Back from my lightning trip to Cardiff.

Although it was a hassle going across, it was definitely worthwhile. It seems I have an Incredible Shrinking Stump. Old Mr S has lost 2cm in circumference in a fortnight.

I only wish I could say the same about my beer gut.

My prosthetist, Ian, bulked up the inside of the socket of the artificial leg with a liner, which has made for a much tighter and snugger fit. Sorted -- for another couple of weeks at least.

As a result, details of the new Amputee of the Week will have to wait until tomorrow.

However, this week's belated BBC diary (hey, don't blame me....I filed it on Wednesday) is now online here -- featuring "war reporter Jamie Tarabay." Yay!

Discuss "Beyond Northern Iraq"
