My daughter asked if we could go for a drive around the neighborhood tonight. Other than a few trips to the shop I hadn’t driven any significant distance since about a year ago. We drove for about an hour and a half, just around the local area. I had a burn up the ring roadContinue reading “I like driving in my car …”
I’ve been thinking about my mum today. She died in 2018 of old age. I was doing the 100 things list where you think about a subject and try to write 100 words or sentences to do with the subject. Repetition is allowed. As you get towards the higher numbers you dig deep into yourContinue reading “A poem for mother.”
I went into work today for the first time in about 6 weeks. I was meeting up with a colleague to go over what we need to do when we go back properly, most likely after Easter. It was good to chat and get back to some sort of familiar situation, if only for aContinue reading “Back to normal?”
I’ve spent the morning shooting air pistols as part of several online competitions. This comes off of the back of a month of practice with various pistols. I’ve fired over 700 shots whilst concentrating on different aspects of shooting. One of the stand out moments was getting my Luger replica out. This pistol is notContinue reading “Practice makes perfect (or thereabouts).”
Hard to believe it’s still February. I was working in our garden in my t-shirt, as t-shirted neighbors passed by, this morning. I was making a start on tidying up. I’d pruned a tree late last year but I’d left the wood to dry off a bit as it was hard to cut when freshContinue reading “Sunny Saturday!”
Thank goodness it’s Friday! Today just got away from me. I pottered about, did some sweeping up in the garden, put some laundry away and suddenly it’s tea time! I’m currently sat on the sofa with my wife and daughter watching Traffic Cops on the telly. Soon be bedtime!
I’ve shared a follower’s blog below. I’ve shared the post A Glimpse of Yosemite as it has some very nice photos of Yosemite national park in America. The blogger has other posts and photos of hikes they have done and I’ve enjoyed living vicariously through their posts. Go check them out.
Yosemite is far closer to me than most, if not all, of the national parks I have visited and written about in my blog. I’ve heard about its beauty and what deterred me from visiting was the millions of people frequenting this park on a regular basis. It’s like going to Disneyland and I couldContinue reading “A Glimpse of Yosemite”

I resolved to fire 50 pellets every day at 6 yards distance to try to improve my shooting. I’ve focused on various aspects of the shooting cycle such as trigger pull, breath control, psychology etc. I’ve managed to do it most days for about 30 days. Today I made a conscious effort to aim forContinue reading “Small steps, small victories, it adds up to something bigger than its parts.”
