    When will this weather ever end? The last few weeks have confirmed - I hate the shite weather

    Work stuff then a quick run and probably drive over to the MIL’s and set up her new tv whilst ensuring she socially distances - that way I avoid her lack of joy conversation. Ideally it would wait until the weekend when I could make a bike ride out of it but current wife is too concerned I’m cycling too far from home🙄

    It is wet.
    It's not raining though.
    It looks like it might even brighten up later.

    considering a second coffee

    The quiet sunny roads will soon be a distant memory as normality and the bad English weather returns. :(

    DIY haircut last night... It's acceptable and an improvement on the curly mess that had been cultivating over the last few weeks.

    wfh today, probably a turbo session later.

    Another on the home based corporate hamster wheel. At least there's some interesting stuff to be going with.

    Strifey has given the hounds to the dogwalkers for the day (fitted their leads and lobbed the end of the lead at them) so she can crack on with her job as domestic engineer. I think Stropteen has has emerged from her pit recently so that's everyone accounted for. Onwards to coffee...

    Bare clippers, it's the only way.
    Talking of which, my two girls hair is wild. In fact, they have gone a bit free range.

    Yep wet here me too.
    Yesterday was non stop catching up on chores from creating mount for a hose reel to some painting to undoing council ditch digging activities which blocked the drain and septic tank overflow outlet. B*stards.

  • The rains stopped, ground is damp if not wet. So might be a good time to attempt an off-road ride after a few cuppa's and before the rain returns later in the day

    Afternoon, also joined the home based corporate heck. Spent the morning trying to work out why my VPN connection was censored , turns out its because Virgin don't like the port I'm using, so that was fun! Fixed, port number opened an I can now catch up on exactly sod all. Well ish theres lots of planning stuff an kit stuff on standby to fly where ever but not much if anything I can do.

    Anyway its back to normal here, as in its raining and grey, did we just have summer?

    Also, I too need to chop the mop its getting a bit long now, clippers later.

    Surprised to get a sunny and warm day. Raining tonight however, but that's fine.

    Aimless ride around the area this morning for an hour. Basked a while. Chainsaw activity for an hour or so removing old dead thing from garden. Even chucked in a short turbo and a rower session to make up for the breakfast cereal, fruit toast, lunch, ANZAC biccie, drinks and bar snacks, soup and roll, and quiche and cous cous salad.

    I live in the sticks you plonker. Septic tank. A lot of homes have septic tanks and some have 3 phase electricity.

    No septic tank here as thankfully the previous owners paid £10k to connect to the main sewer 💩

    So basically it's just the peasants who have septic tanks?

    I doubt 10k would cover the 4 miles of pipeline to the main sewerage system.
    I suppose if I got out my shovel and negotiated with 3 farmers...

    £10k was a few years ago and was from the house to the road - not far at all

    There's your answer then and no need for 4 miles of pipe - doubt anyone would notice the difference if it's all farms near you :)

    "Negotiate"

    They are of a certain breed up in this bit. This, the highest milk yielding herds in Europe. It's all that bloody rain innit!

    They sell farm assured milk which means a guaranteed price per litre and it's a good price. So, they are amongst the wealthiest of framers in Jockland and most of them drive Bee ems and Jaguars yet i've never met a breed of people that moan so much.
    The one's who don't qualify for the farm assured prices, are totally broke.
