ACHoooooooooooooooo!!

Well it’s Thursday and here I am still down with the lurgi.

So Orton Mere will be closed on Saturday although of course the train service will still stop at the station.

Sitting here feeling quite terrible, and it’s costing me a fortune in screen wipes to get rid of what I am spluttering over the computer screens!

It’s fair to say I would not wish this on my worst enemy, that’s how bad it is!! Still I am sure we will get over it, but a Sunday freezing at the station would do nothing to help at all. Hopefully normal service will be resumed next weekend, we shall see.

So I will sit here now coughing sneezing and generally feeling miserable….

This is a good visual indication of how I feel

Good start to the year

Well that’s Christmas and New Year out of the way. The wife bought me a cordelss drill at Christmas so heaven knows what jobs she has planned for me over the coming months.

Tomorrow sees a steam service running, though how many visitors we get will very much depend on the weather. Unfortunately my station will be closed although the trains will stop. But the wife and I are down with a dose of the lurgi, and I am coughing enough to be mistaken for a misfiring engine. Hopefully normal service will be resumed next week all being well.

My target at home at the moment is to have a cull of my computer stuff, I have no room for anything and it’s really irritating me no end. I did say I would have a clear out when I retired at the end of November but at the moment I have one more computer than I did then, which was not the plan at all. So I can see that sometime next week when I no longer cough everywhere I will start the clear out and I think I will have to be quite ruthless..

We also have plans for a sort out at the station and perhaps a bit of a move round, so watch for progress on that at some stage.

Now to find a bit of paper and make a list of what I can get rid of…..
