Went for a small shop in local Morrisons.

Why oh why do silly people use the self service trolley tills when they're buying two or three bits of food plus six bottles of wine and four bottles of spirits (with the big security tags).

I ended up behind her while we waited for the busy staff member to come over and do the till override for the alcohol and then take the spirits off to a normal till to remove the security tags and bring the bottles back to her.

And.... on the second self service trolley till....... a youngish lad (as in under 40) with two big packs of 24 beer cans plus four sausage rolls.

Aaaaaaaand, calming breaths.....

I was in Aldi the other day, a young lass with lips like a baboons arse refused to wear a mask as it made her lips sore, I reckon it was the ten gallons of collagen

Because we are out of the EU, taking Dillon is far more expensive, and I have booked a visit to the vet on Jan the 8th for his fitness to travel certificate, but he has had a tinter test already
Checked my international driving licence is valid but I have to get another ( I have the 1968 one but need the 1949 one for Spain
Ordered an insurance green card
Started clearing the motorhome garage ready to load it with what we need in Beni

Cut the lawn (yes I know Andrew :))
Finished a coffee table I had been peeing around with for a while
Made a side table out of a couple of pieces I had previously made but wasn't happy with

Or in short avoided mrs slim as much as poss :rolleyes:
Tell me about it - mine is still growing like mad and has been and is too wet to cut.

Terrible start to the day. Been wide awake since 1:45am.

No reason whatsoever.

I can beat that by a margin, I had 2 hours sleep monday night & none since :confused:
Any particular reason?

I am always awake for two or three hours in the small hours, but never as bad as last night.

Did she have big tits?

Well, did she have big tits or what?

Up to two & a half years ago I’d go to bed at ten & within seconds I’d be snoring louder than an Elephant’s fart & wouldn’t wake until just before the alarm went off, I even slept through an Earthquake.
Since then I have not had a single full night’s sleep, that’s what happens when you discover your son in law is a cheating arsehole.

Bread boarded the prototype for a 'low water level' indicator for the van.. works with a liquid sensing hall effect sensor
Anyone ( Malone ? ) who has a motorhome more than a year old knows how reliable ( NOT !! ) the OEM things are

I have about a million things going around in my head, non of them good, I just cant seem to shut off recently, I have been like it for a couple of months now & am extremely knackered/grumpy

Nothing new for me I have been surviving on a maximum of 4 hours uninterrupted sleep for years, it goes in cycles, I can be like this for months then it hits & I can sleep reasonably well for a couple of days & then the whole thing starts again

You certainly have a hidden that you are grumpy well.

Not.

:)

I thought my sleep pattern would improve when I retired - it's got worse!! There's usually something going on to worry about (normally trades related!) but nothing like the intense pressure I was under at work which was pretty non-stop. Bizarre.

My waste water sensor is in that category, it often shows 1/4 full even when it’s empty. I emptied 8 litres of cheap Asda cola down the waste a little while ago hoping that may help it. Which reminds me, time to empty it to check if it worked. Either way, at least the waste tank will have had a cleanup
