In reply to Tall Clare:

I went for an operation to get screws and stuff taken out of my ankle last week.

So as predicted conditions now improving so most of my mates going climbing just to rub it in even more.

A weekend of cleaning the house is long overdue. I have also got an added incentive as I have just found out my Mums coming to stay over Christmas. Magic


cheers

Apparently we're off to the seaside. I've been told to pack a bucket and spade, though I feel that may be a little optimistic.

Definitely go for the walk if conditions are good. You can shop when it's pissing down!

In reply to Gazlynn: I feel your pain... I'm scheduled for an OP on monday and was contemplating getting out this weekend but the thought of injuring myself in another area and therefore jeopardising the surgery is putting me off...

Then triathlon Christmas party and cross country race in the morning.
For me these are not compatible.

Looks good for Brin boulders tomorrow and then Torridon on Sunday if I've got any skin left.And my back is feeling better than it has for months :-)

In reply to AdrianC:

True. Are you thinking I should be aiming to bury the penguins in the sand, or building fortresses for them to protect the east coast against marauding invaders of the polar bear variety?

Hahaha, reminds me of Sunday morning in Hathersage.

Lots of poeple in very expensive, spanking new, brightly coloured alpine kit eating cakes in the cafe at Outside then going home!

Maybe a bucket and an ice axe to hack through the frozen sand?

Lovely - winter walks by the crashing waves, low sunlight glittering. Sigh.

I'm singing christmas carols tonight in a shopping centre...

Off to HQ to watch England hammer New Zealand, unfortunately before the women's game I have to watch the men get roundly thrashed by McCaw and his mates.

In reply to Tall Clare:

Saturday - watching the perfect grit conditions from the inside of the BMC National Council meeting - which goes on all day. Ok, ok, I volunteered so I shouldn't grumble. Hoep to get outside and finally have a pop at taking some star trails in the evening.

Sunday - freedom and probably Peak bouldering with various Sheffield 'usual suspects'.

If I didn't have the NC, I'd be in either North Wales or the Lakes (probably the latter) having a snowy scramble with my camera - not much (other than hard mixed) sounds in climbable condition fro mthe variosu reports.

PP.

Beers at the Clachaig tonight.

A quick blast on a couple of multi-pitch routes at Polldubh tomorrow morning (dependant on how many beers i have tonight!)

Sleeping up the top of something on Saturday night to try and get some nice sunset/sunrise pics given the decent weather we seem to be having.

Me too. Unexpectedly offered a ticket by my ever thoughtful boss, Steve, at White Spider Climbing.

(I think a ticket to Twickers is well worth a shameless plug )

Trying to finish Christmas shopping (local shops and online and not much now to go). Paying my credit card bill (and delighting in the fact that I can pay it off this month). Booking my Christmas Day lunch. More films. Forcing 3 different kinds of pills down cat gullet. Oh I know how to live.

Ultraviolet and the new Spiderman.

Would have loved to but back can't sit that long and cinema audiences don't take kindly to people getting up and wandering about. Enjoy.

Last night I was working
Tonight I am drinking wine and falling asleep
Tomorrow we are doing some present shopping since I'm doing the run down to the Welsh relatives next week and won't be down again before Christmas.
Tomorrow will also involve beer, roast dinner and wine!

Ooh, and we are sorting out an Andes trip too!

The Milla Jovovich one with the great line from the bad guy "You got haemo blood on me. It is ON"....? Hope so. One of the silliest films ever.

I hope you noted that the first hour was a total remake of Teen Wolf :-)

Ultraviolet - I'd had it on the shelf for months. Glad I finally got around to wathcing it. Was fun.

Spiderman - You make a fair point there. Fell asleep partway through this so will be watching the rest of it later.
