The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

Mick here again.

I'm pleased to say that today's whinge count stands at zero.

I know that, because each time I pointed out what I perceived to be a whinge emanating from Gayle's direction she corrected me quite emphatically that what she was saying wasn't a complaint, but merely a statement of fact.

Not entirely sure what the difference is, but there are 60+ days left for me to learn the nuances of whinge vs statement.

    Re the deleted comment - word = Oops!

  3. Great stuff - I am envious and keen to get started myself. There is nothing like the anticipation of finding out what is round the next corner, and it's great when it turns out to be a café.

    I have just successfully downloaded an app for the iPhone called BlogPress which allows me to put photos on my blog from the iPhone.

    Unfortunately I have now found that I cannot make my dates coincide with you passing through Ilkley.

    I am changing my email address to

    All the best.
