Everyone is different I guess.. but I found that expensive toys meant little to me ?
I much prefer living a stress free life.. doing what I love doing ..which is exploring the countryside and living close to nature. It doesn’t cost me much to clamber around the hills ..discovering new places that I never knew about .. then researching the history of such places.
When on my safaris, I keep costs low by living out the car .. my wants are minimum .. and I waste very little.
Although I am not quite 60 years of age .. I chose to give up the rat race .. and I have never felt so fit and healthy.. and perfectly happy too. I can clamber the cliffs as fast as people half my age.
Normally I explore with my SIB during the summer months..
And supplement my diet with fish I catch ..
While staying in a tent .. sometimes I even enjoy the company of others too
But with such a poor summer this year..I have kept to the hills rather than the coast .. and it is nice to see them with some green for a change.
Sometimes I will supplement my savings by painting what I see and then sell the picture to people who enjoy such materialistic things. I have had a pound once or twice for one or two of my photographs too.
And I guess ..sometimes ... like everyone else .. I get a little bored. Some may say ... Im wasting my life away ..and perhaps I am ?
I do know all is not perfect in my world .. in fact, I recently had a fall into a deep gully... and have spent the last week in the house nursing a damaged knee. But next week..I will be off again..and who knows..if the weather improves.. I may go by SIB this time...
But ... until then.. I wonder what I can do ?
Hey..I know.. I can post some of my drivel on Ribnet
Wish I had a hobby or two
