I gave blood for the 48th time this morning.  This time next year it should be my 50th!  I missed out on a good year of donations due to living in Chicago and looking after Florence last year so my brother has now taken the lead.  Git!  He is 2 years older than me though so I think it'll still count as me beating him

Just ordered a new pair of rugby boots

Will it be my last?

Every year I do this and I still keep plodding on.  Let's hope the Canterbury Stampede 2 add some speed to this old man.

First game is in 4 days.

Tonbridge Angels match

A few of the Tonbridge boys went to see Tonbridge Angels play on Saturday.  The hardcore watched the Liverpool vs Newcastle game before too.

Despite the loss it was good fun.

My rugby season starts next Saturday.  Let's see how my 40 year body holds out to Leigh away.  My money's on me not surviving.

Godstone Farm

I was supposed to take Flo fro a swim on Sunday to meet up with Steve and his kids but his son had an eye infection so thought better of it.  Instead we went to Godstone Farm.  Flo loves animals and although she didn't get to feed them by hand (her favourite thing) she did see lots of new ones.

Her (my) favourite was this Tribble.  We named it Donald.

Newest desktop arrangement

Yes, FM is up and running.  But only so I could test the dual monitors.

P.S.  Ignore the burst panels in the double glazing, it's on of the many things we need to do to the house.

The mother load

I was one of the first in this morning and have found the mother load.

Usually the chocolate biscuits are the first to go.

Was once a nice view...

I still need to work on the setup, but I managed to get both monitors working last night.

Q: Who needs the view anyway?  
A: April.  

I may need to put a new desk in the front top room and move all of my bits there.

They've arrived

My replacement laptop and 2 monitors have arrived.  I didn't have a chance to play with them much last night as I was out watching the football.  April's not overly impressed as the monitors take up half of the desk space.  When I eventually get a gaming PC they it will make more sense.


Stuck outside London this morning and spotted this
