This & That... and a Merry Christmas

Maybe I should change the name of this blog to 'Londonbackpacker's non-walking pages' as I haven't done any real walking since September. :(

Although I have been urban walking, four weeks ago my scooter broke down and I`ve spend the last four weeks trying to get a part for it, only to be told today that there is a shortage of the part and I will have to wait until the new year.

I`ve been walking about 1 1/2 miles a day to work for the past four week. Not great mileages; I know but it's more than I was doing.

Although it doesn't seem to be making me any fitter or lighter, admitedly the walk is broken down into two parts with a bus journey in the middle.

The bus journey amazes me with the people who use it. Every morning the same person gets the same bus with me and travels to the next stop, if the bus is late they wait for it the same as me, but the really amazing thing is that the next bus stop is only 300 or 400 yards away.

Surely they can walk this!!!!!!!!!!!!

No wonder we're turning into a nation of fatties.

Anyways enough moaning from me :)

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to anyone who is still reading.

New Blogger

Seems like I`ve been neglecting my blog :(.

True be told, I haven't had much to say (write) anything and I`ve been really busy at work and not a lot of time for the internet.

While I`ve been away a new UK walking blogger have appeared.

Weird Darren (of OM fame) has a new site. Darren's blog is mainly about his preparation for his up and coming TGO challenge.
