Not much to report, up early dog walked papers fetched. Work left at 3.50 to go and get hold of a product for work but could not find it in local supermarkets. Went to B&M and got a cover for the Chiminea for £1.35 or something like and a cover for the fireput for £1 All good. Bed about 11pm after taking next doors dog for a walk - got some strength has Bruno.

Got up at 5.40 and then only just so about 10 minutes later than usual for work. Such is life. Got home a bit late with one thing and another. After tea took pooch a walk then set about sorting out the watering system for the green house - needs a bit of PTFE tape to sort it I think - a job for wee Phil. Got meter readings done - went onto U-switch.com as our current tariff finished at end of August - it goes up £6 a month for the next year (although we're currently £20 in credit?). Anyway, U-switch says I can save £280 by switching to A, £279 by switching to B etc.etc. What a load of cobblers these savings are all based on us reverting to the standard i.e. most expensive tariff with our current provider. If I pick the tariff that goes up by £6 a month (bearing in mind we're in credit) with our current provider nothing on U-Switch can touch it. The only difference is that U-Switch would get £40 if we did swap.

Up late at 5:50. Dog walked papers fetched, still into office for 7.40am so not end of the world. Left bang on time for a change went to Marchington to pick up a couple of items we'd won at the auctions. Really pleased so far with the boombox and some outdoor storage chests the missus wanted.

Up early, the usual, did a bit of pre-hols preparation with WD40! All good stuff. Million jobs tonight though - lawns, roof rack, water bottles for plants etc. etc

Hols in that Wales. Got there for about 2pm in afternoon - a steady enough run. Got settled in, got some bait dug. Tea was nice from butty van. Went fishing on Church Bay main beach think I got a single dogfish then called it a day.
Saturday 5th August 2017
Dog came in at silly o'clock in the morning so out for an early walk. Off to Holyhead with the missus shopping - we had already planned to do a BBQ for our Andrew and his mate Carl so shopping was essential. Dug a bit of bait - BBQ went really well. We had planned to go over to Lligwy to fish at night time but there was a big music festival on there so we chose to go to Cemlyn instead and it was rubbish. Wish we'd gone to Flagpole again or Penhros really. Never mind back home for about midnight.

Up early with dog again. Weather forecast to go crappy and it did - 12 hours of rain. As this was only bad weather of the stay it wasn't too bad, really!
