After a full on mountainous downpour yesterday the skies have cleared to reveal full sun today so whilst the others chill at the pool I'm off to tick a box. Pics when something resembling a decent connection appears!

    Very, very windy here, so currently coffee before hound walking.

    After that, no plans at all for anything, so may go to the flicks with the Bambini.

    5am ... Gale force winds, pitch black, pouring rain .... Hmmmm mountain route on Zwift whilst the espresso machine pre-heats

    Family will be up by 7/8 am and it will back to watching Fairys on tv and playing my little pony mixed with Lego

    Oh the joys

    Sorting a few things out post hols and replenishing the supplies. Apart from that it will be a quiet one. Could do with a bit more sleep, which should be easier now the Olympics are finishing.

    Early riser .... Sounds hard work, but no one bothers you at 5am, work, kids, wife, beggars, salesmen, charity workers, the devout, Everest, car drivers ... All of them, whom normally try to convince you that there is more important than yours, for some reason, don't need your time or money at 5am

    It's me time

    Blah blah bullsh1t. I bet he collected vintage Budweiser, Becks and Carlsberg. 2015 was a jolly good year for all of them.

    Stevo, perhaps I should post this little Vtech gem in the grammar school discussion in the other place. I'm pretty sure they would take the advice on board.
    I have advised people to buy their kids 6 lafite each birthday as investment for school fees and EVERYONE who has done this has ZERO to pay when the time comes.

    Fraid to say I'm not an oenophile. Sounds a bit too much like something else that ends in 'ophile'. Need to find the post from our resident gumshoe where he outed he who cannot be named as a bit of a Walter Mitty.

    Yep. The very one. He hasn't really been back since you blew his cover.
