    Poor sungod.

    Coffee, taxi, lounge, see if we can blag the Concorde lounge.

    Have a great holiday hopkinb

    Gentle run with hounds and then off to boot camp with the current wife, still unsure why I agreed to that.

    I’ve also agreed to cook tonight, so need to get something nice from the butchers and then back to the club with the kids, but in two separate cars as older rugrats girlfriend has passed her test but is unsure of the way.

    Enjoy the holidays folks. Must remind myself what those things are at some point.

    Bit of fresh air soon to blow away the cobwebs from last night and a short bike ride may be in the offing later.

    Long story cut short:
    Inter-railling, 1988. Muggins got on the train in Innsbruck at silly a.m O'Clock, bit tired. Very friendly and accommodating Yugoslavian family moving to Austria (violin teacher, his wife and family) got in my compartment, plied me with food and apricot liquor. Swapped trains in Zurich. Fell asleep, woke up to the noise of Micheal Jackson's 'Dirty Diana' at Geneva International Airport and the sudden realisation 'oh sh1t' as I was meant to get off at Bern.

    Not a lot of snow there ^ Homer.

    Jeebus. Half term queues. T5 chaos.

    We had some BA holiday deal where we could use the fancy First check in and security, even the queues for that were miles long too. There were so many apoplectic people, who'd probably paid 10 grand for a first class ticket, and were having to queue like everyone else. Great to see the BA staff saying "tough sh!t" in as polite a way as possible.

    Anyway, lounge now. Leaving off the free booze until the plane, but enjoyed breakfast and coffee. The boy ordered kippers, scrambled eggs, pancakes and bacon, fruit, yoghurt and a bucks fizz. He has also used the shower facilities. Bang for his buck...

    Couple opposite are also getting the most out of it. They've had a bloody Mary each, 2 glasses of rose champagne each, and a glass of regular champagne each has just arrived.

    They've been sat down for 20 minutes.

    Marvellous stuff. What a puritan I am.

    Why is it you can't seem to find anything interesting on the net when you have the opportunity and when you don't, the opposite?

    Morning folks,
    Slow start is being enjoyed, need to get the coffee on soon. Off to the old dear's later to sort out a few bits and plan how things should go with the move, still dependent on the sellers agreeing to a couple of things so contingency plans need to be made.
    I might change my name to something beginning with h so I can get away too. Have a good time chaps. Actually, get the EPO trolleyed on the complimentary booze H³. Then you might get some peace and quiet for the flight. Glad the boy is making good use of it.

    Went out on the bike for the first time since early November. Did a paltry 20 minutes round the edge of Sevenoaks at a very mediocre pace but feel really good now. Was tempted to go further but took the sensible option and turned back. My leg doesn’t hurt - yet. Fingers crossed...

    So you got out of the ManUpCave then? 😉

    Got a v windy ride in, mix 'n' match of gravel + mud and tarmac cyclepaths, inc the section where I got glassed a few weeks ago. Was very watchful for glass on ground and jeez there was loads of it, was like some scrote had been spreading broken glass coz cyclists innit. Reported to council, get a sweeper along there.

    Got back at 2.10 perfect timing for start of the Wuggah. Which didn't go well. Ho hum, at least we beat Ingerlaaannnd.

    Looked to be the player's attitude as well.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

  • Room views, early night tonight. The amateurs have borrowed their gear and we’ve watched France beat Ireland at rugby in a nice noisy bar. A shame but we did get some funny looks booing the reptilian turds.

    Nice one, I know exactly where you are - know Tignes pretty well. Very handy for getting the early lift up the mountain.

    4.5 hours of digging. Tree roots, lots of old bottles, brick, rubble and anything that stopped the spade going down.
    Just sunk 2 x 50ml Absolut and now sitting with a very large Baileys whilst the alcofrol eases the aches and pains.
    Feels like I have done 10 rounds with Joshua wotsisname.

    Just watched Marcus Eder's 'Ultimate run' again. Dream time.
