Mutter, mutter, mutter...

~ BBC breakfast news gave us another pearl of wisdom this morning. Apparently, as people are living longer, they are more likely to get cancer of some description. It is also more likely that the older we all get, the more likely it is that someone will develop a cure. So where exactly is the "news" to report there?

~ I also heard on the radio news about a fire station that's just been built, but for health & safety reasons they've not been allowed to install a pole. So some of the few modern day heroes we have left will run down two flights of stairs, hurtle through traffic-filled streets at full speed and run into a burning building to save someone's life, but heaven forbid they should endanger themselves by sliding down a pole.

~ To the guy in the convertible Bentley who tried persistently to park in my boot on the way home yesterday: having a nice car does not give you any priveleged right of way or personal highway code - it just makes you a tosser who clearly has too much money.

~ I've been looking forward to tomorrow afternoon and leaving work for my first break in four months and have every intention of heading south to visit Little Sis & family for a few days. Imagine my delight to wake up with a sore throat & runny nose this morning. Sorry, no time for man-flu right now; by fair means or foul I'll be rid of this damned cold by tomorrow night.

Glad I got that little lot off my chest - I'm feeling better already...

Indeed you will be rid of that cold before Saturday, coz PP & I have a table booked for Saturday night and I won't get another babysitter at this short notice, erm... I mean we are really looking forward to your visit and would hate for you to be ill and not thoroughly enjoy your stay here :oD

And about the guy in the Bentley, what did we tell you about convertibles? Why do you think he was driving right up your....?

Nightnurse...I swear by it.
Plus a hot curry and lots of water.
But not the barley and hops flavoured variety....I'll be thrown out of the militant wing of Camra for advising you to not drink beer!
Oh! Enjoy your trip down south.
