Spend Paddy's weekend in Sheffield hanging out with great friends, lots of laughing, lots of tea, a mix of indoor and outdoor bouldering, and pizza (duh). Even after living there, I still get shocked by how quickly you can be in the outdoors from the city....

First visit to the beautiful Cloghogue last weekend. First time I've been really drawn on a location to spend time in for a while - beautiful setting on the side of a hill away from it all.

One thing that is evident from the above photos - I've been pretty woeful at taking photos of actual activity!  Been too busy doing the activity myself (for a change, in recent times at least) so that's a good reason to have :)

With the sun higher in the sky, normal energy levels are starting to return - I'm slowly accepting that I'm not overly motivated through darker months of the year. Yes, sunny climates are my home....

Speaking of sun. Chuilla in late April. See you there?
