I'm not so keen on the mundane side of life, but that doesn't mean I don't love a nice cup of tea and a slice of cake!

Anything Else We Should Know
Cream teas are amazing, they can cure any number of ills.

I despise the morbid blame threads that appear every time there is an accident in the hills, especially reading the 'holier than thou' comments made by some who are 'annoyed' or 'angry' that someone has made a mistake and needed the help of the rescue services. It doesn't matter if someone has made a mistake as a result of inexperience, ignorance or just plain bad luck - anyone in trouble out there deserves our thoughts and our actions to help them.
