I've had to do a couple of shopping trips in the past week. Just the essentials, wine, whiskey beer etc etc. I have been amazed at how my local Aldi has got their head around the 'panic buying' that we have seen reported. Shoppers queuing outside keeping two trolleys apart. They were operating a "10 … Continue reading Interesting times …
I went on my old chat site Monday night. It’s a site I used to use a lot a few years ago. It was before Facebook became really popular and I used to chat most nights. But as with all things, it changed, became a bit of a hunting ground for not so nice persons … Continue reading Birthday and other things …
Quiz-nite, last night was fun. R*** is on respite, so Mrs H was allowed out. Didn’t win either the quiz or the bingo, but one of our ‘team’ won the football card, so not a total washout. There was some wine left, when we got home, so Mrs H drank that and I … Continue reading New Camera and things
The 'no drink in the house' project went as well as could be expected. We both did four days. I did go out on Wednesday for a couple, when S**** came up for his drama rehearsal and had a whiskey when we got back, but nothing in the the house until Friday. Did I … Continue reading So….it’s now the weekend

Quiz-nite on Tuesday went very well. That ‘spare part’ feeling had dissipated somewhat. The two people, in the group that don’t usually acknowledge my presence, did this week. That made it a very pleasant evening. However …… getting home at 23:45, and then deciding to have a brandy (or two) is not a good … Continue reading Tired and working too hard …… (my excuse)
The cold is at that stage, where it doesn’t know whether to get worse or not. Mrs H keeps asking me if I’ve had any paracetamol. To be honest, they make the whiskey taste really bad. I’m glad the smarmy one went out of Masterchef tonight. I though he was going to start … Continue reading Bleaugh !!!!
When I say that that the whiskey is all gone, I mean nearly all gone. Just a smidgen left, of which I am sampling now. If the medics have their way, it will be all gone. Question: how does making alcohol more expensive for me, stop the pissheads from buying the stuff in Europe, … Continue reading Whiskey is all gone .. Shock .. Horror (but don’t tell the Dr)
