Busy few months

its been a super busy couple of month's. i guess i have not been blogging much because i have been using facebook to share photos and things instead of the blog ….i know i know i said i would never use facebook , but it has just been easier but to be perfectly honest i dont like it too much i much prefer the blog .

so what have i been up to in my absence? well let me say ….lots!

i took possession of my new apartment in September , spent ages buying all the things you need , cutlery , pans, pots and things …was crazy for a while . i spent a few days down there and finally got a painter to paint it after getting quotes by crazy people with astronomical prices i was finally recommended someone from a friend and he is painting it as we speak , set to be completed thursday. though the colour i chose was not really what i intended, i intended to have a soft off white colour , but was told that it goes darker when you put the paint on the wall so i aired for lighter and went for seapearl from benjamin moore …….it turned out to be very very white …….oh well not sure how it will look with the classic design of the apartment and the furniture that came with it ….. i guess white is neutral …right?????

movie wise i have watched a few movies via on demand cable, i am loving hbo.
i watched a great movie at the weekend called surveilance . it is about a serial killer being tracke by the FBI , it is directed by the guy that did twin peaks …it really is a good movie.

Also i finally gave in and watched the indiana jones and the crystal skull….. i hated all the other indiana jones movies but finally watched this and really liked it …a very good entertaining movie.

outdoor news.
we went camping up at owl creek the weeekend of canadian thanks giving.
it was nice and sunny , wich at that time of year means very cold nights , and not being really geared up for it with only a +6c rated sleeping bag and the temp going down to -4c i did freeze my ass of . after the first night of freezing i wasnt sure i woudl stay the second night but the sun came out and we did some fishing it was nice, we made sure we had lots of wood for the campfire to stay warm that evening and it was fun .but in the nighti did freeze my ass of again and  woke up and decided to get up just before light and get the fire going to get some warmth and we also had to set off early so half asleep i wandered out of the tent and looked toward my friends tent and the river when i saw it right there on the bank of the river a furry hump sticking over the banking and with the only place to go was over my friends tent so i pulled out my knife and went to wards it to scare it away ,with each step my heart pounded more and more the adrenalin flowing ……. as i opened my mouth to shout i saw it was not the bear that i thought it was but a moss covered boulder that had been there all the time  and i had not noticed ……so funny ….at least i was warm then funny what poor light and your mind can play tricks …..i think maybe my fear of encounting a bear plays too .

ok well i think i have covered most things , i always remember things i should have mentioned later .

for now bye and i will try to write more often
