A repeat of the Indian Summer days we have enjoyed over the weekend as I walked round the golf course at Worlington. My arms might be giving up but so far my legs are holding out. It seems that I might have been too pessimistic about England’s prospects in the cricket world series in South […]

With the Irish commitment out-of-the-way my thoughts have begun towards the lectures in China and wondering how well I will manage even with the good doctor’s support – certainly, there will be no liquid lunches on those three days! I suppose I started thinking about this as I sat, in a deckchair, in the warm […]

After catching up with my backlog of e-mails I had a home visit from a very nice member of the AbilityNet team – Jodie Parkes. This was so much more satisfactory than the ‘remote assist’ telephone conference which I had previously. Jodie was very quickly able to assess my limitations and future needs. He was […]

Fortunately I recovered overnight and awoke reasonably refreshed and after a hearty breakfast we set off to explore Trinity College University and the 20th-Century paintings at the National Gallery which my lovely was particularly keen to see. On the way she very kindly bought me a beautiful pale lemon Donegal tweed waistcoat. There was a […]

Alice and I flew to Dublin today for me to give the Ken McQuillan Memorial Address to the Irish Branch of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. We stayed in an extremely comfortable hotel, the Radisson Royale, and were wonderfully looked after, throughout the visit by our hosts. Rather too well, as it turned out at […]

The City Branch of the Arbitration Club lunch today. This one at the offices of Clifford Chance’s in Bishopsgate, so not too far to travel from Liverpool Street Station. Although I enjoy these lunches I am not sorry that this present round is coming to an end as they are not doing much good to […]

To East Dulwich for lunch with Chloe, Karl and the grandchildren.  Managed to walk the mile or so from London Bridge to Liverpool Street station without too much effort. England managed to scrape an unconvincing win in the seventh of the one-day series against Australia, mainly due to Swann’s 5  for  28 – one win […]

The Griggs’ and Ensoms came to lunch and we were able to eat in the garden.  A rare event for summer….

I decided to update my patientslikeme.com  profile today, having not done so for a month or so.  I was interested to note that the ALS Functional Rating Score (FRS), which keeps track of one’s overall condition by measuring  symptoms in all parts of the body, grades ‘normal’ in the range between 75 – 25. In […]

Back to London today for the City Branch lunch of the Arbitration Club, at Clifford Chance’s office in Canary Wharf -a bit of a drag.  I overcame the eating problem by asking for 2 large up-turned basins, each covered with a napkin, on which I rested my right arm and my wine glass.  A temporary […]
