    We are still pitched up at Henley on Thames. We originally came here for the regatta which finished last Sunday, but as the weather has been so good we decided to stay on for the music festival which started on Wednesday evening.We are sited on the opposite side of the river from the festival but can hear the performances. The Beach Boys appeared on Wednesday to kick the event off, Last night it was Jamie Cullam, tomorrow is an orchestral evening and the festival ends on Sunday with Paloma Faith. But tonight it's MADNESS, would love to see them but tickets are priced at £120 so we will stand on the opposite bank of the river and listen for free.
    Wherever you are and whatever you are doing have a great weekend

    Brisey.

    Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee are here this weekend and in a moment of weakness I said I would operate the follow spot as the usual man is away working elsewhere...

    So grass cutting at QMJ today and tomorrow and off to Lisbon (Estoril) at 8.30 am on Sunday.:Sad:

    Home for us.

    Daughters school fun day tomorrow which has a decent beer tent and then barby tomorrow night.

    My son is with us this weekend so it's nice to be altogether.

    We have an outdoor table tennis table arriving in the morning which apparently takes one hour to erect. I predict at least 3 hours avec swearing and bits left over when I have finished:Doh:

    I will just whip the mower around this lot and then see about cutting some eucalyptus logs for Wildman.

    Now planning to start my Malvern adventure on Tuesday.

    What do people do with their time when they retire...

    I'm going to give the young lady a good seeing to................. ! ! :Eeek:

    Oil and filter plus fuel and air filters, a new cam-belt and rollers and she has just had 2 new pairs of shoes as well.

    Arranged to start at 7am tomorrow and be done before it's too hot.
    Don't care for the heat too much and sweat, oil, cramped conditions don't go together in my book.
