    Read that earlier. 50%? he'll take that as a win. More than enough to win a GE. He is patently not a harmless wally despite the carefully choreographed Schtick. Pray like Billyo for Gen Z. A popular Boomer anthem was won't get fooled again. Really? Wislon, Snatcher and Bunter :arghh: When will they ever learn? is far more appropriate. YMMV, obviously - but I'd get thee to Specsavers asap if so,

    Mr K did have his sausage roll and the dogs had a doggy ice cream each. I had never bought them one before and wasn't sure if they would like them - but they definitely did.

    That is so sad and feels really unfair.

    Vegan chicken gravy - and with garlic and thyme - saving the planet is it. If we went canibal and ate one vegan a week we could reduce our carbon footprint 100% each week - make sure they weight the same as you though or it all goes wrong, the govt will not honor their pledges and will then revert to coal powered windmills and offshore flatulence wave power.

    Good morning everyone from a very quiet dawn after the storm in the dark and dangerous north
    The wonder wheel of fish and yet more fish came in at 5.0 this am

    BBD (British Broadcasting Dummies) weather twits promised rain again yesterday - so of course, out we went - no rain - how unusual. Over the Whitby for koffy with one of my cousins in their camper. Took them into Sandsend for lunch in a nice tree lined pub garden - we get to see each other so infrequently so it was great to catch up. They are off to Northumberland today where another cousin has a pub in the fishing village of Craster. Happy days. Not sure about today. I will be removing the top box rack from my bike. Old age and uncooperative joints makes getting on and off the bike a bit of a challenge these days - so tried with top box removed - mmh! Nearly. If I remove the rack then that might work. I have expandable side panniers so still OK for traveling with clean socks an hankies.

    Art bit - was practicing some dry into wet and showing my grandson how you can blow ink off a brush - so this just emerged. Have a wonderful day if you can, commiserations to the Southgate team. Koffy time.

    We visited some new friends yesterday afternoon. After a short walk we all sat down at the table for nibbles. Stayed there for several hours, so kept on having a little bit more of this and that. There were some LC options, but not many. Real English sausages, plus smoked trout, cherry tomatoes and cucumber slices, bowl of nuts and one of chopped fruit. Then there were delicious little choux stuffed with goats cheese...And the local farm butter had to be tasted on a slice of artisan baguette. Might buy some of that butter, more expensive than supermarket off, but local. Wine too and coffee. We didn't need dinner, although I did have a chunk of cheese.
    It's raining AGAIN. Our new 1000litre tank installed late on Thursday is now overflowing. Weather site warns of possible flash floods. I dare not go into the loft to see how much water is up there, it's so stressful, when it's not possible to do anything to stop it.
    Some days staying in bed seems the best option - but there is a cat to feed.

    A mixed day - hooray for the visit with new friends but sad to read about the water coming in - hope the weather picks up for.

    5.8 this morning. No dog walk this morning as it is really raining heavily. All my food and drink for the day is packed and ready to go into the cool box. Actually, it will be lovely to relax and drink another coffee and finish reading Friday's newspaper before driving off to Norwich.

    We have an expert booked to reroof the front of the house. But earliest he could fit us in is November, so the indoor waterfall is here for a few more months.

    Lachrymose start here in Forest Heath as if it were a silent elegy for three very young men. Thoughts and prayers with them and their family plus happiness for Italians who suffered so badly with COVID in 2020. Firebreak continues but I'm back on the reservation after a carbfest yesterday. Slept like a log and resting pulse wonderful. I need to apologise to unknown trolley guiders for any judgements I may have made. It isn't for me to judge them and there (really, really) but for the Grace of God go I. A quick skim of my spreadsheet for 2015 reminds me - leaving comments re food was an inspired move. Image1 is July 16 post prandial 7.1! - came down to 4.6 PP by evening meal - comment 2. Sainsbury's cook in the bag chicken, veggies then trifle pleased MIL I weighed 100 gms trifle for myself at the table - bizarro or what? The chicken is several notches below the W.....se stock brined version imho - the -£2 doesn't compensate. I'm still awaiting a printout of full blood count before ploughing on with a menu and supplements - tedious but vital imho. The Duchess should keep the shirt for the Word Cup Derek - wonderful to hear Songbird though. Hug for the weather and stress @SlimLizzy. The family meet up sounds tickety boo @dunelm. Take care chums.

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen and all who home covid test regularly, at least the testing kits are free.

    A steam driven, sliderule and log table provoking 4.7 to calculate my insulin dosage this morning. The most reliable tool for this monumental task is tea bag reading in my Welsh mug.

    At long last the tennis and foot the ball is over, Mrs J will be returning the remote control to its storage cupboard, me and me's hope. I would like to guess the sporty fans and media will revert to their favourite past time of bashing " bumbling Boris the Beast ".
    Here in Tilehurst Towers the day is an unknown, a little bill paying is on the agenda, the big bills will have to wait, everything else is up for grabs.

    Please have a good day as much as you possibly can and this afternoons government briefing should be interesting.
