There was a couple of great stories in The Times this morning. Firstly, the IMF has said the UK’s recovery is going to outstrip other major nations, great news for George not so great for the Eds. Also it appears cocaine and ecstasy use is rising amongst young people, this is after several years of falling use and the threat that we were producing the world’s most boring young people.
I can’t be the only person to be worried by the propensity of internet idiots to pervert the ruling of the courts, as happened with this guy. The cancer is irrelevant, if you haven’t paid the mortgage then it’s your not house. The key bit of information in this story is that it went to court and the court found against him. He needs to pay £41,000. Perhaps the internet idiots would do well to remember that’s the equivalent of at least two people’s salaries for the lender and bailiff.
Today I weighed in at a post wee 13 stone 7 pounds, the lowest I’ve been for a year. Unfortunately it’s a Friday so there’s a risk that will increase over the weekend, but the general trend is down and I’m feeling much more disciplined.
I finished work early today and enjoyed the 25 degrees heat in the yard. Fee came home around half five ish and we enjoyed rib eye steak on the barbecue while drinking a 2004 Chateau Mon Brison with Milky Chance amongst others playing on the Spotify. For post barbecue drinks Fee made her first Espresso martinis at home, trying both Disaronno and Frangelico, both went down a treat!
Exciting monthiversary weekend was revealed by Fee, tomorrow we’re visiting the Ouseburn tunnel and then Gibside and on Sunday we’re having Sunday dinner at the newly opened Bonbar.
