Dear Diary

Recommended Posts

I think I might actually be turning into a goose. As I was leaving work today a load of them were flying over and without even thinking I punched the air and shouted, "solidarity brothers!"

My coworkers were rather confused........

Feel sorry for your flightless cow-orkers, then soar off into abusing anyone who comes near you.

Today I’m sat on the main pedestrianised road in Sorrento with my book and refills of coffee, mixed in with people watching. 

I do like Italian women... although I think they’re like fine art. Great to look at but far too expensive to “own”. 

Travelling alone are you?

We went to a classical music thing on Wednesday and the wife got very flirty with one of the singers after he dragged her up to dance during one song. I told her bluntly that she could have him on the condition I get Vittoria on reception here at the hotel. 

I’m not sure what’d be a bigger challenge, my current Indian wife or an Italian mistress. 

Cracking performance though, we had front row seats.

They also did the classics of “Elephants Yeah!” and “just one Cornetto”. 

My wife thankfully didn’t murder me.

I used to live in Manchester. Next door to John Hannah randomly. Luckily for him he was mever in and fancied a game of touch and pass at 4am

Anyway, i used to run from the Printworks to Old Trafford and back on the canal. Geese scared me shitless and made me abort many a run. The Pevril was a great recovery point

I have turned my central heating on for the first time since spring.  


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

I have a Job Centre interview this afternoon, having been criticised in my last two visits for not doing enough, I think 3 interviews, and a potential job offer (after security clearance), plus possibly another interview next week, should get her off my back.

Although I doubt it.

And, some people said learning Dutch was a waste of time. How dare you.

Thanks to my extensive Babbel training, I was able to explain to the guy at the trampoline park that I didn't speak Dutch (in Dutch which confused him), locate all-day parking in the town of Mol (deserve a medal), help a Polish guy make sense of the self serve coffee machine at a service station, agree with the translation of a Welsh speaking choir on Dutch TV ... and explain that no, we hadn't booked, but could we have a table for four at seven.

Good holiday. Really like Belgium. Apart from the Antwerp Ring which was designed by Satan himself.

If you read Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaimen, it suggests that the M25 was designed by Satan Himself, and the demon spent many hours moving cones in the middle of the night while it was being built to make the shape of some demonic symbol to be prepared for the Apocalypse.

Having read Good Omens and now driven both the M25 and the Antwerp Ring, I can only conclude that Gaiman and Pratchett had not done the latter or else they would have chosen that road.

Two minute silence at football to remember those killed in the wars. Have stood in remembrance many times. However this year the club played the Last Post over the tannoy. It's the first time I've ever shed a tear in remembrance. I wasn't alone. 

I've never served in any military capacity but the lone bugler gets me every single time. 

We will remember them!

Congratulations!

These things really are gratifying.

I not only told a German man, in German, but we proceeded to argue about it in German.

Spent the weekend on top of Mow Cop celebrating our sons 50th birthday, along with family and friends. Great view of the fireworks displays across the Cheshire plain and Staffordshire moorland. Proudly wore my Just Jane t shirt as part of the very modest financial contribution I have made to the drive to get the East Kirkby  Lancaster airborne again. 

T shirt bears an image of scantily clad Jane of Daily Mirror cartoon strip fame,  with the words "Just Jane" and a dedication to the Lancaster. My 7 year old grand daughter said it was "inappropriate" 😊😊😊

Today I was stood at a urinal having a wee when I noticed 20p in the trough. Quick as a flash, my brain went, "maybe if it was a quid". Christ I really am a tramp sometimes...
