So just earlier on this very afternoon that I’m posting this, my mum and I went on a nice little walk out down our local nature reserve seen as it was a nice day. Nothing too special, really, just felt like getting a bit of real world into our systems…
…but then, we were starting to head back home…now, to head back home we have to head up a road, uphill, that cuts through a small, kiddies educational farm of sorts…and it’s surrounded by fields for its horses.
Now, my mum was watching some common-as-mud sparrows fly over a farm gate into one of these fields…and then she spotted something in the middle of the feild and called me over.
You know, sometimes I can just swear on my life that the creatures of nature always know when you don’t have a camera on you, and this is definitely one of those times multiplied by some brain-busting sum of numbers.
I’m talking broad daylight, out in the open slap bang in the middle of the feild, some 50 meters or so away, scratching its ear with its hind leg, bold as you like, 8th wild fox I’ve seen in my entire lifetime so far.
I swear on my life I’m not even making this up.
I…I…I just can’t even…
It looked to be in pretty good health too…tail as bushy as you like. Glorious orange coat.
And all these other people were just waltzing on by not even paying attention. No idea they were just meters away from one brilliant example of nature at its finest.
What a spot! Wooooo!
Now that I got that out my system…I suppose I should use this opportunity to update you all on what’s new…er, let’s see…
…well first off, the Friday before last, My mum and I went on a trip up to a place called Rochdale. We used it as an excuse to ride on a tram from Manchester. Cost a bit less than we thought, too. I thought it’d be £5.60 return, turned out to be £4.20 return. Bargain!
It was an interesting little walk round Rochdale itself. Had sommat to eat in a café, had a nosey round the chartity shops…managed to find a new toaster for cheap in one of ‘em to replace our old, broken one. Looks real snazzy, the new one, an’ all.
We then stopped off at a fire service museum and had a look round there, then got the tram back to Manchester and the bus back ‘ome.
Next…well, my stint as a euro head host for a club was short-lived. I was doing alright when it was just a couple of hours in the club each day minimum, and do call-outs for covers. But then the club got an upgrade…and they were doing a celebration of the new building…and all of a sudden upper management started telling e I had to be there all evening until stinking MIDNIGHT!
According to them that’s what they told us from the very start…but I don’t remember anything abot that, and neither does my SL love, who was offered a position as my assistant shortly after I was taken on board. I thought they only picked her because of me…and I thought she’d at least struggle at first…but she really surprised me by taking to it like a duck to water!
But either me nor she fancied standing around in the club all evening ’till midnight, so we bailed ourselves out.
It’s just about come full circle. I’m starting to feel ready to return to the industrial club I’m “taking a break” from…maybe another couple of weeks or so yet…
…also I may have been a bit too hasty about counting my relationship with my current SL love relationship on its way out in my previous post. Maybe this one could be the one that finally works…like I said, it feels like a culimnation of all I learned from my previous relationships, and she’s definitely the most compatible mate I’ve had yet, and I still greatly enjoy spending time with her, even when we don’t do much…we justg waste hours snuggling, and it never gets boring. I guess that’s what love is.
I also uploaded a couple more vids to my Youtube…just a little something I threw together of a trip upon The East Lancs Railway I went on the summer preceding my trip to Scotland.
I’m gonna be uploading one more vid tomorrow…of a trip I took to Knowsley Safari Park back in summer 2011.
Those are all the vids I have ready to be uploaded right now…after that, I’m gonna start work on a script for the video tour of my home…might as well make a start on that as soon as possible. The quicker I get that recorded, edited and uploaded, the sooner my OCD will let me buy my new computer.
Well I think that’s all I have to update you on for this entry.
So until next time,
Ciao for now,
Cordially, The Blue Fox Thom.
