    Hose the patio.
    Sadly Nigel, excitement at your age can cause this problem. Have you looked at the range of adult nappies?

    Ordered a spanking new torch from Light For Me directly about 10 days ago... still waiting on an email to tell me that it's been sent...

    I know their terms of business are 2-14 working days to process and 3-7 working days to deliver, but I'm getting a bit worried, as I'm off to Scapa next Friday and have no primary light at the minute.

    Does anyone have any reassuring words to offer?

    You can borrow mine if it doesn't arrive in time Ian. I can always send up with someone local-ish if you can't swing by

    I went diving in Swanage at the weekend. I had a bit of a weekend of "Firsts":
    First time getting salt water on my twinset.
    First night dive under the pier.
    First mandatory decompression stop dive.

    Saw my first baby cuttlefish - about 3 inches long.
    First time I've seen a lobster walking on the sea bed - it came out of its hidey hole in the turret, walked accross, barged a spider crab out of the way, then settled back into another hole on top of a large conger.

    I did 6 dives, totalling 4.5 hours underwater.
    The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

    Are you sure it wasn't a little cuttle - Sepiola atlantica? Baby common cuttles are a bit thickset and clumsy, like a toddler

    I dont know. It's the first cuttle I've ever seen outside of a budgie cage. It was small, similar colour to the sand, had a frill all the way round the sides and played around in the sand for a few minutes while we watched it.

    It looked like this one.


    We also saw a massive fish which had a head that looked like a conger eel, but a fish type tail and 3 dorsal fins. It also seemed to have a layer of silt over its back, but was definitely alive and swimming (well, hanging neutrally in one of the holds).
