In pursuit of further developing creativity, I decided to present my class with another open-ended and creative task.
A task that would not only encourage the children I teach to work together, think expansively, but also build stronger levels of resilience and perseverance in order to reach and hopefully achieve a desirable goal.
Quadlock is a nifty little gadget that every keen cyclist should definitely have attached to their bikes. Whether cycling around the city or undertaking a long distance ride, this accessory should surly be on everyone's list.
Over the last few years, there’s definitely been somewhat of a revolution in the number of people choosing to cycle to work. Maybe it's down to increased traffic on the roads, personal issues relating to health, cost or simply trying something new. Either way, there are many great benefits of riding into work, rather than driving or using public transport.
In this particular post, I hope to highlight some of my Top Tips, after I decided to ditch all modes of transport, in order to complete a 32 mile/52km cycle commute each and every day.
It's time to make the most of the longer days and warmer weather...
With long, dark, cold winter months finally leaving us behind, a new world of opportunity is blossoming just beyond your window. As the seasons change, the weather is starting to improve and the days are getting longer.
To hopefully promote, positive thinking, I would like to encourage my readers to get outside, make the most of what you have, by enjoying some much-needed sunshine and perhaps begin to participate in one of the many healthy active pursuits at your disposal.
Here is my latest Outdoor Product review. In this particular post, I will be reviewing the Black Diamond's 'Ultra Distance' carbon fibre folding trekking poles. A 3-section Z-Pole combination and design, that features a flexible coated inner cord, a single push-button release system, together with the very handy Speed Cone technology that has Black Diamonds impressive avalanche probe design—a key component of Z-Poles'.
This is the third and latest post in my series all about 'Inspiring Individuals.' In this particular post, I will be focusing on one of my good friends, from my University days. Through the years, we shared some great times. Playing in the same successful football team and enjoying some similar past times, as well as being part of a wider friendship group.
Roaming the Dutch Landscape is a great way to spend any given weekend. The Netherlands offers a diverse range of landscapes, in which any outdoors enthusiast can simply get outside, then wander and explore their surroundings.

For my latest blog post, I am delighted to be collaborating with a great outdoor equipment company and writing another outdoor gear review. In this particular review, I was lucky enough to collaborate with Terra Nova Equipment, who are a longstanding outdoor equipment specialist based in the UK and an equipment specialist I have long admired, as an avid outdoor enthusiast.
A favourite walk - The Roaches, Staffordshire, England.
I have written about one previous Peak District walk already. That particular walk focused on one of my favourite places, that being the beautiful area surrounding the popular and well photographed, Chrome Hill.
Since moving to the Netherlands around three years ago the majority of my days are spent outside, cycling in the bike lane. To most people out there, this might sound rather mad or perhaps even peculiar, but it is all in fact entirely true. After 'Brexiting' the Motherland and I guess becoming part of Dutch culture I decided to make some changes in my life. Changes that were perhaps easy to consider, but in reality, much harder to actually implement.
Developing Creativity - 50 Things to do with a Stick.
If you read my blog on a regular basis and have become a follower of my 'Personal Thoughts and Stories' then you probably are beginning to gain a greater understanding of what I'm like as a person and perhaps learning from the fact, I don't always think or do what other normal human beings do.
This doesn't mean to say that I'm different, peculiar or weird in any way. I'm not! I'm just myself and that's the way I like it. You see, I do possess an active, creative mind, that is always thinking one step ahead and always thinking out of the box.
There's nothing wrong with being that way... right?
For the majority of blogger types out there, working full-time on your blog is pretty much the normal state of affairs, with many using it as a full-time venture, career and job. Some are lucky enough to travel the world, work with brands, tell a great story and develop inspiring content, others do all of the same and yet produce complete rubbish.
So, I have been lucky enough to be nominated for my first ever blog award!! That's cool and I feel really privileged. Big thanks to Sophie for choosing me as one of your nominees. I'm humbled and really appreciate it. Such a great achievement and exciting to think people like my work.

Cycling has always been my passion. Something I have continually embraced through leisure and sporting pursuits. Cycling is a huge part of me, part of my character and an essential aspect of my existence, here on planet earth. I cycle everywhere, here in the Netherlands, back in the UK and anywhere my travels take me.
In the province of Noord-Holland, not too far from the Dutch mainland is Texel, the largest of the five Dutch Wadden islands. Read my latest Thoughts and Stories from my most recent visit to this fabulous island. #placestowanderandexplore
My latest blog post sees me focusing on my love of the Great Outdoors as well as having a fabulous opportunity to work with popular UK Outdoor clothing manufacturers, Mountain Warehouse. Within this particular blog I will be reviewing one or two products available from their extensive outdoor range and adding my own person view on the equipment.
