Well, Easter was a bit of a wash-out in the UK; for three days it chucked it down in the south, whilst some of our northern friends opened their curtains on Easter Sunday to more of the white stuff. Sometimes it snows in April, as the Purple One once warbled. This year, Easter Sunday coincided … Continue reading Monthly Round-Up: April
A startling phenomenal happened in the UK this week. The sun came out. Yes it did. At first I thought it was a figment of my imagination as it doesn't happen that often. As you never know when the next sighting is due, I ask you to please allow me the indulgence of spending a … Continue reading The Slave Auction Re-Post

Over the years I've been lucky enough to ski with some amazing people and I'm happy to say I've found 'my tribe'. … Continue reading The Lycra Challenge
I've just got back from a week skiing in Morzine, did you miss me? It's been pretty busy since I returned, mainly because I've given Planet Dom a bit of a make-over, and as you know, these things always take longer than anticipated. So I hope you don't mind if I re-blog one of my … Continue reading Rib Tickler Re-Post
Happy St David's Day, everybody! Well that's a great start to a new month, we welcomed Brian Blessed ("Gordon's Alive!") to Planet Dom and I've been nominated for The Sunshine Blogger Award! Storm Emma is welcoming in the first day of Spring and I'm sitting here in snowy England, but my aim is to bring a … Continue reading The Sunshine Blogger Award
