Back in the 21st Century

Well that was probably the longest time I have not regularly written about the the day to day life I live in North Wales. The short story is I bought a house moved in and had to wait for a month to get broadband up and running.

I’d like to say that I have spent the time out climbing, however I am sad to say I know a lot more about DIY now than I did 4 weeks ago. Take today, nice enough to get out for a quick route, but I choose to remove part of my kitchen and rebuild it. The day before I made shelves and had to cut two large pieces of wood in half with a hand saw, knackering work and I am now a 9mm rope short as I used it to hang said shelves.

The closest I seem to have come to climbing was onto the roof of the house to install a new aerial and see what I need to do to the chimney to repair it. The month of line also means I was unable to work on the rockfax guide. Although team rockfax came up here and we managed to get a few crag shots and action shots for the guide. Which is looking great.

I have also managed to write a few things for Climber Magazine that should appear over the next few months. So keep your eyes out for the Fear Test next month.

Hopefully getting away from the DIY tomorrow for some coastal climbing, I am in the process of review a few pairs of climbing shoes for UKC so I have three of the four pairs to work through, before rushing back to get a double, double glazing sales pitch as I have two companies coming round two hours apart, my bet is they turn up together.

Hopefully back on here some more, although I doubt I have been missed.
