Shouting from my Shed: 43

  • There is so much good news in the world. Useful ammunition against the curmudgeonly complainers at your Christmas dinner.
  • A fascinating look into the world of origami (honestly).
  • Lazy: a manifesto.
  • A randomly selected collection of the ‘Best Bits’ articles from my blog. Different every time you dip in…
  • If you’re looking for a New Year’s resolution, you could do a lot worse than climbing a tree once a month. (It need not be as big as this one.)
  • An invitation for a festive microadventure.
  • Night of Adventure 2020: tickets on sale now.
  • Barbara Hillary has died. She was the first black woman to reach both poles, doing so in her 70s after deciding that she wanted a little adventure in her life.
  • A hypnotic live stream of the Earth from Space, as seen from the International Space Station.
  • Watch the International Space Station pass overhead. It is the third brightest object in the sky and easy to spot if you know when to look up.
  • A beautiful gallery of expedition photography from the Arctic Ocean.
  • I love 1% for the Planet where businesses pledge to give at least 1% of their sales back to the environment. I wanted to join but couldn’t be bothered with the paperwork and faff. So each December I just donate a lump sum to a charity. I’m not mentioning this here to be smug (#humble) but because I realised that more useful than my money would be suggesting the idea to 45,939 people… (ie. you!). This year I have chosen to support the Rivers Trust.
  • The delightfully bonkers Ella Foote is doing a daily river dip throughout December.
  • Finally, please will you subscribe to two free things I’ve made: my podcast and my Doorstep Mile newsletter?
