    Hey conniving, snivelling, untrustworthy sociopaths (or Conservative and Unionist Party, if yo prefer) If you genuinely had enough "letters" to initiate a (no) confidence vote.. you wouldn't be talking to the press about the possibility, you'd actually be doing it..

    Fucking sick of the UK's constant politicking and their willing, hungry press lackeys reporting every fucking whim as news.

    Have to ingest two more pints of water before I go to bed..

    Had a thought that I should check up on the politics of this nonsensical pretence at a "country" and it's perpetual embarassment that is the government and it's brexit fantasies.. "has anarchy erupted, yet"

    .. "no".. 3 pints of water?

    I gather that even though friends who knew the situation, allowed us to be sat together and left alone, meant they figured an apology might be forthcoming..it wasn't but, it just highlighted how utterly pathetic the perpetrator was or is..

    Not once have I felt affected, weakened or embarrassed by this bawbag.. but tonight he was as uncomfortable, I'll take it.

    It's vaguely interesting to me that tonight I was drinking with someone who once, in my early professional days thought it appropriate to bully me (albeit the success existed only in his head).. can drink with me *alone* (against either of our wishes) without then acknowledging his previous behaviour..

    I always saw his bullying for what it was, I'd been bullied at school (equally unsuccesfully) .. it was pathetic.. how he saw it as a success confounds me..

    Well, that went exactly as expected, the host (my good friend) asks when I'm leaving so that he can make sure he chats to me for at least 30 minutes before I leave..

    Then doesn't come along to chat until I put my jacket on... Almost 2 hours after I intended to leave..

    Guess which of us has to explain my later return to my wife.. if it helps,it probably is won't be the one who carries her sympathies.

    On the train through to Edinburgh to attend a friend's work leaving night and genuinely trying to work out if this, in mid-November is my first night out of the year..

    ..would be a pretty sad state of affairs if it is, especially given it'll be cut short by hangover avoidance manoeuvres to preserve well-being for tomorrow's craft beer festival..

    step 1 is going to be the trickiest, avoiding being thrust into big rounds by friends who I've not seen for years. Attack might be my best defence.

    Got woken at 7am by the sound of an explosion/loud crash..

    I immediately leapt out of bed and rushed to check that our baby and our dog were ok, then sequentially swept every room in the house to ensure IT equipment, beer fridge, boiler etc. were in tact.. checked outside to ensure that our neighbours' houses hadn't burst into flames..

    .. over-filled fucking IKEA suction cup shower basket had fallen off the wall.. yet a-fucking-gain..

    Second response in from Edinburgh's Crossborders.. though in fairness to other brewers, I am still in the process of contacting them.. these are just exceptionally quick responses.

    First response comes in from Stirling's own Fallen Brewery within 30 minutes of sending them an email.. *hattip*

    Going to a craft beer festival in Edinburgh this weekend! First as a though I'm not anticipating it being any different from previous festivals.. very few beers are going to be off limits..

    However, to be prepared I'm going through the brewery and beer list and pre-determining what is and isn't on the table..

    .. glad I have a beer at hand or I'd be salivating more than my teething baby!

    Spent 5 hours in the kitchen today, actually cooking and prepping.. not just loitering.

    Introducing our baby to kale this week with a nice butternut squash, purple sweet potato, garden pea and kale puree.

    Made a beetroot, carrot, apple, pineapple, mango, cucumber & pomegranate juice.

    Pickled some cucumbers which we'll be able to eat in about 5 weeks time..

    Then made this for dinner..smokey maple marinated baked tofu & 5-spice fried rice with vegetables.. tasty!

    Just watched 'Outlaw King' on netflix and am all full of emotions.. I thought it was really well done, seemed pretty authentic and Chris Pine did an admirable job at not over-playing the Scottish accent..

    Possibly if we had been taught more about our own country's history at school then I'd have spotted more flaws (only 2 very minor ones)..

    Without spoilers, it did seem a strange place in the story of The Bruce to end the movie..I do hope means there will be a sequel.

    .. indyref2 now, please

    My baby girl turns 6 months old tomorrow and if I understand the terms and conditions correctly we will no longer be able to return her.. at least not without onerous paperwork and probably some outlandish admin fee.. so probably for the best all round that we decided to keep her.

    .. and to celebrate we're moving her into her own room and me back into my bed!
