Having the Munchies...

Just recently I've been having a huge case of the munchies for all sorts of things, (I'd just like to point out that these aren't munchies caused by inhalation of funny smoke of any kind). This has lead me to some vague plans of things to do this year whilst enjoying the sun :)

Camping - I have a massive case of the camp munchies. I can't wait for that day to pack up the car, and drive out for some enjoyable beside the fire/BBQ chatting that will no doubt occur. I have a few provisos for this year though. I'd like an open fire which I can cook on/in. I have some truly amazing ideas for camp food, so will be trying this.

Walking - I've got out of the habit of walking around looking at the countryside. I'm sure it stems from th many walks I went on as a small child where I'd get a bit bored by the scenery, find a stick and use it as some kind've gun.

Surfing - I've tried surfing a fair few times in the past. But due to Bob and other things haven't been for several years, and feel the urge to get back in the water!

Motorbike - I'd like to get my Bike Test passed this year, so I can ride something bigger than 100cc (which can be a bit limited) and also take a passenger (so Kirsty and I don't always need to take a car). I might be able to merge camping with motorcycling for some sort of uber weekend trip!

As it is, I think the camping will be first! Now where did I put my firesteel??

"months, Post Christmas, and Back into this blogging game

As you may have noticed (if any of you were looking to begin with), that I haven't written for a short while. (Yeah ok, so it was the best part of 2 months... Who's counting?)

Since the Joy of Hawaii has definitely diminished, although it took until after Christmas for this to occur, I've been feeling a bit flat. There's so much I mean to do and never get around to doing, it's very frustrating. Couple this with my mental state being occasionally fragile and as you might guess, I've been fun to live with, so my Hat (probably my Grey Flat cap, as it's my favourite) goes off to Kirsty for keeping me sane, hugs'n'stuff and generally putting up with the nonsense that goes her way!

I'm in a position where I'm going to need nagging about certain things that I need to complete in the next few months.... Some won't be of interest to anyone but me and Kirsty, and others might be interesting, but nag away as I need all the help I can get. These things are:
  • Kitchen. I need to unleash my spirit of demolition and knock the wall down, and then put the new units in.
  • Garden. I've got a huge pile of decking which once is layed, I can spend my summer cooking BBQ food for my mates, family members and anyone who wanders past and fancies a burger and brewski.
  • Book. I've had a structure for a novel for ages, which I keep changing roaund a bit. Until I get some written and commented on , I've no idea if it's even worth persuing so better get some written.
  • Pictures. I took some fab pictures in Hawaii, which has told me I need to get out and take more.

That'll do too begin with, but remember people Nag Nag Nag!
