Something Happening Down at the Sherwood

I went for a little walk today, I try and get out every day if I can. According to my doctor I will live much longer if I exercise. Usually this exercise consists of walking to the nearest pub which doesn't really count as life saving exercise. Up till a couple of weeks ago I walked to and from work which did count but now I have to get up and go out even though I have no where in particular to walk to. Now the weather here in Torquay hasn't been exactly summer like, unless you live somewhere like the Falkland Island or South Georgia so I haven't been out as much as I should. Today the sun was shinning so I set off for who knows where and ended up 16 minutes later at the hotel. When I was working there it used to take 13 minutes so a couple of weeks inactivity has taken it's toll.

As you can see from the photos someone has been busy boarding up the building. Until now I had been living in hope that someone would ring me and say," I've taken over the company. Can you drive a coach next week?". Well it isn't going to happen any time soon.

A comment from a reader about the Christmas post points out that the Grand Hotel has been trying to get the record for the first place advertising Christmas bookings by having a banner up since the beginning of August. Any advance on that date?
