|St Giles, Wadenhoe|
So, the second Sunday has arrived and thus far it is looking good. Need to get that sponsorship coming in though, so perhaps today’s tale will help.
I have been put seriously to the test today. What started out as a late afternoon jaunt to a nearby country park for a bit of low-light photography – sun setting over the reservoir – followed by a trip to the gym (for the first time in months, so it would have been a significant event) – turned into an expensive and embarrassing encounter between my car and a metal post. Quick retreat home, shaken, in need of a drink, but otherwise unharmed. How lovely it would have been to
have had a shot of vodka, and/or a warming glass of red wine?! But no,dedicated DryAthlete that I am, I turned to a cup of tea and some emergency chocolate. Well done me. To buy me a virtual drink and support Cancer Research UK, just text PSYC99 £2 to 70070 – no network charges either!
