Had a good walk at Felbrigg this morning. The woods were stunning reminded me of the Beech Woods of The Chilterns. 

Still I will be down there soon for a driven day.

Had to break off from work this forenoon and get a new boot on the mighty Tiger.  A Michelin Road Pilot 5.  Now just need to get it scrubbed in

Our day

Setting up a new 3 account (mobile broadband) for our friend in a nursing home who has just bought a Sonos Beam, a smart TV and an Amazon Firestick,  all with Alexa built in as he now cannot move anything below his neck. That's been a real challenge....but we've done it because we love him and if we hadn't done it, no-one else would

Yesterday evening me and MrsG went to the Vue cinema in Donny to watch Bohemian Rhapsody.  We both thoroughly enjoyed it.  If you have not been to the big screen this year or have been but no intention of going again - Take my advice and GO SEE THIS FILM.  It really is good, in fact much better than good.  Watching it on blue ray / home screen will be good but on the big screen with proper surround system it really is superb

I watched Bohemian Rhapsody last week, the reviews are not great but Queen were not liked by the press.  There are a few large holes in the script but I also thought it was fantastic, by the end you thought it really was Queen - great entertainment.

A little late,  but Sunday of course was sailing day,   after we had lowered the flags for the 2minutes silence. 

This week it was our turn on duty I was on the rescue boats, while my sailing compatriot ran the racing.

 Due to the strong winds,  several small dinghies capsized.  Most sorted themselves out,  we had to rescue one laser with a broken mast, another that washed up on a Lee shore. The other rescue boat collected a few boats too. 

In other news, Broadland model railway club  is getting ready for the October 2019 show with 13 layouts, 6 traders and one  trader booked so far.

It’s time for my yearly trip to London, set off from home at 6:30.  My pool car must be a reject as its like sitting in a bucket of vomit!  I’m currently sat on an tube train to Westminster that rides like a boat doing 30 knots!!  Only difference is I have someone’s bum in my face!!

I’d normally use a train for the whole journey but I’m popping into see mum on the way home.  Plus driving / tube is half the cost!

I’ll try and get a few boaty photos later.

My day.  Well evening really.   Just came back from watching Bohemian Rhapsody at the Trowbridge Odeon.  FANTASTIC.  No-one in the theatre was under 40 and we were all rocking.  Even Martin thoroughly enjoyed it and he is not easily pleased.

I haven't heard anyone who has watched it that hasn't come back 'buzzed'!  S

Should have taken the car. Forklifts rarely get over 45 even when the weather is good!
