    No run this morning as very tired legs, so hounds will get a longer walk.

    Work meh and probably off in the camper

    Foggy ‘n cool this morning

    Expect this to burn off and become pleasant. WFW today, last day of the week so the chippy is on the cards. Beer and darts later. Looking forward to a ride this weekend
  • Working from home for a few hours in peace then back to work for the rest of the day.
    Apparently we're not dringing tonight as it's an early start for a morning ride.

    Morning Jets d'eau ambulants

    Slightly misty but looking good and looking promising.

    I think you need to less dringing HD.

    A bit of stuff to do and a few errands and then Porker tinkering.

    Nah, he doesn't look up to it.
    All they have to do is man the bins at the back of Waitrose.

    Morning foks,
    WFH as usual for a Friday to facilitate early pub arrival. Hoping for a quieter day as well. Lad has taken the train to work this morning, he was tired after wobbling to and from yesterday. I'm sure that has nothing to do with the fact he got home at about 11 having met his mates for a drink after work.

    We could hear the helicopters searching the park for him last night. Apparently this is the flight path taken, our house is around the red cross at the bottom.

    Is that a euphemism?

    Good sleep after yesterdays pedal and apple based refreshment. Working from cave again and hoping it doesn't get too hot in here later on. Strifey has some more flat pack assembly lined up for me so may need to be busy doing work stuff :)

    Used to live in Wandsworth and used to pass the prison regularly. I was under the impression that the only previous escape was Ronnie Biggs in 1965, but on closer investigation there was a break in 2019. They obviously like to keep them quiet when possible.

    Numpty No2 boy managed to snap his key in the front door! So my Saturday will be spent repairing the glass I broke in the front door and replacing the lock, which was admittedly dodgy but not key snapping dodgy. Grrrr. Time for brain numbing, soothing, ice cold booze.

  • Coincidentally, my lock bust yesterday too. Luckily no glass smashing required.

    Another eye check, some signs of clear vitreous gel in front of the wedge of bacterial debris right on top of the retina, the junk that's blocking the vision. A little positive sign. 🤞 And now got another appt next week with the big boy consultants up in that there Glesca, which may / may not result in a drainage extraction...

    Had couple trips over to the bigger toon today, took advantage of Wickes' reduced price offers on top up loft insulation rolls. An estate car comes in handy.

    Just done some basic arithmetic on (consumer) costs vs that quote I got from suspected chancer. Using retail material costs rather than trade, still works out like punter wants £1,200 to lay ~ 100 sq m of insulation rolls. F Off!

    DIY. It's not difficult.

    Aye. Is the plan. 77.5 sq m of 170mm top up insulation currently stashed in house. But I'm not going into that loft in these temps 😎

    Yeah - go with the beams first layer then across but don't stick your foot through the ceiling and get masked up. That stuff is 'orrible.
    Make sure there are caps over downlights.

    This would be us, thankfully the kids always leave by random doors, so there is always an open one somewhere 🙄
