A morning parkrun followed by breakfast and an unexpectedly slow drive along some French motorways.

Bored? Oh!

A day of driving through France collecting occasional geocaches, ending at a spectacularly pretty chateau.

An account of our 16-day family holiday in 2019, in which we travelled to the very bottom of France and back up.

Aberdeenshire Mega

Aberdeenshire Mega

The annual UK Mega geocaching event was being held in Aberdeen. I know someone who lives there.

Eltisley and Caxton

Eltisley and Caxton

Wandering around Cambridgeshire. Well, why not? Especially as I hadn’t done much caching in 2019.

Kitchen Refit

Kitchen Refit

Technically not DIY, but definitely a home improvement. Paying someone else to do it was a very wise decision.

Heidi Rose Bunny Hop

You’ve got more rabbit than Sainsbury’s. Why don’t you get it off your chest?…etc. Rabbit, rabbit!

Mickey’s Mystery Tour

Mickey’s Mystery Tour

A rodent with massive ears. Blimey! Who could resist a day of caching to draw a picture of Mickey Mouse?

Titchmarsh

Titchmarsh

A mildly disappointing lack of diminutive gardening experts, but quite a lot of plastic containers.

Devil’s Dyke

Devil’s Dyke

We didn’t see the devil himself, but he left a very big hole in the ground last time he was here.
