Here she is!

 I think she looks good!

What will Arwen look like

 I took Arwen in to get her haircut earlier and have asked for her to have a short cut.  This will apparently get rid of her puppy hair but she's nearly 4 so not really a puppy anyway.  It should mean we won't have to cut her hair as often.  Hopefully she doesn't look too bad. 

Good fun yesterday

 Started off in Chandos, £7.70 a pint!

Finished off with chow mein, sweet and sour chicken and some chicken and sweetcorn soup to start.  Delicious! 

First big walk with the dog in ages

14,000 steps already this morning.  I walked the kids to school and took the dog straight out when I got home. With the kids off for over 3 weeks it's been hard to take the dog out for a long walk.

London calling

 I've got today off from work as I have a few left to use before I leave work and am heading into London to see my mate James.  We used to meet up everyday for lunch pre pandemic and sometimes after work for a couple of cheeky beers before heading home.  With us both mostly working remotely from home plus having children and wife commitments it sometime hard to arrange a date.  Should be fun.  We're going to have a mini pub crawl around Charing Cross / Soho.  That means it's China Town for dinner before heading home!

An extra month

 Not much news on the job hunting front although I got confirmation on Friday night that they'd like to keep me on for another month which is nice to know.  I'd need to sign up for the whole month but don't have to sign yet in case something big comes up before the end of the month.


Suported by Indoor Pets.  The first band was the best

Not sure how he managed to play the bass!



 Only 2 sessions left of the season for the minis and it was a good one.  The usual dickheads where well behaved and Arthur is continuing to have lots of fun.

I was stiff after the game on Saturday but more or less fine but I was in agony after the training session with the kids!  I was racing a few of them on the obstacle coarse and went a bit to hard through the slalom and I could hardly get off the sofa yesterday with a bad back.  It seems a lot better today but still sore.


We beat Gravesend 48-24 at the weekend.  The last vets game of the season.  It was a little unfair on the Gravesend lot as we they only had 3 subs.  We had 8 or 9, who most where from the 2nd team and young and fit.  It was good fun though, plus no injuries to boot!
