I can put it down to many things, in particular Mrs P’s ongoing recovery from her hip operation. There is nothing so dull as other people’s ailments, just to say that it is nothing drastic, but it is taking time.
Part of the recovery is taking the occasional gentle stroll and above is a photo I took at the weekend when we had a wander round Etherow Country Park. It shows the weir where the River Goyt bends to feed the keg pool.
Something else that took up a lot of my time last week was a new gizmo I bought to transfer video to my PC. I got it because it was better than half price, but I hadn’t really thought it through. Like whether I still had a video player or not.
We used to have quite a good player and I was sure that I had put it away in the garage on the grounds that I rarely throw anything away, but I couldn’t find it.
I eventually managed to borrow one from my sister that was tucked away in her loft and set about transferring a small mound of tapes to video and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the recordings considering they were over twenty years old.
But you’ll be pleased to hear that I won’t be posting them to YouTube. If there is one thing more boring than other people’s ailments, it’s videos of other people’s children!
