    Looks cold here too. Not sure whether to wait for any ice to melt, or just go off road where it's less of a worry. Have to go on road to get to off road stuff though :/

    Off road run for me then back to the hotel for a pig based breakfast :)

    More beach stuff then into the car and back home in time for the game

    By time I get up on a Sunday most of the ice has melted :)

    Probably won't do much of any consequence today which is not a bad thing.

    Morning folks,
    Having a day like Stevo’s by the sounds of it. Need to go and see the old dear shortly.
    Went to see a good mate yesterday as he was a little under the weather you could say, he’d had a succession of small strokes last week. Thankfully should make a good recovery but scary as hell. Serves as a reminder to enjoy life.
    Have fun out there.

    Evening, rather cold lots of frost an ice on the ride of the clubbies, made it lively, went back out again as the frost/ice meant some of the off road paths were lovely an firm. Then it suddenly goes to deep mud which wasn't as fun, still 40 miles lots of laughs so all good.

    Gritters not long gone by sprinkling mainly peoples car roofs an gardens. Think they need to adjust the angle some what. Still least my front paths no doubt covered so no slipping in the morning!

    Liar - there's no beaches in Dudley

    Crispy start was followed by swim with Tricky and Shorty. Oh, and OH.
    Then washed the car.
    Then unblocked the drain for the N/East gutter drainage.

    Some [email protected] parked his van in the ditch at the end of my drive.
    The back wheel compacted the soil and blocked the pipework that goes under my drive from the adjacent field and then under the road through the shouty man across the road's garden.

    The next time is rains, it shall be fun.

    Now the law is that I cannot block or hinder a water channel or water course. So that means it's down to me to clear it because if I don't, the field on that side won't drain properly.

    The plus side is that he didn't see me and I got his number plate.

    Suggestions on a postcard please.

    Ideally need to wait for the rain to be heavy, then a bottle of washing up liquid, or food colourant work well, unless you feel very evil then either fertiliser or weed killer.

    Also noted my track pumps gained an allergy to pumping. Suggestions on another postcard for that one

    Mine went all weird on me and it was the bit that connects onto the valve - it still pumps Schrader valves ok.
    I got a new head off ebay for £2 for the office pump, but they don't fit the home pump so Santa delivered a new pump.

    Santa won't fit down my flue's.

    Get a quote from pinno's pop up drainage specialists, request the driver's insurer's details from the ABI and send them the quote.

    Will cause some fun even if you don't get any cash.

    The office pump sounds a game gal
