What a busy time I’m having at the moment. It’s all go. I’m very excited about a free trip I’ve blagged to Miami and Mexico next week. BA Club Class flights (bed on aeroplane!) 5 star resort, VIP type sketch. Could work out to be quite a big slice of fun. On top of heavy work and life admin tasks that seem to be in abundance at the moment, I’ve got an adventure to get excited about and plan (hard life eh!). I’ve not done that much in the way of documenting my day to day life for some time now so hopefully this trip will get me back on track.
Been doing lots of geocaching and stuff of a weekend. Bought some ace new 4wd Matt boots. Asolo Flame GTX is their rather ott naming convention, but after reading reviews from their predecessors (the ‘Fugitive’ GTX) they seemed like the ones – getting super high scores and rave reviews. Finding them cheaper online than anywhere else, I did the cheeky trick of going into Cotswold’s and trying them on, getting my feet measured up, chatting about suitability for my needs etc. Then guilt ridden, when the chap said he couldn’t budge on price I left them and chose the nearly £30 cheaper online for the same product model. I’ve not been disappointed so far. Not done a proper hike in them with Sophie on my back but the little bimble we did told me that I’d made a good choice!
Also been reading stacks. Finished a biog called “Stuart, a life backwards” which was quite a fascinating read about a ‘chaotic homeless’ person like no other. Reading about some of the injustice on some of the people who were trying to look after them was quite eye opening. The author really got into the guys head. Quite interesting – especially for anyone who’s interested in ‘Care’.
I’m going to do a separate blog on the book I’ve just finished though – it was quite special story.
