Crap lyrics

Posted: Yesterday at 16:39

At the risk of being removed from PhilPub's Christmas card list, the start of Suppers Ready is a bit, erm, mundane.

Walking across the sitting-room, I turn the television off.
Sitting beside you, I look into your eyes.
As the sound of motor cars fades in the night time,
I swear I saw your face change, it didn't seem quite right.

Top decorating Dave.  I misread your update yesterday evening and ended up picturing you plus pint gently sliding down the bar to the floor.

Fingers crossed that the Hopelet is better today.

Morning Meldy.

Hurrah in the general direction of Mouse in light of the good news.

Seren, it will be interesting to see how your train sleeping goes.  I've been on several European sleepers and haven't had the greatest nights kip.

In other news my nose appears to be imitating a leaky tap.  Time for some nasal spray I think.


Compression running socks advice

I'm the happy owner of a pair of the x-socks accumulator and also have several calf guards.

Oooh a lesser spotted TMW- hello.

A friend of mine was followed for the best part of a day when walking along the great wall of China by an itinerant guide book seller (this was a few years back).  Guide book seller stopped his following after my friend had bought said guide book.

I see "we" now have mascots for Rio http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/30176137 which seems to continue the trend of 'quirky'.  I wonder if the IOC has guidelines on how to design a mascot.

It's nearly home time- hurrah.  It looks like I am out on a route recce tomorrow, so no lie in for me.

Hope- fingers crossed for you on continued rehab on the calf.

It normally does Seren, but the exceptional snow in the US seems to be a combination of very cold winds and warm great lakes- so if the weather does its usual West to East I guess we'll get the cold without the snowstorms.

Debbo- proper studded tyres, just chunky tread or something else entirely?

Morning all,

hope you have a quieter decorating day today Mrs F- I see from other sources THO's tea brewing skills have been maxed out.

I notice that New York state seems to have been deluged with snow, hopefully Debbo has not been snowed in, but I guess we might be in for much the same when that particular weather front hits us in a couple of weeks.

Are you channeling Hancock Dave?  The first of the lost shows showed up in my BBC feed a couple of weeks back http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04ly3xv.  Quite accurate impersonations apart from the Sid James-a-like who was no where near close.

Hope you're feeling better soon Seren.
