Another circular walk on Exmoor and this time it’s a classic, or the classic. Up Bossington hill.

Not by some valkyrie or eeauch.  But by some  Condescending men with Audis and shorts, coloured peach .   With […]

And I feel fine

As lockdown extends into its sixth week and tensions fray the isolated and fragile mind. As health care professionals die through the ineptitude of government.
