    Morning

    Sunny here, but suspect it will be chilly when I venture out. Rained a lot overnight, and off for an MTB race shortly.

    Hopefully doing nothing this afternoon, feeling rough as it is.

    Pah, it started raining 5 hours earlier than forecast so I'm moving onto garage sorting out duties shortly as there's ferk all else to do just now. Exercise has also been put on hold as my leg doesn't seem to have liked yesterdays communting session for some reason.

    Afternoon folks,
    Traditional slow start was enjoyed. Pottered about a bit before starting on the Mini water pump when the lad got up. He was called away to help his sister with physics revision, utterly beyond me nowadays even though I did the A level. Wasn’t too upset when it started raining as it gave me an excuse to stop for a cup of tea. Time it stopped now so I can crack on but I may also resort to garage sorting.

    Afternoon
    Out on the bike earlier plagued by greenfly again so not very nice. Mooched round the shops in next town tried a couple of suits on but as usually when they are a bargain they never fit. Also tried to find a hat that fits.However it seems like I’ve got a small head. :oops:
    Later will be meal out.

    As this happened in Wales, are you sure it wasn't his wife?

    Me done a couple of silly jobs and tiling me.

    On Thursday I did 25 tiles in 4 hours.
    Today I did 24 tiles in 6 hours. Although, it was an alcove at the end of the bath which required all manner of pieces.
    Now i'm passed the very tricky bit, the pace might pick up but an accountant would estimate 5 days @ 8 hours per day. However, a builder might come to look at it next month maybe, a plasterer would say 2 days and it would cost megabucks and a sparky would simply say that he 'wouldn't put his name to it' and ply you with some lack of insulation bollox information. Plumbers. like leaks, are an unknown quantity.
    Personally, I reckon 32 more hours.

    Laters.

    No - seriously bud. A pig. Both bambino and I really couldn't fathom it.

    A pig on a dog lead. Who'd a thunk it?

    I reckon if Richard was there it would have blown his mind. Bet he doesn't get that sort of thing in where he lives in Luton.
