Let me introduce you to bouldering

One of the reasons I have been so absent from my blog is my new addiction to bouldering.

It’s time for an update…

Wow, it’s been a while hasn’t it? I’m so sorry that its been so long since I last posted but I’ve been having an amazing summer with someone who, to be quite frank, I just can’t tear myself away from.
