Resolutions for 2016

A little late off the mark for new years resolutions?  Possibly.

But, post-Christmas is a good time to make bad decisions and 12 months is a long time to stick to a bad decision.   Who wouldn’t promise to eat more healthily, ditch the alcohol, run that extra mile?

A pause before making any decisions seemed like a good idea.

Besides, I enjoy my vices.  Life would be grey without the conversation with friends around a roaring pub fire over a beer. I want to add colour to my life, not take it away.

So, after some thought, here are my plans for the year ahead.

  1. Write more and take more photographs
  2. Under red-mist circumstances, count to 10 before I speak
  3. Be more tolerant

Camp cooking

I have my best night’s sleep under canvas, away from the distractions of the TV.  But all to often once the tent is up, stomachs rumble and a pub meal calls.

So whilst camping itself is a relatively inexpensive way to spend a night, the cost of eating out can change the holiday from cheap to very expensive.  And, what should be outdoor time becomes indoor time.

The bikes are unpacked and the tent is up.  Cracking open a beer and preparing grub feels like home.

Recipes adapted for the camp to follow.
