    You really couldn't,t predict my life.It is random but at the same time is following a path that is so familiar to me ....It is great to be back home in the Green City with Willow and Oscar.So much has happened since I returned from my last adventure and as usual I have lots and lots of pictures to sort through in order to set the scene.

    In Desperate times...My Silky saves the day!

    Great question!!...This thread is based on one day when all I had was £1 and no work and what I did to change that and It is a continuation...There is little work where I am up North and when times are desperate I will travel and stay wherever that journey takes me.All un planned and on the spur of the moment.If I had to describe myself in one word,it would be "Exhuberant" and I look for the positive in every negative.I am the eternal optimist.If i could get full time (on the books) work in Durham i would really be living the dream but until then...this life pays my tax..insurance..fuel and food... If anyone out there has anything going in the area of Arb training message me..I,d love to hear from you so I can follow my dream.I,ll travel anywhere....

    Youngsters in comparison to my beloved Llangernyw Yew (4,500-5,000 years old) but wonderful trees and I had to drag myself away from them.I could have sat amongst them all day...
