Yeah, but substitute Concorde with an elderly Alfa on its very last legs, which made it all somewhat stressful.

When you said you'd bought that Alfa, I was gonna say something, but didn't.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

I always knew it was a daft piece of crap but a) it’s never actually let us down once and b) I’ve enjoyed driving it more than anything I’ve ever owned (at times).

About to watch the Pet Shop Boys from the orchestra standing pit at the Royal Opera House. Insanely close up and tons of room to dance. Twelve minutes to curtain up.

Took Lucas to see Bremner Square this morning, he had no idea we had a brick there and had guessed they'd cost about £500 each. Not the reaction I expected, he played it cool but there was a tear in his eye.

Very happy old man. Just slotted a fox. I suspect the one who took a hen & a cockerel last week.

Chicken murdering bastard meets expanding ammo. No fucking contest.

Took my three and a half month old Westie puppy on his first train journey up to our other office in Aylesbury today. He’s been good as gold all day and now we’re sat in the local brewpub. Nine hand pumps, carry out at £2 a pint and a wall-to-wall modern country soundtrack. Happy as fuck right now.

(Ask me again tomorrow after we try give him his first bath)

SHGW being modest about the female attention that little fella will have been drawing.

Ha. Let’s just say that if I’d appreciated the effect in that regard, I’d have got a dog 20 years ago! Slim pickings in this pub but I wouldn’t want this magical moment disturbing with too much inane conversation.

Latest cohort of students all passed B2 English, five got C1.
This is a really big deal for them, gives them access to the best universities.
C1 gets them grants to study abroad.
Sometimes my job is ace.
Comparative Phonetics combined with Generative Grammar is just the dog's bollox.
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.

I am in the process of stealing her identity seeing as you posted a picture of her results page on FB. DOB - confirmed, full name - confirmed, just a few other bits and bats and I will have a new motor :thumbl:

Aye, what an idiot. Someone’s name and DOB are really hard to find out without doing that.

Just played the best game of pass the parcel EVER.

All thanks to a failed business, a Scunthorpe auctioneer, the Royal Mail, and more than anything, to Phil and an apparently endless supply of bubble wrap.

Im off to taste my new gins.

:cheers:

Cheap? If that's cheap to you I don't earn enough :mrgreen: .

The bubble wrap had been sat in the loft since we moved, bought a 50m role of the stuff, must still be 10m of the stuff left :thumbl: .

I didn't fancy a bill for a box full of broken glass.
