Brrr.... it's clear and cold out there.

Going to take the toots for a walk.

May test the Alpha jacket tomorrow. Cannot understand how it works given it weighs less than a feather and is thinner than the OH's neglige.

Laters.

    Ciao

    Hiss wet through out on moors earlier, now warming myself off and about to have some coffee.

    Had relish Irish stew for lunch so that was all nice.

    Quiet afternoon then vino, cuddles with the Bambini (aaaahhhhhh) and iPlayer BBC4 programme about the Palio that we missed.

    Hmm, might watch that thing on the Palio myself. I do like Siena. We've booked our favourite place in Tuscany again this summer. I can pass the time drinking coffee and watching the world go by from Bar Dante. One of my favourite places in the world, and it's run by friends of mine.
    Was going to work on the Mini but the harridans over the road have ditched their soft roader in front of the garage so I can't get it out. I nearly took their door off it's hinges knocking but they are either out or hiding. Ignorant tarts. Done a couple of jobs in the house, should probably eat something now.

    Harridans. Word of the day.

    Chapeau.

    Top half of that post sounds idyllic - would be perfect if TDLO was there was well, but we can't have everything.

    Second part sounds like someone needs a punch in the throat.

    Car is still there, I'm seriously unimpressed. Just called the old bill to get it towed, doubt they'll get round to it any time soon so I've arranged to borrow a very large trolley jack off a mate so I can move it myself in the morning. Ignorant, selfish, ugly, carpet munching bitches.

    Evening Wasters,

    Up in the frozen North today. Just walked though a hailstorm to get to the chippie. Cider is in the fridge for later and the Champions are on form in the footy so all is good for now.

    The old dear is in hospital and a bit confused but at least she is recovering well from her op and will be out by Tuesday.

    10th. I'm definitely a child of the 70's though. Must have been those 3 day weeks. See what happens when the unions take over :lol:

    Some lights on over the road so went to ask them to move the car. Someone else looking after the house as the owners have gone to Barcelona. Apparently burnt out cars are moved as a priority. I'm worried I might damage the garage if I torch the thing though.
    Seriously, how thoughtless can people be?
    Hope the old dear is alright Stevo. Things like that must be a worry when you get to your age. Belated happy birthday BBG, hope you enjoyed it inappropriately.

    So we have Len McLuskey's predecessor to blame for you? :) Blame the Yanks for me - my old man who shares the same birthday with me exactly 40 years apart - was RAF ground crew at the end of WW2 and apparently was due to get shipped out to the Pacific to help fight the Japanese until they nuked Hiroshima and Nagasaki...

    Thanks V. She's OK physically and due to come out Mon/Tues but getting good a bit confused. Convinced someone has stolen her slippers and glasses which are at home. And keeps talking about cats even though none of us have any :?

    Nah mate, you couldn't be more wrong..
    My mum and dad were both military when I was born. My mum was kicked out cos she was with me. My dad was allowed a pay rise (70 s were great) as he was in the army. True story (as told by dad):
    CO: Congratulations, private x, you are a father. Mum and child doings well.
    Dad: Lovely, am I allowed to know whether it's a boy or girl?
    CO: Piss off and stop wasting my time. RSM, march this idiot out.
    Should explain he was in Belfast at this time, so there could have been stuff going on.
