Today Â we woke up to a white out. There was a very heavy frost and the garden, lawns and trees were crystalline. I had planned to go to the golf club but fortunately not until mid-morning by which time the weather had transformed the day into one of the most beautiful of autumn. The bluest […]
The first truly spring-like day, sunny and bright but a chilly wind. I joined the geriatrics this morning and by sharing a buggy with Griggsy was able to walk and ride alternately and in this fashion probably walked about half of the course, albeit in a slow plodding fashion. There is certainly a noticeable deterioration […]
Captainâ€™s Day at Royal Worlington. I went along in the evening, to the AGM,Â because the outgoing captain, Nigel Notley, very kindly nominated the MND Association as this year’s charity and the members very generously donated Â£510 on the day. That will go towards boosting the Great London Swim event.
I toyed with the idea of my weekly walk round the golf course and, having looked at the five-day weather forecast which predicted heavy rain and strong winds (can one always believe the forecasters?), on this occasion I put my trust in them and decided against going. Imagine my delight when I opened my e-mails […]
My first walk round the golf course for over seven weeks – Christmas, New Year and the severe winter weather intervening. I was curious to see how I would manage as IÂ really felt that I had weakened over this period. In the event I managed 13 holes and believed I could certainly have completed […]
The severe winter weather continues so the golf course is closed. In any event, I would not have been tempted to walk around the course in the freezing weather, instead I spent a little longer in bed listening to the first day of the second Â test match, against South Africa, which started with the almost […]
Tuesday, geriatric golf day. Frankly too cold, with sleet and snow threatening, for me to spend three hours wandering round the golf course. History. The prospect was enough to keep me in bed listening to the test match in South Africa where England have acquitted themselves well, declaring with a lead of 232 and ending […]
Went on the usual walk around the golf course with the geriatrics today. Still wore my kilt and thermal draw is which I may have to abandon in favour of my plus fours, which I have just had adapted with Velcro and loops, as frankly, the kilt was getting a little bit chilly.
I wore my specially designed thermal wrap round drawers, made for me dear Janet Bingley, under my kilt for my weekly walk around the golf course. They were very effective and I’m delighted with them.Â Although I did have elect the assistance of a club member to adjust them after I had been to the […]
As we were not due to leave for the airport until late afternoon I took the good doctor to the golf club to join the geriatric walk round and lunch. He is still working quite hard so I am sure that the exercise did him some good. We had a good blow which set us […]
