Morning Losers!

Well Christmas was a mediocre affair in the Mules stable. Dad slowly losing his marbles doesn't really add to the Christmassy feel, so it hasn't been a great one.

Todays plan was to go to the football, maybe check out some sales for stuff I'm after beforehand, however it's rained none stop for the last 12 hours, and the game has been postponed.

Hmm

Laters!

  • Where abouts is he Step83?
    Bury is on red alert as the river has burst its banks in some places, and right at the brink in others. It's due to rain all night, so people are preparing for the worst. Luckily, my parents live up a hill, we're ok for now

    Up in Ribchester a bit north of Blackburn got him out early hes staying nearby just no one else around that could help.
    The Ribble runs not far from his an it peaked at six meters today so with more rain on the way it was best to get him out, the brook over the back of his is what is causing the concern at the minute.

    Evenin' All,

  • Greetings all,

    Well my Dentist can suck a big fat one along with the weather and Christmas. Bah Humbug. After cracking my tooth and exposing the nerve and getting an abscess under it (severe pain) around three weeks ago. My dentist thought it be best to rescue it, even though I said yank it out but he wouldn't pull it for me (no tongue in cheek haha). So temp filling decided to come out Christmas Eve been suffering since. Ne Dentists open etc.

    Currently watching River Calder flood its banks, thought we was meant to get snow this time of year.

    And never found my bargain Stumpy FSR yet, though one came close but had a dent on the top tube.

    Best pressie I received was a book, shocking for me as I am Mr Gadget, but Grey Wolf shall be an interesting read.

    Hope everyone else had a good ole yule time.
