Saturday workshop

Yesterday I attended a workshop at Pitsford, a village very near to me. As I still find it hard machining I went more for the social side and took along my Kimono to work on.

Today the sun is shining and I decided as it is Sunday and there is not much traffic about that I would have my first attempt at driving since my knee replacement. Very close to the house is an industrial estate so I headed for there and practiced reversing and emergency stopping, I felt like a 17 year old having their first lesson rather than an almost 70 year old that has been driving for over 50 years! All went well but I'm not sure Chris thought he would ever see me again.
