Can't believe it's pay day again so soon. Amazeballs. Up early. Did some patching up in the shower room but in reality it needs another coat in a lot of places so that's tonight's job. Busy day in the office, all good. Then took me dad, cousin and cousin-in-law to Thornbridge Brewery for a tour and it was reet good. £7.50 and I thought great value for two pints of expensive beer, glasses and all sorts. Reet good. Back home for 8.45pm and into decorating mode again. Slapped another coat on the bits that were a bit naff and I think it will do for now. Lesson to be learned is not to use old paint.
Up and about at 5am. Shave, shower get ready. Bins all emptied etc.etc. Into the office for 7am - cooking on gas. Missus has sent me a photo she took while walking dog on Church Bay beach only a blooming seal! Apparently RSPCA had been out to it the previous day which is what the blue spray is all about. She said it waddled off to the sea so hopefully found it's mother.
Finished work at 3pm and drove to Wales - took ruddy ages queuing all over the place. If you set off at 3pm avoid Stoke is what I've learned - will do Congleton way next time I reckon. Went fishing in the evening with Lucy's best mate's family - I chaperoned em to the mum catching two dogfish and poor old Chum (Jack) catching nowt. Oh dear, never mind.

How's this for odd! Drove all that way to Wales and then drove back to Conwy (well as passenger) the following day to play at Conwy Golf Club with the Chester Golfing Society that Paul is a member of. Cracking fun, played great first 8 holes with a birdie and a couple of pars then played wrong ball on 9th and it was downhill pretty much from there! Never mind gorgeous course in great nick.
|Pictures don't really give you an idea of how big the hill in the background is|
|Think this was where my round went to bits - had played wrong ball and got a 2 shot penalty|
|In the background is an amazing hill that has cliffs and all sorts going on|
|Is there anywhere prettier than Church Bay? Don't think so.|

Drove back home - wouldn't have minded an extra day but not to be. Stopped at Newborough Forest on the way back.

Ruddy clocks gone back so first thing was to change all the analogue clocks. Then set about finishing the painting off in the shower room so, a little bit of extra on the walls here and there and then painted the wood work including painting the little cupboardy thing that sits under the sink which came out grand.
