Remind me again why am I doing this?

Remind me again why I'm doing this?  Running I mean! I haven't written a post about just running since July last year but I have been running, on and off,  in the meantime.  The months after July were wet, miserable and cold.   I was also suffering from looking down the barrel of redundancy but …

Wordless Wednesday – demise of the bendy tree

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday  On this very spot used to stand my favourite tree, 'bendy tree' which I would silently greet every time I went out for a walk.  Today on my walk this pile of newly harvested trees was in its place.  The thing is that my bendy tree was a gum tree, not a pine …
