We built this village on a Trad. Arr. tune
- I actually moved into my house 11 years ago today.
- Thanks to a late visit from the postman, I’ve now reached the worrying heights of owning 400 DVDs
Also, it’s Half Man Half Biscuit in Frome tonight.
Housing Admin will be disbanding at the end of the current season. After 14 seasons my skittles career will be coming to a premature end.
Tonight was the fastest match of the season so far, it was all over by 9:30.
We took a straight 5-0 win, and were 40 pins or so in the lead by the end. Housing Admin took the full 8 points, Bluecoat House went home empty handed.
The next match is the nomination cup semi-final on Wednesday, however I won’t be playing due to a prior committment with Half Man Half Biscuit.
I actually rode a bike today!
I took the 456 round the usual Uni route, and it was probably the muddiest I’ve ever seen it in places. It’s amazing how unfit I feel having not ridden properly for over a month, but it was still good fun.

Frome gig (28 Feb) still has tickets available. Support comes from a Wurzels tribute band, HMHB on stage just after 9pm.
I looked out of the front window and saw sunshine. I stuck my head out the back window and it looked OK, so I sorted out the rucksack, fitted the hipflask cage, got changed into my cycling kit and went to get the bike. However in the 5 minutes that took it had started pouring with rain again.
Back to watching the rugby then.
The 456 is now equipped with a Shimano Hone 22/32/Bash chainset. I’m living dangerously by not getting the BB shell faced, but as and when the first set of bearings fail, I’ll get the shell faced and some replacements fitted, then send the old cups off to Sideways and get the Phil Wood bearings fitted.
I might head out for a ride after the World Cup cycling on telly finishes, provided the weather holds out.
Update: The weather didn’t hold out :(
This week has been a particularly lazy week. Apart from the 14 mile walk on Tuesday, I’ve not done anything energetic mainly due to the seemingly incessant rain. I have done a fair amount of shopping though. I splashed out on a new mobile phone, an Alpkit Fat Airic camping mat, a handful of DVDs from Play and the Woolworths sale, and a new Hone chainset and requisite tools for the 456.
Hopefully next weeks weather will be better and I can get a bit of riding done, although given the fact that the ground is almost totally waterlogged, it’ll no doubt still be a mucky ride even if it isn’t raining.
Hobbes seems to be enjoying the remains of the baked bean juice left on my dinner plate, which seems slightly strange. He’s obviously recoved from the mustard incident which gave him something of an aversion to licking plates.
