Chiki Ceramiki

Chiki Ceramiki

I decided it might be nice to get my mum something personal for her birthday, so we decided to go to Chiki Ceramiki to make some handmade plates.

Sawtry Splurge

Sawtry Splurge

A new personal best for the number of cache finds in a day, without really expecting it.

Dublin Jaunt

Dublin Jaunt

A business trip to Dublin for two full days, with plenty of slack time on the travelling days. Should be plenty of opportunity to finish off the run for February.

Sherington

Sherington

Another day with a spot of caching required to fill up the matrix. Kas had just got back from a long run and Izzy was at a party and Ami couldn’t be bothered.

East Midlands Airport

East Midlands Airport

Filling a slot on the Matrix by walking around the second biggest airport in the Midlands.

Only in Olney

Only in Olney

I needed to fill a slot on the Matrix and to the west of Olney are caches set on two different days I need for the “366 Days Placed” list too.

Shocott Shuffle

Shocott Shuffle

Sunday afternoon and some planned cache time, having sorted out schedules with the lady of the household. What to do and where to go ?

Ampthill Amble

Ampthill Amble

A slot to fill in The Matrix and I managed to persuade Ami to come (well, technically, it was bribery rather than persuasion, but it’s a fine line with an 8 year old).

Route Canal

Route Canal

A quick dash up to Stoke Bruerne on a grey Sunday afternoon in early February. It was after 2pm already when I arrived, so I had limited time.

Stowe Maintenance

Stowe Maintenance

I’d had a couple of warnings about my geocaches at Stowe being in need of some TLC, so I decided it was about time I paid a visit and fixed a couple of things.

New Year Wander

New Year Wander

New Year’s Day, and all is quiet. Well, not completely, but mainly. And it was wet everywhere, after having rained incessantly for the previous few days.
