Boot off and crutches gone - my broken fibula has healed in the 6 weeks since I did it and I can now hobble about without those supports!

Still very wary on the stairs but I won't miss having to put that boot on and off when I need to go to the loo during the night. Just got to wait for the swelling and bruising to go down but it can only get stronger now from day to day.

I remember when I broke my fibula playing for SZ. Felt like a dead leg so tried to run it off for a few mins. Drove home went to work and the pain wouldn't go so went to A&E 2 days later.

Glad yours is healing. Not being able to do things you always take for granted is a real eye opener

Went out for dinner finally last night over to the 🐔Inn in Hawkwell. Good food at a decent price. Felt good to eat out and give some money to a local business.

Now off to have a mooch round a boot sale for the first time in years

Can't believe the word for a male chicken is being starred out so have had to use an emoji 😂😂😂

We've had our daughter and partner down for a long weekend. Lovely to see them after over a year but now they are on their way back to Brum and we are completely knackered. So, couldn't be bothered to cook we drove down to the sea front and had a cone of chips each and two of those giant battered sausages, all from the Las Vegas Grill. The chips and the sausages were absolutely great and we sat in the car scoffing our chips and sausages contentedly. Simple pleasures ending to a great weekend. Car stinks a bit of chips but who cares.

The Three Kings, just down the road from Upton in Hanley Castle. Ex UK CAMRA pub of the year but like stepping back in time 200 years.

The Malvern Hills are an essential walk I suggest starting from British Camp if you are reasonably fit. It is a couple of hours walk to Malvern via the highest point.

In Malvern itself The Nags Head is a great pub with a large selection of beers and The Anupam is a fantastic Indian restaurant. It's more expensive than your typical curry house but worth the difference. I can recommend The Anupam staff curry which is made with slow cooked lamb on the bone.

If you need a taxi book in advance. Its not like Southend when you can get one any time of day/night.

Thanks for the recommendations. Currently staying at Platform 3. A trip to
Worcester yesterday. Anupam delivered last night - great biryani. Walk up hill today and just back from an afternoon session at the Nags Head. Cracking pub! Cheers.

Enjoy your visit. I used to live there and love the place.
