This is my new hobby.

Now you do have to be 'slightly' geeky to enjoy this, in fact given a gps (it's NOT as complicated as it sounds) anyone can do it.

It isn't just the hide and seek part if it that appeals to me, it's also the fact that I get to discover new parts of my city and others and that it gets me walking!

It is a great way to get out and oxygenate.

We've placed our first cache, and here i'm going to admit, that I'm quite excited by it.

Basically, we have hidden a box with a log book and other stuff in it in a public road right slap bang in the middle of  Brussels! and people walk past there every day and have no idea.

To tell people where it is we have logged the gps coordinates, they search for the box, open and leave their mark before placing it right back where they found it.

You can send an item from cache to cache and see where it ends up. It's quite cool.

And no time constraints, find as many or as little as you like, it's up to you.

Freezing point

There has been an awful lot of shit on the work side of things for a while now.

It finally came to a head today, and I am completely confused as to how I feel about it.

The curator came to visit today. We were almost - escorted out of the building and while we knew it was coming, and know it's for the best, it turned out to be a real bummer end to a brilliant week.

Those of you who know me, know that i've worked my arse of during my 2 years and a bit in this company. I have loved and hated every minute of it. Lately though, there have not been many brilliant weeks.

And I think I might be ready for a change now...

But there are a number of things I am going to miss;
My lunches out with U2-girl - she makes me laugh, my manytimes "difficult" fashion nerd, the night's out in EHV with the quizmasters (I will come again) and the comforting familiarity of it all.

funny how none of those things are work related, huh?
