    Good morning everyone from a dull and breezy start here in the dark and dangerous north. It’s a grand day out today. At least that’s what has been promised (mentioned really but such a mention quickly turns into a promise inside my head). A drive down the coast sounds good. Possibly to Runswick Bay for a spot of lunch or perhaps Sandsend. I fancy whitebait. You know that number, the butt of jokes, that comes knocking towards the end of the 60’s - well today is the day. So, a grand day out. And this evening - the grandchildren, well the oldest two, probably at their favourite Italian - more whitebait anyone?
    Art bit - Impression of Eidfjord I think it is called. Have a wonderful day if you can. Must make some koffy.

    oh it is getting so hard to differentiate between reality and drug infused reality nowadays. Those old Etonians have ganged up with Roald Dahl’s witches and are spreading the poisons.

    Thank you for the art - splendid work. Enjoy the run out and the whitebait. Prawn cocktail and whitebait are having a moment amongst the movers and shakers. The Armish aren't keen. Blue Nun and that Mateus Rose guy seem to be MIA.

    @ianpspurs the news from Texas is heartbreaking. Sadly it looks as though the gun lobby is too strong for it ever to be sorted.

    @alf_Josiah good that your LFT was negative. It is always a huge relief to see just one line on the test.

    Hectic non-stop day yesterday. Have just caught up with the posts.
    5.7 this morning. Mr K is taking his car to pick up Archie's tablets from the vet. He usually goes on his motorbike but says he won't today as we are away to Orford next week and that I will never forgive him if something happened and we couldn't go.

    Every day in every way that man gets better and better. Pressure on the rest of us is becoming intense - inyurts for the posh boys.

    Good late afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen.
    Blood sugars were 5.8 this morning.

    Well here in Tilehurst Towers it’s been a funny old day, this Morening me, me’s and myself had things to sort out, which unfortunately meant I couldn’t be taken food shopping and banished to the in house costalotta koffy shop. Mrs J seemed happy, I don’t understand her. Ultimately the things I had to sort out didn’t get sorted.
    This afternoon I was designing and making a enlarged base for my woodworking router, this is very much work in progress and for @gennepher I will post pictures when it is finished and in use, deadlines are wonderful, I must nip down to Screwfix and purchase some M6x16 csk hd screws, now there’s an abbreviation for @ianpspurs csk hd . Yes it is technical.

    @alf_Josiah I inherited several hundred of those in a shed full of other screws and nails, about 5 miles of copper pipe, 100 hammers, assorted saws, screw drivers, chisels, planes, pipe benders, several thousand bricks, assorted cement mixers, lead flashing, miles of electrical cable and so much more. I did not inherit any talent for using them nor a desire to learn DIY. I was brilliant at digging trenches, felling trees, keeping the brickies/plasterers going and demolition - pretty good with a sledge hammer if I say so myself. Hope the project goes well.
