    Morning
    Todays view is Stornoway Harbour. Suns out for the moment, whether we get a repeat of yesterdays biblical rains who knows. Later is Peat and Diesel.

    I hope for an heroic ride from my favourite goat-wrangling Frenchman. I think he was warming up yesterday.

    Afternoon folks,
    It's a Friday and I'm in the orifice dealing with mind blowing levels of stupid. Managed a dry wobble in at least, the wobble back looks like being rather moist if the forecast is accurate. Definitely raining out there now and I need to go in search of lunch.

    I was awake by then, probably hadn't quite made it out the door.

    Likewise, no work today no posting until suitably late. Unfortunately some of has involved going to the dentist which has made my wallet hurt. In town grabbing some lunch n supplies and will do some garden stuff later if the rain stays away.

    Liquid lunch as a result of dental work?

    Not sure I count a pot of tea with a full English as a liquid lunch :) It was one of those 'don't chew on that side for an hour while it sets' type of fillings.

    Ooh, scene of my childhood hols. Twywn x 2, Barmouth, Aberystwyth, Harlech. I have a high tolerance for rainy, hilly walks as a result.

    Evenin', catching up on the stage. My breakaway pick seems to have not broken away.

    Couple days of showing Ingerlish friends round scenics hills coasts and bars, good views, drinks, foods and bantz. If 'kin wet this evening.

    #1 daughter somewhere in deepest darkest M6-land, will get here, eventually. Learning times, Friday traffics.

    And stop wibbling Carlton.

    Pinno's DW's have probably been off for a couple of weeks already, but I think they go back mid-August in Scotland.

    Mini has been off a week, and has been at rowing camp. She likes it, I hoped she would. I reckon she'll be decent, unless she stops growing now, only a bit taller than her mum, who is a shortarse.

    We're off on hols for a week next Wednesday, which was the latest we could go and still save a few quid due to being before the rush.

    This is correct. We have beaten the English and Welsh break up by a week I think which hopefully means places and roads aren't too busy but venues will be open.
    Need better weather. Gopping drive down by the looks of it.
    We'll be a stone's throw from where my Grandfather was born.
    Won't be booking Beans into the hotel again after woman owner was quite adamant that I couldn't drop him off early as we had a long drive. Quite rude. F*ck her.

    Tea and scons/scones* is it @seanoconn ?

    It's got to be scon's or the joke doesn't work.

    School breaks up midday Tuesday so wife and I off to Southern Spain at sparrow's fart on Wednesday. Slightly apprehensive to see we'll arrive just in time to enjoy a midday temp of 39c :o
