Walking Photography Drawing Food
Over the past couple of years, with age creeping up on me like a huge shadow, I’ve become more aware of the importance of staying healthy. I’m not one of those who has suddenly turned into a gym freak, propping up the local bar with an orange juice and bronzed ‘look at me’ tan. It’s just that I have found a need to live more healthily.
I have already bored everyone with my walks around the local area, but I hope some of you have enjoyed them, well, I know you have because of the kind replies I get. My next plan is to add some if not all the local recipes I have come across since moving to Wales. In my humble opinion, they are too good to miss. There’s a lot of great, healthy meals, from breakfast to lunch to dinner and more. I’m already starting to feel hungry!
What I Blog
They say you should blog about what you enjoy and I do. Whether it’s photography, walking, drawing, food, music or staying healthy, I think I can say I blog about them all. I try to do it in a humorous way too, although it might be argued that it’s more humiliating than humorous!
I hope you look out for my recipes and they prove useful to you. I’m not an expert, in fact I’m no expert in anything. More a Jack of all trades. I doubt Gordon #*x”#*! Ramsey will have any worries over my blog, but if I can make one person happy, then to me that will be a success. Thank you for your continued support and taking the time to read.
