Bought two new pairs of work shoes on Friday. Encouraged by the salesman to go smaller than the size I usually go for. Two days in and I’m in agony, hobbling about. Will be revisiting the shop tomorrow with a pleading ‘have mercy’ look in my eyes.

Caught up with the F1 last night. The ‘fake scenery’ graphics are getting to be a bit too much. Feels like they are messing with a sense of authenticity, which can’t be a good thing for a sporting event.

Thoughts are with Berkhamsted local Michael Broadwith who is attempting the record time for cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats. His ride can be tracked live here and tweets are being posted at @endtoend2018.
