Week 41

Day 281 – Friday 14th December 2018

According to my weather app it was 3°C and raining in Reigate today…

… 18°C and sunny here.

Didn’t do too much today, was looking at how to get down to the heel of Italy without having to suffer too many crappy Italian campsites. It’s not easy. Even when you find a good campsite working out what the access is like is a bit of a nightmare. 

Just after lunchtime Cfor pushed his luck with the French dog across the way too far and got chased home; never seen him move so fast.

much safer on the dashboard

Day 282 – Saturday 15th December 2018

An overcast day. Went for a long walk this morning and a spin on Zippy this afternoon.

Day 283 – Sunday 16th December 2018

Bloody raining this morning which is a bit of a bummer as the forecast last night was sun for today. I believe they have storm Deidre back at home and it is freezing so shouldn’t really complain too much.

Spent the morning watching Netflix while the weather cleared up then went for lunch at Sunita’s Castle.

Later I went to the Rainbow Bar in Espiche to watch Manchester United play Liverpool. It was depressing. Liverpool were far too sharp for United. Our defence looks absolutely petrified of making mistakes. Whatever happened to clattering a winger in the first 2 minutes then booting the ball into Row Z for the rest of the game. Our attack wasn’t much better.

The owner of the Rainbow Bar used to be a footballer and he knows José.

The Special Sacked One has even been here

Day 284 – Monday 17th December 2018

A cloudless sky this morning and it was time to do Day 2 of Week 6 of Couch to 5k. My legs were okay but I can’t say I enjoyed the session and from now on all the sessions are 25 minutes or longer runs. Think it is time to get a playlist sorted.

I was paired with Julie at petanque this afternoon. We didn’t do too bad but I really am going to have to learn to shoot.

 Day 285 – Tuesday 18th December 2018

Overcast start to the day then at 10am the sun suddenly came out and it was the most beautiful day ever….

José was finally sacked 😀

Went to the Christmas drinks reception. Free food & booze.

I made a right pig of myself with the veg samosas, I kept saying to myself just two more, just two more…

Free booze & Brits is never a pretty combination so it was a good job the freebies ended at 6pm cause I think some people on our table were only minutes away from an arm wrestling competition.

Day 286 – Wednesday 19th December 2018

Mixed day, Julie wanted to go Christmas shopping, my favourite pastime.

 Day 287 – Thursday 20th December 2018

Lovely morning. Time to do Day 3 of Week 6 of Couch to 5k. I was supposed to run for 25 minutes but I did the full 5k…

… it took me 31 mins 50 seconds; not bad for an old cunt git
