It has been so rainy here, and it's getting a bit cold. So I am going back in my mind to our April trip to the winterless north. Last travelblog we had spent a night at Omapere after a drivey sort of day, which concluded with a sundown swim. ... Read more

I got in touch with the FitBit folk. They suggested I try to sync my FitBit down in the garden. So I went down to where I thought I had lost it, and Lo, it tried to sync to my iPhone. I knew it was somewhere nearby, but where? Three huge fa... Read more

Even though it is early in the morning, I had eight hours sleep last night. This is pretty much unheard of for me. How did I do it? I simply went to bed very early. I was exhausted from work. On getting home, did ten minutes on my mini tra... Read more
