Since Easter, when James experienced real rock for the first time, he’s been desperate to go ‘proper’ climbing again. Given where we live, this can only really be achieved by making a weekend of it, which provided a great excuse to spend the May Bank Holiday weekend in the Peak District and catch-up with some friends who also climb.
You may remember Corwin's passion for Monster trucks? And his love of tractors? Well, who would have thought those two would actually meet in the world's most powerful motorsport - Tractor Pulling!
Now, I am a fresh coffee snob so how we have managed to end up living in the most coffee shop deprived area in the country I have no idea! It is not uncommon for us to drive an hour for a day trip but have a favourite coffee destination at the end!

We are having stunning October Scottish weather for a change!

The weather is improving, and Little Brother and I have been on some short journeys on the tandem. Last week, I was trying to convince him to go on a longer trip, and he was quite happy to do this… especially if there was a pub involved.
