  1. Romanians at the Front Gates...

    My partner came back over from doing the 1st wave of the dogs outside to tell me there were 2 foreigners at our front gates. So I lurched off out, uncombed hair, unwashed, having used my T shirt to clean off the BBQ last night, stubble from Friday & half a lit tab dangling from my lips. Wouldn’t be wanting to cut a posh look with potential trouble on a damp Sunday morning just after 7am would we?

  2. Drinking in the East Midlands..

    Been a while since we saw anything new in this corner, so here's a little piece of bollox from me..


    East Midlands is like a poorer vsn of the West Midlands, but with a more Yorkshire accent & a tendency to get called hen, duck, petal or ‘filthy fucking southerner’ depending on the locality.

    starts at 9:26:21, we're about 4th in. Goes on until 9:37:37 as the rest all make their entrance. Pay attention to the affies, the bernese mountains, the whippets & the pugs who eventually won & the clumbers who IMO were unlucky not have been placed.

  5. 10 Books that have stayed with you or affected you? Part 2

    carried on from: http://www.therevcounter.co.uk/blogs...ou-part-1.html

    I’ve my own memory about the Hobbit. Read to us as a class by the strict Mrs Chiverton during balmy spreading chestnut tree summer afternoons. Bilbo & his barrels. Might be committing a cardinal crime but LOR, whilst enjoyed & I do get the frequently made comment about it not being long enough, never really blew my frock up.
