Thursday… again!

Where is the time going? Half way through the year already and it doesn’t seem 5 minutes since I was gingerly driving up snow covered roads on the way to work, and now we are swltering in the heat!

Must be the heat confusing me as the next ECP isn’t for another 2 weeks because the six weekly regime has started. I’m really not looking forward to London in this heat – if the heat wave continues.

Last weekend was busy – crossing the border into Wales for my brother-in-law’s ordination at Newport Cathedral, then back to Corsham on Sunday afternoon. I shall be back homefor the weekend, although Felicity is away at the Henley regatta, so I must start the next lot of coursework!

On another note, I expect you, like me, get a few e mails with subject lines containing “Urgent – please pass this on to all your friends immediately” or similar lines in the subject line. The e mail then goes on to describe something that “happened to friend” or “has been verified by Microsft/some-company/some police force” and so on.

These e mails are almost invariably hoaxes, so before forwarding them on, it is worth taking 30 seconds or so to enter the subject line as a Google search. This will usually bring up several web sites that will verify (or otherwise) the authenticity of these e mails – so far I have never seen a genuine one! They are just another variation of the old chain letters that used to circulate by post.

Onwards and upwards!

    Dear Peter,

    I am not sure if you will remember me: I first met you on the top floor of St Thomas’ when you were being admitted, I think for the first time – and I was the junior registrar. Not long afterwards I headed to Yorkshire to be married, and we are still here 9 years on. I have often wondered how you are, and what has happenned over the years. I just looked at for the morning news, and the picture of Lt Col Thorneloe, sadlt killed, reminded me of you. It had never occurred to me before to try googling your name, but it did today and I have just found your brilliant blog, and begun to catch up a little. I will have to stop in a moment as the litte people here are running riot – Joseph(6y), Annabel (4y), Sebastian (2y) – but I just wanted to send you all my best wishes. You always were very inspiring…I can see that hasnt changed!

    With all best wishes, Beki James (nee Briffa)

    Hi Beki,

    Yes of course I remember you – although it seems a long time ago now – and delighted to see that there are three little James’s around.

    A lot has happened (little dreamt of at the time!) since those days at St Thomas’s (Transplants, scares) but still here. I’ll send you a longer e mail with the details – the blog only really covers the last three years since the mini MUD in January 06 (and the scare 12 months later!) Lots of photos in the gallery too!
