50 years ago today I was in the First Year Sixth of the Alun School and used the privilege of being in the Sixth to go into town during a study period to get a set of the first decimal coins in the UK.  It had been a long time coming.  Students of Trollope (and […]

Too much travel, too little hill walking and only one day between trips. But at least, I thought I can get out on the bike. I picked it up from Sean who had fitted a new chain at midday and then set out for my normal 50km round. The weather was not good and I […]

American Airlines upgraded me to business so I got some sleep, although it was the older configuration so 2-3-2 rather than the 1-2-1 herringbone […]

The saga of Christmas for the last couple of decades has involved getting into town by 0600 to collect the turkey from the Butcher before plunging into Waitrose when it opens at 0700 to fill a trolley with all the necessaries for multiple meals over the next few days.  This year I also had to […]

In some ways this post does not really exist as I crossed the date line in a westerly direction and thus the 3rd of August is missing from my life.   Ok around a week ago I lived the 28th of July twice, arriving in Houston around the same time (and date) I left Wellington. […]
