Monday 10th December 2018
Up at 4 o'clock, taking Lucy back to Nottingham Uni first thing.  So got papers and dog walked early then dropped Lucy off at her digs at 6.50,  into work at  7:30am everything running on rails(ish).  Review at work, could have been better could have been worse.  Never mind.  Rehearsal after work sounding something like.  Back home a bit after 7pm.  Tea, dog walks, bed. Knackered.

Tuesday 11th December 2018
Up early doors.  Dog walkeds, papers fetched.  Into office nice and early.  All good stuff.

Wednesday 12th December 2018 
The usual, papers in for a change.  Nothing really to report.

Thursday 13th December 2018
Up early, dog walked, papers fetched.   All the usual stuff.  Rehearsal after work - lots of singers really going to be good shames it's for just three songs but hey-ho.  Went to Mark's group at Hilltop on way home as not going to group on Saturday morning after going to the Izaak Walton on Friday Night - very poor scheduling by Missus Siddall.  any road 2lbs off.

Friday 14th December 2018
Woke up late - 5:50am all a rush but even this late on the poxy papers haven't arrived.  Into work on time.  I pondered having a bacon buttie all the way to work and in the end argued myself out of it.  I am having stone award for xmas whether I like it or not!

Monday 3rd December 2018 to Sunday 9th December 2018

Monday 3rd December 2018
Woke up super early but made me self stay in bed until 5:10 so all good stuff.  Into office for just after 7am.  Big walk, delivered Village Newsletters.  Did a bit in the attic. all good.

Tuesday 4th December 2018
Up early, the usual, car scraped, dog walked, papers fetched.  Work early doors.  Out of work late again.  Such is life.    A bit in the attic, usual big walk (2miles and a bit).  Dog had three mini-evening walks.

Wednesday 5th December 2018 
Up early.  Pi$$ing it down with rain.  Dog walked in her coat.  Papers not in.  Came home got ready for work, went and fetched papers.  Into office for 7.25, going to leave early as am going Xmas Party tonight for first time in many years.   Found a drum tab for Shoot to Thrill so going to learn it to be bob on.  Works do at the Roundhouse, Derby so left at 3.30pm, on bus at 5:30, first pint in the Brunswick at 6:15!  Ace.  Going to have a bad head in the morning but heydily hodily.   Cracking entertainment and good company.  Thoroughly enjoyed it apart from the food!!

Thursday 6th December 2018
Got up about 20 minutes later than normal.  Not feeling as bad as I might have - two pints of orange squash before bed does the trick!  Papers fetched, wee dog walked and into the office for 7.30 how ace am I?  No rehearsal again tonight so that's good.

Friday 7th December 2018 
Not much to report.  Work early, left early.  Collected Lucy from her digs at Nottingham Trent and brought her home using a cunning new route that missed Derby out altogether. All good.

Saturday 8th December 2018
Bloody wind howled all night so gave up and got up at 4am.    Such is life.  Little dog got many walks! Went to group, scraped another half pound loss.  Did a bit of police volunteering as they are doing a recruitment drive on the market place.  Ashbourne Market is almost dead so very little footfall unfortunately.   Did a bit up in the drum-attic. All good stuff.   Went to bed at 7pm cause I was knackered.   Lots of flashing lights for the second time in a fortnight would find out another tragic fatality in the morning.

Sunday 9th December 2018
It turned out the  flashing lights were there because a poor girl was stuck in her car at the ford had got swept away and drowned.  Absolutely horrible.   Cast a shadow for the whole day.  I think the people in the hi-viz in the field were level with where the car was carried downstream to.   The ford is forty foot in front of the red fire service vehicle on the right of the picture. 

In afternoon I went up the attic to get Xmas lights down.   Phil borrowed an industrial ladder from a mate and we got the solar panels cleaned, the  upstairs windows cleaned and got the Xmas lights up.  Xmas pub quiz up at the Shoulder,  Osmaston.   Bed a bit late and a bit drunk.  I am stupid.
