And he managed to get hold of a Dukla Prague away kit

Hobbes now has permission from the vet to venture outside the house again. He seemed somewhat reluctant at first, but once I pushed him out of the door he set off on a tour of his favourite sleeping spots. I suspect he won’t come home until breakfast time tomorrow.

On a more manly note, I bought myself a new pressure washer today to replace the one that died a few weeks ago, and proceeded to annihilate the moss on the garden path. Tomorrow should hopefully see the garden finally finished, only 9.5 years after I moved into the house.

    Yay for Hobbes.

    I think my pressure washer is dead as well :(

    Get yourself down Halfords, all their pressure washers are half-price at the moment.

  3. Simon says:

    I’m going to do without.

  4. Father says:

    Can I have mine back now?

  5. rjw says:

    Not just now. How about tomorrow?

  6. Father says:

    As there has been no update, can I inform all my regular viewers that the garden was finished by 2.30 GMT today, Saturday, the 3rd September 2005. 3 trips to the tip and relay 20 slabs, dispersing spare gravel.
    But I still did not get my pressure washer back!

  7. Father says:

    And who are ‘Dukla Praha’?

    I am looking forward to drinking a large G&T out on the decking next time we visit!

  9. Steve says:

    I have been reliably informed that the Dukla Prague away colours are in fact identical to the Leeds 1976 home colours!

  10. rjw says:

    Yellow body, maroon sleeves?

    “All I want for Christmas is a 1976 Leeds home kit” doesn’t quite have the same ring to it…

  11. Steve says:

    Maroon and yellow doesn’t sound like Leeds does it? It was Smudge who told me and we had been drinking!

    “can I inform all my regular viewers that the garden was finished by 2.30 GMT today, Saturday, the 3rd September 2005. ”

    Is there a plaque to commemorate this remarkable occasion?

  13. Father says:

    Just a few blood spots and sweat stains show that I was there!

    I know this is terribly unfashionable in the consumerist world in which we live, but you can get pressure washers mended ;-)

  15. rjw says:

    I’m not sure mine was worth mending. It was almost all plastic, and the pump jobber had split in half and therefore leaked quite impressively :)

  16. Mike D says:

    Ah, OK. I couldn’t bear to chuck my Karcher, fortunately HSS mended it for a very reasonable sum ;-)
