Sweepings from an Untidy Mind

We all know the benefits to body and spirit of a walk in the park or countryside. In ‘Sweepings from an Untidy Mind’,  Bob Bowden goes one stage further and uses his daily walk to harness all those stray thoughts whizzing around his self-confessed untidy mind, entertaining us in the process.

A Christmas Carol

Charles Dickens’ iconic Christmas story, set in 19th century London, about the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and the visitations he receives from three ghostly apparitions – the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and of Christmas Yet to Come. They show him how cruel he has been to those around him during his life. This revelation transforms Scrooge into a kinder, gentler person who, in the happy ending, personifies the spirit of goodwill to all men at Christmas-time.
