    I used to spend a lot of summers in Dorset at Swanage, that was a lovely place for a holiday.

    I went to Swanage a couple of years ago because everyone said I would love the Jurrasic coast. It was lovely but not a dinosaur insight.

    Now, I'm worried that I may have offended you which means I have one more thing to worry about which is far more important that Jam, Cream and Scones.

    You've offended me too. Sometimes there is nothing more important in my life than cake.

    If you worried a bit more about things like jam, cream and scones, cider_and_toast , then you’d spend less time worrying about worrying things. Just saying.

    Now I'm worried about why I don't find cake so worrying.

    There you go. No time for worrying about worrying things now.
    No, don’t thank me.

    :ok:

    When you begin to worry, try stopping and concentrating on breathing slowly and deeply, it helps to get rid of the worry I've found :)

    Cake is important, who doesn't enjoy a treat of a sticky bun or a cream cake, or a scone with jam and then cream? :snigger:

    I’ve tried the big slow breaths when the worry gremlins turn up in the middle of the night. It is quite a useful technique.

    I find a good bottle of wine helps best :)
    And if you still worry after, have another...

    Exactly why you need it. 5 mins a day. Don't have to become Maharishi or anything. It's very effective.

    But not after too much wine...

    Had a wonderful Christmas Night many years ago at The Star in Ashton Under Hill.

    Started riding from Pershore to Broadway to meet a mate on Christmas evening (after the night shift). Halfway I stopped for a pint that turned into two.

    Anyway, there was a fantastic spread of food laid out for the locals and I was invited to join them.

    I didn't get to my mates.

    We drank the pub dry.

    The ride home took a very long time.
    With most of the time spent falling into snow covered hedges...

    The best Christmas ever

    Thanks to anyone who may be here who was there all those years ago.

    I wasn't there but know where Pershore is as it has a college in our group (the Warwickshire college group) and I know where Broadway is thanks to my sons love of steam trains.

    Back when I was growing up in Pershore it had a pub for every 500 people...

    It was about the only thing going for it :)

    One of my cousins is obsessed with steam trains, always has been. He lives in Norfolk and has pretty much lived and breathed them for years from what I know. I don't understand it myself, saying that, we sometimes get steam trains coming through our station and they are nice to see. It was amazing how many people showed up the day the Flying Scotsman was going through, it was insanely packed on both platforms so I'm told.
