All over …


Well … almost “All Over”. I’ve just got to get through the copious amounts of “Happy New Year” messages and we’re done until next September/October when the whole farce starts again. I think I’ve said enough about me and Christmas over the years, so I’m drawing a line under it (see below) except to say … Continue reading All over …

Didn’t last …


So much for increasing the regularity of my posts. I think it must have been the ‘double’ post on the 8th that upset things. Joking aside, not much has really happened over that past week. Did a couple of short walks but nothing spectacular. ========= I had my Warfarin review on Wednesday. Now I think … Continue reading Didn’t last …

Instead of a  20 miles detour, it’s now more or less back to the usual 8 mile trip. The old road bridge was severely damaged in the floods … Continue reading Been another long day …

An old friend returns …

Now I thought I had been clever, and had made a list of the stuff I use all the time. Which is fine in as far is it goes. Then … Continue reading An old friend returns …

Awful afternoon


I was about a hundred metres down the road, when I spotted the Police car behind me. A quick look at the speedo’ showed me I was under the limit. Just! So I drove the whole road at 58 miles per hour, with the police car 20 foot behind me. Now, will he turn into … Continue reading Awful afternoon
