I've just bought a bottle of diet coke and it has Dave on it. I've seen a couple of adverts about sharing a drink with friends but what's the point. I know a couple of Daves but nine in the city. The guy next to me is called Konstantinos. I don't think there is enough room on the bottle for that.

This is the first ever gig I ever went to. Me, Goofers, Ian and Brucey Bonus. I was 15, yes, that's 18 years ago! Jeez, I'm old.
Just bought myself a nice new umbrella. I wonder how long it'll take for me to lose it.

After all this deep thought
After all this deep thought what did I do? Find some more wood to burn.
Cats (bloody cats)
Work (really fed up with work, annoyed about not getting that role. Argh! There's lots of interest in me and what I can do but the big question is do I want to do it? What do I want to do?)
Fire (I love fire)
Football manager (just won the league, league cup and Euro cup with Liverpool, who should I buy? The Dortmund striker legsomething has agreed to join for £44m, but is that where I should spend my money?)
The fun you can have with fire
My two cats sunning themselves on a lazy afternoon. I've bought some fire word and fire lighter for the wood burner too. I think we may have another bbq today.

First barbeque of the year
What can I get you?

Work still goes on with our kitchen, this time we've got the floor guy in again, this time putting in the skirting.
Problem is that he's not coming round till 6 so I've had to cancel a game with Kris and Ian. 95% is now complete but I'm really getting fed up with boot having our house to ourselves. It shouldn't have taken the best part of 10 weeks do refit a kitchen. If it does then he should have quoted that when we were getting quotes.
It's a bank holiday weekend coming up. What have we got planned? Not much...
We're popping round a friend's new house on Sunday then we have friends popping round to ours on Monday.
We came second in our local pub quiz last night. £12 winnings! There were 6 of its this week that certainly helped but the major factor was that of Mark Scannell. He must have answered 75% of our answers!

One of those days
I've just tried to use a banana a computer mouse. It's going to be a long day.

Random find in village pub
Popped into a village pub for some lunch on Saturday and April spotted these.
I've been to both breweries whilst on trips to Australia. Melbourne and the original in Fremantle, Perth.
Poor old Pinchy
We went to my current favorite restaurant again yesterday. Sankey's.
All very good although they messed up our order. Wrong sauce on the lobster. Not to worry it was only an additional 15 mins late. We ended up getting half of my whole lobster free. Yeah!

Unfortunately I found out yesterday that I didn't get it. Doh! Pretty disappointed as it would have been a very good role for me and ideally I would like to stay at my current company. Oh well. Let's see if there is anything else available.
Another lottery win

Attack of the scooter
Change pot time
After an initial mix up with our room we finally got the deluxe suit we paid for. Our more importantly the bath with a view.
Can I have a crisp?
And another one for good measure
Obligatory foot shot
And lots of them. I couldn't post loads of photos of our holiday without mentioning cats. There were loads of them. In a good way of course.
We took a trip to a neighbouring village by water taxi to see their market and pop along to a recommended restaurant. Which incidentally, they opened especially for us.
Funny Turkish urinals
Must be a few Scottish people staying too

Work mode disengaged

Well, looks like something worked
I'm through to the next round of this internal role. Still a long way to go but that's a positive. I reckon two more stages before a decision. I'm going to do some research / prep to try and increase my chances of getting it. Fingers crossed.
