Posts Tagged ‘an evening with levison wood’

Okay so this post is a bit out of date LOL. I really didn’t get to do much blogging once baby arrived. However, since I am no longer living at ‘home’ I’m working my way through my drafts and updating as I go…..so this particular evening dates back to 23.01.2019….10 months ago LOL…blimey talk about slow….anyhow

At Cadogan Hall for the ‘Evening with Levison Wood’ in aid of Tusk Org. Looking forward to hearing more about the adventures of @levison.wood #WalkingtheNileย &ย #Arabia – disappointing to discover that the books are presigned and there’s no ‘book signing’ at the event as such, as I understood it would be. ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ I brought both mine with. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Ah well. Still, I’m sure the event will be interesting. (update: Mr Wood graciously agreed to sign my books after the event, which I thought was super cool) Actually its quite weird to be in #London again, haven’t been for what feels like ages. The last time I was at Cadogan Hall was for the Scarlet and Gold Military Band event a few years ago. Time just flies

A most enjoyable Evening with Levison Wood at Cadogan Hall listening to tales of derring do and adventure. Loved watching the snippets of film and hearing anecdotes of people and places while travelling around Arabia, as well as his work with Tusk. Its shocking how many beautiful animals are being slaughtered for the greed of a few. ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’” After my initial disappointment apropos the book signing, after the show, I decided that I would ask once again if it was at all possible for Mr Wood to autograph my books… One of the Tusk ladies asked on my behalf and I’m delighted to say that he very graciously agreed to sign them for me, albeit a bit hush hush. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š I shall treasure these books and one day I will read them to my little cherub Jamie and hopefully awaken a sense of adventure and world travel in his soul.

Travel travel travel… It really does change your perspective and perception of other people’s lives, values and beliefs. I wish more people could/would travel and adventure in other countries, I’m pretty certain the world would be a better place. Meanwhile, I’m back on Granny duty while Mummy and Daddy catch up on sleep, and as I write I have a wee baby boy cuddled up in my arms. I’ve been singing him a lullaby and he’s fast asleep. He’s already changing and I’m pretty sure he’s put on a bit of weight ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ergo my arm is getting tired from holding him up. I’ll have to do some weight lifting to keep up. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’• Thanks again to @levison.woodย for a most enjoyable evening and for signing my books ๐Ÿ“š

Said goodbye to my Mountain Warehouse backpack tonight. I bought it nearly 2 years ago intending to use it for theย #Camino2017ย pilgrimage from Porto toย #SantiagodeCompostelaย but bought theย #Ospreyย Tempest instead, which was much lighter, and therefore never used this one. I tried to sell it since I paid nearly a day’s pay for it ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฏ but no success. I was going to donate it to a local charity shop but the thought of someone who could afford to pay a decent price for a backpack, buying it for next to nothing, I decided instead to donate it to Centrepoint, the homeless people’s charity. They assured me it will go to a person who would get the best use of it. I’m well happy with that ๐Ÿ˜Š I’ve sent it onto its next journey with god-speed and good-luck.
