My back went ping this morning, so any strangeness in this post may be attributed to the Distalgesic…

We elected to make an early start on the weekend and after the work PC was shut down and the animals fed and exercised, a large and  very hot bath was enjoyed, while suitably chilled white wine was deployed.
