Being in the outdoors is a big part of my life. It’s my work, it influences my hobbies and is also important in how we spend our free time as a family. Creating this blog and putting my thoughts and feelings into words has not only been a big challenge, but is a slightly scary commitment.  

So, here we go.

Firstly, I must say I huge thank you to my sister and brother-in-law who gave me all the information and support that has helped me get to where I am now. THANK YOU!

When people ask what I do for a living I explain that I have an ‘outdoor office’. I work as part of a team that provide outdoor activities to children and young people in Cardiff. I also have huge elements of training which bring up a number of challenges and experiences which I would love to share.

I have a creative element to my personality and nature is a big influence in my work especially, when it comes to my love of photography.

Most importantly, the outdoors is a huge part of our lives due to my beautiful 6 year-old daughter. She is at her happiest when she is knee-deep in mud, or attempting to climb an extremely high tree. She really makes me see the outdoors in a fresh and exciting way.

So, I’ve explained a little about what the outdoors means to me and how important I feel it is.

My first question, to set the ball rolling, is how and why the outdoor world is important to you?

I look forward to any and all comments, and I can’t wait to hear from you.

  1. Welcome to the world of blogging! Am I your first commenter?

    The outdoor world is important to me because it helps me relax. Plopping stones in the sea, or splashing in muddy puddles, or exploring the different insects in the undergrowth is fun and therapeutic. It teaches The Boy about the wonderful big, wide, wonderful world that he is a part of.

    Great first post!

    • Thank you! You’re my first reply! It’s very exciting, and I hope to share and hear lots of stories.

  2. A lady after my own heart! We have a holiday farm in Cornwall with our 6 children and we all adore the outdoors come rain or shine. Will be following your blog with interest and hope you will pop by and join my Country Kids linky too some times. (have a nose around my blog and you’ll see it there each week) A warm welcome to the world of blogging.

    • Thank you. I was very nervous about going down this path, but it’s a subject that I’d like to share, and talk about with like-minded people. I will check out your blog too. Thank you for your interest.

Please share your thoughts about my post with me!
