Welcome to Anything can happen 2017!

Well, that’s what I’m hoping for anyway. A Fresh Start, a New Beginning, the slate wiped clean.keep-calm-because-anything-can-happen-1

To start with- I went to the shop and bought some wellies. I think my subconscious might be trying to tell me something- that was an impulse buy. Maybe my little jaunt round Talacre taught me to be more prepared than I already usually am for whatever eventualities may occur. It looks like it’ll be an epic five-part video anyway, plus I haven’t updated the five year anniversary like I thought I would.

Another thing I am planning in advance is Dr. Rrr! Series 2. In amongst the tidying and sorting I have not watched much this Christmas. (Really? How about Deep Space 9 series 7, or Brave or Thunderbolt Fantasy, or Doctor Who- The Return of Doctor Mysterio/Hell Bent/Spearhead from space, or Yuri on Ice finale (yes, really!) or even last episode of series 6 of Game of Thrones, what a revelation at the end!)

Okay, I might have watched a few things, but nothing really Christmassy, unless you count Nativity 3 in school or Cinderella in New Brighton, but that was before Term ended. Rogue One doesn’t count as an Xmas film, but saw it twice, the second time enjoyed it a bit more, but definitely more darker than others, about same as ep 3 I expect, but the prequels don’t really count anyway, in my opinion.

So there we go, anything can happen now I’ve got some wellies. It’s like when Ford Prefect tells Arthur Dent in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy that the only thing he needs to survive is a towel, so I guess that’s next on my shopping list.

For now though, I’m eating my first pizza of 2017 and watching the New Sherlock- now there’s an epic combo if ever there was one.

Happy 2017- Get ready and keep your wellies handy, ‘cos anything can Happen!!

What is your Aspiration/to what do you Aspire?

I got asked a question on Youtube about why I make my hiking videos (Pale Heights one) So this is a question I’ve been pondering the last few weeks.

aspire1What is your Aspiration/to what do you Aspire?

And I have to admit that I haven’t quite figured it out yet. It’s a Creative Compulsion, I am compelled, need to, want to, desire to make something, to create, to be creative, even with virtually no resources- just a second-hand camera, basic editing knowledge and equipment and a few free mornings to go somewhere or write something.

And what an explosion of Creativity I’ve had this year! 28 Infinite Whoniverse stories, getting past the 200 video-mark, my Fifth Bloggerversary, had TWO proper bands let me use their songs (Mona Lisa Twins- These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ for Hiking theme and Traffic Experiment’s Vashta Nerada theme for IW/Dr. Rrr’s Guide to the Whoniverse- Episode 3 coming up next Sunday!) And I haven’t even mentioned I AM (Indie Authors Merseyside) yet, but with three short stories published elsewhere (and a Fourth in Courage 2015, when it eventually gets released! And no, I won’t be attempting NaNoWriMo this year!) I am taking small, very tiny steps forward. Yes I know I want to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but small steps help as well.Well, that’s all nice, but for me, my hope is that I’ve created something worthwhile, a little philosophical nugget, golden or Chicken, makes no difference.


Yes, there is the exhilaration and joy of going somewhere new, and filming it, documenting the experience and then inflicting it upon the rest of the universe. Then there’s the puppet videos, not quite in the same league as The Muppet Show, but I’m a one-Man Band and do what I can,

it also helps that I’ve a few, not many, but a few friends who have helped out.affirmation-320x230

So, there’s another Monday morning gone, in a rambling mini-essay. I guess I’ve half-answered the question, what do I hope to achieve? A few Likes on Tiglet’s Facebook page? A couple of new followers on Twitter? Maybe get a few more views and a comment on Youtube??

Oh yes, and that I’ve had a bit of fun along the way!

Go on, tell me, what is your Aspiration/to what do you Aspire?

Getting by with a little help from my friends- 5 years of Playworking, blogging and Facebooking along!

imagesMy Fifth Bloggerversary Trailer is up, but I haven’t finished writing a running commentary on all the little bits and pieces, but Today I have been working in my job in Chester for 5 years! Join that with 5 years of Facebooking and Blogging and that’s a triple whammy if ever there was one!

