    la famiglia has exited the building and silence has descended. blissful. no noise, no whittering, just the sound of a silently snoozing hound.this is what it must be like inside rollo's head.

    have to chainsaw a tree then catch a flight away for work for the weekend. apart fom that, not a lot.

    Yeah just a bit. 0 degrees here, scraping ice off the car, foggy on the ride to the office :roll:
    Got a report to write and that's about all for today till someone pokes me with something else to do.

    Absolutely lovely morning to ride through the streets of London and come over Southwark bridge with the sun glistening on the Thames, and to admire once again the juxtaposition of the Victorian engineering of Tower Bridge and the ultra-modern glass and steel of the City framed by an azure sky. It never gets old.

    A day of keeping the nose to the grindstone beckons. Maybe get enough done to effect an early bail, but I doubt it.

    I 'completed' the first part of my bowel screening test kit this morning.

    Worst game of poo-sticks, ever.

    Oil prospecting, camel racing, dune surfing, arrested for imbibing alcohol/impersonating Muslims/looking up Kaftan's?

    Bit of sun here. not so chilly.

    Today will be Porker, sticks, Bistro, coffee and cake.
    After baked Mediterranean Feta, I had Orange and Almond cake last week. It sort of worked.

    Must call some place daan in the midlands regarding car bits...

    Laters.

    I've been advised by someone who knows more about muscles than me not to ride my bike until I've completed this pesky runnerist thing I've got next weekend.

    And I've just bought a bum bag...

    Got the train into work this morning as I realised last night that I was absolutely knackered. Will ride next week instead.

    A weekend of normality which will be nice, hopefully. No trips up North due until end of next week and I may take the train as I've now put 2,000 miles on The Panzer in 4 weeks and I'm not sure that banks will do mortgages to pay for Super Unleaded.

    I have this unfortunate mental image involving dropping one over one side of a bridge then running over, pants akimbo, to the other side of the bridge... Thanks for that.

    Sounds easy when you read the leaflet. Less so when you're trying to apprehend an unusually large and rapidly expelled censored before it hits the water. And then they only need a tiny sample...

    Can't you have wifey standing there with a carefully orientated shovel?
    Best done in the garden next to a hole you've dug, specially for the purpose.

    When I had giardiasis, I put a "tray" fashioned from layers of bog roll on top of the water, did my business, then used the little spoon to scoop a sample into the pot. I have a high tolerance viz a viz gag reflex. I used to change my daughter's PEG.

    Even easier, go for a walk, have a poo on the path, get someone to pick it up in the bag for you.

    Okay. You asked.

    In the kit is a piece of card (postcard size), it has several layers to it, a large opening flap on one side that says "DON'T OPEN" and on the other, three smaller flaps. Behind each of these smaller flaps is a couple of cut-outs, about 1cm square.

    Also in the kit are six cardboard sticks. Each day for three days, you collect a bit of poo with a stick. How you go about this is up to you, but you can't get the poo out of the toilet bowl. You then smear a bit of poo on one of the 1cm squares behind the flap, you do this twice, using two sticks and two different bits of poo. You then seal the flap and write the date on it.

    When you have done this for three days, you send the kit off in the envelope. The recipient then checks for blood in your poo (I think). Whatever, they certainly EARN their salary! :)
