Long, long overdue to a day out to Hunstanton! Always have so much fun when I go! Here’s a look back to times, I went with Hobbz and Tyler (2010) and myself Nick and Myself (2015 & 2018).

Still one of favourite photo sets!

This still has got to be one of my all time favourite photo sets! From the off, think you can tell why! Three of all all in wetsuits!

Can’t believe it happened way back in 2010! Maybe I need to see, if I can talk more lads into wearing wetsuits!!

Saturday – 14th August 2010

Can’t believe it’s been a whole year since Mike and myself broke up. At the time I was very unset indeed, now looking back it, I am sure of glad it happened. Since I have been having so much more fun, since then. Think that’s one of the reasons, I have been so bad at keeping my website updated. Been out doing, two many things. But I am going to try my best to keep this vlog updated a wee bit more from now on.

So now into today’s news. Since I have not updated my vlog, in a while you may not know, it was this time last year, I was doing the End to End cycle, between the Sunday 9th August and Monday 24th August. So I have set myself a goal, of making sure I get out every day, this month during the same dates, no matter what the weather is like. So far, so good. But of course, my dally mileage, will be no where near as good. I will be happy, if I do just 20 miles every day.

Then in the evening I was working at the dog track. Nothing really much, to say about that at all. It was a bit of boring night. The best thing about work, was going out for drinks, after words with Ashley, Mike (another Mike, not the ex) and Tyler. The plain was only to go out for a drink or two. But we all ended up staying out till gone 3am. It was great night, should do it more often. But I was glad to get back home, which by the time I had dropped Ashley off, did not happen, till around 4am.

Tuesday – 20th July 2010

Today Hobbz and Tyler and myself went to Hunstanton. It’s the most fun, I have had in a long time, not just because I got them both in wetsuits, but of course that did help. They are just two very nice lads, they are so easy to get on with.

Thursday – 6th May 2010

I got out of bed around 10:15am, washed, had breakfast and all the normal morning stuff. Then Chris, Nick, Mark and myself went to the local polling station to vote. Not going to say who we voted for, other than two of us voted for one party and two of us for another party. I will say one thing none of us voted for the party in power right now.

Once back from voting. I give my room and the rest of the house a quick clean. Ready for one of my friends coming out for going a cycle. It’s the first time he had been over, did did not want him seeing the place look in a bit of a mess.

Nick (not the same Nick I went voting with) turned up at around 12:45pm. A bit later than he said he would come, then his time keeping has never been very good.

We set off on our bikes at 1:05pm, I only know that, since I got that time off my GPS. Before I get into the cycle, I should really say why we’re doing the cycle in the first place. The cycle is the first of many, making sure that Nick is ready for doing the End to End cycle, August next year.

So back to the cycle now, we cycled from my place to Rutland Water, then around it. The cycle was 34.28 miles. It took us 3:04:26 (h:m:s), which is longer than it would have taken me by myself. But it was very good going for Nick, since it’s the first time he’s been out on his bike, in about 7 months, if not longer. Also think it’s the longest cycle he’s ever done. So well done Nick.

Once back from the cycle, Nick went back home. Then I sorted out my dinner and eat it while watching some TV. Still loving my 32″ TV, things look so much better, than on my old 14″ TV in my bed room :).

Then I had a shower and set off into town to meet up with Tyler, Mike and Nick. It was Tyler’s 18th birthday drinks. He turned 18th two weeks, ago but still looks around 12. Some people have all the luck!

Then I had a shower and set off into town to meet up with Tyler, Mike and Nick. It was Tyler’s 18th birthday drinks. He turned 18th two weeks, ago but still looks around 12. Some people have all the luck! As normal I was the first to get there. Nick turned up at around 8:30pm, so only about 30 minutes late, which is good for Nick. Tyler and Mike, turned up at well after 9:00pm. It was fun evening out.

I got home at around 12:00am, after giving Nick a lift back home. Then I watched some of the election results on the BBC HD channel with Mark, till around 2:30am, before going to bed.
