    ...being able to relax on here for a while with my pc!
    I`ve just returned from a charity karting race in aid of "Soldiers at Ease" and I`m aching in places that I never knew existed.
    My team of 4 drivers was made up of some friends with whom we race karts once every month in the karting circuits` "Fatties and Forties" league, where to qualify you have to be over 40 years old, or overweight!!!
    Some of the karts are noticably quicker than the others and I was lucky [or rather unlucky] in that my kart was one of the quicker ones. I say "unlucky" because instead of 2x30 minute stints, my team kept me out for 2x45 minute stints of the 2 hour race.
    We finished 3rd, having completed 290 laps....1st place did 292 laps, and second did 291, so it was a very close run thing.

    It was for a very worthy cause but I now just need a long soak in a hot bath.
