Bits and Bobs!

Winter Excitement!

Well, what an exciting day! Three medals for team GB at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang!!

With two of those medals being won by “local” athletes who train just down the road at Bath University, they had to be my blip for the day. Bath Uni has the only push-start track in the UK so it's where the British Bobsleigh and Skeleton and Association are based. (Collage made from photos I took of the tv screen from the comfort of my armchair!)

And if that excitement wasn’t enough for one day, we had an earthquake this afternoon! Yes, a real earthquake!! Only a minor earthquake with a 4.4 magnitude, and an epicentre in South Wales, but it was still strong enough to shake the house. You can read more about it here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-43097113

(Started catching up with replies to your kind comments today, hope to finish tomorrow...)
