How unexpected

Blow me down I have had a lucky day.

The hospital appointment has a positive outcome. And reinforces my faith in the NHS, as the young doctor fields a phone call mid consultation. After spending a few minutes trying to reassure, she comes to a quick decision and says "wheel them over and I will take a look.". A little bit of reassurance goes a long way, I am impressed.

I get home from a route march just in time to collapse on the sofa and catch.

Whippet and I miss a Newton moment as an apple thumps to the ground missing our heads by a whisker.

And lastly just as I had given up any hope of receiving the promised replacement radio for my knackered digital job that I had wrangled out of her on the end of the phone. There is a knock at the door and there it is.

Now shall I buy a lottery ticket?

The fact that I couldn't get the better of the sodding shoulder pales into insignificance.

Another day over.

Look for the silver lining Nedd! Well done.


Brilliant day sit back and enjoy the feeling that this world is a good place.



Hello BOB here

Enjoy the high of a good day.

All the best


Thanks Nedd, for sharing the happiness, can see your cheeky grin from here! ;)


It was a gift of a day. Thanks for comments.

Re cheeky grin.

I caught sight of myself in the mirror today. What a squawking. I have aged at least ten years recently. I blame the constant clenched jaw, not the misspent youth. I look like me mother.


I sent my mum a birthday card : it's a cartoon of a lady in curlers sat in front of the mirror, and with horror she's looking at her reflection and exclaiming, "Mother?!" Every time I chide mine for some little mannerism or saying she has, she warns me, "It'll come to you eventually!"


I hate to say this. But she is spot on.

There is a warning to a man before marrying.

Look at the mother, because that's what you end up with.
