    Headed for the tropical North West this afternoon to help junior get all her stuff home from uni for the summer. Hopefully roads won't be too rammed and I'll be ahead of the Mancs returning from Wembley later.

    Last day of child free debauchery to enjoy. Some gardening to do first or naughtiness off the menu.

    Scorchio in the garden. ÂŁ8 bottles of wine, pushing out the boat. Naked sunbather next to me, lots of nice food in the fridge, life is good. No1 son probably gutted manu 1-0 down after 13 seconds.

    Bonnie Galloway.
    As I keep saying, you really shouldn't live and die on this island without ever going to Scotland - especially the highlands.
    Galloway is indeed very bonnie but up north is stunning.

    POIDH.

    Scorchio indeed. Too hot to do much other than chill relax and enjoy. Good times indeed.

    Evening. God this weather is too beautiful! Must be a dream or we might get s shite winter.

    Long day out at Exeter Uni Open Day for daughter. Fabulous campus. I'm amazed and I'm difficult to amazed.

    Might ride tomorrow if I can drag my sorry arse outta bed in time.


    Sometimes. Maybe. Possibly.

    Nae midgies roon these pairts, so far anyroads. Though I did buy some Smidge cream, just in case, seeing as Skin So Soft failed miserably back in 2021 even though it had seen off Sith Ifrican mozzies.

    Everytime I ride up there I get eaten alive if I even think about stopping. Certainly eaten enough of the blighters. Nice countryside though.

    I recall getting a puncture once and I had to walk up and down the road replacing the inner tube whilst the midges devoured me and wriggled in my sweat.
    It was frikkin murder. Literally.
    I was told by a highlander once:

    "Ye kill yin an' a thoosan' cum te the funeral". He wasn't wrong.
