    Long walk with hounds whilst it’s cool, WFH without the catering division again 😳

    Later is pick up the love bus after it’s service and then a hilly run. Will try and fail to avoid ale afterwards I imagine.

    Cloudy, breezy and muggy funny weather.

    It's like tumbleweed town in here.

    You didn't have a spare £30k+ for a Sportline TLW?
    That would be very appealing.

    at the practice I go to all the male dentists are sickeningly good looking, slim, very very trendy. too short trousers, loafers, you know the sort.

    all the females are ridiculously beautiful. ridiculously gorgeous.

    its like walking into a model show.

    then broken old man here with a hurty tooth and a home made haircut staggers in with a gimpy leg because he fell off his skateboard.

    Yup, I'm outta my league here.

    So wife had an echocardiogram today to start looking at why her heart rate is going all over the place (on top of the brain lesions, that they're now saying possibly isn't MS - at least not yet). In the echo, they say she has a minor pericardial effusion fluid around the heart. It wasn't there in February when she last had a scan.

    So basically no one knows what the [email protected]#k is going on. Blurred vision, saturated colour vision, brain fog, brain lesions, fluid round the heart and high bilirubin levels.

    There doesn't appear to be anything that consultant neurologists, cardiologists, ophthalmologists can diagnose that explains these symptoms. We're still waiting on seeing an audiologist in the belief that some of her brain fog and dizziness issues are down to some sort of inner ear thing.

    Oh yeah, I forgot.

    Though, 2 weeks would do and I will pay for the flights and we will tidy up after ourselves and we will leave a good bottle of plonk as a tq and cover any expenses incurred.
    I could also use my DIY skills and sort any niggles.

    Yeah, they arrived, thanks for the stack of Euros and the address of the local bordello. That's above and beyond - appreciate it.

    I'll flick a duster about before we leave, put the empties in the recycling, or at least catapult them into next door's grounds.

    Grazie mille.

    In office again, after a nice warmish pedal. Free food was on offer so couldn't resist. May even have a sneaky beer after work to fuel the ride home.

    Managed to get all the forms and docs into the solicitors last night which was a bit of a relief, over to them for now.

    Bleepin' phone scammers. Pixx right off you auto a-hole bots. Getting calls every other day from fake usually mobile prefix numbers. Nobody on the other end to swear at. Though a few weeks back one actual caller purported to be from Carphone Warehouse offering 'deals' on iPhones. Aye right. That one got an earful.

    Feeling tired today. Pottering about fettling bits and potting up things etc. Must be getting old.

    What you don't realise is that one of the MFs runs a chain of bordellos (until the local mafia find out anyway) so you're just giving him the euros back.

    always a pleasure to help - don't worry about tidying up or anything, as its you i don't mind. anyone else, yup, but you: don't worry about.

    i'll leave the key to the cantina with the special wine stocks in it on the kitchen table (upstairs kitchen, not downstairs kitchen,)

    I just never answer the phone. mine actually says "suspected spam" quite a lot which helps, but if it's a number I don't have stored with a name, I ignore it. If it's a person with something important to say, they'll leave a message, and if it's not, they won't.
