    Up in the pitch black again and managded to avoid setting of the hound alarm. Luckily it had stopped raining for when I hiked to the station.

    Got a long call with the Kingdom of Far Far Away this morning which should be quite tedious. But on the plus side have beer and pub grub arranged with a mate after work.

    Morning concentré de moule à gaufres

    Nippy, clear(ish). Less wind.

    Not much on the cards today
    certainly no calls from far away
    no rides over barren rocks
    no itinerant tides to quell
    summer; long gone
    I shall not dwell
    the morro' i'll sing
    'one day closer to spring'.

    No wine tonight, need sleep.
    Maybe a beer though...

    2 hours spent yesterday evening re-learning algebra to help child with homework. What’s the point of algebra!

    Deffo. It’s high time he took up extreme sports likely to cause injury, splashed the cash on cars, bikes, mobile homes and started drinking more.

    Struggling on the last question, older sibling comes along, takes a snap of the question with a maths app on his phone, instant answer! No wonder his doing well with maths at school.

    Kidz eh. Congrats to T.

    An admin type day, it's showery wet outside. Got the indoor trainer back up and running after that stupid rip the power connector to pieces episode so a sesh beckons later.

    Now got my leccy export tariff working so don't have to watch out for fully charged batteries so switch on a fan heater / immersion / whatevs rather than giving free energy to the grid. Next is to learn how to program the system to export at peak hours. Smart tech, not so smart human it seems...

    Afternoon folks,
    So TLW is now fifty something, the best way to express it is to claim you're a year off 50, technically correct and the implication is you're on the younger side. I don't think I can get away with that now that I'm 5 years off 50. Anyway, have a good day and I'll help with the cake eating for you.
    Usual day in the orifice for me, trying to get my Friday tasks done today as I'm up at the Classic Car Show tomorrow meeting a few suppliers and customers.
    I once tried to help the female child with some maths, I gave up and ran away.

    That's nothing, I'm 17 years off 40 :)

    Afternoon
    Early start today as we had meeting at the hospital with the social worker in regard to the MiL. Who has plateaued in regard to her health so the hospital no longer want to provide end of life care as she might last months rather than days.
    So they want to discharge her in to a care home which would be self funding or send her home with care which she would have to pay for. So things are a bit sh!t at the moment. Mrs W then went of to work as she feels she needs be there, as the boss is being very supportive to the extent of offering to pay for MiL’s care😳
    I showed my support by going for a bike ride.😉

    That’s what you get for driving 20 miles to water his garden when he’s on holiday.
    Mind it was during works time and on fuel paid for by the company.🤣

    Seano is the whippersnapper I think, and Webboo is the granddaddy. Everyone else somewhere in between. There was yer man who shouted at trees, he was young.

    HD is surprisingly young (for a BBer) I think we’re similarly aged.

    You're only as old as the woman you feel. As the saying goes.

  • Is 47 young? It's too young to have two grand kids...

    If you constantly hang out with older people you’ll be forever a whippersnapper. Lack of grandkids makes me youngest regular by default.
