Civilisation and all that.

Today I woke up to find myself not under a canopy of trees or breathing fresh country air, my morning wash didn't take place in a stream and the water for my tea wasn't carried home then heated over a fire. Today I woke in my new flat in London encased in bricks and sleeping on a bed. To celebrate this turn of events I filled the cupboards with food and stayed in drinking tea, eating toast and watching Ray Mears on You Tube.

I think it might take a little while to get back into the swing of writing the blog, I have tried writing but everything came out all stilted and dull so I have deleted everything and will try again later.

Perhaps I could get away with making a list of good things and bad things.


Good Things


Running water.



Waterproof living space.

Having more than a pan and a knife to cook with.

Constant access to the internet.

Bad Things


Walls closing in.

No sunshine.


Everything is grey not green.

Constant access to the internet.

Having to wash up more than a pan and a knife.


I suspect that it might take a little time to get used to living indoors again and I imagine that most of my time will be spent earning money so that I can do so, it all seems to be a bit of a waste of time really.

I suggest come early Spring that you give up the flat and go live in the woods again! You seemed to find Winter difficult, but Spring and Summer great in the woods!