Now that is a worthehile achievement, well, it’s either that or a lengthy prison sentence, but I’ll go with the achievement!

I’ve had a busy summer, but I think getting the Anniversary Trailer uploaded onto Youtube is a great insight into the Journey so far, even though certain things get repeated. The Mona Lisa Twins get three mentions, as does Infinite Whoniverses and Ignite. While the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic, Mersey Comic Con and the Eagles/Falcons/Buzzards all get two!

Tiglet gets a massive seven mentions. But I realised this afternoon on the way to school that the thing I haven’t raved about is the fact that I’m friends with a Gold Medallist from the Olympics!!!

And you’re going to have to wait until I’ve finished the commentary blogpost to find out how!

(Hint- the Tarzan/Quarry bit features him!)

And on that note, I’ll call it a night and have a cookie!

So, another Mid-Day job bites the dust. My days of Santa Spotting, First-Aiding and ball-retrieval from the field seem to be over.


It’s with very mixed feelings that I knew it was time to move on, DSCF3181but I bit the bullet, even though part of me would have liked to have stayed, but commuting two hours and rushing around like the Flash racing Superman first thing in the morning isn’t any fun, at least not these days.


There’s a lot I have done- went to a Wedding and been inspired to write a storyline on Infinite Whoniverses based on Rachel and Dave’s trip to Cardiff, Presented Tiglet to some of the kids, hiked three quarters of the Shropshire Union Canal and explored a whole lot more of Chester. Made it through two Christmases (when it was only supposed to be one!) Been inspired to create crafts, even though I’m rubbish at it! (Thank you Sue and the Hetty gang!) I’ve even had some great Show-And-Tell times, and told a few stories, though my version of Mr. Chatterbox has to be seen to be believed!


So there we go, got an interview on Wednesday, Holiday Club and hopefully Wales to look forward to, as well as the TimeRiders and Robots of Death to revise for IW, but for now am going to enjoy a Special Curry and maybe watch Sleepless in Seattle, though I might catch up on Game of Thrones or Caprica, not sure yet.


So, My Last Day in Hoole- very nice, though I’ve yet to open the chocolates the kids presented me with, I’m still getting used to the idea of not having to rush around in the morning and may even get a few reviews written, now that would be something wouldn’t it?!

 Happy Half Term Everybody!!

INFINITE WHONIVERSES- The Final Adventure of 2014!

The 171st Post on Tiglets blog! The Last story of 2014!!

Mr. Tiglet's Blog

IW- last of the timeladies Cover 2

This Episode of Infinite Whoniverses- Last of the TimeLadies has taken ages to complete.

It began about five months ago after Rachel and Dave’s wedding and seeing their pictures from their visit to the Doctor Who exhibition at Cardiff. There’s also a picture of Rachel with Davros, but I preferred this one. I didn’t make it to their Reception as I had to go to Pete Swans  on the Wirral. I am seriously looking forward to the day when I can clone myself and be in two places at once. I mean, if the Sontarans, Kaminoans and Michael Keaton can do it, why can’t I??

It was supposed to be a simple tale to introduce and kick off the Female Doctor storyline, but over four months I kept adding ideas, the biggest one being locating it to a Sanctuary system roughly at the same time as The Guardians of Zyonia…

This Episode of Infinite Whoniverses- The Cult of Davros follows a story thread begun in episode 4 of Triumph of the Daleks as an Agent tracks them down to 21st Century Chester.


Why is a question that I’ll leave you to ponder until Season 2 of IW in the New Year, there are still a couple of storylines I’d like to start, but think once Uncaged/Last of the Timeladies and Unity are finished, that’ll be it for now.IWCOD Kai Hoole Water TOWER2

Tiglet wants to do a few stories for next year and the Travelblogs and Reviews/blogs need updating, so a rest will be good!

In the meantime, if you’re in Chester over Christmas/New Year, keep an eye out because there may be something afoot in Deva!
