I’m back. ..well let’s hope

Ok folk’s,

you’ll have gathered from the lack of post’s last year that my entire life was turned upside down and inside out.
Well, what can I tell you. .. apart from  the crew is no more and the Republic is a lonely spot if you’re on your own :?:?:?
My new perspective on life  started shortly after new year and as a result  it’s time to start scribbling stuff down again :). .

Although. . I kinda focused on the Facebook page last year, adding bitsa photos and video. . This has resulted in a healthy following  and now has a bit of a life of it’s own.   It got to big for me alone so  I had to bring my brother  (and best friend ) on board to help.

This will help free me up to start back with the blogging  ..win ..win.
I’ve also got a  big milestone coming up, it’s 30 year’s at the cloud factory  and as a truly class company to work for, they’re marking the event with a large gratuity,  happy days 😆😆.

This is going to be spent on a decent camera so that I can post some class photos,  both here and on the  old  FB thingy. … more win win :):)

Anyway checking back through the photos I’ve taken on this ere mobile phone  during the past 4 month break, :)I can safely say that the end of 2014 was a tad dull. … however, here’s some bit’s and bob’s

A trip out to see Kasabian at the metro arena Withthe Macabees in support… Kasabian was fantastic, well worth the ticket. . But by Christ, where they loud 😆😆

And an afternoon spent looking at some old map’s. . Pre kielder reservoir and pre kielder forest. .. interesting  what the forestry commission ploughed up and destroyed. ..
That’s going to be a future subject for the blog.

  1. good to see you back. I nearly deleted you out of my favourites !!

    I realised you must have had a tough year last year. Onwards and upwards.

  2. Wow, I just love the scenic photos. Before emigrating to Toronto, we had a cottage at Byrness village. The cottages were originally owned by the forestry commission and the views and walks were fab. I really miss that.
