In that London.  Up at 3:45.  Dog walked, showered, at Derby Station and on the 5.19 train to that London.   Seminar at 9am.

How odd is this bit of architecture in the middle of offices all over the shop.

  On train back at 2:30, home for a bit after 5pm.  Bit of a nightmare on the train as it had two trainloads of people following some poor soul throwing themselves under the East Coast Line's train so we had a ton of Geordies along for the ride - bedlam.  Tea then dog walk, Down to lotty, barrowed up some more wood chippings for paths on number 13.   Cleared out another bed ready for Autumn Caulis going in.   Banged a load of lime down ready.

Tulips coming soon on number 7.

Peas looking tidy on number 13

Peas are coming along nicely considering how damn cold it's been.

Friday 22nd April 2016
Still knackered but woke without alarm at 5:30 (Jack Reacher'esque).  Dog walked, papers fetched, caulis outside hardening before going in tonight.  Went down lotty after work and got some cauliflowers in.

Saturday 23rd April 2016
Up early.  Papers fetched, dog walked.  7.50am off to that Wales for a weekend in Llandudno.  Got there and parked up by 10.40 - £4.50 for 4 hours!   Never mind.  Walked to the end of the pier - saw a dogfish reeled in, then went round the shops then to the Palladium for lunch.

Went and had a look at the hotel.  Then went to have a look at the Great Orme.  Fantastic views up there and the missus enjoyed climbing up from the car park to the cafe and what have you at the top.   Had a coffee, boss had an ice cream then back to town.  Parked in the side street near the hotel and got checked in.  Out again for tea - very nice.   Bed about 10pm - very tired.

Sunday 24th April 2016
Up early - no dog to walk.  Bit of a walk on the prom.  Then brekoo.  Then packing up ready to check out.  Then more shopping.  Then a bit of drive along the coast saw the Little Orme, then Penrhyn Bay,  Then another little town that I'll have to work out where it is!   Set off back proper and on way home stopped off at Cheshire Oaks designer outlet at Ellesmere Port for more retail therapy for the missus.   Talk about busy!   Back home about 4pm ish,  Dog pleased to see us - two dog walks before going out for tea at Okeover Arms.  Cracking.  Bed Early - Game of Thrones Series 6 coming!

Monday 11th April 2016
Up at 5.20.  Had to get Lucy up for a shower at 5.30 so did some stuff before taking pooch a walk - had a shower, cleaned teeth. Dog walked, papers fetched and back by 6.15 so had a quick shower then woke everyone up as you do...    Into the office before 8am.   Loads on.  What a day, back home for 6.15.   Tea then out with the dog.   Back home did a bit in the greenhouse - planted some runner beans not tried Crusader before will see how they get on.  Potted some Aldi Summer cauli's we got for a shiny poond.   Then inside for telly night while missus and Lucy were out.  Watched Houdini and Doyle which is most enjoyable telly lite of the litest order.  Then watched another episode of Vinyl which you can see disaster just floating along like an iceberg ready to inflict damage on a massive scale!!

Tuesday 12th April 2016
Up at 5.20 again - funny how quickly you adapt to British Summer Time (not that you'd think it were Summer).  Had to go early again as Lucy wanted to get up at 6.15 to catch up on homework - bless her.   Took bosskat and Lucy to Nottingham Arena for 5 Seconds of Summer or somesuch Australian Tat.   Back home for midnight.

Wednesday 13th April 2016
Up dead early.  Dog walked, papers fetched.  Into the office before 8am. Funny day at the office but got some things sorted out which I think is good.  Lost 1.5lb at group somehow.  Back home for about 5:30.  Dog walked.  Did some potting up in the greenhouse.  Tried to sort the washing machine out but there's something up with it for sure.   Bed about 10pm.

