Of flame and flu

15th April 2018

Being a life-time asthmatic and now a few years the wrong side of 60, I have, for this decade at least, taken advantage of the NHS' annual flu-jab, and queued up both in Darley Dale and earlier in Sheffield to get my dose of what best estimates predicted would be the prevalent strain that year.

Of weather and cleaner.

25th February 2018

I should have known better than to declare that a start was at last made on the Wickham, for despite Jagger's best intentions, family matters took precedence and he has been unable to get back to Darley Dale to capitalise on the start he made.

Of chickens and eggs.

18th February 2018

 Slightly fewer miles this week, so slightly less fatigued. Migraines temporarily averted. No need to go to Tunstead. Has it been a holiday? Naah..

Of snow and souvenirs

11th February 2018

 

OK, first off, those of you who are looking for lots of pickies this week are going to be disappointed – for whatever reason the camera has had a quiet week.

Of bogies, tunnel and dashcam

4th February 2018

A bit for everyone this week, I think. Whether its s.g., n.g., steam or diesel, we've something that might catch your attention, educate or amuse.

Of sore thumb and grazed forehead

21st January 2018

 

I like to start the blog with a few pithy phrases that give an air of detached insightfulness. Unfortunately I can't think of any.

Of pumps and bolts


3rd December 2017

December eh? Steph has stuck a calender under my nose and pointed out how few working days there are before Christmas, and how much Andrew and I keep trying to squeeze in.

Of studs and LEDs


29th October 2017

The 'hit count' on this blog has been well up for the last couple of weeks – I gather it has had plugs on NatPres and something called Facebook (I'm not one for social media, but then a decade ago I'd never have thought of doing a weekly blog) so firstly a welcome to all new readers and I hope you'll hang around. It can get lonely here on my own.

Of battles and wars

22nd October 2017

It has been busy this week for most of the wrong reasons.
