Quite the wanderer lately, David. Not satisfied with zooming up and down the Jurassic Coast you've upped sticks and gone abroad, you little Bill Bryson you.  I used to do stuff like that, but as I get older I find I can't be arsed to stir my stumps too far from home.  And there's the lady of course; before my last little jaunt she looked at me with those big cow eyes and said she wished I wasn't going.  How's a man supposed to summon up the spirit of adventure under those circumstances?

But I still find it exciting to bolt on the rack and panniers and I love the planning and the maps.  Especially the maps.  Bugger the satnav, there's no better leisure activity than looking at a map.  I even have plans to paper the long wall in the dining room with old Ordnance Survey maps and charts of the French coast.  But I'll have to play my cards carefully; the last time I floated the idea those big cow eyes flashed a violent shade of angry.

"I had my septum pierced today by the lovely Hannah. A friend saw it and said I'd win the Alresford Show, the next thought I had boogers!"
