If you’re local to Milton Keynes then you will have no doubt noticed the new Spin e-scooters popping up around the area. Ever the innovative town, Milton Keynes has been selected as the first place in the UK to launch a full-scale trial of these new scooters which are now available to hire. I tried out a Spin e-scooter at the weekend and wanted to share my experience with you – along with lots of cheesy pics of me swanning around posing in various MK locations. There’s also a free £5 credit code at the end of the post so…

I’ve been so busy being back at work and having all my weekends booked up in July that I’ve not had much of a chance to blog recently!

I haven’t written a blog post since the first day of lockdown when I created a ‘to do list’ to stay productive over the coming weeks. I thought I’d follow up on that post with a little update on what I’ve been up to since then, in the 5 weeks since lockdown.
