Having some ZZZZZZZzzzzzz's


There is no chance of snapping a snooze here for today's prompt at HS:MS as I'm home all alone, the dogs are constantly bouncy, the dragon only sleeps at night and I am wide awake so a delve into the archives was the order of the day. I am going to be in sooo much trouble if he sees that I have posted this picture so ssshhhh nobody say a word. This was taken on the Ferry over to France last summer and yes he was snoring.




Yesterday we went on a mammoth geocache in the form of a 4.5 mile circular walk which started on a disused railway in Audley. We found most of the ones we went to look for but failed on a couple. The first one we had to look for was next to a roundabout, a pub and a shop so how we were supposed to do this one without being spotted I'm not sure and just to make it that little bit easier it was a nano cache which means it is about the size of a broad bean. Predictably this one didn't get found.
The next few were easy as they were 35mm film boxes and then it started to go wrong when we met 3 old ladies and their dogs. These old ladies were stood right next to the cache as their Yorkshire Terrier had got itself completely lost and the sausage dog was stuck in the undergrowth. We helped, well Matt tried to, and then we waited for about 15 minutes before they decided to move on but as soon as we started looking someone else came so we gave up and moved ourselves on to the next cache. Where, would you believe it, the 3 moldies (Kyle's words not mine) were stood chatting to a friend so we gave up on that one before we started. The rest we found without too many problems as no one else seemed stupid enough to trek 2 miles across muddy fields in January so we didn't have to try and look inconspicuous. We did have to avoid a few, rather large bulls and lots of mud which I wasn't too successful with as I managed to get totally stuck at one point which is about the time I discovered that my nice funky wellies have 3 holes in them- yuck.

The geocaching adventure sounds good... apart from the moldies (love that) being in the way.
We found a cache by accident a couple of weeks ago... must get into this, I think we would really enjoy it as a family
