WEDNESDAY 17th December

A damp but mild morning.  Plenty folk in town and I had lots of callers into the office including Andy and Steve Drague with beautiful little Daisy and the new baby! What a Christmas they are going to have!  It is so very special when you have children around at Christmas.    Called up to see my old pal Jock.  He is doing fine.  He is cosy and warm in his place and gets regular visits from several of his friends and that is what keeps his spirits up.  He is 95 now.  Fantastic bloke.  Stayed in practicing the guitar and taking some tuition from YouTube.  The fingertips of my left hand are stinging!  But making  good progress,  so that makes it all worth while.  I went out to listen to Trickle Charge at the Rose.  The place was packed like it used to be  long ago.  Even Rodney was out!  Had the last one in The Mill then home.  A very nice evening.


TUESDAY 16th December

A damp morning but remarkably mild for this time of year.  Most unseasonable.  A White Christmas seems less and less likely.  Cumbria Highways have closed my street for a couple of days as they are replacing those dangerous paving slabs from the junction with The Gill.  They were always being cracked and uneven and certainly were a hazard to pedestrians.  They are being replaced with good old faithful Tarmac so it will be a job well done.   Christmas is getting closer and the usual collection of Chrissy Songs are on the radio all the time.  If I hear Chris Rea sing Going Home For Christmas just one more time!!!! I surveyed the Flats in readiness for the complete painting and re-carpeting next Spring.  Doing the same for the Springfield Mansion on Thursday so will be inviting tenders for the ( very lucrative ) job shortly. I watched on iPlayer James Mays Toy Stories where he built ( with the aid of a considerable number of University Students ) a toy glider which managed to fly from Ilfracombe in Devon to the Isle of Lundy ( 22 miles).  A brilliant, entertaining, programme.  Not one swear word amongst it!  Makes a change from so many shows on the box nowadays.


MONDAY 15th December

I had the day off!  Trying to recover from the excesses of the previous evening.  Just pottered around in the house and only left when I went up to see Clare for a nice tea.  Home then  for Tom Kerridge on the box followed by UC and a programme about the beginnings of air travel.  Then some more practice on the guitar and a wee dram to finish off.  Rather nice.

Remember to only bet what you can afford to lose, as its all just for a bit of fun.  The Bookies win in the end! 

Have you ever wondered how bookies  have wives dripping in gold jewellery, manage to live in classy houses and drive flashy cars?  Just think about it for a moment or two.  You will soon figure it out!

Good Luck!
