Daniel X Works Alone

Having watched from the shadows as the brutal murder of his own parents unfolded before him, he has been forced to make his own way in a dark and unforgiving world with a heavy task handed to him.

Daniel’s father was an alien hunter, working his way through a fearsome ‘wanted’ list of aliens intent on seeking control and wreaking devastation. Following his parents’ sudden deaths, Daniel faces an uncertain future. He knows little about his family or where he comes from but a few things are clear: he had inherited the list from his father and with it, a unique ability to create anything that he needs including some very devoted friends to help him along the way.

His ultimate aim is to exact revenge against number one on his list: his parents’ murderer. But first he must target the others: each more sinister and gruesome than the last. Continue reading

Canal Boating

So, wow, boating, where to begin…

Day 1

Number of locks: 8

Dinner: Penkridge, Cross Keys

So, nice long car journey to start the holiday. Left home at about 9:30 and we ended up picking the boat up at around 2. We did stop for some lunch on the way so it wasn’t constant travelling.

For the first day it wasn’t too bad, the locks had reasonable spaces between them. But I totally forgot how much your hands suffer when doing locks as you basically give yourself blisters. Such fun!

And I also managed to forget how small the single beds are! They are tiny. I managed to fit in it but not very comfortably. They’re probably about half the size of a normal single, I’m sure!
