    Morning, a relaxing Saturday for me, more than likely a bike ride, mowing the lawns, followed by a couple of drinks, it's a pity this lovely weather is going to break up over the weekend
    Have a good day

    Traditional slow start is being enjoyed. Saw the lad briefly as he went to the loo. Still half cut and rather sheepish. Gave him a stern I'll talk to you later. Can't really have that much of a go at him, it's not like I never did that. Just annoyed that he lost his phone. Not much planned for today, another cup of tea perhaps.

    Turn the bike upside down and then you can sit on a chair to do the job.

    Couldn't exert myself if I tried. Managed some basic chores and the girls are surprisingly amenable this morning. I Feel like a washed out washed thing that's been washed out. Think the week where my guts turned into a compost accelerator/liquidator has caught up on me. Perhaps I shouldn't have spent an hour on the rollers yesterday but couldn't help myself.

    Going to take the girls to the park before the heavens open.

    What's it like your way Gazza?

    Giro later, wahey.

    Laters.

    Lie in, dog walk, jobs, shops, football. That kinda sums up my days activities. Tomorrow will be lots of driving.

    Ciao

    Knee still fecked, still can't walk or bend it but TDV is tired so orders getting barked from left right and centre - it's like week one day 3 again..... still, doh walked, bins washed, laundry done, kinder schizer put away - you know the score. She's strapped off the Edwin's for some schizer.

    Currently cryocuffed up trying to not hurt. While chomping some hula hoops waiting for the next attack.

    Glorious,then muggy, then thunderstorm, then clear.

    Took kids to watch mummy run a ten k. Then took kids to a birthday party then dinner in the pub. Watched that forty thing that was on in that London.

    Lad got his phone back. Turned out one of his mates saw it on the floor and picked it up. He's a lucky boy. Still ripping the p!ss out of him of course.

    I have self diagnosed my knee issue as my body has too much power and the only way of getting rid of it is to expel it out of my knee.

    It sounds plausible enough to me.

    I went to Edwyn's apothecary earlier and he tried to persuade me to soak it in goats urine.

    Said that hs mother soaked her "bits" (if you know what I mean) in goats urine before he was born and it did wonders for her fertility.

    Theme parks. Fcuking nightmare sh!tholes. What is it with girls drawing monobrows on top of blotchy orange pancake make-up? Plus their saggy and dimpled (at age 16!!) @rses and massive gunts hanging out of miniscule denim shorts. You see all of humanity in these places. Still, the kids enjoyed it. I went on some hellish ride called Smiler. I still feel sick. I just yelled "fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuccccckkk" all the way round. Mental.

    Can't abide the places. Full of queues and people with sunburn.

    He's been up in front of the local judge twice for bottling his own pi55 and selling it off as Siencyn the goat's. Tread carefully if I were you.

    Buy some buy some buy some. That stuff will strip your bike chain clean in 10 seconds flat.

    Kids totally love it, so that makes it worthwhile. It's also "free" on these Merlin passes we have We've done nearly all of the godawful attractions in a year.

    I would rather do any number of things, but hopefully the kids will remember that we did this stuff together, because I certainly remember not doing it, if you see what I mean.

    You couldn't take a couple of tear-aways with you the next time could you?

    Put a spot of gin in it, and some ice, and you have a nice elevenses tipple.

    Who needs one of them? Just unnecessary bulk. My stomach goes straight to my rectum.
