  • 4 daytrips. 46.75 miles walked. And weird times on the trains. Monday... stuck in Crewe for an hour due London signalling problems. Wednesday.. full aircon on at 6.55am to Cardiff and coming back the heaters were turned on at 8pmish!? Yesterday.. spot the train that's running through Oxenholme!

    I've 'liked' your walking not the problems with the trains.:)

    Always the joys of trains when you don't drive.! I probably would have ended on 50 miles in 4 days but my day in the Lakes got slightly interrupted by 2 20 minute downpours 5 minutes apart and when I was on the jetty at Brockhole, 20 minutes of lightning turned into an hour of the fiercest thunderstorm I've witnessed outdoors.
    Holiday time. Which tomorrow means getting up at 4am so that I can get to Caernarfon for 9.15. Maybe it's time for driving lessons to be booked!
    Should have put this up on Friday,,, 2nd time in 3 awards ceremonies, I was declared Team Employee of the Month but this time wasn't the Company Employee of the Month. Or 2 months as that's the frequency of these things!
    33 hours overtime worked last month, 14 hours overtime worked so far this month. You could say I'm getting slightly tired! Booming business coinciding with my mini-team going down to just me,

    Rather you than me. You clearly have a strong constitution.

    The sales team can't believe where I've got the energy from. i just hope that it does result in another pay rise and/or bonus scheme being introduced (sales get one for agreeing a sale, one for having all documentation received and one for getting a payment. My bonus appears to be not being sacked!)

    Something not quite fair there, putting it mildly.
    Astonishing Champions League results. So we now have the 2nd and 3rd English clubs coming back from 3 goals down in a European semi-final to win the tie.
    really looking forward to a 13 hour day at work tomorrow. Going to have no time for a bite to eat for lunch as far too much stuff that needs sorting.
    10th anniversary of mum's death and my near miss. Gone but never forgotten,

    The pain never goes, you just learn to live with it. My thoughts are with you.

    Cheers Ray. Doesn't seem that long ago. The one good thing out of is lessons were learned so morre people will get rescued if incapacitated
    Note to self: check date and time settings properly when changing camera batteries. Since September. I had plenty of blue sky shots apparently taken at 9pm or later.
    Think the 5 fold increase in workload that's happened over the last 9 months has caught up with me. Good for business but bad for me! Shattered.
    So the alcohol flowed at work today... in the form of Gin and Tonic flavoured fudge from the National Trust
    Nice to see a return of the Indian summer next week when I'm back off holiday... doesn't help when I did have next week booked off and decided to cancel it.
    Sat watching the rain fall steadily and trying to work out why the groundsman is mowing the grass. I'm looking forward to the mud patches when he finishes
    Week off work. Planned 7 daytrips and I get the great news from the brother that he may come Thursday or Friday or Saturday or not at all
    Sat at home watching flyover trails.. exciting life! Finally lost sight of KU118. I'm in Manchester add it was way past Lincoln.
    Earthquake magnitude 5.0 in Swansea at 2.30. Felt it here in Manchester!
