Flo's Halloween drawings

 A little off season but pretty good all the same

Bewl water swim

On Sunday we were all up bright and early for a swim in the picturesque Bewl water.  I did it last year and when the weather is like it would be rude not to.

Friend's birthday plans changed

We were all supposed to go to Tonbridge Calling (local music festival) for our friend Kat's birthday on Saturday but it was just too hot to take the kids.  It was decided to hold it at the Olly's instead.

Recovery position

Last night after Saturday's antics.

Tonbridge Pride

 It was Tonbridge Pride at the weekend and April took the kids along with the rest of the Tonbridge Massive.  It's not really my thing but was away in Eastbourne anyway.  Looks like everyone had a great time.

Too much booze

 4 of us headed down to visit a friend in Eastbourne on Saturday.  I had far too much booze and was very ill on Sunday.  I even had to get the train home as didn't want to risk being sick in my friend's car.  Oh dear, i'm nearly 43 for fucks sake

Fantasy football starts again

 We had good fun last year, I finished 3rd in our Tonbridge group.  But also just outside the top 500k.  That's out of over 7m players world wide so pretty pleased.

Table's back

Our table maker brought back our table and bench this morning, it's looking good.  Hopefully the new braces keep it straight.  They should do as it now weighs a ton!

Back to roleplaying

 It's been 3 or 4 weeks since we last had an RPG night at the local board game cafe.  With people being on holiday / ill / GM unavailable we've not been able to meet up.  I offered my place up one week but one of our group was having anxiety issues so cancelled.

The latest game hasn't been great in my eyes which is not the GM's fault.  I just don't feel a massive attraction to pretending to be a vampire.  There's something I feel that's wrong with playing an inherently evil character.

I don't like doing it with computer games too.  I somehow always follow the good path.

Back in town today

 Did a fair amount of work this morning which is nice.  Still plenty to do before the big deadline in early September.

Interesting news.  The syndicate I work for has been bought by another managing agency so is going through all the usual rubbish at the PRA.  Quite  a few senior managers have left / or in the process of leaving (including mine).  I'm glad I won't be there for the transition.  Lots of integration headaches ahead I think.

Trial day

Arthur had is having a trial day at a new childminder today.  We're hoping she can take him for a few days a week starting in September till he starts at Hilden Grange with Flo next Easter.

Well, that was fun

What a great day.  Well done the girls.  I've watched much more that I thought I would and thoroughly enjoyed it all.  It was excellent!

Archers Royal...?  I bought Jono a bottle of Archers after much struggle trying to find it on the high street a little while ago.  We decided to finish it off in style with some champagne.  As you do.
