    Not sure that throwing a kid out through a high window is likely to help in an interview ... :P

    Yep!

    Hopefully people will think I'm a little less mad if I have a job to go to up there!

    Been doing our bit to help The Trentham Monkey Forest and Twycross Zoo survive . Had a great time , especially at the monkey forest :monkey: .
    Abandoned plans to eat out in Twycross zoo though , finding 2 smallish take-out portions of fish and chips would knock us back £18.50 and an extra 6 quid for a couple of cuppas.
    Back to taking our own picnics next time!

    I saw this character hanging around at the side of the Isabel Trail.

    Initially, I did wonder if she might be injured, as she made no effort at all to maintain a distance from me.

    Further investigation seemed to reveal that she was really just remarkably confident.

    During our discussions, she noticed a suitable worm had appeared from under her apple, and she sauntered across to deal with it.

    That may have been the plan, to appear unconcerned, lulling the worm into a sense of false security.

    I have a storage unit up by the university and popped by it the other day. It seems we have a pirate radio station broadcasting within Radio 2’s frequency up that way. Very brazen, what with the Police Station being located up there. Unsure what style of music it was, I know it wasn’t country music.

    I just had a hunt around for that, but failed to find any reception here.

    However, it does mean that you are in very serious trouble - you caused me to listen to several seconds of Jeremy Vine.

    There will be severe retribution.


    Fifty five years ago, there was a short sketch in Round the Horne.

    Phone rings.
    "Hello, BBC."
    "Ah, would you be Jimmy Young?"
    "Certainly not! Would you?"
    "No. Not for a million pounds!"
    Click...

    And here we are, with it still going on...

    If you were stuck in queue on the A41 at about 4.30 today just before Whitchurch then I can only apologise. The fuel pump decided to no longer pump fuel. Much attempted bodgery wouldn't fix the bugger. Just before ringing Britannia, I decided to give it a blow with a hammer and it sprang back into life.

    I need a drink.

    Gurly and her fiance are having a posh (read large) lunch in Manchester today. Stopping with us tonight and have requested tinned beans with sausages in, on toast for tea.
    Seems it's not just me.

    Ooooh I love them but haven't had them for years. Beans on toast is my favourite meal, but those little sausages make it , yum yum yum ! Might add some of those to my bag of supplies for son when we go down to stay at his tonight .

    Afternoon out planned in Worcester for me & hubby , followed by a Pie & Mash meal booked for the 3 of us in a good Real Ale Pub tonight. Leaving son to plan the rest of the night for us . Should be a nice ending to the fortnights holiday :)

    There might be too much fly tipping going on for the police to be concerned about a pirate radio station.

    I doubt the police would be concerned about either.

    Up early this morning to take the fuel pump off the car and strip it down, as I could do with running the car reliably over the course of the weekend. Everything seemed to be working as it should so just gave it all a thorough clean up before putting it back.

    Sun's out, tide going out so off for a walk on the beach in an hour or so. Grass to cut first though.

    On a pleasant riverside walk along the river Severn this afternoon including a nice lunch at a riverside pub at Highley.
