We wanted to change our lives and we've certainly done that. I began my blog detailing our experiences in 2009 and it's become very popular. Here's a selection of entries from its first two years arranged January to December.

This is the story of a circumnavigation of Ireland aboard my 27ft yacht in 2011. From the Forth I went round Ireland anti-clockwise, which people tell me is the ’wrong way round’. Most of the journey was sailed solo. I skirted a lot of the bits of the ‘Celtic Fringe’. By sea Celtdom doesn't look so much a 'fringe' as the centre, a fact which I rant about quite a lot
