Hi I filled in the little form but I think my pin ended up in the middle of the ocean. I am so hopeless with anything vaguely technical. However I am definitely searching somewhere. If it hasn't worked I will try again later. I will also try for the Widget but don't hold your breath.

Stray said...

sheepish I have rehomed you to the west of france (where wikipedia told me you live. well, actually, they don't have a page on sheepish, they have a page on the place where you live, but maybe they should have a sheepish page too).

The Moon Topples said...

Probably should give up finding Adam entirely, as my pins got stuck on the wrong hemisphere the first two times.

I didn't see that there were directions below the map.

Stray said...

it's all part of the fun Mr Moon!

anyway - it makes me feel important when I get emails asking me to Fix Stuff. :)

Marie said...

OK, I've done it. I've joined the search and the widget is on my blog.

Caroline said...

Stray - Jude has moved Cheshire to the Lakes and yellow duck can't put the widget on wordpress!

:)

Bet you're glAd you started this!

Hugs

Helen said...

I think I have put my pin on top of somebody else! I was trying to get it into the middle of england and I'm stuck on top of someone up north I think(!) Sorry to be hopeless...Stray could you please relocate me? Thanks Helen

Caroline said...

Is it wrong that this is making me giggle sooooo much?????

xxxxx

Love you Stray :)

Stray said...

Caroline - Jude has been relocated back to the area more conventionally known as cheshire :) As for Mr Duck, I have looked up a lot of stuff and it does seem that it might be possible but rather difficult. Wordpress-schmess. If Mr Duck might like to email me then I can look at it in more detail :)

Helen - Yes, I noticed your "Northamptonshire" and you have been duly transported :)

Marie - You were floating in the sea so I have put you back in London!

Oh deary me ... mind you, this is VERY good for my terrible geography. The fact that I have to look these places up is proof that I need this homework :)

Sx

Stray said...

Oh! Caroline :) I love you too. I am giggling as well. Though that might be too many late nights ;)

Keris said...

I've done it. I feel a bit left out because I don't think I had any problems (except when I tried to put the widget on the left of my blog it arsed everything up, but it looks just as nice on the right, so it all turned out okay). K x

Shell said...

of course everybody fears my geographical powers - i mean, did anyone realise that Staffordshire is now subterranean, topped by Cheshire and the north sea oil rig? *awed at my fingertips .... lol

Dear Caroline, i've joined the search for Adam and have put the most magical of widgets on my blog ...

Shell said...

omg - my beloved pin vanished so i sneaked another one, set off for the hills, then it ran off and plonked itself "somewhere" even though it had a word error and now i may be in there twice but lost both times and i'm sooooo dizzy!

Stray said...

Shell - I don't think you have vanished at all! You just need to zoooooom right in to see you, midst other pins. The North West is popular!

I have deleted your second wayward one :)

Mr Good Thomas - I have put you next to lovely Maht.
Sx

Aaron said...

I have added the widget to my plugroll.

Nice idea...

Marie said...

Last time I looked I was heading off to Denmark but now I've disappeared completely.

Matthew said...

I massively emplaced my pin in the wrong place, Cas. Sorry.

Certainly you should assume that I've got a crack squad of Adam-hunters in Cardiff looking for him as I swan about in the North Sea.

Stray said...

Marie - you are safe and sound in london. You might need to zoooooom in a bit to move around between those pins.

Matt - I went out in my boat and fetched you. Fear not, you are safe and dry in Cardiff now!

Sx

Matthew said...

Hooray! Thank you x

Matthew said...

On perusal it seems I am the only person in Wales searching for Adam.

Stray said...

It's a big responsibility Matt. But I have faith in you.

Shell said...

ohhh thank you, stray - i was concerned about self-multuiplication ... like mogwai, shells shouldn't really do that kind of thing ... *grin

Menchie said...

i just filled mine in. :D

Böbø said...

Stray lovely work! Didn't stop me from screwing it up and locating Yorkshire in the lake district. There goes my tissue thin IT credentials. Cas I'm in the hunting pack too!

Caroline said...

Thrilled you're all here x
I must say that I spent most yesterday giggling about pins.

Thank you for playing and for commenting and for .... sigh ... I love you all sooooooooo.

Stray said...

Bobo sir, I have relocated you right next to Ms Melancholy - I trust that will be acceptable ;) ?

The Cornish Cowgirl said...

Hello!
I have put the widget on my blog Youarenotmyfather but I am not sure where I ended up on the map.
I'm a friend of Badger's and a friend of Stray's but I don't think I know anyone else yet.

