I attempted to use my non-existent 'O' Level woodwork skills early on Sunday morning.

Out came the hammer and I BANGED away.

Nothing too serious. A few nails have come loose in the wisteria support frame.

I bloody LOVED banging away.

Proper bloke-ish.

And then I went for a swim.

Sunday swim sessions of later have become something of a lost day as I put in the lengths, and then fall asleep in the spa.

It was no different today.

I woke up and looked at the pool clock, realising that I had half an hour before my work shift started.


A quick shower, and I was back at base just in time.

I caught the end of the Watford Vs Liverpool match, then worked on some school content whilst Swansea and West Ham went through the motions.

I waited for the estuary wilds rain to finish early evening, and then made the short walk down to the Quay for the Carols.

It was an impressive turn out.

I didn't sing a single note.

I did record the Carols though for the forum.

A little more school work, and then Sports Personality.

Which lost the magic many, many years ago.
