Good afternoon everyone,

Well it's been three days since I last touched the laptop and rather strange yesterday to be travelling in a car again! It's been a good couple of days meeting up with Neil Berryman again see him again in just over a week's time as he's picking up and take me back to Swansea for a medical. I'm hoping to be to leave the scooter trailer and Missy for one night with my brother near Gloucester. Missy has already been up the trees in the orchard again!

It was an interesting run from Malmesbury to old Sodbury (the old sod is back in all Sodbury) for no reason at all halfway through the morning I felt anxious and panicky, it passed after about 10 minutes, really no idea why. On getting to Acton Turville I found the road had been closed for resurfacing with diversions in place, I didn't have the power to use the diversion and ended up being escorted all the way along the road which is great, it also meant no traffic :-)

Wi-Fi is pretty good here so I get some of the images uploaded that taken over the last few days and an interesting one was as we were driving near Royal Wotton Bassett with past a cross at the side of the road being nerdish I got my tablet out and my phone to see if it was recorded, it wasn't, I ended up phoning London so that they could get someone out to check it the photograph it for the records.

One of the nice things from today and travelling the lanes was the birdlife, a lot of yellowhammers and a few corn buntings which we don't get in Wales, and I've yet to see any fox cubs or brown hares but you never know they might just pop up.
