MONDAY 1st September.

Yes!  It is September already and the nights are drawing in.  Lighting up time is 8.15.  Ooooh!  Had a very good day out from first thing until 7.30.  Who said an estate agents life was easy? This awful scandal in Rotherham is truly dreadful.  I read a lot about it in the papers during the weekend and what really is frightening is that the suggestion that it may well have occurred in other towns to the same scale,  too.  Whilst the officials who hid their heads in the sand are quite rightly being brought to task,  there should be as much vigour, and yet more,  in capturing those vile characters who carried out that dreadful abuse.   Called at Clares house after work and she was able to tell me of their lovely holiday. They both look well tanned and healthy.  Clare had prepared a takeaway Chicken Masala and rice, for me to take home. I had it later and it was scrummy.  Watched the MotoGP on the box.  Those guys are fearless.  Fantastic riding.  On a circuit and topping 200mph.  Mad!


SUNDAY 31st August.

Had a long lie-in then got the red leathers on and took the SB out fro an exhilarating run out to KL.  The place was packed to busting.  Some bikes were parked over the road it was so full.  It was a perfect day for riding.  No wind,  dry roads, and warm.  Perfect.  Had an equally exciting ride back.  Then on the Poop Deck with Johnny Walker and at 5 went out fro Cocktails @ 5.  Derek was late. The silly old duffer had gone to the Capitola as he thought it was the First Sunday in the Month ( when we always frequent the Avanti Capitola).  He stood for a while wondering where everyone was before realising his error.  It will be a long time before we let him off the hook. 


SATURDAY 30th August

The weather forecasters got it wrong as it turned out to be a lovely sunny day.  I worked until midday ,  whizzed around the town fro my weekend shopping then went to the garage and took the Merc out for a spin around the lakes.  Stopped off at Gummers How and read bits of the Telegraph then up to Bowness and Windermere,  which was heaving with visitors.  there must be nobody left in Tokyo.  Back home then and  a hour or two on the Poop Deck having a good stab at the GK Crossword.  Surprised myself how many I got.  Have not finished it yet.  Will have another attempt during the week.



Another day in the, very full, and exciting,  life of a Lake District  Market -Town Estate Agent.
