    Drizzly.

    Covid vaccine jab #1 this morning.

    At some point I need to finish cleaning puke from inside of car when #1 filled his lap with vomit en route to COVID test last night which I hope he then 'passes' (or should it be fails?). Thank god it's not sunny so the stench won't be too horrific.

    Regardless of result he can't go to nursery anyway due to vomit episode so will be fending him off from home.

    Basically try to laze but actually be really busy.

    "April, come she will", goes the song. Not a couple of days before the feckin' summer solstice she shouldn't. She should feck off to just after March 2022.

    Work. Look at rain. Hurrah.

    Cats n dogs here. Apart from the courier dropping by at some time between 9 and 5 to collect my downhill bike, mainly work stuff. Fortunately not too many meetings.

    Strifey is walking the hounds, good luck to her in this weather. H3, now is possibly the time to promote domestic harmony by mentioning that point again about not needing to water the plants?

    I never did ever get the seat belt in the rear of one of my cars clean from the result of a milk fountain.

    Sunny here. Hurrah!
    Slight Northerly keeping things cooler than wanted but at least it's dry.

    Cloudier here but still nice, and a bit cooler too.
    Dunno what all the fuss is about.

    She had me putting nematodes in all the raised beds yesterday evening. Apparently they sort out slugs. They need it to be damp, so the weather has indeed saved me a job.

    Every cloud...

    July, she will fly
    And give no warning to her flight
    August, die she must
    The autumn winds blow chilly and cold
    September, I'll remember
    A love once new has now grown old

    I think it improves as you go up the M1. Today, anyway. Not usually!

    Ciao

    Day off as ee know, so drove bambini to school (45/50 mins) then as TDV is out tonight she decided it would best if I then drove her in to wprk - which is exactly the same route as I take the bambini in - so that was another 50 mins.

    Chill for a bit then weights sesh then need to pop to Edwyns to get her a wedding anniversary present for Sunday. Some new Brillo pads or some sensible socks methinks.

    Simon and Garfunkel greatest hits was my childhood. Summer holidays, driving around Ireland with one cassette in the car. We didn’t mind.

    You'll have plenty of time to enjoy the weather as there are roadworks and speed cameras for bl00dy miles up the M1.

    rode out on the currently closed road through los hervideros to see the big hole that opened up next to/under the road, looks like a layer of lava with nothing under it finally caved in, wonder how many other roads are over similar bits

    had to negotiate a few barriers to get through, no traffic on the road :smiley:

    this helpful chap is pointing out where the hole is...

    A few metres to the right and it would have been a good pothole :smile: Must go back to Lanzagrote sometime soon.

    Nearly always a better choice unless you're headed further West when you get up the other end. (M6 isn't much better then the M1 either).

    I don't remember there being steps or a ladder when we went, I had to climb back out up the pile of snow at the entrance.

    Morning folks,
    busy day of wfh but trying to be a bit more chill, really fed up but there's not a lot I can do about it so need to get into the mindset of doing what I can and not worrying about the rest. Can't do most of what I'm meant to, but that's not my fault so fuckit.
    Just had a coffee, now thinking about what to do about lunch. Might try and paddle to the shop, just need a canoe.
    That was very kind of that bloke to point out the hole in the picture SG. Is it near a beach and would it echo?

    Mine too, though not in your car, at least I don't think I was in your car. My mum had the LP's from the 60's, and we played them endlessly.
