My writings recently have been niggardly.

Not down to laziness or ill health, but due to the arrival at last of the Transplant & Dialysis Games bandwagon into town.

So far, I've done a lot of talking and little in the way of participating, but that will all change tomorrow.

I don't expect to come away with any shiny objects around my neck, but I do hope to do myself and Brendan proud.

I'll let you know how it goes when I complete my lap of honour next weekend (no mean feat when you're dragging a machine behind you).


  1. BEST OF LUCK REG!! Take home gold!

  2. Milo Shaper - Thank you. I'll do my best to bring home something metallic. Even if it's only hoopy earrings from the local jewel thief ;)

  3. Yes the very best of luck Reg, I'll await news of your success with breath bated.

    Great photo, by the way.

  4. On your marks...

    Good luck Reg. You look great by the way!

  5. Congrats on your first well-deserved Gold, keep them coming! Go Team!

  6. Radge - Thank you. I'm sure Juliette brought you the glad tidings already. 'Twas a good day.

    Holemaster - I think I look deadly too. Almost like a proper athlete

    Milo Shaper - You're too kind...but yes it was well-deserved!

  7. She did indeed, was talking to her yesterday. I'm only sorry I can't make it today - have to work.

  8. Congratulations on the medals, I'm delighted for you. I saw something about the games on Nationwide the other day and was wondering if you'd be taking part.

    Yes, despite being a sprightly 28 years old, I watch Nationwide with a zeal that borders on religious.

  9. Radge - I missed your Brain Day with all the excitement. Apologies.

    Andrew - All I have heard of my Nationwide appearance has been laughter from my 'friends'.

    Don't be ashamed of your interest in the show. Never has there been a tv presence quite like that of Michael Ryan

  10. Brilliant Regina,

    Congratulations ... and keep up the fight ... which you defo seem to be doing. Never knew you were so 'sporty' when we worked together!

  11. Ciaran - I'm not quite so 'sporty' as my results may suggest! Beginner's luck and all that. But ya, I'm stil fighting ;)
