Inflamed Wimp Glands

This week I've done nothing. Well that's not strictly true since I did manage to clean up the workshop, but I've not been able to make any progress on the geared facile. I had rather hoped to be able to work on the wooden patterns this week but my ribs said otherwise. In true man flu tradition, I have hurty ribs.

Doctor, doctor it hurts when I do this
Well don't do it then, stupid boy. etc...

Apparently I have two cracked ribs that will take 4-6 weeks to weld. I suspect that Mr. Middleton's bike was the initial cause and then the act of Dog last week compounded the problem. Either way, I can't use hand tools at the moment even though I have some fantastic pills to take the pain away. Being a road cyclist, or 'stiffback' as my kindly brother Sam refers to me, I'm still able to ride a little. Indeed, not being in the workshop means I've ridden 700km in the last two weeks so I'm getting this much sympathy from my wife.

Normal service should be resumed next week.
