The weather has been pretty dismal here today, heavy rain for a while which then turned to snow, and it's been very cold. Thankfully it has dried up a bit now, at just after 9pm. I will still wrap up though when I take Henry choc lab out for his fourth and last walk before bedtime. My day has been punctuated with dog walks and hopping on and off the trainer. I didn't get to make the yogurt because I forgot about it this morning. Will do it tomorrow if I remember.
I must knuckle down and get my route sorted for the next long walk, I am aiming for mid April to start it. I've been reading up on where to visit. There are so many interesting places in Yorkshire, I might have to meander a little, along some squiggley lines to fit it all in. I've started by sticking a few pins in the map, starting at one side of the country and finishing at the Humber Bridge on the East Coast.
Loosely the route will take in Morecambe, Bolton le Sands, Carnforth, Kirkby Lonsdale, Hawes, Pateley Bridge, Ripon, Boroughbridge, York, Pocklington, Market Weighton, Beverley, and the Humber Bridge. This may change as I do more research. I've no idea how many miles it will be but I am aiming for at least 150. Should be good.
So, what else have I been doing today, reading this book. I love Jo Brand, her humour tickles me pink. I didn't read her first book which covers her life up to the time she was a psychiatric nurse, this one starts from the time she became a stand up comedian.
I wrote to her once when I was doing my trucking talks. I seemed to have a knack of making people laugh, so I asked her if it would be possible for me to adapt some of my material for a stand up comedy routine. She wrote back with some helpfull comments. I gave it a try at the comedy club in Gainsborough, and I must say it was much harder than it looks. I decided it wasn't for me, as I found it very difficult to fit everything I wanted to say in a six minute slot, ha ha, gas bag that I am :o)
