Chester [ Hollyoak's Country]

Tomorrow I'm off to Chester for two days for a Birthday party. Dan Clarke turns 30 he used to do all my cooking at uni and take my underpants out the washing machine and make me cups of tea. At the moment I wash my own underpants there's No lady in my life. I still cannot cook much except ropey scrambled egg. I make the cups of tea in a great collection of ceramic mugs. It's set to be a good couple of days in Hollyoak Country for this celebration; I myself will keep my eyes peeled for any footballer WAG's and perhaps con Dan into buying the tea at least once.

Confused Dog

Readers here is a little dog that thinks he is a reindeer at christmas bless him.

This Offering

So I took a hike to my local bakery on the search for lunch and on offering the lady my 10 pound note in these credit crunch times to pay for my sarnie; I had a flash of inspiration to do this doodle. Whilst listening to the best of Stereophonics in a navy tee whilst doing a funny accent and sneezing and tapping my foot singing I've completed my doodle.

This Week

The other morning I spotted a Fox on the road whilst I was out on my bike. Plus a few drivers swerving about who probably shouldn't have been on the road. I've finally won again another runny nose and cold. Plenty of hot drinks for me then on the cards. Good times its christmas this week everyone in reminding me.
