Carling Cup


We done 'em

Bloody marvellous, 17-9 against France. Difficult conditions making the ball handling awkward at times so few tries was always likely. Loved it :)

FA Cup

Oh goody, ManU away :)

.............. assuming we get past the O's that is.

Phase I completed

Phase I of a decorating job completed. I am doing a complete re-decoration, inside and out, of a 3 bedroom house which has had a loft conversion and a two story extension as yet unfinished. So, 6 beds, plus additional rooms.

I AM supposed to be retired and part-time self employed :)

Great result

We were run ragged for a bit, and Barca looked every bit the best in Europe, scarily dangerous at times, but a fantastic comeback after the break and gave a great account of ourselves.

A happy Gooner.

Fast Theo

Some great action

Sorry Biggun

My team losing a 4-0 lead was gutting, but Biggun will no longer be secretly smug that his lot emulate "the invincibles" - maybe next year, or the year after that, or ................ never? LOL

Son got spliced

Son James got spliced on Saturday. It was a very enjoyable day even though I had to wear a suit, first time (I think) for 35 years, and I even remembered how to tie a Windsor knot without practising.

Pictures of me in t'suit were NOT going to be unofficially leaked, so here's me and Sue in our "outfits"

Here's one of the other happy couple.

Others may follow when I get a decent one, cos me and my legendary prowess with a camera didn't get one out of 150 taken on t'day.

In fact my (lack of) prowess with a camera ranks alongside my (lack of) prowess as a navigator. LOL

One down

Great to smash the opposition to win your first 6 Nations game - but still ok if you win without the smash. Enjoyed a thrilling game, brutal at times; enjoyed Jonathan Davies' discomfort (although I do like him); and even Guscott had something good to say about England for a change.

Thought it funny when Haskell went off for Worsley, and my wife said "why are taking him off, and bringing that skinny guy on" ...... Worsley? skinny? LOL

Aches and pains

A very good mate of mine, some 17 miles away, needed some work done in his house. I wouldn't ever go further than a couple of miles to work these days, except for pals :)

He wanted a new half-glazed door from his lounge to kitchen, and three non-glazed doors from kitchen to other rooms. We went out and found some (new) solid, very nice quality oak veneered doors, which were expensive, but oh so heavy. With his help we fitted four of these over Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning. Today I ache all over - neck, back, arms, legs - and so does he. I said we were like a couple of old geezers, and he said that's because we ARE a couple of old geezers. LOL
