The Underground Busker

Life is certainly fast paced in London. Of course, I knew this already.

My Sourdough Journey: Chapter Eleven – A New Recipe and Old Time Favourites

Breakfast was my all time favourite meal of the day and that meant fruit. A big bowl of fruit or a mammoth smoothie. Sometimes I even went to bed with a feeling of I can’t wait to get up in the morning and have breakfast.

My Sourdough Journey: Preface

Coming to a new place is never easy. It usually takes some time to get settled in and to establish a workable routine. It’s been several weeks now since I arrived in Hay-on-Wye; and sometimes I feel like I’ve got it all ‘sussed’, and another time things feel as if they’re coming apart at the seams. But not to worry, that’s what life is all about. The race is not to the swift . . .. I am therefore a few weeks behind schedule in getting this blog up and running. But I’m pleased to say it feels like things are ticking over nicely in this respect now.

Now, if you’re going to come along on this journey with me, I trust that you will be entertained, that you will learn something new, that you will be encouraged and inspired, whether to follow your dreams, or to take steps to improve your health, or in some other way, whoever you are, whatever you do and wherever you find yourself on this exciting journey that is called life.

I invite you to delve right into Chapter One – About me, and please feel free to get in touch or leave your comments at any time. Here’s wishing you Godspeed as we journey together and launch out into the deep . . .
