Do you have a favourite t-shirt you no longer wear but can’t bear to part with? Why not upcycle it?
Have you ever watched one of those Facebook videos and saved it for later, only to forget all about it? Yep, me too.
Or I’ve gone back and looked and thought, “That’s too hard”. Continue reading Upcycling … The shirts off our backs
Dear Fellow Road User,
Yes, I know you’re a pedestrian and that I have to give way to you. Could I just suggest that you give me a chance to see you?

Dear Fellow Road User,
I’m more than happy to share the road with you and your push bike … as long as you obey the road rules too.
But when you come flying round the corner on the wrong side of the road and without a helmet, don’t look so surprised when I give you a filthy look. You’re lucky you didn’t get a ride in an ambulance … or a hearse. On most other days I’d have already been all the way over to the left ready to turn the corner and you’d have become my new bonnet emblem.
Don’t be in such a hurry to die.

This week’s challenge from The Daily Post is to post a photo of something narrow.
This road in Cornwall was narrow – but still just wide enough for a car to pass a large piece of machinery.

It’s very unusual for us to get rain at this time of year. But we’ve had lots of it over the last few days. Even the wind chime is dripping in detail.

The Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge was almost a bridge too far for me. It was cold, wet and windy. And a long way down. But I figured I might never be there again so I made myself do it.
Don’t let your fears stop you having a new experience.

Isn't it a nobby one, and just the proper style?
