Red, yes they do and we even have a few round my way. Not so many as there used to be, but some still go along the road that passes the top of mine. There are trees either side of the road, and in some places, the tops of the buses brush along the branches that overhang the road. These double deckers don't, however, have conductors. Us OAP's are unable now to use our bus passes until after 9.30. I hope you are fully prepared for your marathon tomorrow, and do you want me to send the wings?
I felt much better last night at the club session and feel that the rest days are paying off. We did pyramids comprising 1,2,3,4,4,3,2,1 circuits on a fairly flat route. The only hazard was the camber on one of the roads. Total mileage, including run out and back was just over 7 miles.
There is a French Market all day today in the village, so I may go and have a nose round.
Results of my blood test should be out today, so If I don't hear from the Surgery, it should mean that all is well. I will phone anyway, as it has been known that information hasn't been passed on.
Exhausted, well done on your fund raising for The Big Sing. On the subject of conductors, I was talking to an aunty on the phone at the weekend and she happened to mention that the wife of one of my cousins, who has cancer was a conductress. I asked what orchestra and she burst out laughing saying no, a bus conductress
Thank you all for your good wishes with my blood test and I'm also keeping my fingers crossed.
This evening is a pyramid session with the club. I'll be taking it easy still.
Thanks WtnMel, I'm feeling a lot better, but still taking things easy. I think a Windows 8.1 mobile phone would be beyond me. I know the 8.1 is an improvement over the 8, but it seems most computer users, me included, prefer Windows 7. I usually retire my trainers at 500 miles.
I did the club session last night, in steady rain, which was hilly circuits, but took it easy. The health check with the Doctor yesterday afternoon went well, and he was impressed with my blood pressure reading 136/80. Urine test was clear. I had a blood test this morning at the local hospital, and the results should be available on Friday. It was a "fasting test" so I was unable to have any breakfast, and by the time I got home was "starving," and quickly prepared breakfast and a hot cup of tea.
