Decided to spend the day with me feet up in front of the telly/computer, drinking tea and having the odd bite to eat. Beg to report that I have managed to accomplish those tasks.

Pizzinit doon outside. HF must be due back to these parts.

Where is every contributor: have they jumped ship or had the button lip to the; locker beneath the waves?

Perhaps the invitation of a good breakfast will invigorate them.

Listening to the wind howling around around the house, Lord G, and thinking about all the apple windfalls I will have to pick up. I have no idea where my washing will be tomorrow morning, but I doubt all of it will still be pegged to the line.

That'll teach me to be a lazy toad and not fetch it in before dark.

It's been Hastings week this week, 1066 and all that. 950th anniversary of the battle with reenactments of it by folks from Germany and the Low countries of Norman descent. Not only have they re fought the battle but lived and camped as they would have back then. Hats off to 'em I say, especially as it's been p1ssing down here tonight. The close of events is an impressive firework display which we are lucky enough to view from our living room. At least the rain held off for the display.

If you're ever in the area, Hastings, Battle and Rye and the beautiful E Sussex countryside is worth a visit. (As long as it's not p1ssing down).

Raising a glass to all. Cheers.

Morning all. I can see a little bit of blue sky where the mist isn't sitting.

Dog is fed, I is fed and all is well with the world. Mrs HF isn't fed but she's a bit odd and doesn't do breakfast.
How can you not do breakfast ?Finest meal of the day.

I'm back Thursday teatime, 4mastacker, so enjoy what decent weather you can until then.

Morning folks.

The weather can best be described as 'dreek'- using a term I heard from the locals whilst I was stationed at Leuchars. Further south we say 'hoyin it doon'.

One shall remain indoors today.

I was born in Hastings... in Victoria, Australia however.

Overdid myself last night a little - so today is a day of rest, scrambled eggs, fried tomatoes, lamb's lettuce, bacon, toasted sour dough bread and coffee.

The wife, however, feels the need for exercise and so is off to ride a bike about in the wind. She just doesn't have the discipline it takes to sit in front of the telly for a day.

That's the trouble with women. No dedication to the art of idleness. Always think they should be doing something.
I bet it was a man that invented the remote control.

Must be so. Mrs. Hopper still doesn't have a clue what half the buttons mean or do, after decades of using remote controls. In her defence it must be said that half of those buttons are quite useless, indeed.

Had a power cut this afternoon. Prevented me watching about 20 minutes of the Middlesborough/Watford match...pity it wasn't for longer.

Has anyone got a spare vote or two they don't want? I entered a photo competition run by a river cruise company to provide photos for their 2017 calendar and, to my surprise, got into the final twelve. There is now another stage to select the best picture for use on the front cover and for which there is a slightly larger prize - a free cruise.

If you click on the following link you will see the final twelve, mine is the one of Stavanger.

Vote for your favourite photo in the Viking calendar competition

Any contributions will be gratefully accepted - I suspect that the winner might be the person with the largest list of contacts on Faecesbook so I'm trying various avenues to get a few more votes.

Err...what?

Glad you liked it folks.

The organisation is very good at sorting things out when things go wrong - I'm sure they can deal with an inverted vote, Quizling.

Nice try Hifly.

I went for a 30 minute bike ride to blow away some cobwebs.
