Yesterday was quite a day. Storm Doris caused a bit of stir. Such a fuss, and I was contacted by a local newspaper, who wanted to put my short video on their website. If we all get 15 minutes of fame, I have 14 minutes and 51 seconds still to go, the video is a 9 second clip (please, no more autographs!)
This morning was a different world. Full of the joys of the spring to come I left for work. With the sun shining, car windscreens deeply frosted, and the air very still, it made you feel glad to be alive. Feeling in such a chipper mood, I set off will wings on my feet. Minutes into the walk, I get a text. “Thas getten thisen in’t paper, lad” my very Yorkshire pal wrote. (translation- you are in the local rag). There I am, page 7.
Of course, this new celebrity status went straight to my head, and I decided to have a live podcast. Both viewers thought it went well 😉
To celebrate, Lily Virg and Phoebe are coming for tea, and the outlaws are coming too. Celebrity or not, I’m still doing the cooking.
then headed down into Milnsbridge. Just for fun, I let the facebook group choose my route. Of course uphill is much funnier than downhill, so up I went. Great views from up Blackmoorfoot road, so maybe it was a good idea.
Walking through Butternab Spring and Beaumont park was idyllic. Birds singing away, really peaceful and calm. I had photographs taken in Beaumont Park on my wedding day 15 years ago, this is the first time I have been back since. I don’t know why, its beautiful. Maybe I can persuade Kate to come back for a walk there with me.
Its been a long week, but an enjoyable one, I am undecided whether to continue making the daily montages of photos, or reduce it to perhaps weekly. Anyway, we will see. Here is today’s PhotoVid
At lunchtime, I will be at the tower again. That will be 5 days in a row at Huddersfield’s Castle Hill. Surely it is doing something for my fitness?
