Yup, I was missing my boyfriend
A folding Cruiser did the job!
During August of 2011 I decided to join a trek across North America and Canada, when I say trek I mean part trek, part everything else. We did everything you can imagine including white water rafting, horse-riding, glacier walking, canoeing, mountain biking etc!
On the last but one day of this adventure I decided that I would break away from the group I had spent the last 13 days with and take back some me time. At this point we were in the beautiful city of Vancouver, therefore I hired a bike and saw the famous Stanley Park and Vancouver's stunning bay. I had blast, weeeeeeee.
At the end of every Summer I have taken to obsessively foraging. As a child I would always pick Blackberries, Blackcurrents and Gooseberries and find ways to make the fruit more exciting. As an adult I am equally as enthusiastic. Anything which can be found in a hedgerow or field or mountain top which is edible I will help myself too.
A good friend of mine has a steady source of Damsons and I froze some Sloes two years ago, so It was time to get my next batch of Winter drinks underway. The fruit was added to Gin and Vodka accompanied by a heap of sugar. In 3-6 months time we shall try out our stock with friends and some wine and cheese.
