And be sure to take advantage of any PT offered. That frequently seems to make a big difference in the outcome.

I take it PT is physiotherapy.  As I played at Tai Chi for twenty odd years and attained a instructor grade in the art I recon that I will be able to look after meself in that regard. :hug:

UMM!!! seatbelt ? How about a piece of foam under your jacket to ease any potential pressure . Or an exemption note from the Doc. Mind you that may involve stoppages by the fussies.

Ah it is the position of the seat belt if involved in a crash. Even a minor slow speed bump could cause a fresh break. Not that a superb highly experienced getaway driver such as meself would ever have a bump or crash :hysterical:

The consultant got me a copy of all me x-rays on a cd for me to give to me new doc down in Wales. The cd also had a viewer application on it so I had a good looksee at all the images. Posted Image

Spiffy!

Fortunately for me, when I had my little motorcycle spill back in '02, my scapula (shoulder blade) slammed into my two upper ribs and fractured them without damaging the clavicle. Regardless, it was some of the severest pain I'd ever experienced up to that time. Not fun. :(

Yeah fun is not something I have been familiar with since June. :breakfast:

Mind you looking at the CT scans was pretty darn neat.

Finally got around to selling me good old Rebel. I would have put it back on the road but it needed some work and I just do not have the time. An it would be pretty difficult mechanicking with just one arm.
Had tears in me eyes till I saw what it might fetch on good ol e-bay.Posted Image

You still have time to buy if you fancy a winter project.

I hate being bikeless. This stretch I'm in right now (going on 7 years without a bike) is the longest in my life. :(

Sad indeed I had some great rides round the back lanes in the Lakes. The little old 250 was just the right size for round here.

Silver linning is I got £70 more than I paid for it ten years ago. :clap:

Had a turn down to Wales and back on a hired Rebel . Must say it was a very comfortable ride .Even though it was a particularly frosty winter journey . Carried a lot of gear on the back too.That was along time ago.Sigh!!!

Yup the guy turned up as promised on Saturday morning. Dressed in leather trousers with taht fancy lacing down the legs and a jacket with tons of biker patches. looked every inch a bad ass biker.
Turns out he was from Poland been living and making loot here for ten years doing up old bikes to original or turning them into cool custom bikes. Says that the good old Rebel will probably get a full restore and be back on the road..
So that is neato.
Offered him a Clymer manual and a micro fiche showing all the parts and part numbers etc for a £5 so with the £371 that should have been a total of £376. He gave me £380 and told me not to bother with the change.Sweet.
He had two kids in the van and I gave them a packet of Pattersons shortbread, three satsumas and a click together glider toy that I had had pinned to the wall for a few years waiting for the right kids to come around. They looked well pleased.
So a happy parting of the ways.

Loot came in useful to help pay for me move.I did tell you all I had moved on Thursday. didn't I ?
Last post from Cumbria.
Will be a short delay before service resumes.
Hopefully back on line Monday. :bounce:

Ok so it ain't Monday. Been too tired after the move , which ain't finished yet. Never occurred to me to look, when viewing,  for a tv ariel on the roof, there is not one, as there were tv cables in the kitchen and living room. Turns out they were connected to a satellite dish box which is no longer there, and I need a terrestrial tv ariel anyway for me Talk Talk TV box. Darn it.
Do I care ? Sort of but not a lot.
As I have decent broadband and can watch all sorts stutter/lag free from the tinternet.
Whoopeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Me upload speed is faster than me download speed from the old place.  :clap:

Dawn on the very first morning after me very first night in me new spot. Hurriedly taken as it was very early and the two lads hired to help with unloading the vans, had turned up on time :w00tx100: naturally me and the team were still waking up :sleeping:
My excuse, we had worked very hard the day before loading two vans and driving for seven and a half hours. The trip should have taken five and a half hours. Moral of this part of the tale, do not trust sat navs when travelling in Wales.

After taking the vans back to Cumbria on Friday I loaded the Kia up on Sunday and drove down to Wales. I was totally banjaksed as I had squeezed in a trip to York on Saturday. These are pics from me living room which overlooks the eastuary taken during the day on Monday.

Hmmm English bloke is a bit of a stretch, more a Yorkshireman. In answer, simple economics. Oh and the thirty or so beaches within twenty-five miles. :breakfast:

Looks like you wound up in a really nice place . I wonder how long it will be before you take to the water .Being as it's at the bottom of your hill .

Hope you will be very happy there . The Welch folk are very interested in anybody who wants to learn the local speak .
That will bypass a lot of glass ceilings
Wish you a lot of happiness and good new friends around you .
