It's a fine fish but a bit like fishing at the circus there.

P.s. hope the legs on the mend.
I have laid aside business, and gone a'fishing.

Still waiting for my op, Wednesday is my best guess? I am getting a bit fed up with being in Hospital just waiting. They wouldnt let me home because they want the leg to be immobile prior to surgery. Oh well we all have our crosses to bear and it could be a lot worse!

Hang in there. Dream of fishing.

I had to laugh at the 83.8% of British record, is that a new way the angling press have come up with to further demean magnificent fish?

I have at the moment thanks but I'm struggling a bit to focus on small print, I think it's the morphine?
