    'ning

    it's a dirty job but someone's got to do it

    air feels clammy, long cloudy ride, cafes, followed by wtdf

    who knows what wonders the afternoon will bring, at minimum toast and pâté

    Morning. Getting ready to take eldest to TKD competition near Brum along with a couple of his team mates, going to be a long day. Hopefully still have the wheels on the car when it finishes. Enjoy your Sunday.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    May have drank a lot last night, now need to hurry up as I'm cycling over to the old place to pick up a toll tag for the froggy side and I'm meant to be meeting a pal soon

    After a few hours peddling it's over to the local hill climb where some family are competing

    Warm and humid here so just been to let the hound loose in the park. No need to take a ball as usually manages to acquire or borrow one. Will get a few jobs done then may watch a bit of the tennis.

    Peace reigns for now.

    windyclammy ride out to northfleet and back

    went past a blood splattered doorway in greenwich, police around, yet another robbery by scum on mopeds, armed with gun and knives, this time they killed someone, must be awful for the victim's family

    London: what a lovely place to live. I see they have charged that idiot with the acid.

    Toots exercised and fed and watered. Feet up scoffing an Apple turnover.

    Cheers Seanoconn, however junior oxo is now grown up now as he won his first Gold in adult sparring even though theoretically still a junior. Onwards and upwards. Mini oxo I suppose has to be promoted to junior oxo. Losing mini / junior oxo tomorrow as he goes away to France with school. Peace at last.

    Aaah but can he polish a car and sand the Teak decking? Can he catch fly's with chopsticks? and has he got a peroxide blonde fancy girl with an 80's perm?

    Defo no to all except perhaps the last several of the other competitors mums thought he was awfully brave going up against big nasty adults. Not letting him near my car not after his last cleaning attempt at about age 4 with a sponge dropped into the dirt more times than i care to remember.

    Funny that. Same as my two. We cleaned the newer old car together today (rather than the new old car, for obvious reasons) and it was the same but it didn't matter, it's on sale at a breakers yard auction site so who cares.
