Off Work/Uni with Man Flu. :(

On the plus side just bought a nice looking jacket from that webtogs site (50% off) :D . arrival ETA Thursday cant wait since mine has seen better days and im too poor to afford a new one at full price. :lol:

Also just booked a week long trip up in the Ullapool region for summer so having a look at potential climbs...

Work eh? I should be using this quiet time to get on with some myself, but instead I keep trawling through my usual internet haunts in the hope of some activity :?

Today I have disproved the views of an Irish historian who commented on Scottish religious history - the American in me feels fairly proud :lol: . However, I'd much rather be on a hill somewhere.
