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.
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.