Thursday 14th April 2016
Up at 5:30.   Still got a mega sore throat.   Short dog walk due to it chucking it down with rain.  Got papers, got home, watered stuff then off to work.  In before 8am as usual.  Busy as flip all day.  Got home 6.15ish.  Top tea then out with the dog.  Then did a bit of greenhouse, then off to Aldi with the boss, then another dog walk.  Then first episode of the Tunnel: sabotage - every bit as dark as the last series.  Bed a bit late after a drop of Bourbon.  Slept better though

Friday 15th April 2016
Woah overlaid until 6am.  Quick dog walk, papers, brekko, dropped some shoes into the recycling bins at Sainsbobs on the way to work. Got car juiced up.  Into the office a few minutes after 8am for a change.  Busy stressful day again.  Down to supplier and home for a bit after 5pm.

Saturday 16th April 2016
Busy day of dog walking, greenhouse and allotmenteering.   Got  everything mowed round the plot - the old petrol lawnmower in me shed started marvellously with a bit of encouragement, Enough charge in the strimmer to go round both plots too - so all good stuff - did a bit of weeding on number 7 as well.     Derby won so that was good news too.

Sunday 17th April 2016
Up early.  Dog walked.  Did another two sessions down at the allotment.  Got peas in, got some broad beans in so a not bad start.  Got another bed sorted out.  Got some of the paths between the beds done too.    Have managed to watch all of the Tunnel: Sabotage in the space of a week - excellent TV.

Monday 4th April 2016 to Sunday 10th April 2016

Monday 4th April 2016
Up at 5:29!   Dog walked, very mild, very damp. Got papers and got into work nice and early.  Back home about 6pm.  Tea.  Dog walk.  Fitted a new loo seat - why is it that one of the nuts always comes off easy and the other won't budge - can an old loo seat conspire to lull you into a false sense of security???   I don't know.  Watched two episodes of the Tunnel which is a right wierd bit of telly.  Bed late.

Tuesday 5th April 2016
Didn't get up until 5.45am so a little bit behind so far.  Nice dry, mild day that'll do for me.   Took pooch a walk, got papers, got into the office for just gone 8am.   Busy day, home for about 6pm.  Tea then walked pooch up to Sprinkshill Wood and back.  Bluebells not out yet.  Back home did a bit in the greenhouse - got some butternut squash and pumpkins planted and some assorted sunflowers to go with the half a dozen that are already ticking along quite nicely.

Watched another episode of the Tunnel and Stewart Lees Comedy Vehicle which was his worst of the series but still funny in places.   Bed a bit after 10pm

Wednesday 6th April 2016
Up at 5.45. Drizzley - I thought a frost was expected so had heater on in greenhouse and it wasn't needed.  Such is life.  Dog walked, papers fetched, all good stuff.  In the office for 7.50am.  V Busy day.  Got out of the office about 5:30, nipped to group, half a pound off which after going out twice at the weekend isn't a bad result - digging on Sunday must have helped.  2 more episodes of The Tunnel - really whacko telly - very compelling,  not known anything like it for putting the viewer on edge.  Bed before 10pm

Thursday 7th April 2016
Over slept.  Didn't get up until 6.11am.  Shorter dog walk, into the office before 8am.   Cripes.   Busy day, meeting with the top brass!   Back home a bit late, tea, dog walk, did a bit in the greenhouse all good stuff.

Friday 8th April 2016.
Up early, dog walked, papers fetched, into office before 8am.  Came out a bit early so pooch could get a decent walk before we went to the Ketch for me mum's do.  Mixed grill - marvellous.   Back home, nipped to Aldi for some firewater got some caulis, chillis and tomato plants that had been reduced to a pound a go.  Not sure how many of the tomato plants will survive - we'll see.

Saturday 9th April 2016
Up early.  Pooch walked.  Messed about in greeenhouse.  Took some tat to the recycling centre.  Watched a bit of golf.   Lots of dog walks but didn't get a great deal else done?   Rained in the afternoon.

Sunday 10th April 2016
Woke up to a frost, bugger.   Put heater on in greenhouse, took pooch a walk.  Went to lotty for two sessions, more digging done getting beds ready for stuff and what have you.  Got some more spuds in.   Got home about 5pm.  Tea then another dog walk then settled down for the Masters, went to bed with Spieth looking like he was nailed on to win, woke up and found out Danny Willett had won - that'll be another thing the Yorkshire mob will be droning on about seeing as he comes from Sheff.  Well done though young man - put the ball in the right places and had a cracking last round.
