Lessons from a baby

Three months of having a baby has taught me a lot. Things like how to do just about anything one handed, to always keep a sense of humour, and a few tips and tricks about removing a nappy! But I think there is also a lot that we can learn from the baby him/herself as well. Some things they grasp much more easily than we do. Three of these are dependence, delight and discontent. Dependence My daughter doesn’t try to source her own food, when she is hungry she lets me know (sometimes she REALLY lets me know!) and I feed her. She wouldn’t dream of feeding herself, dressing herself,...

Will I make it?

On 24th January the British explorer Henry Worsley died attempting to walk the 913 miles across Antarctica – entirely on his own – saying that he wanted to follow in the footsteps of his hero Ernest Shackleton (who also did not manage it across either, in fact hardly started). Worsley had to give up 30 miles short of completion and was rescued but died later. He did not make it. But why oh why would you choose to attempt to walk across the coldest most inhospitable continent on the planet? It would be that bitter wind that would put me off – I hate bitter winds. The story...
