I've been a bit incapacitated for a few days due to a rather nasty fall. I went over on some very slippery steps in town, and smashed the base of my spine on the stone. Nothing's broken, but I haven't been able to walk properly, and bending or getting out of a chair are painful. I took these pics a few days ago, but haven't felt up to posting them.

I'm no good at laying these posts out (don't know how people do it actually), but the next pic shows chunks of ice three inches thick on the canal. I can't get it to go anywhere else. The freeze went on for a week or so after the ice was broken, so the ultimate thickness would have been considerably more. Not that I'd have risked walking on it!

The rest of the pics were taken round the allotment site.
