Thursday 21st December 2017
Fancy Dress day.  Up early, dog walked, papers fetched.  Loading up car with stuff.   Going as the Fab Four (because there's four blokes in our team, it's the 50th Anniversary of Sgt Pepper and I'm nearly fifty etc.etc.).   If the stars are aligned etc.etc.

Got a letter from inland revenue - I owe a fair chunk of unpaid tax it would appear -fancy sending that a fortnight before Xmas - our souls.  Did a bit up in the attic.  Went to see JBs band at Rocester Football Club.  Good support band in Devilz Jukebox I thought
