Having got into a muddle I’ve decided to split this update into 2 posts. This one will be a sort of diary and the other will focus on health / nutrition / training. They will of course overlap but it will suit me better!
So what have I been up to?
Oh, only the normal sort of things!
I’ve been ‘on duty’ at the prison for 3 of the last 6 weeks. As I’ve said before, I’m a member of the IMB. A ‘different’ sort of volunteering. Have a look at what we do http://www.imb.org.uk/
you may want to volunteer! I haven’t got any photos of that to show you though!!!
I’ve been to Highgate Cemetery with a group of friends. Recommend it, the guided tour was interesting as were the tombs and graves, modern as well as Victorian. I really liked the house that had been built there, but not everybody felt the same! (Here’s a small selection of the photos I took, they will enlarge if you click on them.)
I marshalled at the North Downs Run (where I got covered in tiny black flies!)
and at the Dirty Dozen race.
where I managed to get only a little bit muddy!
Two very different sorts of races but both of them gave me the opportunity to shout! I used to be a very good shouter but I don’t get much opportunity since I left Deptford Green so I need to keep in practice!
Talking about races, we entered a different sort of race this year. Dragon Boat racing!
Renei and I continue to visit National Trust properties. We went to Polesdon Lacey, Chartwell,
I’ve continued to act as a misper for the search dogs and I’m now thinking about joining Essex Search and Rescue. Right up my street as I love being out of doors and the unpredictability of what you may be asked to do. And night training
Mountain bike National trials
Ray – scan, hypos
Westminster Hall Magna Carta trial
Wheelchair service, british Gas
I was a “misper” on a three day man trailing seminar. Those dogs never cease to impress me!
And there’s always opportunities to do silly stuff if I’m left alone for too long!
Now I’m sat in a hospital bed pumped full of painkillers waiting to see if I can pass this kidney stone!
