    Longish walk with hounds, rest legs, work stuff then into the van and over to Bala.

    Open cider then try and work out how to put up the awning, etc. Drink more cider

    ^ What is that?

    If I go down to the woods today, I might have a big surprise. Doing a volunteer session for a local naturist nature trust, first one after putting my name down months ago but due to covid restrictions.... Should be enjoyable, lovely area, one I sometimes traverse on the graveller. General tidying, log handling, splitting etc. After which contributions to the community, beers and bits will beckon.

    I just threw it into the air. Have to time it right though so it lands the right way up.

    Day off today and all next week, which is set fair. Ride, little bit of finishing off work, lunch at the pub with Mrs H³, laze.

    Half day today, so a morning of work avoidance is already in full swing. Chores, unhealthy grub then off to Boxhill to watch Elbow fall off his bike.

    Ciao

    gym gymmed, gossip gossiped, now just heading to have a shower.

    need to go and do a couple of errands for work then back into the gym as nothing else to do.

    bambina has her first gcse today so nervously anticipating that - vicarious butterflies....

    Take pics please.
    [How will we know if they are the right way up if Elbow's the wrong way up and the 'add image' has worked or not worked or Elbow salvaged it?! I'm a bit mixed up.]

    Yesterday's ride in short sleeves and shorts for the first time this year will suffice 'cos it's pouring today and no wind which means it will stick around.

    Pernickety, demanding, fussy OCD tenant handed in notice. Yay! Phew. Will have coffee and cake to celebrate.

    Just to let you know I’m not talking to you, again! Due to your treatment of the MF’s, solidarity and all that.

    First day day in shorts yesterday. Back in long trousers today 😕

    You should go round and be even more OCD on him before returning deposit

    Got a bit of work to do.

    Went to see a house yesterday - very nice but in the 'Bermuda Triangle' for transport where its about 4 miles from any train station which might be a bit of a pain in winter.
    Mrs. 666 has managed to blag a viewing this afternoon of another house we like the look of which is a bit closer to transport and stuff but I can't make it due to meetings. I've said I will trust her judgment: should I be worried?

    Onwards to tea and French litigation...

    Funny. We (the tax payer) are paying them (the MF's) to do bugger all day and use up massive stocks of Hello Kitty plasters.
    I presume you pay tax (you're not bright enough or haven't got the right contacts for proper tax avoidance) and you're also happy to pay the MF's for luxury holidays in Italy (in a house with fantastic views) as well as having 63 bicycles*?!

    *I think there are only 2 that are actually rideable, and 23 have ended up over the fence and on fire but that just underlines that waste of money.

    You see, WE are his their employer(s?) and WE expect more constructive use of our money.

    Like: Posting pics of Norks, upside down crudders, excellent cuisine (not like those dodgy set of fake pics posted yesterday) and military girls in Lab coats.

    Plus: He never gives us the location of those dogging car parks he frequents. Oh no; he them keeps those cards very close to his their chests.

    Fine, if you're hoodwinked by all this cr@p and the flagrant waste of deep rims, Hello kitty plasters and Paracetamol.
    Fine, if you're happy that x percent of your income tax is going directly into his their Cayman island account(s), you silly blinkered spud muncher.
    Fine, if you're happy that he's thems been simultaneously paid by the Italian Tourist board.
    I mean, I wouldn't have minded but they cut stage 16 short.

    You're only sucking up 'cos you want a cheap holiday in Italy.

    Two separate issues dhl - the French litigation is far easier.
