And those who forget that you should never have a wee against any type of fence in case it is electric :shock: :shock: ;)

That reminded me of one of Henry Brewis's stories (hill sheep farmer/writer) about how he got rid of an annoying VAT inspector :lol: :lol: :lol:

What made me smile today was getting two tickets for the recording of the last ever episode of Cabin Pressure starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Roger Allam, Stephanie Cole and John Finnemore who also writes it. :D :D

There are only 200 seats in the theatre for the recording and last time over 17,000 people applied :shock: No numbers yet for how many tried to get tickets for this one but it will be a lot so feeling very lucky. On top of that MC, who is also a fan of the programme, is flying over from Budapest to join me at the recording.

OK, AFTER that I really won't go anywhere else... :whistle:

Oh, and I also got Dodger's Guide to London. I got it because it looks like Terry Pratchett's take on Horrible Histories, in a way.

Lots of fun news here! I love reading this thread. :D

Let's see... after having both cars in the shop it's nice to have them both back. We've got a long holiday weekend. And, my new running shoes should be arriving today. :D
