Some weeks are long, some weeks are short, some weeks are monotonous and some weeks brimming with events. Do you ever get times when there is just so much to get done, cram in or achieve is a short space of time? I guess last week was one of those long, eventful ones.
- I completed my annual review at work which went pretty well followed swiftly by….
getting a new job (although not quite related to the 1st point)
- selling a lot of old gear and other bits….
allowing me to buy a few new gear items (to be revealed at a later date!)
- having some really great conversations with fellow outdoor enthusiasts leading to…..
some interesting thoughts for trips, meets and gear (see earlier point re new gear)
- Planning a long walk…
and finding out that flexibility is key to avoiding disappointment in the outdoors
- Meeting up unexpectedly with a bunch of old friends….
and immediately plotting some social outdoor trips away in the spring and summer
- lastly that time is relative….
and that I have had a really good week which has just flown by
I will give a write up of the walk I did in the next few days. Also I will take up a bit of a theme that Robin has started over on his blog about all his kit and the reasons which he likes them. Its been really thought provoking (added to the discussions held on line on various social networks but mainly Twitter) and made me start to revaluate what I like about my gear, what I dont and what my aspirations are for the next year. More on that later. For now I will leave you with a picture from my latest walk…..
