Well It’s been a while, hasn’t it?
It’s been a good few weeks since I last wrote a personal blog post. I’ve been fairly busy and distracted with the usual ‘life’ things. To be honest (as you can clearly see) I’ve not been active on here at all. Now, I could make an excuse of which I can come up with many, but there really isn’t one. So apologies but if we can all just ignore this break in transmission that took place, that would be great 😛
So what have I been up to? Well….mainly work if I’m honest. However, I’ve been on a small adventure.
Myself and my Dad attended a stag weekend in beautiful town of Windermere in the Lake District. The weekend Son-in-Law (to be) of my Dads oldest and closest friend, and was “meant” to be a quiet and civilised weekend for the Dad’s and Lad’s to get to know each other. It was 3 glorious days, and I mean glorious, as we had cracking weather for the time of year. Much ale was drank, all was merry, and my Dad and his friend reminisce about growing up together and much more which is always nice to see them do. We stayed in The Windermere Hotel, which was pleasant had some wonderful views and was more than adequate to put one’s drunken head down after a night out.
On the way home from the Stag weekend, me and my Dad decided to take the long way home and follow the coast round through Morecambe, Blackpool, Southport and then home to The Wirral. On the way home we discovered a motor museum.
The Lakeland Motor Museum (https://www.lakelandmotormuseum.co.uk/) was a fantastic discovery and holds an impressive collection of Motor vehicles, Motor Bikes, Bicycles as well as a plethora of motor paraphernalia. It also has an exhibition of Sir Malcolm and Donald Campbell’s Bluebirds (located inside another building on the museum site). All-in-all it was a very impressive museum, and the cost of entry was only £8.50 (for an adult) which was a bargain. Our original estimate of an hour to look around eventually finished up being almost 3 hours.
And that was that, that was the small but enjoyable adventure I had. Hopefully this is going to be the start of many more adventures.
In other (but blogging-centric) news. I have seen a quite a few films recently (which I think I might blog about separately), as well as TV shows (some new, some old – again I am in the process of writing a few post about them), and games (which, as you can guess by now will be blogged about). I’m also working on ways to push my blog posting count a little more than once in a blue moon.
One last thing which I am a little apprehensive to write about (hence why I’ve decided to tease you all), but at the same time I want to at least try and write something about it, so I’ll just leave it by letting you in on what my next personal blog post is going to be titled. Episode 4 – There’s someone special out there for everyone!
Till next time, keep on trucking!
Tell your friends I have a blog….and repeat it at any opportunity possible, they’ll love you for it! 😉
