    I went to Ikea yesterday. I wanted an Bleujoob or Tiitweynk, but could only get a Poupe, a Peese and a Hayndjoob.
    I swear their marketing department just consists of four drunk guys and a bag of scrabble tiles.

    Not kidding now but I really did get four Gurlis for 12!

    That's excellent value. Costs a lot more in Puerta Galera these days. :-(

    Finished my charity challenge yesterday with a flourish. 18 laps, over 30km and 40,000 steps. Legs aren't working too well today.

    Had lunch with the other half’s parents. It was a scrawny looking chicken. Tasted good but darker than normal. After lunch went out to feed the dog and spotted the chicken that was limping yesterday was missing. Now I know where lunch came from.

    The other chicken that was missing was hiding in the dog house, sat on some eggs. Hopefully there will soon be some replacements. The dog house is the safest place for the chicken as it’s the only place the dog never ever goes.

    I hope the dog never develops a limp.

    The MCA have just written to me to confirm registration of the PLB that I registered in May. They did apologise for the delay in sending hard copy.

Seems like good reasoning? Yes?
    Lobbocks, I just want a new toy.
    Been playing with my shiny kit today. Amazing how it all comes back once you pick up a weld torch again.
