10 year olds can be quite stroppy too. My nephew is a case in point.

Great to meet old friends and new at the Sir Daniel Gooch in Swindon yesterday early evening - for their information, I caught the 19:36 Westbury train with just a couple of minutes to spare - such was the good company that I really wanted to stay on until the 21:06, but I had a curfew of 21:00 to be home (to be available to let hotel guests in after that time if they locked themselves out!)

I'll leave it to individuals to identify themselves.

Ollie is too youthful and you are just indecisive when it comes to facial adornments.  Grin

And thanks to Lee too ... last head of this morning having landed on a ferry from France at Portsmouth on a rail replacement bus up to Southampton ...

Dunno ... that was a good pint, though.  Let me join in with the significant (also merry) crowd on the way back down from Chippenham to Melksham - they had been to the match against Bristol Rovers where the lost; a cheerful admission that their team had not performed well, and an almost embarrassing thankfulness that they can now get home by train on Saturdays.

From our group in Swindon, I was humbled to learn so much of members I've not met before, or only sat down with very briefly - and I'm thankful that although I have life issues going on at the moment, in many ways I'm having (thus far) an easy path through life's cycles, even though some of the current cycles are the steeper and mrs significant.
