Runescape and football

“Dad Dad!” “What Angus?” “Someone’s hacked my Runescape account?” “Shit!”. It used to be that real Dad’s used to teach their kids to play football or watch them at least on Sundays. ‘New Dad’ spends his time understanding, or at least I do – what Runescape is all about. Angus lives in an online world when ever he is allowed. This means if allowed; he would literately live in there except for the odd moments of needing a pee, eating and the annoying fact that he will fall asleep at the screen at some stage. About 4 years ago or so when Angus was about 9, we stayed in a hostel in Brasov Romania I think, and we were going off to bed. “Dad, I’m just going to check my email, I’ll be up in a mo”. Angus said as I went up to our room and crashed out. I thought nothing off it until I came down for breakfast and dragged Angus out of bed to eat some food. He was fine until he saw this Dutch guy and looked a bit nervous. “Hey man.” the Dutch guy said to Angus like he knew him holding his fist up in the air in respect. Angus nodded in recognition once, his expression staying the same. “How do you know him Angus?” I said ” As I didn’t remember seeing him when we arrived.” I got the trainee Kevin look from Angus and went back to my toast and triangle of cheese spread. “Hey, your kids full on man” The Dutch guy said to me. Angus not looking amused. “...

Dancing with the Gypsy's

In need of slight renovation

On Sunday I found the time to do a little bit of exploring with a guy I know in Baia Mare. “We go where no tourist go.” he said “Must people in Baia Mare never hear of this place, and they never been here” When we arrived after bumpy up a dusty track for half an hour you could tell he was right. The area is a living museum of the old Maramures way of life. It was a great day and I got some pics you can see on the link...
