Day 2 of our New Forest adventure. We didn’t sleep well as a cow was yelling most of the night. Staring out on the bikes around 11 we headed north via Lyndhurst to Fritham. There was much more gravel today and loads more descending.

Had an amazing first day riding in the New Forest with @paulrobertlloyd. Arriving into Brockenhurst, we set off anti-clockwise via Bouldre to the Pondhead campsite, Lyminster.

Having a well-earned tea break.

Roo and I went on a high rope course. She was so brave.

Too busy to eat her dinner, reading my old Benos.

We got some caterpillars through the post. Weeks later, they emerged as gorgeous butterflies. Yesterday we let them go in the garden.

Thanks @Alpkit for the excellent service. It came! Jules at the Hathersage store was incredibly helpful.

New bike day! It came! Love my new @RibbleCycles CGR.

My two faves.

Followed a brilliant @Procreate tutorial by Bardot Brush and now I want cake.

Started drawing again (again). This in the style from one of @ninthart 's classic how-to books.

Great running today on the South Downs.

About time! ☀️

My daughter drew this. She’s 3! Not that I’m biased, but this is bloody brilliant.

I’m not sure this is what the @fireflyteam smoothy maker was intended for, but this is genius: Brownie milkshakes!

We had a lovely day at Gaston farm.

Love this picture of Roo, captivated by the view of the Alps from 38,000 ft.

Home. Sad face.

Sweaty child + ice cream


Beautiful stars, better seen.

Start ‘em young.

He’s enjoying the sunshine too. ☀️

Cute kid: check. ✅

So was getting here.

Tuscany is beautiful.

The design museum was a fun this afternoon with @fireflyteam

Like that scene from E.T.
