    Really shoot sleep after taking a tumble running last night - ribs are at best bruised 🤬

    Hound walk should normally take an hour and was closer to to 1.5hrs 🙄

    Work stuff is rather busy and now later isn’t the planned run, maybe pub with the house guests

    It’s like I’m 50 next month 😂

    Bloody leaves over sandstone rocks - rather hard to spot. My rather expensive head torch is going to get replaced by a better one

    Getting scraped/bashed up in your 20's, 30's, 40's = street cred.
    Above 50 = an on going concern.

    Lovely morning if a little cool but that's fine 'cos Mrs P is trying to cook me at the moment.
    Women's thermostats, what's wrong with them?

    Will pedal later after picking toots off to the whatever next activity. They should be happy - it's an art session.

    ...

    They go wonky as they get older. Register too hot or too cold, rarely accurate.
    Only solution is suffer or trade in for a later model one.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.

    Busy morning, gave our Ukrainian a lift to the hotel where she's starting work - first day on the job. She can walk home later, not too far. Then spent the rest of the time on calls. Must be lunch time soon...

    Afternoon folks,
    Another day in the orifice that's improved by the presence of the beautiful assistant. Pleasant enough wobble in this morning, fresh but not cold. Had to laugh as there were about 8 photographers around the pond close to where I enter Bushy Park looking for deer to photograph in the moody morning light. A few hundred yards further along the path, the other side of a good size copse of trees were loads of deer, looked like they were hiding from the paparazzi. One of the last evenings for riding home in daylight, will have to dig out the helmet light for next week.
    There's an easy way to avoid falling when running TLW, I think you can guess what it is. Hope it is just bruising, ribs are 'kin painful.
    Anyway, onwards and upwards...

    I think they call it "having a fall" don't they?

    Yep. I had that phone call from Mum on Sunday. It was raining, she'd walked round the shops to get stuff and was taking a shortcut on the way home. The Zimmer frame got caught up on something, and she fell over, banged her head on the frame on the way down. Nobody about to help either, managed to get herself up and home 400 meters away. Doesn't carry a mobile any more because her eyesight is bad enough she can't read the screen anyway.

    She's ok thankfully, just sore.

    Not the phone call I wanted on a Sunday afternoon for sure.

    Managed to get a glimpse of the partial eclipse earlier, thin cloud doing a bit of screening but still visible via camera tech.

    Stuff fettling continues: woodstore phase #1 now in place, time to get more logs ordered. Or scrounge timber off next door farmer Alec.

    Still tired post double vacc on Friday, ran out of energy yesterday afternoon, had to stop. Now have a streaming nose, started overnight. But damn sight better than catching the bugs.

    Doesn't he have one of those emergency buzzers that summons help?

    Falls for the elderly can have tragic consequences.
    I have a Jackanory about one such incident that I might write later once I have showered and stretched and eaten a shovel full of food post ride.

    On todays walk they stayed with me the whole way, think my constant yelping out in pain had them worried

    This retro dish often called 'tattie'ash', 'tayter'ash' or 'potato ash' is a one pot classic made with just minced beef, onions, carrots, ...

    Same difference but not my choice, the kids want it.

    PS - Early menopause can start at any age. Beware the warning signs and pray it's just another one of those hormonal things.

    In other dull news, seem to be more idiots than usual out tonight, wandering all over the roads and paths. All on foot or cycling, drivers were quite well behaved thankfully. Definitely a day for pootling rather than trying to get anywhere quickly.
    Saw another big herd of deer, had to ride through the middle of them, slowed to a crawl and kept a weary eye on the big pointy ones.

    Weary or wary?

    Me? Weary. Walked down to the shops earlier to get some bits, it's close just 6-7 mins walk. Xxxx me, on way back I felt like I'd been walking for hours / days. This is def my worst vacc reaction, though think this is first time I've had the double flu and C-word. Bleepin' nose is pouring out stuff.

    Early night coming. Think a hot soak, couple glasses and lights out. Tomorrow is a new world. Or summat.

    Wary, I'm obviously weary and/or a bit dim.
    Which jab did you have? I had a Pfizer one, but she said it was a new one that covered 2 strains. Minimal side effects for me thankfully, hope yours don't drag on too long

    Pfizer para mi aussi, sez he going pan Euro. I had Pfizer as my #3 last November but had no side effects. Maybe it's the combo with the flu one that's kicked off my immune system. A constantly runny nose is tedious, I am no longer a primary school age kid.
