    Going for haircut. Buzzcut number one. Might buy a scandinavian hat to go with it.

    Yeah Saturday

    Stupid lack of sleep due to the mind going into overdrive as I tried to work out how to get the wife a compromise agreement now she's got a new job - thankfully her current employer doesn't seem to think employment law needs following so we should be ok

    Bright side is I've caught up on the grand tour and enjoyed some tea and I'm now waiting for the sun to come up so I can go for a run

    Later is dad's taxi work and a haircut in town

    Later is a few friends over for dinner including a couple and their four kids who are staying over - should be very loud but fun

    Morning all

    Chill in' for a bit then heading to the gym while bambino is at a party, then just Saturday chores. Maybe do a bit of packing - did I mention I was going to Sweden?

    I'm going to be getting my ski fear out of the loft today to get ready for next Saturday, which will really make V68s morning :)

    Strifey is off to Kingston to have lunch with some of her friends today so that means plenty of time for doing my stuff and looking at snow reports etc 8)

    Kingston, I'll pop by and say hello. What does she look like?

    Don't forget to pop into Asda on the way for a bottle of merlot.

    Steady ride in to work on new shiny bike. Left missis to get grumpy eldest up and out the door for 7.45. I believe it happened with a small amount of prodding with cattle prod.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I cut my own hair (not paying £12 every ten days for a number 2 at the back and sides and trim the top please mate).

    One day as I was doing the back the guard fell off. N2 back and sides plus a shyyyt Zorro stripe grade zero straight up the middle of the back.

    Slightly more awake now. Was a slap head once, didn't like it so was glad when it grew back. Added bonus that there was less grey.
    Off into Kingston with the Mrs shortly so will keep an eye open for a crazed foreign looking bint moaning about her grouchy northerner of a husband.

    shaved bonce for years, the oh likes it and it saves faffing around

    only downside is if i skip more than a couple of days it snags on the pillow and pulling on a hoodie turns into a battle
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    Have a quick look into a place called Côte near the bridge. Then tell them all they're lucky to have such great other halves. If they disagree, lob a grenade in (I'll pay for the grenade :twisted: )

    I've missed a few pm's today as my in box was full, so apologies if there was anything important that needed my attention. But judging the pm's I did receive it was probably a load of guff anyway.

    The cat (Monkey) is staring at me because I am eating dried apricots (his favorite) and he wants some

    Aah, just seen this. Didn't pass Cote as we wound up in Carluccio's, kids joined us for lunch. Quite a nice day out, but too busy for my liking in Kingston. Stole the boy's bike rather than walking home. Managed to buy the wife a new handbag for her birthday tomorrow so all is well with the world. Might have a kip now.

    My cats are not vegetarian it's only Monkey who likes dried fruit, the others prefer Brazil nuts :D

    @Garry, he's staring at you!
