Jarratt Horton

Heart and Hustle (and wine)

I’m Jarratt Horton. I’m a regular ol’ guy with a job, commitments and all the rest, learning and sharing how to take more control of my life, be present, have fun and be happier.

Experimenting with:

  • Finding a sense of purpose;
  • Gaining greater financial control;
  • Strengthening personal relationships.

Pondering: “How can we live better?”

Travel, design, business, cuisine, marketing, photography, books, blogging, personal finance, fun, culture, nature, gadgets, sustainability, life.

I’m just getting on with it, trying new things, learning as I go and sharing how it pans out along the way.

I've been feeling sorry for the poor lambs these past few days, with freezing temps and plenty of snow. Apparently it's a thing up here, the Lambing Snow; one last dump after the first spring lambs are born. This is just down the road from where we are living - that's our house in the distance!

Out for a walk on a day off. ---------- Here's our house in the middle of nowhere!

A few pics from Havana - swipe  - it seems like it was all about cars and drinks! (Not far off really). Amazing place to explore

My #2016bestnine photos highlighting moments or feelings I’m grateful for as I look back on the year that’s been #2016. In no particular order:1. My job: Working for and with such great people has been so rewarding, and the challenge of managing @bangorshed as it grows and establishes itself was a great learning curve. I’ve loved it. 2. Hobart Football Club: Last year I struggled to find my place but I thoroughly enjoyed 2016 and really appreciated being a part of the continuing revival of @hobarttigers #HobartForeverBoys3. A return visit to Paris in May for our now traditional hunt all over the city for the best croissant turned up some good contenders, but @ble_sucre is still king of the croissant for me.4. Quiet nights sat at home with a cocktail by the fire: Mark this as the year I started to really love sitting at home relaxing with a good drink. A sign of age? 5. A return visit to Skye: it was great to return to visit good friends on @officialisleofskye and tackle some new hikes, the highlights being Blà Bheinn and the amazing view into the Cuillins from Sgurr na Stri.6. A visit to the home of whisky: a whirlwind trip to Islay to try as much whisky as we could squeeze in to 3 days. Jura was beautiful and I would love to go back, but a visit to my favourite distillery @laphroaig was the clear highlight.7. Relaxing weekends away: We wanted to make the most of our weekends to explore Tasmania and had some great experiences, my favourites being a relaxing weekend at @pumphousepoint in February and a big night at the @thousandlakeslodge late in the year. #pumphousepoint8. Hiking and exploring: Day hikes have become a favourite pastime and we’ve done some incredible walks this year, the highlight being the Tre Cime region in the Northern Italian @dolomites.9. Life at Bangor: life on the farm in Dunalley has been so peaceful and calming, and I’ve enjoyed just sitting back and being thankful for living in such a beautiful part of the world. Hosting Christmas lunch and having family visit from the UK capped off a great year.
