...in the space of a few weeks Life as we know has changed irrevociably. Coronavirus (covid 19) has taken the world by storm, literally. Countries are shut down, our borders here in Australia, and Tasmania, have closed (and being an island continent makes it somewhat easier to control) and projects, plans,, races, wedding and funerals, … Continue reading What a change..

Three weeks later my youngest had a pretty serious mountain bike accident (in hindsight I could have prevented … Continue reading 2020 – time to start again
