Yesterday’s lyrics were “Jilted John”, by Jilted John. When this got to number four in the charts in the summer of 1978 I was sharing a house with “Jilted John” who is actually called Graham Fellows. He later became a near neighbour before a re-incarnation as John Shuttleworth: I imagine some will know him in that guise from his radio 4 show of that name, amongst other projects, the latest of which is to open a recording studio in the Orkneys so that he can be a neighbour of OH!
What: something gentle this evening
Why: it is turning out to be a very gentle week. Peak flow now substantially down (350) so it looks like GP tomorrow.
Yes, Chick, I wondered what a "Public Realm Inspector" is, also! And on re-reading the email have now discovered that the reply, whilst addressed to me, later refers to a complaint about dustbins from someone of a completely different name and address! So a further complaint has been made as I am sure that I shouldn't be receiving the personal details of someone else, if, indeed, full name, address and email is considered to be a personal detail these days!
Dustin: yes, there is more than an element of stupidity in running every day for 50 years. Probably harmless to the rest of us though! We just shake our heads and smile! When I did a streak of around 11 years I did have the common sense not to run with broken bones in my foot. Broken ribs was a different matter!
1812k done...the name of course of Tchaikovskiy's overture. But did you know that it was written in around 1882 to celebrate the Russian defence of their homeland against the advances of Napoleon in 1812?
So only 142k to reach my lifetime, and 203k to reach our goal!
What: an "easy" 20 minutes...only it wasn't really as I feel a bit bruised all over! Light rain, following a morning's work.
Why: metal spike sticking out of the ground. Talking of which, a brief reply from Stockport Council: "details have been referred across to the Public Realm Inspector who will investigate within the next 5 working days".
Good that you could get out, WP, but tale it easy: I always prefer to ease myself back in with 20 to 30 minutes of easy running.
OL: seen Gordon lately? And funnily enough wonder if my daughter has seen Jess C recently: they used to be quite friendly when they were both on the same county hockey team.
