#2120. Big shame you could not be with Bubblewrap and me this morning, Ben. You missed an absolute treat. We talked about little all else but railways, in particular the wheel arrangements of pre-grouping LNER locomotives. Better than pumping cream up your jacksie.

So me & Mrs C sat in the Oasis cafe in Bulwell this morning having a cup of tea during our Bulwell shopping trip.

Noticed a bloke walk in wearing his sunglasses on the back of his head, seriously why would anyone want to do this ? or am I missing something / getting old or both, I just do not know or have the slightest idea why !

Neither have i catfan,them sort often have a jumper tied round their shoulders as well,plus threequarter length shorts no socks and sandals,

Mind you not as bad as a woman i saw today,  she fell out of the monkey,was quite fat middle aged wearing multi coloured leggings,she zig zagged across the road stopping the traffic,before spreadeagling herself across a bench. See it all in Bulwell don't we, lol

I think the sunglasses on the back of the head are 'parked'. Somewhere to put them when you don't need them, and you can find fhem again. Just guessing.

Up at 06.00 looks a nice day so coffee at spoons at about 08.45 it is then.

We're off to Loughborough to collect some more bits from the old house & do a bit of cleaning (stepson still out of country)

Might give The Needle & Pin a "visit"  at lunch time. :)

Dull and damp here but only got a week left to finish all the jobs. Pond is going to take most of that week so must carry on regardless.

Talking about jeans. Yesterday I found 3 pairs in the bottom of my wardrobe and only one pair had ever been worn. Mrs PP used to buy jeans for me but I am not a jean person. They all fitted perfectly. I will wear the nearly new pair for gardening. 2 x 36" R's going cheap.

Oh dear Col !  Does the excess hang over the top of your belt, and then take a nosedive southwards?

Ha!!

I prefer to think of it as a slight self supporting protuberance denoting a well fed individual...  ;)

The pond emptying saga continues. My farmer friend does not have a slurry pump - it has become a specialists job so he uses a contractor. So I bought another pump that should have been OK for dirty water. It blocked up after 30 sec! I made a big filter basket using a plastic fruit basket and an onion sack. Lasted 20 min and blocked up. Then I had a better Idea (I thought). I've been using the spinner bowl from a washing machine as a fire pit/bbq. It has thousands of perforations and looked like a jumbo filter. So I cut out the centre spindle, placed the pump inside and lowered the lot into the pond. I just floated!  The perforations blocked up immediately :angry: So I drilled out about 100 more 6mm perforations and it worked reasonably well. It took 6 hours with several stops to clean the makeshift filter to almost empty the pond (it was only 1/3 full). As the pond drained about a dozen mushrooms appeared to be popping out of the mud. Yes, another dozen golf balls. The pond used t be the water hazard on my little 5 hole golf course, but tht's another story ;)
