My back appears to be slowly on the mend. The physio I saw yesterday had a reasonable hypothesis for why my hips hurt. So naturally, it's time for something else to go. And about two weeks ago, it was my right elbow.

Last night's fencing didn't help. Lots of (self-inflicted) pain.

So, overjoyed at having to lug tons of stuff down to a field in Essex in two days' time, for the British Fed's bi-annual meeting.

Yes, "a field in Essex." All right, so it's a bit more posh, but it's still camping. In a tent. With, apparently, nowhere in a five-mile radius to buy food, etc. so all that has to be carried, too.

There just better be a public toilet on site available all weekend, that's all I'm saying.
