I'm lucky to live in a small city: one where within a couple of streets from home there are open fields. Except that this open field will soon be 2,000 new homes. Eric Pickles decided that was a good idea.... Continue reading

Back in the saddle after a 10-day break – that's due to the general election, since I'm what's called a presiding officer (which means I'm in charge of a polling station). It's why I never express any political opinions on... Continue reading

I so enjoyed my ride from Dolgellau to Barmouth and back last year that I've made a return visit. And once again hiring a bike from Mike at Dolgellau Cycles. No sign of Mrs May on one of her walks,... Continue reading
