Morning folks from a drizzly Norfolk. One of my kids (35 year old but they are still kids right ?) is currently on a skiing "holiday" in Poland, next to the Ukraine border!!! A couple of years ago, she had a nasty fall whilst skiing and broke her upper arm, quite badly, resulting in a big surgery to reinforce and pin the bone with a steel support, leaving her with a 9" scar on her arm. She gave me the flight number, to track her outward journey and the plane was a 737MAX !!! Add to that, the current situation (and Covid etc.) just a few miles east of where they are and .................... "Don't worry dad. It'll be fine!" Their flight home is tonight and I will be very glad when I can give her a hug!

Wet here in Suffolk so a day in the garage finishing off putting some old leaded glass into some frames I've made. Nothing fancy I hasten to add.

I've also going to download the video of the hedgehogs we have in the garden. We spotted four the other night. Not unusual.

Morning all, Bright sunshine & blue skies here, There is even a bit of warmth to the sunshine too. Need to go & get some 75ltr bags of compost before it's too late as that's going to cease being sold shortly, Between 2022-2024 Peat compost will be phased out & only peat free compost can be sold, More & more retailers are already discontinuing it
All to do with this here Net Zero climate change we're signed up to, 250000 Hectares of UK peat land has to be restored.

It should not be delayed because work is a priority. Itís only my opinion, but what do I know.

Feeling depressed? or having suicidal thoughts? if I may suggest, get professional help through your GP and mental health services.

Take care
I need to do something to speak to my customers and explain the situation, I speak to the doctor in April but don't know when they fit me for operation before they ordered it to USA, If I don't speak to the customers personal, I could end up with alot new customers with someone new and being less without my own work. I have to gate a getting my allowed to drive for me to meet all the customers so they know what my ýsers are for me.
Without this makes me feel luck as if the customers could just leave me for someone else.
I can't ask the wife to do this for me as she has enough to do with help me anyway, I need to do it myself as the start back to won can be this time next year which will kill my work properly.

Yet another dreary old day today, unusual for us to get two days in a row like this..
After passing the Caldecotte arms the other day I had more thoughts of past meets brought back to me last night when Susan Calman visited Sammy Miller's motorcycle museum in the New Forest as part of her TV travel series, I remember I organised a couple of regional meets there and we had something like 65 cars attend at one of them.

Evening all, been up to Lincolnshire today to scatter Debs ashes, a difficult day to say the least, she was scattered in the same place that her Dad was laid to rest (amongst the flowers at the crematorium) As that was her final wish.

A nice turn out from the family and a couple of friends from here made things a little easier, it would have been 9 years today since we first met, it is also 34 years today since my Dad passed away.

The no5 tends to haunt me...

Morning Richard, thank you for explaining everything. So your customers will understand about your plans, you are going to ask them to keep you on their books until you return to work next year? A good plan to work towards to.

Once the custom made part in the USA gets back to your hospital, you will the op in April.

We will be all rooting for your operation and recovery, please keep us updated.

In regards to your sense of taste, the neurosurgeon is the one who can give you a definitive answer, as every head injury is different. Let’s hope that time is the healer and it returns and because of that, he might not commit to an answer, but do ask.

Interestingly, when I saw the vascular surgeon in the UK in December about the aneurysm graft, he said the NHS ones were “one size fits all” whereas the custom made ones - measured to fit, had to made in the USA. It must be encouraging for you to know you will get the best.
