Well I've never written that date before. I didn’t go out last night but went to bed and read a bit of Bernard Cornwall. I was out first thing this morning which means around eight as it’s pitch dark prior to eight. It’s nigh on dark now at just the back of two. Bloody weather it is but at least it stopped dry for our first walk.
Heaving it down again now. Raining fit for Billy-o.
I have a big pan of curry on, I’m using up all the leftovers. It’s almost a vegetarian curry but with half a chicken in. The dogs are a little upset as they were anticipating hen for tea. They don’t deserve it; on our morning stroll I stopped in the lee of the pier head for a quick tiddle and turned round and they were gone. Gone to play with a couple of spaniels it transpired when I found them fifteen minutes later. I told them last night to make a resolution to be good. They said they had but by morning it was forgotten.
I had resolved to give the drink a miss for a month then as my watch beeped noon I recalled I had an inch of Bell’s left, a glass of Merlot in a wine box and two bottles of Perroni. I can’t let drink go off so am having a proper New Year. I also have enough weed left for a spliff but can I find it? I’ll have to ask the local constabulary to bring in a sniffer dog. Even if it fails to locate it then it will provide company for my two.
That’s the whiskey gone. The Perroni is Beck’s and there are not two bottles but three. I’ll give it a whirl now. It tastes fine, glad I didn’t let it go sour. I’d better get on to todays illustrations.
Nothing to get excited about they are just gravel and water. GARY posts about lawns, flowers, drinking glasses with nothing in and the difficulty of being a Christian. I empathise with the latter, I gave up years ago. I recall his affection for little stones. Beck’s is fine…only two bottles to go.
I tidied up my desktop. Does anyone else use their desktop as a dumping ground? I also sorted yesterdays Bling dominance. Go into settings>advanced> and you can reset Chrome or whatever as your New Tab browser. I had to set it to something else first then set it to Chrome again. I shut down to be on the safe side. Back to normal.
What a tidy computer. I suspect it won’t last long but at least it will save time for a while. I have also backed up three months of snapping to an external hard drive. I don’t know why as I have little interest in pictures once they are taken and processed. They could always be better.
To quote Oscar Wilde.
“Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account.”
Hvae a wndoerufl yaer. Srtnoegr tahn I tghuhot is tihs Beck’s. Blrlaianit it is.
PS. The paper shop didn’t open till ten but the Telegraph crossword is done apart from 11 across. ‘Run through gardens in the garden of England-run’. (6) It’s a when one only needs one. I have S_E_E_.
