Tomorrow I go on work experience for a week, in Cardigan. I'm camping about 8 miles away, so get to cycle in every morning, and the company I'm working with said I can shower there :). They seem like a really friendly bunch, too :D.

Good luck.  What will you be doing?

Thanks - I'm going to a certain Welsh ethical clothing company :).

Like the art btw!

How'd you do it?

The design was taken from some material.  I copied it and reversed the colours on two of the canvases.

I was called in at the last minute as the guest speaker at a sports presentation awards thingy on Friday night. The ex-ghurka-Atlantic-rower-hero-guy couldn't make it.  :-X

Anyway, in front of 300 assorted parents, worthies, the mayor, national athletes and the local press... I did a surprisingly good job with a fifteen minute presentation on the theme of "ordinary, stubborn, people can achieve remarkable things."

Whew...

I've just told the story I submitted for the new company "journal" was really good and they want more. In fact the colleague who told me this, who I wasn't previously aware was even on the journal committee, said next time she wants her name in my story! (cos I had borrowed colleagues names to give it a more Indian flavour)>

And the bank has finally reissued me with a PIN to my card (after I foolishly changed it and forgot to what  :-[) so I can now buy things again!

I've had one of mine home for the past three weeks. Fortunately the other doesn't finish until the end of next week.

We have just picked up the keys to our new rented home, a bungalow in a quiet village called Freckleton. So goodbye to druggies, drunks, chavs and endless police sirens, hello birdsong and nice neighbours.

It sounds like there's a cracker of a storm brewing up out there. I love a good storm, as long as no-one gets hurt

I have had a nice few days and I found out that I can still ice skate.  I think my balance might be good enough to start cycle again.
