• I was just reminiscing with Mrs S about the food I can remember my father regularly cooking for me, it was “French toast” or as Mrs S knows it “eggy bread”. My sister and I ate it with lemon juice, cinnamon and sugar, whilst my dad ate it with All Gold tomato sauce.


    • I’ve been really impressed with Amazon Prime’s rugby coverage so far this autumn. Proper rugby camera angles, traditional commentary and great graphics. 👏


    • This time yesterday it was light outside. Today it’s dark. This clock changing malarkey still annoys the heck out of me. I really wish the EU directive came into effect this year and the UK followed but it was shelved… and we probably wouldn’t have followed “cos Brexit”.


    • Today’s BBQ-whilst-I-work tasty tasty goodness: beef short ribs 😋

    • Beer festivals always have the healthiest food… Biscoff and Ferrero Rocher donuts 😋 On par with the pulled pork donuts we had at the last beer festival 😂

    • Mrs S asked me to get the spare wine glasses out of the loft today (I broke one of the last marching pair the other evening 🤭). This led to an unplanned major clear out of our glasses and mugs cupboards from which we tossed 27 glasses, 22 were beer glasses 😬, and 6 mugs.


    • We’re over a year into the COVID-19 pandemic and I’m still surprised that companies haven’t capitalised on this for the advertising opportunity that it is: people are literally wearing ad spaces on their faces, at eye level, which you can’t miss. Ka-ching!!💰💰


    • We are definitely the oldest peeps in the village (drinking at a student bar in Reading because it’s sunny, cheap and open to the public)

    • I’ve lived in the UK for over 21 years and I’m only now getting a mobile phone contract. PAYG has always been perfect for my needs but the recent price increases means it’s no longer the most affordable option.


    • I needed an eraser today so I dug out my 30 year old pencil case. It’s pretty much as it was when I matriculated, even with the pen I wrote my finals with (the one with the scooby wire, and it still works), my house colour badges, and even my emergency “Coke & Bar-one” R5 coin.

    • Oooo look at me drinking a cask beer for the first time this year!!! And it’s made even better by the glorious sunshine ☀️

    • I recently switched my Siri voice to “South African (female)” and when I used it earlier today she responded to my “Hey Siri” with “Ja?”. I’m looking forward to her starting to use the South African times of “right now”, “now”, “now now” and “just now” in her responses 🤣😂


    • I thought I’d run out of screen wash but it turns out I have a small rodent problem 😕

    • One down, one to go. Oxford AstraZeneca was the 💉 de jour.

    • Banksy popped over to Reading last weekend and left this on the wall of the old jail where Oscar Wilde was imprisoned.
