  • Decided to have a 1 trip this holiday. Alas, it was more of a slip on a rug in my flat. Got friction burn on arm the coffee table I glanced

    unexpected trips are always great,, eh ??
    so I remembered today that I'm on holiday next week. Swift trip to work done to get boxed off the stuff that was outstanding.
    Last 2 years, I've explored the UK but my brother's doing the world instead. Today he's off to Jordan.

    Isn't it dangerous there? Still, I admire him.

    It's one of the relatively few safe places in the Middle East and he's with a tour group that's had years of experience over there. Flight was 90 mins late leaving but arrived only 30 mins late.
    A very cheap dayout at Nostell Priory today.. £4.90 Arriva daysaver in Leeds and just £2 return travel to Leeds on Cityzap.
    Today's the 40th anniversary of my 1st visit to MAN. Got false expectations of how busy it was as it was packed with diversions.
    So.. using my brother's patented "Streetview" test on determining trips, no longer off to Berlin in January but to Amsterdam instead
    Tale of the daytrip tape. 860+ miles on bus/train and 63 miles walked. On a scale of 1 to 10 on how tired I am, I think I'd say 13 or 14.

    A man after my own heart. I walk most days and do a 10-15 mile walk at least once a week, often more than once. I walk a minimum of four marathons every month of the year (spread over the month that is not a marathon in one go).

    I should have said a minimum of the equivalent of four marathons a month.

    I'm very impressed by that! The shortest walks were 2 lots of 5 miles which was Friday and Sunday, with London being on the Saturday. No point in exhausting myself before the big trip or the day before getting back to work.
    Not going to be put off my London trip tomorrow

    All fine. nothing noticeable extra security wise in the city centre apart from fencing down some of the roads down to the main tourist destinations. Got back home at around midnight
    Day 1 of holiday. So... on a train at 6am to go to Blenheim Palace. Up 2 hours earlier than usual... asking myself why!
    Nearly prepped up for daytrip mode next week, with 1st trip to Scotland in the offing. Must find the Kerr tartan should I go
    Love my phone deciding to freeze, reboot and freeze in the reboot. 3rd straight day of waiting for the battery to drain to charge it back up
    going to have another photo feature on National Trust social media channels. Time to give up the day job and go professional?

    Will be doing. You'll 'bee' happy to see it!
    2 overseas trips in prospect next year. To paraphrase JFK , I could say "I am a doughnut" and to the "homeland"

    Sounds good. Have you been pricing up?

    no, my brother dropped it in conversation casually yesterday. The Peru trip was meant to be February but now September/October and Berlin 1st week in January. He said ts roughly £1500ish and £300ish respectively.
    54th annual family picnic done and dusted. Not for the 1st time, passers-by wanted to join in given the amount of food brought

    Sounds good. Why 54th? Is this a trans-generational event?

    It is. Started off with my mum and dad, one of my aunts and a family friend and got bigger...now it's a total of 23. Takes a bit of co-ordinating. The 40th got into the local press and the 50th saw Lyme Park erect a special marquee for us (all bar 1 have been there).
    RIP Bradley Lowery. No child should have to go through a horrible disease like cancer.

    It's a dreadful disease for anyone but for a young child it's almost unthinkable. I'm very impressed with Mr Defoe. He contributed greatly to Bradley's enjoyment of the short time he had left.RIP.
