Monday 21st January
I had an excellent weekend again.
Friday evening I was MC at the Freemasons Boxing Tournament in the Cunbria Grand Hotel. A job I thoroughly enjoy and Friday was my 25th year of doing so!! They make a stack of money which all goews to Charity and over the years have raised well over £200,000 !!!! How about that! Got home at 1 in the morning, shattered! Worked on Saturday though I did not start till 10.30 or so as Helen held the reins. Had a lovely evening in on Saturday and on Sunday it was so lovely , bright and suunny, that I decided to have a run out on my tricycle. I fixed the intermittent fault it had on the throttle and I enjoyed my ride down teh Canal towpath. There were lots of people out and teh views at Canal Foot were simply superb. I met up with friends for Cocktails @ 5 in teh Farmers to conclude a lovely weekend. What a fortunate man I am.

FRIDAY 18th January.
A VERY chilly morning. A touch of frost and many of the cars are covered. But there are clear skies so the Lakes will all look fabulous. Hada good day on Thursday of course as it was Market Day so I had a number of visitors into the offices.My friend has been discharged from hospital and she is safely back in her home witha "care package" of carers visiting three times during the day. I do hope she is ok. The Farmers Quiz was good but teh Rollover was NOT won so it will be around £75 next week. I got home and caught the last half hour, or so, of Question Time. No comment!

Market Day today. Bright and rather chilly so there will be a good crowd in town for sure. Wednesday was lovely with some clear blue skies and bright sunshine. I had the afternoon off and had a ride up the Lakes. Just as far as Gummers Howe as the road to Windermere is CLOSED for 11 weeks just like last year. So there are diversions up and over Gummers Howe via Strawberry Bank etc. I see that the work on Buxton Place Car Park is nearing completion and it looks ever so posh with raised Flower Beds and such. Very smart. Met up with Derek for a couple of swift halves, in the Farmers at 9. Very few folk out but it is January so that is not so unusual. There has been a massive RTA on the M6 necessitation for the Air Ambulance to attend. Bad news.
