Hourglass For Tea – A New Take

Green tea, black tea, white tea: with the Paradox TEA timer, preparing tea is transformed into an individual moment that makes steeping time fly by thanks to the paradox flow of the granulate – from the bottom up.


I bought one of these last week and it’s truly mesmerising – I will quite often just flip it over even when I don’t have tea in the pot (yea right).

My New Look

Return to running

Following my recent groin strain – stop sniggering at the back – that’s me back running again.

Slow and steady – but I never did run any other way !



So – back to Strathclyde parkrun this Saturday and more importantly – the MND Scotland fun run also in Strathclyde park on Saturday 16th May.

It’s a cause close to my heart and I will be fundraising for MND Scotland in memory of my brother Derek and my daughter Emma.

YouTube playlist – Birthday Number Ones

I decided to create a playlist that contained all of the number ones from my birthday over the years:

Some Good – Some Not So Good

What would your’s look like?

Time To Chill

Run done – check.
Breakfast eaten – check.
Spot by the pool – you tell me?


Running Again

I found a much shadier and scenic route for today’s run :


But I quickly realised why the local runners all stick to the main roads.


My slowest 5k in a long time. Mind you, according to my Fitbit I climbed the equivalent of 34 floors yesterday!

Well that was a first in a long time:

I went for a run

Yes it was only 5k
Yes it was slow
Yes it was uninterrupted
Yes my head was held high
Yes I smiled all the way

What I’m Reading – The Martian

It’s been a while since I found a true “can’t put down” book.

I have found one The Martian by Andy Weir:

The story of an astronaut left on Mars.
