    Still not had a mince pie, but lots of ale so I’m happy. Last nights drinks with friends was fun, think I’m seeing a lot of them later just in a different location.

    First is an ‘easy run with hill repeats’ according to the plan - doesn’t sound easy after 4 hrs Kip

    Work stuff for half a day then walk the hounds and lunch out with the rugrats then over to a pals

    My broadband is back on 😊 so I can pootle about on things like this forum. But for how long before it fails again? 😒 Trawling internet via mobile data on a PAYG SIM ain't attractive, even though prob cost me less yesterday than opening another bottle of beer. Perspective innit.

    Claggy out, with heavy rain a-comin'. Got some outdoor tasks to get done so had better get arris in gear soon. 100% pure Colombian first though.

    PAYG SIM 'Loon?!

    Been with EE a while now and can't fault them. SIMS for me and wifey woman @ £8 each.

    A little bit grey this morning and a little bit drizzly.

    O2. 3p/min, 2p/text, 1p/Mb. Which is fine as I use my cheapo android phone as a phone with few out calls made, a GPS, to tell the time, etc, while outside in the wild else is on wifi. Top up averages at £10 per annum. I ain't in the O2 Platinum Club.

    Fair enough.

  • Morning of serious effort to clean the house up a bit... was looking a little untidy, and the threat of imminent visitors meant it needed a sprucing. All done, including my back it seems.

    Nipped into hardware store this arvo to pick up some supplies for DIY jobs to be done over the next few days, plus filled the mower fuel drums for the next round of Man/Machine Vs Wild.

    'Noon

    Was sunny this morning so headed out and of course I found the cloud and lurk which I brought back with me. Meh.
    Had fun walking through a swamp up to the top of the mountain, glad I brought wellies :smiley:

    Just been down to Edwyn's Pop Up Maison de Charcuterie for some pigs in blankets.

    He's whacked up 2x 12x12 tents he got from Scottish George at the No Window and a load of rickety tables from Paul the Jehovah's place so it looks v v stable in Bethlehem but I think that's more through the fortuity of neckiness and not worrying about food and health regs rather than good planning tbh.

    Yo dudes, day of jobs and job avoidance. Have had a couple of glasses of fizzy which should numb the pain of wrapping presents, later. Hope everyone is well and has a good couple of days. Might try and convince GTI he needs to ride on sunday.

    Evening folks,
    Busy start in the orifice this morning, managed to wobble in at least. Done a few bits and pieces at home this afternoon, had the old boy from over the road in for a drink earlier and now unwinding.
    Tomorrow may have gone pear shaped as the test results haven't come back for the Italian contingent so other sister says she can't come. What a palaver. Christmas with the old dear may be postponed.
    I'm hoping to unwind a little over the next 10 days but family may put the kybosh on that 🙄
    Have a good one folks

    So long as it’s not soaking wet and we can go early doors, should be fine.

    Been a busy day. Popped out earlier, presents wrapped, hoovered/cleaned, made dinner, put the turkey in the oven so that’ll be ready. Off to baste it in 10 minutes or so then relaxing. Currently re-watching the expanse. Bloody brilliant programme.

    Jobs done, supplies procured, now making inroads into some plonk and watching a spot of Red Dwarf.

    Fizzy plonk is chilling in the fridge ready for tomorrow.
