A celebration of grapes at Dunleavy Vineyards | Recent work


That's me in the pic above, harvesting grapes. On an English vineyard. No, really it is.

How to exercise with an injury


Just before Christmas, I wrote a post about how I'd found a love of exercise. In that way the universe sometimes does when it's got half an ear on what you're saying, I woke up on New Year's Eve with the most incredible pain in my leg. I could barely walk.
