Went on the usual walk around the golf course with the geriatrics today. Still wore my kilt and thermal draw is which I may have to abandon in favour of my plus fours, which I have just had adapted with Velcro and loops, as frankly, the kilt was getting a little bit chilly.
I wore my specially designed thermal wrap round drawers, made for me dear Janet Bingley, under my kilt for my weekly walk around the golf course.

I am really excited to see the finished result although I have already worked out a more simplified, cheaper version 2, once I am satisfied that this one works. The first thing will be to get it […]
