This is not a test. Unless it is, and no one told me so I haven't revised, which means I'm going to fail. Thanks for that.

On archiving & tidying up

I'm going to delete some/most of the blog archives. This has been a great space for me to make friends, start things & share happiness & pain in the past, but I'm not totally happy with having it all out there now. I've moved on from that place & the knowledge that those statements of pain & desperation are still online makes me sad.

So, if there's anything in particular you think is worth keeping let me know, otherwise it will probably be a slash and burn affair as I don't have time nor inclination to read through the 4 (wow!) years of content. I will endeavour to save most of the posts on feminism/politics/society though. x

I can't imagine deleting the blog altogether. I have a total love affair with self publishing. Maybe a slight refocusing (and redesign for funs) is required instead.

Vignette: this morning

Me: Is my face getting too thin?
L: No, it's thinner, but not too thin
Me: So I don’t look like a sunken cheeked zombie?
L: No, you look beautiful (*)

L: It’s funny that you’re worried about getting too thin, and I’m worried about getting fat.

This weekend I...

  • drove up to Northumberland
  • put up my tent singlehandedly, in the dark
  • led my first routes for years, including a 'severe' which was a doddle
  • ticked my first outdoor 6a boulder problem
  • laughed and laughed at my friend's story of waking to find slugs on his face
  • temporarily stole my friends sleeping bag
  • got a tick and a mosy bite. insects are grim.
  • ate cereal in high winds
  • got chapped lips from said winds
  • took my tent down, singlehandedly in the high winds, without it blowing away (unlike my companions - and there were two of them working on their tent)
  • found out I need to go to Cornwall next weekend, never a chore :)

What did you get up to over the Bank Holiday?
