We started our day in Whitby by being dropped off at the Abbey carpark … not that we were going in at £6.50 per person and us wanting to visit Whitby itself!
Hello, my name is Willow and I’m slightly OCD. I love taking a walk along the edge of Derwentwater, Keswick, along a path to Friar’s Crag. There are a couple of places where I virtually always stop to take a photo or three. I’m tempted to say I always stop there but … that’s too risky The OCD aspect shows here, there is a small bush growing in a stone wall where I have stood to take photos for many years. These are since I first got a digital camera back in 2004 up to a walk I took just this Friday gone, 6th March 2012. Often the visit is sparked by the pagan calendar of the year, especially the solstices and equinoxes, at others it’s simply for the joy of the walk. Enjoy

These words were the refrain in a song that was playing on the radio at 20:07 this evening as I was finally driving home … so I listened to them and didn’t turn into the shops. Well let’s be honest it wasn’t the hairdressers or post office I was interested in, especially as they were closed … no it was the chippy!!!
Driving tests came up in the conversation this last week when my brother and his family were up and we did some reminiscing … I remember being positive the reason I failed my test the first time was because it was a lovely sunny day while it seemed to be raining nearly every time I went out while learning. When I had my second driving test it was pouring down … I passed no problem lol.
My Mam says that my Grandma told me to wear a short skirt (she who didn’t even approve of chewing gum!) for my test and apparently I was most indignant and insisted NO I was going to pass on my own merit thank you very much, and wore jeans. I don’t remember this at all but I’ll believe her, Mam might not remember what she phoned me for but she has a good memory for things of yore!
Oakleaf Lammas Camp 2005
Oakleaf is the last weekend in July, I know it’s a while away yet but I get excited about it early lol. Anyhooo point being I was saving something about the camp and came across this, the file name caught my eye, it’s called Oakleaf Camp 2005 ~ my story about it. This was the very first time I went to Oakleaf, this year will be fourth
