My name’s Olly Parry-Jones and I thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.
I’m a recently-turned-thirty-years-old woodworker with a increasing passion for exploring the experiencing the outdoors. Currently without a workshop, this blog is a space for me to share my latest walking and hiking adventures along with camping trips around the British countryside. Living about ten-miles south of Bristol, it’s pleasing to be able to say that I’m never far away from a hill or green space.
Along with walks and the odd bit of DIY, I frequently write about my experiments in the kitchen with a halogen oven, which also extends to include baking. As a LoveFilm DVD subscriber, I also intend to keep you updated with what I’m watching film-wise.
This blog has shifted several times since its inception back in August 2009. While the focus may occasionally vary from one post to the next, I am determined to keep this going as it is my space to write.
As a person, I believe in karma and kindness towards others. Self-help, mindfulness and I have a general interest in Buddhist philosophy. I’m also of the opinion that what we do with our lives (career-wise) offers a reflection upon who we are – however, sadly, this is not currently the case in my situation and to be honest, I’m lacking the direction and belief to help me move forwards in to something I could appreciate.
If you’re a long-tern reader of British Woodworking magazine then you may have seen previous articles where my name has appeared in print (circa. 2008-2011). I used to be a frequent contributor to the UKworkshop forums and I have an ever increasing number of subscribers to my YouTube channel, where I share woodworking videos, DIY tips and photo montages from my walks.
If you’re in to social-networking then you’ll find a series of links under ‘Contact Me‘ in the right-and column from which you can discover, share with and follow me.
Thank you for visiting my blog! 🙂
