Another blitz to catch up on the week while Vic buys a couple of salwars that apparently she can’t fit her feet into the trousers of. Seek gym for peaceful workout and find to own horror the ladies of Natasha finishing off their weekly workout while listening to ‘The Best of Black Lace’. Tried best to carry on with ‘Agadoo’, ‘The Birdie Song’, ‘Do the Conga’ and the like in the background, but concede defeat in the face of possible mental ill health.

Another excursion planned for tomorrow. Is unlikely to involve nine hours on wooden seated trains like last week.
