        Getting a donkey to an island

        Our little appearance on?Wonders of the Coast Path is on?ITV UK-wide tomorrow night at 8pm, so a good reason to?get on with writing about?the island adventure?here. Also, there’s more travels afoot, and so this is housekeeping – getting out the backpacks and bivvybags and finding them all full of the […]

        Island nesting: the imaginary movie

        This is all out of order, like leafing through the piles of stuff on every surface in my lockdown flat. I am going to tell you more about Chico coming to Bardsey, but the next bit is Rhys’s story to tell, and we only see each other in passing, one […]

        Self-islanding with a donkey

        Nice to get the chance to dust off the donkey! Here’s?Chico on telly, on an island. You can see the whole episode here – the series is airing in Wales at the moment and will be showing on ITV proper sometime soon.   And here’s the backstory: A year ago […]

        Free the mothers! We are not the number-one parents!

        Anyone who’s been watching the whole donkey story will know that what I found so hard – what the ‘adventure’ really was – was my ineptitude and discomfort with being in charge. And here I bloody well am again. I am not the number-one parent. And in coming to realise […]

        Walking to Hay Festival

        We walked to Hay! Ursula Martin (One Woman Walks) and I assembled all the OS maps, taped them to the floor, made a plumb line from Aberystwyth to Hay, then drew a pink pen line along the nicest-looking footpaths that were closest to our string. The upshot was a fantastic […]

        Triple-bill speaking tour next weekend! Plus, Hay Festival. Eep!

        I have talking dates coming up! I’m beside myself with excitement at having been invited to Hay Festival, which is at the end of May, and I am going to escape the monkey on my back (see the pretty monkey below!) and walk across Wales to Hay with my co-speakee, […]

        Last-minute Christmas-post post!

        Last-minute Christmas-post post!

        This is the third year of my clever way of keeping Christmas consumerism in its place: I do all my shopping on Christmas Eve, and until then I firmly maintain the belief that Christmas doesn’t apply to me. This does mean that I forgot to mention my donkey wares – […]

        Facing a whole new scary adventure

        I am going to New York. It’s not for work. Even stretching the definition of work as I do, I’m not doing anything adventurous, not taking my walking boots, maybe not even taking my laptop. And yet I’m more nervous about this trip than any other except one. If adventuring […]

        Wild Baby – a new film!

        Wild Baby – a new film!

        I made a new film! It’s a shortie, just right for an afternoon tea break. It’s really very safe for work – no swearing at runaway donkeys, no crying (well, quite a lot actually, but not done by me for a change), no epic dirt-encrusted walk. Just the quiet struggle […]

        Where the hell did I go?

        Where the hell did I go?

        Aaaaaaaaaaaaargh! I want to create something good, and I have 40 minutes before nursery finishes! Did you know that I once did great things? I once scared myself daily, pushing myself to the tops of hills, along dual carriageways, through fields of lively bullocks, and so far out of my […]
