Ahh, I mind of them well. My favorite smoke back in t'day when I did. Packed it in back in 1987.Gitanes
Some rodent has dined on Vanessa's wiring. Result is she's feeling a bit flat.
Well, just so you can't complain when you get here. Daily temperature for the next two days is set to be around the 4°- 6° mark. This doesn't take into account the expected windchill.
I used to have knitting machine parts with tiny screws and if one dropped it was a problem. Nobody was allowed to move unless on hands and knees with a torch head down and arse up looking for it as tiny screws could travel a surprising distance from dropping point. It must have looked a bit strange to anybody coming into the workshop to see nothing but backsides.
A touch of grease on the end of a finger usually worked to pick the bits up.
God, school sports. How I hated it.
I was the last one to be chosen for cricket and basketball. Catching dyspraxia. Known as kack handed in those days.
But rugby was another matter altogether. A lethal second row.
But athletics I could make a difference, I was a middle distance performer with strong performance in the high and long jump.
Seems there's a few of us.
I had the weight to make a decent back, but I wasn't great & we didn't play that much. Athletics I was useless at. What a shame we never did cycling as a sport.
