    Allo allo allo, woss goin' on 'ere then?

    [Sweet FA by the looks of things].

    Shall I get that unsociable basket @seanoconn out of bed with the ding ding topic reply notification gong on his mobile? There's no way he can resist "Ooh looky, someone's mentioned me!".
    Or that once a year communter @Stevo_666 - go and pedal you closet commy.
    I'll let VN off - he's probably at the point of a nervous breakdown after a late evening flat packing.
    Hmmm... who's cage can I rattle?
    Bat man @orraloon.

    It's quite a nice morning. Just a little foggy. Forecast is good.
    Will pedal this afternoon after toots and swimming shenanigans (taxi, hair and teeth duty).

    seanoconn - gruagach craic!

    Holy fly trap Batman, that could be a move: reckon I have some old solar lights in a garage box somewhere, let one charge, hang it on a tree branch, invite the bats back to munch on whatevs. One thing that has annoyed me in the new fort is the abundance of irritating bluebottle type flies; mayhap side product of rural dairy farm world with slurry spreading.

    Think today will be more garden fettling, there is a very long list, give more hedges a #2 all over thank you sir, crack on with greenhouse base site prep ahead of rain forecast for late afternoon.

    Must be my annual outing tomorrow then :smile:

    Ecent lie in had, now hilling with hounds and a coffee just now. Will head out later then there's a spot of admin to catch up on. Btw that new series of Frozen Planet is on the box tonight and sounds like it's worth a watch.

    That’s the problem with bikeradar these days, not enough ego stroking.

    Bit busy with work and 11+ test preparation and practice with the young ‘in innit. Buggerall else has happened though. Oh, I know. I’m nursing an injury inflicted upon me by a student.

    Definitely didn’t miss that…damn it. More excitement though - was on a panel giving evidence to the STPRB the other day. Let rip about pay differentials and a lack of perceived value for us old teachers.

    Evening folks,
    Traditional slow start was enjoyed, things went downhill from there. Went looking at kitchen units with the EPO. This was followed by assembly of much MDF and fibreboard. Still, better than going to work at the moment.

    Lad at rugby training got tackled at full pelt. I was coaching on the touch line and got whacked, studs first. Bit painful. Got the interest going though!!

    So you're on a pay review board where you get to say you're underpaid and need a massive pay hike? :)

    Not exactly. Apparently they do this every year - ask schools for their point of view and then talk to the government about what their plans are before making a recommendation. Either way, need more cash!

  • Christ on a bike. I'd have that off at the knee if I was you!

    Welcome back. Hope you enjoyed your summer.

    I built some flat pack today. Took some stuff to storage before taking it south west. Must sort a van.

    That looks like something out of a rather unpleasant Sci fi movie.

    That looks like a really sore one!
    Curious about the condition of your heel too. 🤔
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.
