    Ah, slight hiccup.
    Firstly, went out to cover the window and put my tarpaulin back. I was a bit knackered and not really thinking so decided it would be a good idea to hold the thing down with some coping stones. Woke up this morning to find them in the pond and 3 punctures in the fibreglass. Put me right in a bad mood because It was totally me being a plank.
    Ordered up some stuff to repair it which will be here Wednesday.
    Secondly, my mate is now coming at the weekend to put the coping stones on so should be ready to fill up shortly after barring any more cock ups.

    Itís Brazilian state Feline, from Black Mountain Quarry. Was the best of about 30 samples and reasonably priced too.
    Theyíre a bit slippery when wet so going to re-seal the patio when all the dirty stuff is done. Just have to find a decent ďnon slipĒ sealant.
    They do look rather nice when theyíre all cleaned. Theyíre a bit dusty at the moment.

    That's what I like about you Mr Big, always thinking of others and giving them a good laugh but when it comes to me you are always trying to get me to come so you can eat my biscuits

    Just on way back from Mark Knopfler at The Albert Hall. Still a fantastic musician despite walking around like my Grandad lol.
    Thought Iíd better get around to seeing him live before he knocks it on the head, or worse!
    So, no Mission Impossible more Brothers in Arms

    Itís great that these old artists can still perform. Well musician artists, not so sure about singers, lol.
    We went to the O2 last December to see Jeff Wayne direct his War Of The Worlds stage show.
    We didnít think to look at who was in it before we went and were surprised to find 80 year old Herbie Flowers still strumming the strings, and boy could he still play.

    As Jim Bowen used to say - stay out of the black and into the red. May be he was a Koi keeper as well.

    Super, smashing, lovely, great.

    WOTW is just like a pond although the Marsian's had red weed and we have blanket weed. I bet blanket weed grows the fastest though.

    The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one, but still they came. That's better odds than I would get for finishing my QT by Christmas I reckon
