Bad news folks:
Short version is this - I was was ambulanced to hospital this morning in what you might say was rather severe pain!!
Spent the day in A&E and basically, the A&E doc said (after I had a CT scan) the most likely reason was that I had a kidney stone/renal colic so I'm loaded up with pain killers & anti-inflams etc & although the pain is reduced it's still there - so I'm buggered for the weekend I'm afraid
I couldn't even walk this when it kicked off this morning & the ambulance folk helpfully dosed me with morphine on the way to A&E
Sorry - but I really think I'd be foolish to trundle off to Cardiff tomorrow after this one so I'm taking he A&E Doc's advice and resting for the weekend and next week if nec. At least I'm home again now and able to relax
But I am very very sad to miss this !! !!
