Spuds & carrots - miles better than anyone else's
my blog my rules :-)

we were having a 5 bird roast, but unfortunately it was still frozen when it came to being cooked, so we did our ham instead. we've cooked & munched the 5 bird and very nice it was too

Busiest farmers ever

Every man & his dog was at the farmers today. Took half an hour to get from the road to the parking space. No more people please, its too busy now! Hot hog roast lady brought her fit sister (maybe she's not her sister, but im never one to let facts get in the way of a fantasy!) along.
5 bird roast looks amazing, panchetta, chorizo, wild boar parma ham, other hams, bacon, cheese, apples, veggies, pastrami and pies are all winners too.

1 hour to drive 5 miles

I love traffic jams!

425 miles and only 2 traffic jams. once on the way about 5 mins from home and the second in the same place on the way home. AGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!

Dream about 3 balls

It's 3 balls (me, phil & finlay in that order) on the dream. Not sure why but this place keeps on drawing me/us back. Never been here in the daytime, but its pretty decent at night

finlay's version of this picture is miles better than mine.

Another sweet ride

108 grand starting price.
Sales, land of the free! I still say I wouldn't swap jobs with a salesman, not even for a V10 R8.
If his car is this nice, imagine what his house is like!
Parked it next to the fancy TT too, Mr TT was no doubt feeling all smug, best car on the carpark vibe, then up rocks this thing to shake things up a bit :-)

manchester town

we've spent the afternoon in town today. we've been to the science museum, for some food & to see eric & susan.

MOSI was OK, great big chunks of it need some serious money spending on it - the air & space hall is dull & dark. there is a replica of a train that ran from the MOSI site (before it was MOSI) to agecroft power station, we went on that and how can i say this without sounding like a mr grumpy? its not as good as the one at haigh hall!

we had dinner in picolino's which was pretty nice. a nice big sharing antipasto to start with, i had calzoni. wife had risotto, weeman had margherita pizza & miriam had lasagne. then after dropping miriam off we called to see eric & susan & ann

walton park & cheshire food festival

the food festival sucked ass, it was tiny and dull. the park was much better. they've even got a little zoo. weeman's been a bit off colour for the last couple of days but seeing the animals cheered him up a treat. he's started cock-a-doodle-doo-ing which is pretty funny.

to describe it as the ultimate north west anything is a bit much

shit parking

if you're so shit at parking that you can't even get between the lines of a parent & child space then its probably time you sent your license back to Kellogg's.

ramada gatwick (crawley)

i've been on a bit of a mission with work this week, i stayed in a grim hotel in crawley on tuesday night easily the worst hotel i have ever stayed in! i'm no hotel snob, im happy with a clean room, a good shower and a working loo but £75 a night for this is a joke. dirty thieving cockney bastards

the ramada website describes it as " steeped in history and character and now boasts of 84 high quality refurbished bedrooms with modern facilities including WiFi in all bedrooms " 

STAY AWAY, its a hole

here are a couple of snaps from it. 

blood? no, not on the dancefloor but on the curtains!

grim shit just outside my bedroom door
