This is my first day off in 12, and oh boy am I tired. So tired in fact, that I spent the entire afternoon asleep and the few bits I wasn't asleep I was unable to move, almost as if I'd been drugged.
But I did get out at midday, had my haircut so I feel more human, and then went for a walk down the river and to the park.
There was a lot of traffic parked up on the Farndon Road for some reason, and as I got nearer the park I could see what was going off - a huge rowing regatta was being hosted at the town rowing club, and teams of muscley looking public school kids were lowering themselves into their skiffs and boats and navigating the final yards of the Devon before heading off racing on the Trent.
It's the first time I'd ever seen a spectacle like this in town, and I'm glad for them it was quite mild today, although a sinking wouldn't have been any fun out there.
Tomorrow we are heading off to Donna Nook to see the seals, which should be nice if the big flabby things are still there!
