Eddie Stobart and Ankles

Today I had a hospital appointment at Airedale with orthopod Mr Wray.   We deviated for our normal straightforward route because one of Eddie Stobart's finest had had a coming-together with the bridge over the river Aire at Consiton Cold some days ago, resulting in queues and traffic lights from now until Kingdom Come:

Ancient masonry and modern traffic sometimes don't mix well.    

Anyway, we took the scenic route via Airton and Gargrave to Airedale Hospital, which was delightful.

Mr Wray probed my Achilles-less left ankle and taking all things into consideration decided that an operation would be too risky.   I shall continue without a left Achilles tendon and hope it heals - if I behave myself and don't climb any ladders or sign up for any Olympics.
