    Tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday - garden , garage and vehicle stuff. Might go out and look for a new car for Mrs GP if I see anything interesting and deffo get out for some fun on the KTM

    Monday - take No.1 son back to HMS Collingwood after 2 weeks Leave. We might go via Portsmouth for a look around the old ships etc..

    So what are you all up to?

    Off out on Enduro bikes in half hour, with Manu. He's just 16 and crazy. We're off into the big sand dunes, where we dare each other to go up and down various stuff. He generally wins

    If I was 16, I'd be doing what he does. He thinks "I can get up there". I Think "That'll fucking hurt"

    I’m taking the sport classic for it’s mot in an hour or two, with a possible view to selling it this year.
    I also suggested a family walk to the top of Ben lomond this weekend, the first Munro for my Mrs and my youngest.
    Othwise I’ll be tinkering with sunbeam electrics when I get time.

    That'll be gorgeous this weekend. I've only seen it from below, used to go to Balmaha pike fishing on a regular basis. Climbed Conic Hill once but never Ben Lomond.

    Working in Brizzle today. Taking over support of a legacy project that has no documentation from someone in Wokingham who is on his last day today and who isn't responding to skypes or emails, which is likely to be fun... Had anticipated a very quiet day and an early finish to cook dinner which is now likely to go to pot and upset the wife.

    Keep considering the possibility that I might eat some food, every time I start to get hungry my wonderful digestive system reminds me why I'm still not eating.

    Tonight - cook chicken fried rice (if I get home in time) then toddler bedtime, then chill out with Netflix.

    Tomorrow - replace front springs and top mounts on the 207, investigate the dodgy fuel cap with a multimeter, look at the dodgy ABS sensor on the Elgrand, consider taking it to a local motorhome dealer to get a rough idea of what it might be worth on the private market.

    Tomorrow night - cook dinner then studio night, probably download some techno and plan a new set, bit of writing, maybe beer up and watch Grand Tour which I've got behind on.

    Sat/Sun/Mon - no solid plans, weather is supposedly good on Sat/Sun so might take the wife and child out, or might just enjoy a couple of days at home. Might try to give the wife a day in the studio while me and child watch Disneys, in return I might get a day in the workshop to sort out all my RC shizzle for the big extravaganza next weekend.

    Mon PM - buddy coming over for takeaway, trash-talking and Cards Against Humanity tournament. He's pretty much the unbeaten champion so I need to up my game. Should have a late drunken two hours alone while the wife drives him home.

    Hope y'all have a great one

    Birthday today. Taking it easy, receiving guests and presents throughout the day, then going to watch Brian Cohen on the big screen. Apparently he's not the messiah?

    Ver appropriate for the time of year


    I finished Tuesday afternoon.

    Yesterday morning helping a mate wrangling a load of teenagers make a zombie film, afternoon starting to trash a 15 year old wooden climbing frame and swing. Foal has outgrown it a tad, and we want to plant a tree there.

    Today, finishing trash, then same mate collecting timber for his chilies.

    Tomorrow/SatSun, away with Filly, 21st wedding anniversary (actually last week, but it was Easter), leaving Foal in charge.

    Have a good weekend folks
