I am on leave, so sitting in the Castle Gardens in Bridgnorth, wearing a big floppy hat (much to the delight of my 5-year-old step-granddaughter's delight) eating icecream.

At home recovering from recent (17 Jul) knee replacement operation. Having the sutures removed tomorrow.

Sounds lovely!

Do go on the cliff railway if you get a chance. Its most excellent.

A couple of years back it was for sale..... I tried to talk CBH into letting me buy it but she put her foot down with a firm hand and said no.... Something about the fact that I don't play with the model railway I already have.  :facepalm:

I have been on the railway a few times, but normally we walk.  I should take the little one on there one day, she would love it. 

I remember it being for sale :)

Lying in my tent near Aberdaron, trying to listen to the Proms over the wind & rain outside.  A flask of single malt at hand.

Hiding in my office to avoid the deadly boredom of company, not to mention the lingering stink of cigarettes.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Lying in my tent near Blaenau Ffestiniog listening to the rain batter the shaking tent.  They insisted I tie a big label to the tent & it’s flapping around in the wind. Crap radio reception so no Proms.

Ah, Bisto?

Meanwhile, I am trying to screw up the energy to stand and, having stood, to get changed and go for a ride.  Trouble is that my chair is ever so comfortable after the big pre-ride breakfast I ate.

Yep, still here. Full fortnight away which has been a rare thing is this household of late.
Honey farm is scheduled for tomorrow, probably (seeing it's only about five minutes away).

Sitting with a heat pack on my left sacroiliac, drinking tea and cursing fate, as personified by the duff 20-kg microwave I personhandled into the boot of the car last Thursday week, at MrsT's insistence.

I can't get it out again until my back's healed, and I'm damned if I'm going to risk it before Christmas.  :demon:

Wondering whether the chap I overheard on the way home from the shops declaring that he was going to put a grand on Man City actually went through with it, or his wife/girlfriend - who sounded less than enthused - talked some sense into him.

icing a very sore ankle, due to a tractor pulling out on me and then squeezing me into a kerb.  Rear wheel of the trailer clipped my leg causing friction burns and a twisted ankle.  Road rash on right hand as well.

Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

it was a choice of try and go behind, potentially into traffic, or hug the kerb and slam on the anchors.

To their credit, a lot of folks stopped to check I was OK and ask if they could help.  Buggeration was it was an online TT league ride and I was on for a massive PB to that point.

I think the driver saw me sprawled in the verge, but yes, she did stop.
