Another month has slipped away into obscurity, which can only mean it’s time for the post that saves you reading the rest of my nonsense.
More random fluctuation this month…
May 1: 219.2 pounds (15 stone 9.2 pounds, 99.4 kg)
May 31: 217.3 pounds (15 stone 7.3 pounds, 98.6 kg)
That’s a fall of 1.9 pounds (0.9kg). I have been lighter at various points in the month, but the general trend is int he right direction…
Well, with two trips away (a short one to Leeds and a long one to Bristol and Wales), there may have been some additional eating involved. On the other hand, with the occasional lapse, I have been reducing the wine consumption, which should help…
Being away in Leeds and Bristol did cause some additional walking, but other than that I haven’t done a lot…
This month’s total is 35, which is low enough to make this site look very quiet. It may stay that way for a while…
After two weekends away (Leeds and Wales, for those not paying attention, or with worse memories than mine), it was back to my normal Saturday routine today. After a bit of a lie in (past 8am!), I got up, had some coffee and caught up with things before heading out to breakfast at Frankie & Benny’s, where the espresso was plentiful and the food delicious. I then did exciting things like the shopping and putting the washing on before going to work. Yes, work. Last night, we had to shut down all our servers to allow for electrical testing, and once that was done, we had to start them all up again, so I went in for about three hours to make sure everything was up and running. Fun. Sort of.
Anyway, today’s photo is of Porthcawl’s lighthouse:

 Quite an achievement
 Caution: may include Geoff
After an outrageously early start to the day, I arrived in Bristol just before 9am today. I walked over to the office, then almost immediately walked to the new office to see a BT engineer. I spent most of the day there, partly because the BT installation took longer than expected, but also because I had another meeting there. I did pop out briefly for a sarnie at some point. After all that excitement, I went back to the current office for a while before leaving for the hotel, which is where I am now.
Here’s a photo from Fourteen Locks. It’s art. Probably.
After a quiet day yesterday, we had a more active morning today. This started with breakfast at the local Frankie & Benny’s, followed by a trip to the Fourteen Locks Canal Centre, where we saw some canal locks (oddly enough). This was nicely rounded off by a visit to Newport’s Transporter Bridge, which is quite different in design to the Middlesbrough one. Not only did we have a good look at the bridge, but we also had a ride across it. Acts of photography were committed, including this view from the gondola:
