After Ireland and Romania there was little thought of more travel this year, which we had accepted without issue, I don't think either of us are the sort of folk that 'need' travel, we just 'want'. With Christmas edging towards us like a hungry panther ( slow to begin with then POW! ) and plenty of weekends booked up playing host to family and friends we didn't need this trip, but breaking those…read more

Bubble football

June 28, 2017
An hour long session of bubble football is much like the journey of life crammed into 60 minutes. For the first 10 you all stumble around finding your feet, getting accustomed to your new abilities and physical restrictions unsure exactly how to go about things. Then it steps up, the expectations are raised and now you are struggling against the odds, aiming to take down others while trying to…read more
