    Morning workers. Off out again to some dodgy wildlife park apparently with OH and not so young oxo. Weather looking good for today. Meet up with eldest lad later for family meal, must order a taxi. Enjoy your work folks.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning

    Forecast was saying an ark was needed for getting to work so I compromised and drove.
    Wasn't that bad, would've been OK on the bike.

    WFW, early dart hopefully.

    Pack toots off to activities.
    Pick up food for fussy cat.
    Order stuff.
    Engage Taiwanese defence with General Fentiman.

    Still zero rain here, and none in the foreseeable future. 10 day forecast shows nothing but sunshine, and temps to the early 30's next week.

    Wfw today, and on the train with the general public and their filthy germs for the first time in a long time.

    Out for dinner at a Portuguese place north of Soho later.

    Would love a bit of rain here. Bored with wfh again. Waiting for a new swivel chair to arrive as the old one is disintegrating - one of the arm rests just sheared off yesterday. That's about as exciting as it gets with covid.

    Junior back from Liverpool tomorrow at least, but at this rate will have to keep my distance.

    Feeling gradually better but still testing positive. Down to fuzzy head/tired feeling now.

    Successful 2nd attempt test firing of the woodburner, looks like downdraft issue with strong S/SW winds as was case earlier this week, and given the topography and location... don't want to be in a winter storm, power cut and can't get the stove to fire up... Good to get such issues id-ed early doors.

    And on goes the voyage of discovery.

    Miss HedgePiggy may have got pixxed off with all the driveway work, noise, vibrations as feeding been erratic this week whereas before she was on it every night. Please come back Spike.

    I'm sure he can get one cheaper. SW Scotland is a bit like Craggy Island as well.

    Just back from the scans, two boys. I think OH was hoping for one of each so she wasn't so outnumbered but I am continuing a 4 generation 'Morrisons only have boys' run. Nice burger at the cafe near the hospital too

    Not much on this weekend. WFH this afternoon, got a friend coming up to pick up a new car and eat steak later on. I might get out to get another deer one morning too

    Nice one Haydenm 👍
