HAZY said:Hi Mike, sorry to hear your leg is giving you more problems and hope the doctors can sort it out quickly for you; it will be great to see you if you manage to get up to LM so good luck.
I think for this year, LM will sadly be off my list.
I've just found out my son has booked a full on weekend at Silverstone for the F1, along with things taking a backward turn on my leg. It isn't new, its a regular event, With the help of my wife, it can managed, but it also means not going out.
The booking was supposed to be a surprise until nearer the time as a belated Fathers Day pressie, and a thank you for the support I've given him in retaining his house after his partner walked out, so my priority is to get things as near right as I can for the weekend. In view of the hosp appt still yet to be conf, he had to let me know so I don't end up double booking myself.
So I don't want to let him down.
I sincerely hope all goes well, the weather behaves and everyone has a good time.

completely understand Mike, it's been a difficult two and half years for everyone without added commitments and trying to get medical appointments, etc, I still feel very far away from the old "normal" life we used to lead and guess we are all living with a "new kind of normal" doing our best to get back into daily life and catching up with all things things we had to put off during the pandemic.
Really sorry we won't see you at LM but as you say, another time and we can always catch up at Burton Mere or Parkgate when you get free time.
Kind regards, Ann

Likewise, and thank you.
Three of us have arrived, Mike & I drove up this morning arriving 8.30am & MC just arrived by train from London. Those who have yet to travel pack your thermals lol. Feeling a bit chill with wind & birds hunkering down. Strong winds & intermittent showers for couple of days so warm waterproof needed. I have no camera gear with me so only mobile for close ups. Waiting in cafe for my latte ! .
Looking forward to any posts & pics you manage, have a great time everyone!
