welsh wales

we've been to the caravan to jet wash the flags round the caravan and the decking. 

had dinner at pen-y-bryn, if you're ever in the area, i can highly recommend it, the food is lovely, the place is nice and all the peeps are nice too

They even call it snake oil!


I've not shopped this picture, they're genuinely selling a skin nonsense product called snake oil, charging 40 quid for it & people are buying it.

ready this year

after finding myself stuck several times and crashing into a post in the snow this year i've invested in a set of winter tires & wheels. i've given the wheels a lick over with bouncers looking sweet wheel wax and the tires gtechniq t1. they're all nice in the house, i'm not sure how happy nicky is that they are :)

i plan on giving them another lick at some point then fitting them on friday while i'm off work, i could also do with getting a hair cut.

the tires are continental wintercontact ts 830p. i was torn between these and michelin pilot alpin. i've never had continental tires before so went for them.

jet washer 2.0

jimmy the jet wash died a few weeks back, wife's dad kindly lent me one until i got a new one. i've been trying to convince myself to get a decent one but they've always been that bit to expensive to say OK. 

one of the interweb forums i read is its packed ram jam full of great advice on techniques, methods & kit. everyone raves about kranzle washers. so i did a boat load of reading about em & was settled on getting one when i had finally convinced myself to get a decent one. 

while we were in welsh wales last week there was a post on said interweb forum about a group buy on a k7 or a k10 for an unturndownable price. and today, almost exactly a week to the day later he's arrived. 

its the kranzle k10/122 or hd10/122 depending on who you ask. i also got a dirtblaster spinny pointy jetty lance for cleaning the flags & footpath

not had a chance to fire it up yet as it didn't arrive til after it had gone dark. but fear not, on satdi we wake at dawn to detail!

Man of steel

Just watched it, it's OK. In fact, better than OK, it's pretty good.

Seems to be lots of reboots & remakes about lately (that's probably because I'm getting older) this one is pretty darn good.

Good story, good special effects, what more do you want in a film?

Tomora we have Abraham Lincoln vampire hunter, which I'm quite excited about

Fish & chips from the galleon in rhos on sea for tea then a quick trip to the penny machines at Towyn, tonight we won 2 motorbikes & a football.
Going home tomora for fireworks at mum & dad's.
