    All done. 45 minutes there and back. I can’t even go in one direction quicker than that during the week! The bloody heat hit me when I opened the door. Knackered already and it’s only 6.30 a.m. :cautious:

    I did a job years ago in some shoite - hole cull - de - sac.
    You could tell the sort of riff I was going to find inside, as Santa was still up on the outside. Hanging by his ankle. In August.

    (The inside of the house didn't disappoint, shall we say:sick:)

    Baby sitting! I think he’s going to be a builder. Mind you, if I hear Baby Shark one more time, he might not see his second birthday!

    Sorry to hear this STFF. Hope she is recovering by now. As for the £700 I hope you haven't paid it, or if you have then demanded it back, regardless of whether she pulls through or not. Imagine the outcry if a hospital did that to your child? Why do these professions sometimes think offering an apology and then getting someone else to sort out their mess, is good enough?

    Been up my local High Street today, great to see it all open and shops and staff making a living. Went up in the loft to stash some Christmas pressies that I had bought for Mrs Mottie and, as you do, I started looking at old photo packets. I found one where I reeled off 36 pics in one go with my motorised drive Pentax of Princess Diana when she visited a special needs school near to where I lived in Plaistow back in the mid eighties. I got so near to her, she actually shook my hand! She looked and smelled gorgeous. :) Anyway, here a few of the pics that weren’t blurred.

    Went and did the weekly shop at Sainsbury’s. Used the app but got pulled up at the checkout for a full check. They did it all again and it came out £4 cheaper - I must have scanned something twice.

    Been doing some beating with my dog out at the shoot today. Over 18,000 steps/8.3 miles and that’s not road walking, it’s boggy, muddy fields and bramble covered woods! My hips feel like they have been ground to dust.