Karen the Cornish cowgirl

Helen said...

I've finally put the widget on my blog...

It looks great.

x

Böbø said...

Thanks Stray. Being next to Ms Mmmmm is right on so many levels, geographical probably being least amongst them!

Caroline said...

Cornish Cowgirl - any friend of Stray and Badger is most most most totally a friend of mine. Welcome and thank you for putting the widget on your blog x

Helen - huge hugs honey.

Bobo - I am concerned that I am alllll alone in the middle of the sea sea sea.

xxxx

Angela-la-la said...

I'm all widgeted up but I think I've moved Essex to somewhere Scottish.

Böbø said...

Caroline sweetheart, that's not the ocean, it's a vast chocolate ice cream tub of love, respect, admiration, and warm fuzzies, sprinkled with hundreds and thousands.

Caroline said...

Agela-la-la - :) I shouldn't giggle ... but it is funny :)

Bobo - no it's the sea sea sea. Think your being loved up is going to your heeeeeed. Crazy.

Carol and Chris said...

Sorry - In my over excitement to get a pin on the board I didn't read the instructions properly.

Just wanted to say that I do know Bangkok is not anywhere in the UK

Carol

Cally said...

Ooops - somehow my Brighton pin ended up in Lancashire?! I can't move it!

Caroline said...

Don't worry!
Stray is poorly,but she'll fix everything when she's better.
(Get well soon honey)

Cally - you'll end up in Brighton again soon ... enjoy the scenery in the meantime.

Carol - :) Stray will fix it. She's rather good like that.

Thank you so so so much

I've picked my pin and got the widget on my blog!

I have to say... this is a fantastic idea! Well done!

Sue aka MsCreativity :-) said...

I've finally joined the search - better late than never, right? I have no idea which part of the UK I've stuck my pin in though...

Sue :-)

Stray said...

Goodness me Ms Creativity! You were floating out off the coast of cornwall! We manned the lifeboats and have returned you to your correct position.

All part of the service! :)

Random Reflections said...

I've added the widgety thing to my blog due to me now seemingly dreaming about the book...

Amanda said...

I have mananged to place my pin and the widget without any trouble - something is VERY wrong!To my surprise, I thought at first there were others looking in my area (Brisbane Australia) but they are just west and north so thanksfully we won't all be looking in the same place.

Caroline said...

Thank you random x

Amanda - I have added you to the blogroll. Thanks x

Goncalo Veiga said...

Hello! I just inserted my pin in Santarem, in Portugal. Is Adam near Guarda in Portuga? :p I saw something there ;)

Cathy said...

Not sure if I actually managed to move a pin anywhere, but the widget is on my blog!

Caroline said...

Thank you Cathy - don't worry about the pin, as lovely Stray will sort it.

goncalo v - thank you so much for joining the search.

Sabine said...

Hmmm... I'm blonde - so I got it wrong the first time round (my home doesn't actually exist on the map *eek* !!), but the main problem was I couldn't see my pin LOL!! And now I'm searching in 2 places simultaneously (somewhere near England and Gozo where I really am!). Feel free to let one of my personae drown!

But what I really wanted to say: I really love this idea. Nice touch! Good luck with Adam! :-)

Caroline said...

Sabine - I know! I know! I am soooo sad that Malta/Gozo are not on the map .... *sob*

Thanks for popping.

beta mum said...

Hurrah!!
I have put a pin in and I have the widget on my blog.
Had to give up and get my little brother to do it in the end.

Cheers

Joseph said...

Look at me, I'm officially searching

cusp said...

I think I've put two pins in by mistake ---- sorry!: bit foggy today, but my main stake is in Suffolk where I am and meant to be. I think Adam is lurking at Felixstowe Docks or at Aldeburgh in a boat

Caroline said...

beta mum - many thanks I have added you to the blogroll.

Joseph - well done :)

cusp - thanks so much. I've added you to the blogroll.

Good fortune with your book launch.

Badger said...

I have put my pin in the sea just off northern france....it should be on the south east coast....

Saoirse Redgrave said...

Acck! I hit save too soon and so my lovely pink pin is in eastern Europe (I think that's where I briefly glimpsed it)-- not New York.

Yes, I know where my state is _and isn't_(regardless of what the world's been told about Americans and our pitiful sense of geography). Darned embarrassing. ;-)

I need to read directions more completely, I guess :p .

Take care!

Splendid. And the first blog I looked at taught me that today the moon is waxing gibbons. Or possibly gibbous. Good work, anyway.
