Morning. Wafting back home in a big black Merc. Back to normal life, the dog will be pleased to see me I guess. Right, who's up for a beer? Week after half term?

    Why is it on a school day you can't wake the kids up but on a Saturday they're wide awake at 6am? :roll:

    Morning, feeling a tad ruff following last night's beer binge so no following yummy mummies at parkrun. Riding shotgun whilst eldest drives himself to training shortly. Bike fettling later ready for tomorrow's ride.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Round your gaff Seano. Get the missus to stick on some pierogi, dig out the good vodka, I'll bring some tins of Perła.

    Now SSS and on with the TDV. TDV is at the doctors because her eye has exploded or something so I may even get a cup of coffee in the peace and quiet for 20 minutes................

    I would recommend Borscht and croquettes for a starter, beetroot soup with stuffed, fried, rolled pancakes, preferably meat.
    Any guests send wifey into a week long tidying and cleaning frenzied meltdown, it's just not worth the aggro from my point of view. But I am house trained if any other wifies have a more relaxed approach to guests.

    Morning, first actual peddle in about three weeks so legs are none to pleased, slurping a flat white loudly before a gentle peddle home to do sod all. Bliss!

    Giovanni from Abergavenni has obviously been home to sort out some "business" if you know what I mean and come back with supplies. Gladys at the post office will ne most happy.

    Neighbours party was quite good, though the amount of rum they put in the monitors left me feeling a bit groggy when the hound woke us up needing a dump this morning. Now supping coffee and relaxing while Strifey knocks up some lunch: may need to go for a run later to blow away the cobwebs.

    @ Hoppy - will check diary as I have a few things on the week after half term.
    Whippet
    Bruiser

    You two are in various degrees of disrepair. Is that why you use copious quantities of super glue?

    This is for you. There are variousdifferent viscosities of cyanoacrylate. High, medium and low. With different setting times from roughly 1 min to the very over priced instant stuff you get in your local DIY/Corner shop.
    So if you were to invest in the slow set stuff, the incident with the glue on the tongue would have allowed time to react to the problem and household detergent is pretty good but it tastes foul.
    However, the slow set is not handy for trying to glue the wife back together.

    I have rum. Mount Gay Black Barrel rum from duty free on the way home. Rum is nice with just a tiny squeeze of lime juice. A single ice cube, but it's important that the spirit is at freezer temperature, so as to minimise dilution.

    It's important to point out that the last couple of days in Marrakech were dry, and so I'm rehydrating. Mrs H3 booked a v good Moroccan restaurant on Weds, which happened to be booze free. After that I couldn't be @rsed. A bottle of fizzy water suits Moroccan food anyway. Lovely place Marrakech though, only 3 hours away, so same as Greece, but very definitely not Europe. We will go back.

    Where's V68 today? I don't think Kingston has exploded.

    Well done Mrs S. Ride tomorrow will be long to cancel out the orangettes? Is that basically posh chocolate orange?
  • pinnopinno Posts: 39,158
    I think there is a niche market for Chocolate Pineapplettes (of 1).

    Just back from some friends, couldn't get into the local for dinner - so the landlord came round and cooked for us

    Haven't had the bill, think it maybe rather large

    they are made by some of the finest chocolatiers, a bit too sweet though, orange peel works better

    I'm alive, I think. Busy day yesterday, took my mate to look at a car for his son. Bought it but I wasn't that happy with the deal. Time was an issue which is not a good thing when trying to haggle. Got a bit of a deal on the end though. Did you mention beer? Trust you had a good time.

    infinitely better, cut orange peel in strips, boil in sugar, coat in dark choc

    Infinitely better to have average wine and great company than great wine and average company.

    I did is the answer to both questions!
    I suggested week after half term, Stevo said he would let me know as he has stuff on. Seano said his attendance was compulsory. I'm free most Thursdays.
