WOW! Just worked out, I’ve been running this website for 24 years! I started it, when I studying computing at Stow College. When I was only 16/17, so around the time, I started to come out!

Who would think, all these years later. The website is still going and has become, a very, very big part of my life.

So big thanks, to everyone who has been following me, all that time! Love you all! 🙂 xx

That’s me just ordered some new walking boots! Since it’s getting, way to cold and wet, to wear my summer ones. It will be nice, having dry feet again, during my long walks with Cooper.

Getting them from Millets. Full price is £135. But getting them for just £79.20. Since right now, they have an extra 20% off all sale items.

Great Australian Railway Journeys (BBC 2/HD | 8:00pm to 9:00pm | Saturday 9th November 2019)

Michael Portillo embarks on an adventure aboard the transcontinental Indian Pacific Railway, from Adelaide to Perth. Along the way he hears the story of an enterprising 19th-century Briton with a murky past who made his money growing vines, strikes it lucky in one of the most lucrative goldfields in the world and pays a flying visit to the doctor to hear how patients in remote Western Australia are cared for. He also hears how Edward VIII was caught up in a train accident near Bridgetown and learns about a child migration programme that cast a dark shadow on the history of both the UK and Australia.

Roaming in the Wild (BBC Scotland/HD & BBC iPlayer only | 8:00pm to 8:30pm | Monday 11th November 2019)

Situated in Lochaber, Loch Morar is the deepest loch in Scotland and a place teeming with mystery, while its surrounding mountains are both rugged and remote. Wildlife film-maker Andrew O’Donnell and his friend Mark Taylor explore this stunning wilderness by foot and by packraft.

Steam Train Britain (Yesterday | 8:00pm to 9:00pm | Thursday 14th November 2019)

At the East Lancashire Railway, the annual Race the Train event gets under way – with athletes of all abilities taking on the 11-mile course from Bury to Rawtenstall.

The World’s Most Scenic Railway Journeys (Channel 5/HD | 8:00pm to 9:00pm | Friday 15th November 2019)

Bill Nighy narrates a trip through Wales’ highest peaks and deepest valleys. Starting in Pwllheli in the north west, the route heads along the lines that were built during the slate industry’s heyday. At Porthmadog, the journey briefly switches to the reconstructed steam trains of the Welsh Highland National Heritage Railway to Minffordd station. Nearby is the village of Portmeirion, famous for its role in the classic TV series The Prisoner. Rejoining the Cambrian Line, local farmers reveal what the railway means to them, before the route takes in the seaside resort of Aberdovey.

Sad to know, that in the next number of weeks, all of LNER’s HSTs will be coming off the ECML. Really going to miss, seeing and of course hearing the Class 43’s, powering up and down the line.
