Good evening everybody,

Tomorrow is the 26th anniversary of my injury in Cyprus, enough said, I'll leave it there.

Before going further to say so thank yous, big thank yous at that! Thanks Neil Berryman when I have another six months worth of medication under new power lead for the trailer, much appreciated. The other one is to the wardens at Warwick caravan site who found a quiet spot to plug in get some laundry done, I must get all the bedding and clothes washed after dirty paws been on it. They also gave me a small, portable digital television that's now mounted on the ceiling of the trailer I just need to be a spot where get television signal now.

Right onto the not so nice part for me my head is not a good place amount struggling a bit, all the tools, tricks and techniques of been taught over the summer by veterans NHS Wales aren't touching it and I feel really low and emotional craving peace and quiet which I did get that Warwick caravan site...

The emotional side has not been helped by watching Invictus games and everyone doing so well, I'm glad I met some of these lads when they been training, a real inspiration, I've no idea what kind of sport I'd be able to do to even come close to them, possibly mobility scooter racing ;)

I'm back in Stratford-upon-Avon the next few nights whilst the storms moved through then it will be onto Evesham, possibly Tuesday.

I still plodding away at the location data for the Imperial War Museum and as users on Facebook were seen I find some funny place names as I'm doing it, a couple of bits below give you an idea...

It really does exist!

Sid James and the carry on team would have loved this place!
