Ross Noble

Yesterday (Thursday), me and Matthew went to York to watch Ross Noble at the York Grand Oprah House.

We set off at 2pm, thinking it would be a nice, cheap, half hour bus ride to Preston train station. What would you pay for a half hour bus ride? £2.00? £3.50? £4.50?

No, we were well and truly ripped off. £5.35! ONE WAY!

Look at the proof!

We couldn't use any flash photography during the show, so I had to settle for a picture of the giant inflatable Ross Noble....

But, take my word for it, it was good :)

Then, after a night in a hostel dorm, sharing with about 8 other people, I managed to get about 30 minutes sleep; thanks to the hyper guy on the bunk-bed below me moving non-stop throughout the night. I was tempted to hold a pillow over his face in return for a couple of hours sleep. I resisted.

Anyway, today we spent a few hours walking around York, constantly trying to find our way around the maze of streets, before getting the train back to 'Preston pissing Preston' where Matty bought some climbing shoes which we took for a test drive at the YMCA....

No videos, sorry.

Southport Airshow 2007

-17 °C

Last Saturday I spent the day on Southport beach.

Me and Ryan turned up at about 11am, expecting the first fly-by pretty soon, but we saw nothing more than a few model planes circling around and around and around in front of us for almost 3 hours!

Once the show started, it did get pretty good though. Some of the things we managed to see were;

  • The Red Arrows
  • Typhoon
  • Hawk
  • Lynx Helicopter
  • Battle of Britain Memorial Flight
  • Chinook

New Pannier Bag

Just arrived!

-17 °C

A few days ago, my new Pannier Bag arrived!

50l, with plenty of pockets. All I need to do now is buy a rack, and get the money together to go on a trip so I can actually use it!

Anyway, here it is in all it's glory-
