The beauty of winter

Back in November of last year I wrote a short blog post extolling the virtues of nature walks when you work from home.

Shortly before Christmas I discovered that my phone has a built in health app that records how many steps I take, so I started challenging myself to see how far I could walk each day.

Getting out in the Winter months can be difficult. Sometimes it’s tempting to just sit in front of the fire with a cup of tea but I pushed myself out into the cold and as a result I’m a bit fitter than I was before Christmas.

I’ve also been able to document some of the beautiful weather conditions we’ve experienced this Winter. I’ve included a few of those photos in this post. I hope you enjoy them.
