Good morning.

A sunny morning and Alan D on the news just now said 'it would remain dry' but I think that can't be right. Water on the brain or something. Child 3 off on a school trip to Legoland and was quite confused at the prospect of what to wear. In the end though the prospect of all those water rides meant that waterproofs won the day and sunblock got forgotten. We shall see.

So child 1 has had his 21st, now wife 1 has her 50th and it's time to party one more time. This weekend sees a clan gathering, speeches, quizzes and assorted merriment before we all collapse in a Roman-esque, post-feast saggy heap. But then we're on holiday, so hooray for that. Around the estate the clear up continues. Streamers, bottles and cake may well be turning up for years to come like relics from a bygone age. It has certainly given the pesky foxes something to worry about; I'm hoping they may decide to go and urinate in someone else's garden.

Glad my 'sexy Larry' voice went down well. I quite enjoyed it myself really. In actual fact, that bit on the Floaters record is quite camp so really I chose the wrong voice. Might play the whole thing today for cpomparison.

Nigel cooks quail with grapes and ginger tonight (I know) and songs please on the subject of CAMPING. As the holiday mentions really start flooding in we need to recognise the selfless heroism of all those intrepid campers who are still setting off for their hols with tent/caravan/campervan at the ready. Can be great, can be a waterlogged nightmare. Tunes please!

Have a sunkissed and warming Thursday. See you after 5.

    Has anyone seen an elephant? ;)

    Or a fully functioning 'next' button come to that?

    Happy days :)

    It's damp here in Horsforth - but the forecast for the Lake District is looking good this weekend - so I'm off to the Floating Caravan tonight. The bad news is it's likely to be a working weekend as the long-term project is entitled 'GC-of-MTTS'. The idea is we prepare the floating caravan for sea sailing. Phase one is more varnish and buy her more electronic trinkets.

    Morning one and all, are we going to let the date put a damper on it, hate to say it but its damp already, raining again here this morning.

    #123 Hi Nic, your game sounds great; definitely (in my opinion) one for the car!

    Some of the tunes played last night were knew to me, infact, I don't think I'd heard 'I can hear the grass grow' before. At least you cannot say Radio 2 is not educational.

    Happy Day to all

    Shazza

    #123 #125 I thought for a minute there you were being rude to Billie, Nic! I don't think anything has been decided yet on what game to play. I think someone will probably just go with something and others join in - that's what usually happens, anyway.

    :o)

    #123 Oh Nic - maybe others "misunderstood" too - but wouldn't admit it!

    Good morning all - yellow thing in the sky again - but for how long??

    Don't know how I will know when new blog is 'up' as it says at top of this blog but when I click on it it just brings me back here! False blog still up too - wosgoinon??

    #123 sounds like a good game NicRolastic but the trouble is timing, I think. By the time one person has posted, another three may have posted and confusion reigns as to where we are - and the 3 minute delay thingy doesn't help either!
