Dirty Boots

My dirty boots have been sitting outside my flat door since November.

I’m the sort of person that will leave the dirty boots on a newspaper, outside the door for months on end. I do intend to clean them eventually!.  The last walk I did was especially muddy and wet, so I figured it would be a while before I venture on a muddy walk. I have to say I’m not keen on muddy walks, it’s ok every now and again; hence the neglected walking boots!

Walking along the coast, North and South

At the beginning of December, I visited South Shields and Newcastle, and got to enjoy the fresh air. I never get tired of this part of the UK, it is my birth town and I feel at home here.

The day after Boxing Day I walked a circular walk from Seasalter on the beach to Whitstable. We had  a little Browse around the town and a couple of drinks in Handsome Sams’ Bar- a micro pub based in the Centre of town.

 Take a walk in their shoes

At least I have a choice about going out for an eight mile walk. Spare a thought for those who have walked thousands of miles trying to escape war and conflict.

An interactive website set up by channel 4 shows the routes taken and choices available. It’s bleak but real. The scale of the humanitarian disaster is something that cannot be ignored.

Planning walks & looking forward!

I have a planned walking weekend In Derbyshire in the spring that is with the new Meet -Up group I joined up with earlier this year. I will also be leading my favorite walk again in June next year which will be Newhaven to East Dean via the Seven Sisters Sussex.

 I have finally succumbed to rejoining Facebook. I have reactivated my account which is under my then pseudo name Julie Jameson.


That person was my alter ego or something like that, she is from another era, but seemingly resurfaced. I don’t seem to be able to erase my account completely without writing  a letter to Facebook explaining myself! and then having to wait for approval , so for the time being she holds the reins.

As well though I have created a page just for this blog, and if I have done things correctly, this should appear on my Facebook page when I publish it as it does on twitter.

Ok folks.

RIP Lemmy…

Until then


keep it real!
