  1. Nothing for me tonight Mr H. The whole family have come down with a D&V bug over the last couple of days, not nice.

    Went on to Fuller's website to purchase a new glass for my LP, however they wanted seven and a half quid for postage. Will wait until next trip to London and steal one!

    Have one for me, it really isn't Friday without a small libation!

  4. Bar open Fawlty?
    Early doors. Well done squire. Need a stiff livener.
    Sorry about the D&V drew and fam. (I'd suspect there's some colloquial term in Lanarkshire). Hope you've got 'Both Ends Burning' over at yours?

  12. They smelt of brown leather and Wormwood Scrubs and too many right wing meetings.

    I think we've been here before in a comment thread haven't we?

    It has been one of those weeks. Reckon next week might be as well.

  13. yes, she usually serves me a cocktail when I get in ('from the office' as football commentators used to say - meber that during the midweek games, 'if you've just got in from the office the score is...). She then scuttles the kids off into the drawing room after which I can relax and recount to her the days debacles. Before she tells me to shut the fuck up and get the prawns cooked. Have a good weekend. Paddys day of course tomorrow. Should be the usual scumfest here
