    We are clipping bits of the white fur off our dog that needs trimming anyway and putting it out for the blue-tits and robin who are making their nests.
    They love it and now know where to look for it!:):):):)

    A busy morning here at Wimblowdriver Towers. Dug a hole and planted a plastic tube for the rotary clothes line for SWMBO. Then went to get a galleon of petrol (£9-48 shock horror). Drained the stale fuel from the lawn mower, cleaned the spark plug and checked the oil, filled the fuel tank and cut the grass for the first cut of the year. Got bollocked of SWMBO for walking through the house with grass clippings stuck to me boots. Put the rest of the galleon in me bike tank as need to wake the beast up this week. Rest of the day in front of the telly box I reckon.

    I would just like to say, not for the first time, that Gripfill is one of the greatest inventions in the history of the world. Needed a tube to fill some cracks in exterior render, Screwfix were doing a box of a dozen for 25 quid.

    You won't get a real heart attack with that piddly breakfast. You need to add sausages, black pudding, hash browns, mushrooms and a portion of beans. Served with fried bread and a mug of tea. :)
