    Could be; not the kind of car you'd want to be taking out in gritty slush

    Back in 2007 or 2008 I was down The Harp on the day the bankers got their bonuses, and a group thereof were standing near me discussing what they were planning to do with their newfound disposable income. I overheard a woman in the group who can't have been thirty saying "Yeah, I was thinking of going for the Aston too". It's nice to have options

          Afternoon all

          Greetings from sunny Sofia where its 21 degrees and sunny.

          Had a nice stay in the Hilton Garden Inn at T2 followed by an early start to get our 0745 flight. Just arrived at the Intercontinental Sofia and I have to say, so far, it's lovely. Very nice room.


            I bunked off early for lunch and popped over to my formerly local bank branch, where I was able to pay the incorrectly shaped cheque in at the machine

            And then down to Sainsbury's where the shopping was done just ahead of the lunchtime rush. I also remembered to take a couple of bags for the clothes recycling, one of which I've been repeatedly tripping over for the last few weeks, so that's a weight off the mind

            Home, and lunch: sausages in finger rolls

            But it was leftover cold sausages from earlier in the week, not the M&S ones I like for that purpose. I need to walk down the hill into town some time and do an M&S shop

            And now it's suddenly got very dark outside and torrential rain has muscled in alongside the already strong winds

                We've had a stroll about and looked at a few of the churches about. Now having a fortifying G&T while contemplating our route back to the hotel for a freshen up before dinner.


                  Timesheet time. Made it to now with multiple coughing fits, aching joints and a 5 minute snooze earlier that lasted an hour.

                    Ech. Plumber is fixing my shower, sitting on edge of bath with most of his bum crack exposed. Why is it always blokes that do that?

                      Timesheet done

                      It's turned quite sunny again now, with lots of big white fluffy bits, after the darkness and torrents earlier. A little while ago there were no fewer than eight pigeons browsing about on the lawn, along with the two magpies that seem to be nesting in one of the conifers, the blackbird couple from the hedge, and one of the squirrels
