2014 is going to be a year of getting outdoors more. That’s despite adopting the world’s biggest couch potato in the form of Mr Moo the retired greyhound (not his real name, but greyhounds require anonymity on social media too) . Greyhounds, its turns out, are seriously chilled out dogs. Adopting Moo was all part of my desire to get outdoors more, not that I need a dog to be my passport to that, but having a running and walking companion was one more on a long list of reasons to adopt a greyhound. Greyhounds don’t really need a lot of exercise, but they certainly enjoy a good walk and even a jog.

Jacksons of Old Arley are the largest stockists of camping, caravanning, outdoor clothing and spares and accessory equipment here in the Midlands. They are a family-run one-stop camping and caravanning shop, but you can also buy online. Here’s what I am lusting after for my new, even more outdoorsy life, from Jacksons of Old Arley, over on Polyvore.
Here’s to the great British Outdoors! What about you, what have you got lined up on the horizon for 2014?
