Woke up with good intentions of a bracing early morning walk, making bakewell tortes, clearing out the loft.
Fell back asleep after wife got (noisily) up for work, got fucking soaked with the dog at lunchtime and have sat drinking coffee and eating battenburg in front of the fire since.
Feel slightly guilty, but will just tell Emma the loft has been cleaned. She’ll never bloody know anyhoo.
Done that loads of times. Well, not telling your Mrs coz that’d be weird
Carrying on from yesterday. Took the girls and a bunch of my eldest daughter’s friends to the Panic Rooms, loads of screaming and hysterical girls back here for pizzas and cake. Now hiding in my pit chilling with a beer
All because my eldest became a teenager this weekend
Fuck! Now it starts mate
Tell me about it. She’s already been practicing the moody, backchatting attitude for about a year. My only hope is she grows out of it ahead of schedule
Not a fucking chance Paul. You’ve got that till you snuff it; only then will you get some peace
Too many white flaggers on this forum
Had some lovely friends for tea, they were delicious.
Helped my Mrs lug a load of books for a booksale , delivered an old rotel to a friend and then admired rather a lot of lovely 70,s hi fi
