Monday 26th June 2017 to Sunday 2nd July 2017

Monday 26th June 2017
Back to reality.  In the office early doors after the usual dog walk, papers and watering the lotty.  Busy day in the office then back home a bit after 5pm

Tuesday 27th June 2017
The usual - watered lotty, fetched papers with the dawg, into office early doors.  Over to Darley Dale to do a bit of watering.  Picked Lucy up from school on way home.  Tea then got lawns mowed as the weather is on the turn!

Wednesday 28th June 2017 
Up early doors,   no need to water as it's been chucking it down in the night.  Dog walked papers fetched into office back home for 6.15 after getting the good lady some flower on way home.

Thursday 29th June 2017
Hell's teeth been married 26 years, 26 years.   Up early dog walked, papers fetched, cleaned up dog sick on carpet, writ on the card, got ready and into work for 7.40 - the internal alarm clock failed a bit as didn't arise until 5.40am!   Went to the Cross for tea - all good stuff.

Friday 30th June 2017
Just the usual I think.  Did a couple of hours of work on

Saturday 1st July 2017
Crikey half of the year gone already!  Blimey O'Reilly.  Took dog out fetched papers then over to Belper for dog grooming and brekkie.  Then lots of little drum related jobs made an 18" o-ring out of an old bass drum head, learnt the art of removing the snares on a Premier 2000 snare drum then putting a new snare head on - not as easy as it ought to be!!    Found that snare drum is only 41 years old 5th April 1976 is printed inside it.

Set up the Coleman Instant Dome 5 that we are going to use next weekend up as well.  I didn't like that it's two skins an inner and an outer but it didn't take more than 5 minutes to set up and I can use it for wales and get a bed in it properly which will be a big improvement on the Instant Dome 3 which I ought to sell thinking about it.

Sunday 2nd July 2017
Took pooch out.  Did three hours at lotty.  Cross for Dinner, load of slabs down in the evening.  All good stuff.

Monday 19th June 2017 
Up before 5am, Down to Lotty  to water - wasn't first person there so a bit disappointed then got papers and then into office for 7.30.  Got to see if I can get an emergency dental appointment.  Got an emergency, problem with a tooth at the back - needs root treatment apparently so two 45 minutes sessions to look forward and a course of antibiotics in the meantime.  Oh Joy.   Did some work at home.   Went down to lotty about 9pm thinking I'd have a clear run at watering but there were loads of people there so used water out of the IBC in the main.  Did a bit of tidying up on number 7 as well.

Up at 5am.  Dog walk, papers fetched.  Decent day at work.   Back home a little after 5pm.   Didn't do much else as tiredness is catching up on me.   Went to bed at 9:30.

Longest day - it's all downhill from here into darkness!  Got up at 5am took pooch to lotty and we got everything watered so I don't have to go tonight.  Got a small tub of strawberries while I was there but forgot to bring back a couple of courgettes that I did spy on me rounds.   Never mind.

Got papers and got into work for just after 7.30.   All good stuff.  Over to me mum and dad's after work to do a load of watering.  Dropped some strawberries off for Uncle Micheal on way home - everything tickety boo,

Loaded kayaks up for transportation back home, then went and dug some bait for the evening session.  Vic and myself fished the cafe beach but nowt doing there so went to bottom of the ramp and fished off there - both of us getting a small bass which were both returned
