Appointment with consultant goes well - with a return to work next Monday! Much relieved and happy to see some semblance of order returning to life. Less good experience with attempting to get insurance and financial matters sorted, and this is potentially a cause of great difficulty. Later, persuaded the DSS to release a payment (goodness knows why they hadn't done so already?!?). Feeling immensely relieved about going back to work. Worked on plugging leaks in gwvedit.

Felt pretty dreadful on waking, due to heavy wine consumption yesterday evening - perhaps I'm just out of practice. Contented myself with a lazy day watching TV (still barely working!), catching up on mail and even working on a speedily approaching OU assignment.

Really hot weather today. "Balanced Energy" for a bit before wandering through an extremely busy town centre to a small fete organised by CRUSE. Shopped and managed to listen to the new Pernice Brothers record before heading out to see an open-air production of "A Comedy of Errors" - performed entirely in hammed up New York/Sicillian accents. It actually made me laugh - something Shakespeare's comedies rarely ever do. It was a small audience but a nice easy atmosphere. Seems the DSS won't pay me until they've visited me!

A better day in some ways - a morning free of the paranoia and frustration which inactivity seems to have installed lately. Tweaked gwvedit a bit too - looks ready for one last push for another release. Later, again borrwed a shower - sadly don't think I can swing that one again, since my arm seems to be healing well.
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
