    I love my sat nav some times I get in the car and just drive in totally random directions till I am hopelessly lost then turn it on and let it guide me home.

    I am unsure if I posted my fbg today or not so here it is any way 4.9 on the prickometer I have switched meters to my contour next one for now spent several fruitless hours trying to recharge it with a USB charger before I remembered the meter does not have a rechargeable battery.

    So glad you were treated in style. Poo bags - a great purchase. So many public loos closed - I have a Radar key

    A very magical mountain range - unfortunately crammed with tourists since they built hanging walkways all over it.

    Yep. I do that on my bike - explore little back roads, sometimes with green stuff growing along them - then when I want to go home, switch on the satnav.

    Perhaps I should have typed doggy poo bags. Although, when you think of all the public loos being closed, maybe you were not far off the mark.

    Hi jjraak,
    I guess that kind of behaviour in London is ok, but we would get locked up in the North! :)

    Very inviting art, a paradise to escape to, excellent light especially catching the palm leaves.

    That sounds like fun. I did something similar with the children when they were young - when we were hopelessly lost we would get out the maps - unfortunately no sat navs then.

    Sat navs are brilliant - especially for someone like me who has no problem getting hopelessly lost.

    Good that you remembered that the battery wasn't rechargeable.

    A little update on my appointment at QMC Nottingham tomorrow Judith was adamant that I should not go so we or I should say she phoned the hospital this morning and they fully understood our reservations and also said they had not fully appreciated the distance I have to travel and are rescheduling my appointment for another date. :)
