There are supposed to be breaks between every paragraph on these posts but Blogger seems to be playing silly buggers with me. Forgive the squashed-upness and if anyone knows of a solution, please let me know!!
My resolution to post every day didn't last very long!! Anyway, I'm here today so you can all (the three of you, that is) stop worrying...
All's going well with not drinking. Still not a drop touched although the temptation has been there. Herbal tea is now the order of the day and we seem to be gorging ourselves on the stuff! We've got all kinds in our little stock cupboard - which is actually the worktop - from green tea to blackberry and nettle. We'll be aficionados soon!
As most of you (two of the three of you) that read this blog will know, it has been raining down like the piss here for about sixteen hours now. I ventured out earlier with the bastards to let them have a run. F normally takes them out but she's working much hours now so I braved their pulling and farting about and headed off towards the river with a pocket full of poo bags and more than a little trepidation, as they have a habit of totally ignoring me!
Sasha, who's the old lady of the pack, is left off the lead to wander on. The others, including Rosie Rotbag (who, at 18ish weeks, is almost Sasha's size) have to wait until we get to the river. Now Buddy loves the water and even when it was below freezing during the holidays, F took the big dogs the the reservoir and Buddy still dived in - he is quite mental. However, when we got to the river today he was having none of it...instead of running in and chasing the ducks like he normally does he ran at the side of it with a look of terror on his face. Well, I say terror, but with Buddy his dumb-arse, vacant stare can pass for anything from confusion to utter excitement!
As it happens, they were good as gold and came to heel on command. They have now all spent the afternoon in their beds sleeping so I think the walk did them good.
To change the subject, I thought I would share this with you. I'm fascinated by other guitarists (being, ahem, one myself) and love to watch different styles. There's a guy called Andy McKee and below is his version of the Toto song "Africa". I first saw him do one of his own compositions called "Drifting" and I'll try to embed that at some point in the future. Enjoy...
