    Thanks for reminding me I've only got 4 more days of freedom :evil:

    Anyway, happy new year to all you feckers :D

    Today is a family get together at my mums so that means more overeating :lol:

    Another night away in theory sounds fun, but as both kids are Sick we ended up in the room by 8pm last night, luckily I had bought champagne in bulk :)

    Today is a swim and a nice lunch out again as the kids seem ok until the sun goes down

    Right onwards to a pig based breakfast

    Happy New Year Gits :)

    Long drive South for me, will pass the time listening to footy on the radio. That's about it for now...

    I've spent most the day pebble dashing the toilet. Great start to the year.

    Off to the aunt's house for the yearly family get together. Could be interesting.

    It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.

    Morning all, if it is still morning.
    Happy new year and all that nonsense. Has anyone started the celebrity death pool yet? Need to have a think about that, Brucey and Phil the Greek let me down last year. Good to see Wilko Johnson survived the year.
    Watched Jools H last night and Ed Sheeran covered Masterblaster, amazingly it worked. That or I was really drunk.
    Should finish the Cotic today. Later may involve eating lentils, I hate lentils. It's an Italian tradition my Mum adheres to. Eat lentils on New Year's Day and you will come into money that year. Bleurgh!
    Onwards, to the trots...

    Morning, too much beer and cake last night!

    Meant to be cycling to a meal at 1pm, feeling rough so should be a laugh.

    Happy New Year!

    Good start to the year, Cotic is built. It was dark by the time I was done so minor fettle tomorrow to get everything running right, then once I've got the position sorted after a few rides cut hoses and such like. Lentils and pig's trotter have been eaten. Might wash it down with a beer.
  • Happy New Year!

    In work today, meh! Got an epic planned for tomorrow morning though.

    Somebody say beer...
