Geocaching And Dunstablogging Again

About a month ago I had a doctors appointment and discovered that my blood pressure was slightly too high. I was told the easiest way to lower my blood pressure is exercising 5 times a week for a minimum of 20 mins. And by exercising he meant not just going through the motions but putting enough effort in so your body knows it.
So I'm going back to basics and starting Geocaching again. This time I will combine it with jogging and cycling to each location plus blogging about the things I see. I did something like this a few years ago with 5 minute walks around my home town, so this will be an updated 2016 edition.
We shall see how I get on.

The Job Interview From Hell!

It's 10 years to the day that the BBC managed to interview the wrong person!
You can see the interview here as funnily enough it's no longer on the BBC website, I wonder why?

5 Things that have happened to me since I last posted.

The Last time I had a go at  blogging was about 4 years ago.
So what's happened since then?

I lost my job!
I got made redundant from the place I worked for 10 years which was a bit of a shock!

I got new work.
Not a permanent job but agency work driving Fork Trucks at a distribution centre in Dunstable. It's ok, and the good thing is I only live 1 mile away do I don't need a car anymore.

I discovered Paracord!
It's amazing how one hobby (Geocaching) can morph into another hobby i.e, making and selling things made from Paracord. but more about that another time.

I make youtube videos
Mainly tutorials on how to tie knots, keyrings, and bracelets made from paracord.

I put on weight.
Sitting around on fork trucks all day and not doing much in the evenings helps you put on a lot of weight. I'm working on that one doing a lot more cycling and running to lose some lbs
