I usually need to provide the music in the car cos... Continue reading »

    Lest we forget…13 November cos it’s the nearest Sunday to 11th

    Same routine as ever, preparation the night before was a Chinese curry, and a bottle of wine. They do say red wine is high in iron, an important ingredient for stamina production, so I suppose a small tipple the night before can be justified.

    I had arranged to pick Mrs Young up on the... Continue reading »
