|Now for my news, etc.|
Morning all, yes it is still morning here. Just on 1155 and I am sat in the pool room of the pub with a large ale in front of me and one under the belt.
A very hot day and with the windows open on the seaward side of the hotel Mapleton and a window and power point alongside for power. I am also able to see along the venrandah and have a look at all those young ladies and their families who have escaped the big city for a cooler day in the hills. The girls look very nice.
Lots of orders for food in the kitchen and the smell of searing steaks and the sound of chatter and laughter make me wish I was joining in. Even the poker machines are being played will and lots of peeps seem to be winning. Which means less for me to collect. A food special seems to be a fish basket with salad and lots of prawns and shellfish being eaten as well.
Now turned noon and a good afternoon to you all as well.
I went back to my caravan and had bacon and eggs for brekkie with some fresh bread and lots of butter, two cups of tea and then had a snooze. When i woke up I had to do the washing up and clean the caravan. If I had left it in the mess it was in, it would have stunk by the time I get home this afternoon. Need to keep on top of the cleanliness and tidyness with the heat building daily.
About 100 motorcycles have arrived for a quick beer before continuing there Sunday ride. They are having lunch in Kenilworth today, which is about 30 miles from here and down in the valley. Dirt road all the way down the OBI road and valley. Lovely run in fine weather.
OK. I hope that is enough of the proper news for you Colum. I hope that one day you wil be able to come out and I will introduce you to some lousy XXXX beer and a few pleasant evening out with the boys. Hangovers are a problem for wimps, so I never get a hangover. Just a dull head.
