Lovely clear night last night and the Merry Dancers were active.

An acceptable fill-in.
Scrambled eggs on crunchy brown toast for me.
Bacon and tomatoes as a side dish.

May the two-stroke engine of the leaf vacuum: start in the morning.

Morning folks.

Breakfast has been had, sarnies packed and I'm good to go to me lock restoration project. Wellies will be worn as it will be a bit clarty on site.

Managed to get me 2-stroke strimmer fired up and running yesterday after it conked out doing a bit of vegetation control on the canal bank; one is a bit chuffed cos I ain't very technically minded although some naughty words may have been used in the effort to get it going.

Norty words are a must with recalcitrant 2-strokes.
Enjoy the day on the cut.

Grey here and pretty breezy but still warm, 12C.
Breakfast has been consumed, sans nose bleed, and I'm all fired
up and ready to attack the Sons of Morris complete with aged mater in tow.

"En avant", as Mr Brunel was wont to say.

Gloomy day here at Luton Airport - and not just the weather.

I was living in Luton (in sight (and sound) of the airport) when Monarch was born.
We had smart girls in uniforms as neighbours.

Bliddy windy up on the lock today. One was walking along the chamber wall and a particularly strong gust nearly blew me off the wall. Mixing mortar wasn't much fun either as I was getting sand-blasted whilst loading the mixer.

Back home now and in need of a large mug of tea.

Our local 'church house' is having a new chimney built.
The previous chimney was taken down a month ago and the masons have been 'waiting for the stone to be made'.
They returned today and were up aloft exposed to the strong westerlies.
I would have postponed the job - today was not a day to be working in a gale.

Bit sporty landing in the gusts this afternoon Mr Checkers?

Shame about Monarch, for some reason I always had a good flight with them, nice experience all round.

Incredibly sad day for all those involved with Monarch.
Not the first and definitely won't be the last either.

Was a cracking day for gardening. A wee bit on the windy side
but quite warm with it. Got lots done.

Now drinking wine. This morning was a 2 hour session at Chicksands working on small jumps and flow. Then a PT session at the gym working legs... Oooh then finally a swim lesson with the view of getting the technique sorted for sprint triathlons.

Much as I like red wine I do draw the line at a mug of the stuff
with breakfast. One always has a glass of brandy.
Not really, I love a mug of tea first thing on rising. It lubricates
the inner being.

Not a bad start to the day. The wind has dropped a lot and the
sun is peeping past some broken clouds. Chilly after the last few
days though, only 10C. Forecast for the rest of the day is
sunshine.

Come 08:15 I shall attempt to get an appointment at the surgery
for my mother in order to get a prescription out of them.
Usually a very boring process making lots of calls until any
success is made.
