    Morning Bougainvillea

    Dull and misty.
    Somewhere out there is a drowned rat of a cat. He refused to come in.
    He came in at 4am soaking.

    Another day of nursing my back. No physio appt. till Tuesday. Pain killers plus red wine helped me sleep but I would rather be on this planet.

    Later: Giro. I cannot remember a breakaway with 21 mins on the peloton since the 80's. I doubt that was in Armirails plans to be in pink.
    Now: coffee.

    Morning, slept like a baby after a decent spin round the lanes with a mate. Bit of chilling this morning, then largely undecided. Meeting the Big Cheeses from head office who are visiting tomorrow so best iron a shirt and have a shave later on.

    Moaning,

    Bright and blue out today :)

    Got caught up with the Giro, more or less. Looks like a morning on the allotment what’s left of it and then out on the bikie thing this saffto. A fair bit of wind in the forecast but hey you can’t have everything ;)

    May knock back a cold one later too

    Pointed the paving earlier, just writing up some bits for the boss and hopefully chilling in the sun for a bit.

    Afternoon
    Nice and sunny here, managed a bike ride with bare arms and legs. Seemed rather tough today in the wind although it could have last night’s excessive amount of red wine causing the problem.
    Another giro staged watched, only 3 more bike races to catch up on.

    Got a good wee ride done, up down round about up and down again. Warm, close weather, the flying beasties were out in force. La Malouine tall ship in Palnackie's tiny wee harbour looks like her over-winter refurb about complete, sails up on both masts. She had a big new bowsprit fitted this month. I like stopping off there, at sea level if quite a long way from the actual sea.

    Just got a big bunch of fresh rhubarb from my oldie neighbour's (v v chatty) daughter, mmm mmm some stewed with Mackie's ice cream as a dessert to come.

    Plenty of garden work done this afternoon but it's prime tick season as we removed 5 of the little bast@rds from the hounds. Mrs. 666 spent a fair bit of extra time blitzing the long grass after that she was so pi$$ed off about it.

    Reminds me of the time I was nearly hung in Jamaica for piracy but managed to escape by taking the Governor’s daughter hostage, single handedly commandeering the HMS Interceptor and out-sailing the entire British Navy.

    Evening folks,
    Very slow start was enjoyed, this was followed by a bit of pottering, a trip out with the EPO that may have involved stopping at a pub. This was followed by a bit more pottering in the garage, got the old steel roadie out and pumped up the tyres, lubed the chain and gave it a quick check over. Might even wobble to work on it this week if the weather is good.
    HD has put me to shame by pointing his paving, need to do mine really. I guess it's just a question of weeding the gaps and then brushing in a dry mix of sand and cement. Sounds easy enough and should earn me some brownie points.

    Well done Seano.
    I hope you didn't leave the parrot behind.

    I also need to point my paving. I was going to blast the old sh1t out with a jet washer, to force me into doing it.

    The EPO has done that to force the issue

    For the pointers among us, I used Marshalls Symphony jointing compound.

    I was looking at Sika. Marshalls looks £££. Is Marshalls the top product?
