You know travel bugs? Those little trackable thing you put into geocaches? Well I own three of them. Ones in the hands of someone who isn’t active anymore, ones in a decommissioned cache in the Pennines and another has been lost due to a pillock. It’s within my wit to get it going again but these things cost money. If you’re not gonna move them on why take them?
Anyways rant over!
Works been OK this week. This evening Sponge is at work so I’ve taken to tidying my bedroom whilst listening to a few old favourite albums. Hunting High And Low by a-ha , Adrenalize by Def Leppard and The Wall by Pink Floyd ,Took me right back to when I was 20. Hell….half my life ago in May ! When I think of all my past I feel a large part was wasted around people I shouldn’t have even given the time of day. I was largely ignored, held back, bullied to the point of no confidence. Yet the year after I broke away from all that was one of the best of my life. Last year wasn’t too bad either. This year….. I can do a lot this year with a certain Vic. If/when we do….it’ll be ‘the’ year 😉 x
Let’s hope work flies by today with such a busy weekend ahead. I have #Manchester tomorrow with Mr Lain, and then meeting up with Claire on Sunday. It’s rained here during the night and is still dull and overcast. Gonna tidy up the rooms, and get showered before bed. Won’t have time in the morning. Best charge the camera and phone up as well. Kit out my rucksack.
My Riddler’s Roamer #travelbug has been taken all the way to #San Diego , #California . ( Thanks Aaron)
I’m so thrilled its gone five and a half thousand miles in such a short time. It was in Baby Masons #geocache so long I thought it had been lost until it was moved to the place Aaron picked it up. Then bang! All the way round the world. Here’s hoping the current holders of my other two #travelbugs get themselves into gear. Gonna feel like a travelbug myself this weekend!!
Was contacted by Mr Lain this morning to organise another little drinkie. He has also kept back those two books for me. I think i offered a fiver per tome. Its reminded me to scrawl down that idea for my own #fightingfantasy adventure. Obviously ill put it yo paper first but after that im not sure wether to submit it to Mr Frys website or have it as a standalone playable fansite. Thisll be decided when i get more time. So week two of my 5k training started yesterday. I also took the time to ask the ranger at Hartsholme if i could hide my first #geocache there. Thats all done now and ive submitted it to the website. Just need to wait and see if the volunteer approves it. All exciting. Raided my 50p tin. Was only a fivers worth in it but thatll help out for next weekend seeing how ive been a bit wreckless with the pennies this month. At least i have new clothes to wear! Also been slowly assembling my three day bug out bag. These #survival shows ive been watching must be getting to me, but even if there are no emergency reasons to use it, i can always use it for camping in the #summer before the food expires.
I’ve been a bit slow on the uptake be Geocaching sounds like a good way to keep me occupied while my lady is absent and I could do with the fresh air and exercise.I have a bit of catching up to do though now we have changed ISP’s. Last night I wrote the backstory of the Fighting Fantasy style adventure I am writing. I need to plant the rest of the spring bulbs in the garden, do laundry and tidy up. Furthermore I believe I have found a way to promote this site even further after Wednesdays successful method. So….lets get to it! Incidentally, good luck my darling Diane in your new job tomorrow.
Saw Michael J Fox at the garden center thethis morning. He had his back to the fuschia 😉
