Podds - I always wonder just how many innocent people are in prison and how many of the guilty are set free. How terrible for his family.

(((((for all our oldies))))

OH started talking again last night - always a sign of recovery. She even managed a little food. Having sprayed myself down with industrial detergent on a regular basis I'm still feeling fine. How long do I need to continue cleaning before it's safe to get OH out of quarantine!?

Off to Londinium for a meeting today. Looking forward to the train journey - what a rare treat!

Happy windy Wednesday

(((((for them what need them)))))

Yums - so sorry to hear about your bikes - what a royal pain in the arris - hope you get them back, or at least that the police and failing that, Karma catches up with the toe rags .

Podds - as Chuggs said - your bike ride was epic! Some days though it is more of a Waterworld than a Gone With he Wind.

Spence - woooooo hooooo on the PB. Were many swear words harmed in the making of it?

The 'to do' with FC was around doing 2 things she knows she shouldn't, being caught out big time and still lying, then blaming everyone but herself, even with a number of get outs when confronted.  Not angry angry - more why do teenagers lie when they know you know and they know it will only make things worse??!!! We had a day of sullenness, some crying and some negotiation of consequences - back to 'normal' now. 

Well normal apart from the fact that I was in Devon yesterday - 5 hours from home when I received a text from OH. Methinks the Novo virus is alive and well in our house. OH is, in her words, 'dying' and I am trying not to touch anything. 

Happy, really, is it only Tuesday? This is going to be a long week....

We are having a 'we're not angry we're disappointed' day. When really we are bit angry but it's not going to get anyone anywhere.

However, earlier OH and I did manage to go out for cake. The cake won. Not a sentence I ever thought I would have to write.

Are there racers tomorrow? Good luck. May the wind be behind you

and not in you

If it's any consolation I work in edumurcation and I'm working for the next two weeks. It's just shirkers like Spence and Pippi that let the side down whilst the likes of Podds and I who have to keep the whole thing afloat.

Grey in Godalming


Had a text from OH. Apparently there was a baby blackbird spread across the front room this morning - Ah the joys of spring.

Hope the sherry has been kind to you this morning Daffers

Happy Thursday one and all

Evening all

((((((Mr Podds)))) ouch!!

((((The Chuggy family and friends)))))

I have been in Shakespeareland for a meeting, I am now near Basingstoke and I shall end up in Godalming for a day on Thursday. Someone was asking about less travel with this job - I always knew it would have travel, just to different places than for the past 4 years - but the difference is more money and less responsibility - two out of three aint bad!

Blur of a kitten caught her first bird of the season - some little finch - sadly there was no rescue, just a dignified burial in a wheely bin. We also had a wounded collared dove out the front but no-one was claiming responsibility on that one - vet put it out of its misery.

Happy Springy Tuesday

I thought XB had run a marathon in 23 minutes - now that is good going!

Hoorah for PBers, runners, riders, carrot fairies and the like

Loving the sock of shame

(((((Sluggie's MIL and the Chuggy's day tomorrow))))

(((lurgified and recovering)))

After a busy old week we had quite a nice weekend - decent weather always makes things cheery. We managed a bike ride to a cafe, FC cooked us a Turkish meal and we bought a jolly new tent ready for the rain in July. Now I am working in my new 'office' - the back of the garage. Hope OH doesn't forget and go out locking me out!

Happy new week full of sparkle and promise

Today I am mainly in Somerset.

((((((Sluggie))))) hopefully it was just a moment

I always remember on teaching practice a girl telling me how she had just tried to chop somene's fingers off with a machette in the loos. I just laughed and let her go . I thought she was joking. Two minutes later a large team of people arrived looking for her. Those were the days!

I'd try a bit of pasta with the pasta sauce Podds - makes for more of a filling meal.

Congrats on the bonus Yums - you can never have too many checked shirts or comfy shoes


((((all other poorly, lurgified or stressed WAISTers))))

I managed a drive through Dartmoor yesterday afternoon and a stop off for a brisk walk up a steep bit. I love Dartmoor.

Happy Wenesday - hope the fog clears and brings you a cheery day

I am in Silverton - it's like Silverstone, only much smaller and no racetrack. Tomorrow I am off to Crediton and Tavistock regions.


Hello Chuggy - sounds like you're keeping busy and great news on the tennis ball vending machine.

I'm off to read my book
