Get in you beauty.....now if you could only leave that bizarre music behind the missus might get a well earned break too...or maybe you're going on your own, in which case she gets a "double bubble(1966) !!!"

Cheers lads - it's nice to know the pay cheque is still rolling in when I'm not working. Been self employed between 2006-2017 so every break was a break in income.

Off to Montenegro in a few days after my youngest's graduation.

Sitting in the garden blowing bubbles for my cats.

They (and I) love them, and they think I'm a magician. :D

A wonderful country Bubbs - where are you staying? I’ve been to Kotor for a couple holidays and have stayed in Moran and Prcanj. Cetinje is worth a visit and if you are flying into Dubrovnik - pop into Cavtat, a lovely seaside village.

Watching The Cure on Saturday night in Hyde Park, after a sun-soaked day enjoying a wonderful support bill with some of my favourite bands. Beautiful weather, cold (albeit pricey) beer, good company, surprise pull with a ridiculously nice lass dancing in front of me during The Cure - pretty much a perfect day.
Then a lovely hair-of-the-dog couple of pints sat at the Southbank Centre patio bar looking over the Thames and topping up an already well-adjusted tan before a pleasant journey by train back to Dorset (via the New Forest in the evening sunlight).
Proper weekend that.

Watching the bees flitting around the lavender in the garden over the weekend.
Something really relaxing about seeing nature run it's course.

Saturday watching the England game. When it finished we hopped in the MG and drove to the coast. Picked up a Chinese takeaway and sat on the beach soaking up the last of the sun and watching the sun go down. Then a drive back through the lanes still with the top down. Lovely.

Some place called Tivat. Thanks for the tips :thup: We were looking at Dubrovnik and changed our minds at the last minute. I'll get there one day.

It was my birthday recently and at 00:05 on the very day, my father asked me if I wanted a cup of tea. I said yes and went into the kitchen 5 mins later. When I got there he had two large whiskey and dry gingers ready for us to toast in my birthday!

Parenting done right.

That’s not far from Kotor at all - which is a wonderful Venetian style city. For some glorious views go to the cafe at the top of the 27 hairpin road just outside of Kotor.

Your 1980 Cup Final winning goalkeeper has replaced our crumbling old front door with a magnificent, highly secure composite job that looks extremely swish. Can't wait to slam it in the face of the next delivery driver that asks us to accept a huge parcel for a "neighbour" who then turns out to live some distance away and is out for the next bloody month.

Nope, they don't love you at at all, you are their play thing that has just spent countless hours being a pawn in their amusement .
Your cats think you are a prick, that is just there to attend to the needs of the little ****ers and guess what you curtail at every step.
'Feed me ****' is the thoughts of the street vermin you have under your roof as you empty the contents of the best moggy food that man can buy for your sweet claw demons, and in return 'you can clean my **** out of that box of fullers earth you so kindly supply cos I'm ****ed if i am doing it, in fact once I have laid the most pungent 18 wheeler that to be honest has no given right to fit into my small frame , I am going to cover it in said earth and hoof the stone clad turd two foot outside the box.
In return prick, I shall allow you to pet me for a full two minutes before I decide you are done with and make sure you see claret.
after that I shall **** off leaving you to find the savlon and go upstairs to piss on your bed and leave enough shed hair to stuff a matress
Thanks for being my bitch
Your cat'
