Chania's alright

We lost Ian 38 years ago. Joy Division are one of my favourite bands, but I'm biased as Ian lived round the corner from where I live now

It's #mentalhealthawarenessweek and I thought I'd share a bit from myself. A few years ago I was having a bit of a tough time, nothing major, just the usual life stuff you tend to go through in your mid to late 20s. My mate (who I'd not seen as often as I should've) called when he heard what was going on, didn't even mention it, just said `fancy climbing a mountain tomorrow?' I had nothing better to do so we climbed a damn mountain. It was exactly what I needed. Male mental health is everywhere at the moment and rightly so, but from a man's point of view opening up can be easier said than done. Sometimes, calling up with the premise of something else can help someone to open up. I've always found hiking perfect, you're less likely to bump into someone, there's no crowds, no phone signal, and as me and my mate say 'climb a hill and have a moan' . Obviously I'm not naive enough to think that hiking is a cure for all, but it definitely helps.

Last job before we go on holiday, painting @patagoniamanchester showroom windows highlighting @wornwear @saveourrivers and 1% for the planet campaign. A challenging job but always an honour working with @patagonia massive thanks to @intwosandthrees for helping me paint. This one's hidden away from public view but you can still see my window @patagoniamanchester shop
