The usual rubbish in the morning post: a couple of begging letters from indigent Villagers, a threat of court action from the Ramblers Association and, goodness me, a large manila envelope marked The Scottish Government and some indecipherable Gaelic underneath. I rip it open and, as promised, inside is a photograph of Mr Derek “Dekka” […]
A day of rest was all Mathieu Perreault needed to remain in the lineup. The Winnipeg Jets forward left Sunday’s game during the third period after taking a hard check from Philadelphia Flyers forward Dale Weise, but he’s set to suit up against the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday. Because of the impact of the collision, […]
Be Prepared It is a bit late for this now and I’m regretting it. Must do better next year! Have your rugs clean and planned out (I failed on this front. I haven’t got a no fill rug with a neck and that’s what I want now!) Establish A Routine This has been a godsend […]

luminous Guy Martin ‘Reactor N0. 4’ Head Gasket Kid’s Bobble Hat!. After a trip to Chernobyl Guy saw what radiation looks like up close.

Limited Edition. Made in the UK. One small size. Neon Green and burnt Orange mix.
Monday morning blues – no not me, another blue sky day in London, so what to do. Get dressed and go for a run. With a new £50 sponsorship donation geeing me on, I wanted to get under the 50kms to go mark. Blue skies, but chilly – okay JCR, load up on the layers […]
