Circumstances and weather have stopped me walking recently; none of that affects my ability to walk given the chance. I have been self isolating for seven days until I have a minor op appointment next Tuesday (nothing serious I hope.) Consequently I had to have a Covid test. Despite adverse criticism of the testing system I can't complain. I had a call on my mobile yesterday which the hospital had told me to expect. I was given an appointment this morning at Lancaster for 9:15 am, only half an hour's drive. I arrived early and was seen straightaway. The test was quite painful in a minor sort of way: they do have to push the device a long way up each nostril.
I hope to get back to some walking again after next Tuesday
Another little football rant. I watched the England/Wales game the other night. There was an incident where a player was close to the goal where he put in an unsuccessful shot. At the same instant a half hearted tackle came from behind. The commentator said "He should have gone to ground there" implying that the player should have cheated by engineering a penalty. If that is how the commentators think the game should be played there is little hope for football being any kind of role model for sportsmanship and morality.
