Yeah some things have a way of working themselves out eh? I’ve been on the dole for about 5 weeks now and not been outdoors since December (climbing that is) so what better way to celebrate having no money and no recent trad history by going to that hallowed crucible of English climbing – the Lakes. Whilst there I got offered a job. Success! I move up on Monday and should hopefully be there till around December. So if you’re around in Langdale and fancy a pint, come into the Old Dungeon Ghyll and say ‘how do marra’ (that’s the closest translation I can get to of Cumbrian).
Did some really cool, and some not so really cool, routes at Stanage on Thursday. Good times.
Also, jobs are like buses. No sooner had I been offered that job up in Langdale then I had no less than 4 phone calls either offering interviews or work within the space of 2 days. Bastards! Think I got the best deal out of it though. Quids in.
I’m gonna be posting from Jonny-land come this time next week – that’s if I have any finger tips left! Best get practicing with a pencil between the teeth.
