As I started to go running the other day, I thought someone was playing their radio a bit loud. But, on my first lap of the neighbourhood, I came across a live 10-piece traditional Chinese band, complete with microphoned, wailing singer. At first I thought it had been commissioned for a funeral or a house-moving, as we've never had an orchestra playing outisde the flat before. But it seems they just chose that spot to practise that day. They've not returned since. What with dodging the crowd that gathered to watch them, avoiding the kid on roller-skates, weaving between two prams, jumping a cat and ducking under a dozen caterpillars hanging from overhead tree branches by spidery threads, I wasn't really able to get up much of a speed. (And that, brother Dave, is my excuse for not beating your recent "10km in an hour" record. That, plus only running 5km ...also in an hour!).
