• Wow! I think I’ll get a weekly delivery to offset all the carcinogenic things I consume already to be extra cautious 😂

    • The Mrs and I are starting a new fashion trend: don’t buy new Levi’s, peek-a-boo patch them for a lot less and look way cooler (unless you really like cold knees)

    • How the f*%k does Instagram get their targeted advertising so on point & know what might interest me when I barely use it? I’ve not looked at it for months but today I found myself thinking “That’s so cool, I’ll buy that”… and I use ad & tracker blockers everywhere 😮


    • It’s Sunday evening, it’s not raining, and it’s 8°C… must be time for more BBQ. Should have bought more ribs though 😂 (smoking with maple, hickory and oak 😋)

    • Did proper grown-upping this weekend: started on the DIY to get our flat ready for selling starting with fixing the kitchen tap and replacing the loo seat. Then we went to the pub to celebrate 🤣😂


    • I’m not a religious man, but I’ve always felt an attachment to Desmond Tutu. He fought to free my country 🇿🇦 and I was honoured to meet him. As a fellow cricket fan, he’ll appreciate me saying he’s had a fantastic and influential innings. Well done and thank-you Sir 👏🙇

    • Things are becoming quite profound in Woodley

    • Guess what I can see right now. Sweet bugger all!!! My first blackout in the 20+ plus years I’ve lived in the UK. It’s like being back home in 🇿🇦. I feel home sick now 🤣😂 It’s also quite eery seeing the entire neighbourhood in complete darkness.


    • 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)
