‘A’ level biology trip September 1993 – awesome by the way, in its own teenage way). This time I went with my husband and other couple. We drove from Edgware London at around 9ish and arrived at our campsite at Black Rocks Sands at two in the morning. We had just the most wonderful weekend. I am developing an insatiable love for the outdoors whatever the weather.

The picture I have chosen for the photo challenge ‘Waiting‘ is a picture of the little mountain train at Llanberis station that takes visitors up Mount Snowdon. On the day we went – the weather conditions were such that we could not ascend to the top but it was still a lovely journey anyway.



2016 has been quite a year for me. I got married and I turned 40. It has been a roller coaster. I have had to reflect on a number of things in my life. I will have to do things differently in 2017, because…

If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.

And I need new things.


Things have to change, as do I. I need to ask for more things. I need to have higher expectations for myself. I really need to start putting myself first and not feel guilty about it. It will not happen overnight but I need to take meaningful steps in the right direction.
