This was snapped half hour or so after I’d been scraped off the tarmac by some kindly ambulancemen having had a particularly nasty cycle smash. What you can't see is my snapped pelvis and my broken left shoulder. I’m smiling because I’ve been given a huge dose of morphine and I’ve just seen the beautiful young nurse who’s going to clean my wounds.
My heartfelt thanks to the absolutely wonderful staff at The West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds who glued me, stitched me, set my smashed bones and generally nursed me back to my old self. Humpty Dumpty should have had the NHS - truly one of the great achievements of the civilised world.
Anyway, that’s where I’ve been recently. Normal service will be resumed shortly.
