Compared to some visits in the summer I've lasted quite well, only a cold sore on my lip, a couple of sores on my hands and fingers (the water is very hard and has always had this effect on my skin) and the usual painful ankle/knee/shoulder combo that seem to have made it harder than usual to get to sleep on the harder than accustomed bed.
We did some gardening for my mum yesterday, nothing too complicated, just clearing dead flower stalks and creepers from her front plot. My shoulder did ache more than normal last night, so that was probably why. As a treat after gardening the OH and I walked around to the pub, the Blacksmith's Arms. There was morris dancing, mulled wine and a hog roast. The place was heaving - well done pub!

This time I had Hook Norton's Twelve Days - the bottle we bought in B&M last week. Yummy. Dark and malty - just the way I like them.
