The day I go into the loft and retrieve the boxes! Christmas decorations...I hate Christmas.
Anyway, what's happening in the world on this rainy day, well I turned on the news and heard that Tiger Woods is having trouble with his driving, but this time on the road not the golf course.
Speculation about domestic arguments and storming out of the house after a row and parking his Cadillac up a tree are rife, but let's wait for the facts shall we...... no, OK.
There will be a glut of jokes about driving etc. appearing, and it would be easy to jump on the bandwagon, well you know me, I'm above all that so let me offer Tiger some advice, just keep your head down.
What else is happening, well Prince Charles is visiting the disaster stricken area of Cumbria - as if those poor people hadn't had enough happen, now they have to put up with all that security and press. And I see that in America, the gate crashers at President Obama's state dinner did get to meet him, makes it worthwhile then! How many Secret Service men are packing their bags and being sent to Fargo I wonder?
After the dog evacuated his stomach contents onto the hall carpet, we had it professionally cleaned yesterday, and it now smells of bubble gum - not sure what the chemicals actually do, but to make your hallway smell of bubble gum is a plus for me.
Oh well, can't keep putting it off, better go and get the ladder sorted for loft entry...if I survive I will see you back here tomorrow, same time (give or take) same channel, same old rubbish.
On this day in 1968, Enid Blyton died. There has always been some suspicion that her death was not totally natural and a relative of mine, Archie Whipple, spent many years trying to prove that Blyton was poisoned. He enlisted the help of his chums, who were known as The Five Finder Outers, they were Fatty, Larry, Daisy, Pip and Bets oh and don't forget their little Scottie dog, Buster.
Archie and the Finder Outers devoted many hours to the mystery only to be arrested for making a bloody nuisance of themselves!
And that's a fact!
