Odds of Laxie doing a 12-14 mile trek on Saturday?  There"s pub, grub and bus to bring us back at the end of it, but still.

Luckily, I"ve been sick as a dog for the past few weeks and we have a new sofa being delivered at some point that day.  I was able to use both as "get out of jail free" cards on this one.

Instead, I will be relaxing at home waiting for the new sofa to arrive whilst sipping away at some good wine.  Around 3:30 we"re lighting the bbq and cooking all sorts whilst drinking more wine.  All in all, a good day and no blisters or muscle pains after.  Result!

Some of you know that it is my Daughter's Birthday today. Now the only downside to this day is the fact that we were invited over to her Mothers for a "family" lunch which includes her husband. Now while I am not arsed about him or the fact she buggered off for him, it does lead to a stilted few hours.

I go and be polite, it doesn't cost much and it would be petulant not to go. However it's not a comfortable situation.

Never mind we came back without a major incident and I am going out for the evening with Marie & Ger to watch Marie at Karaoke. Not getting me up there though.

It does mean that I will miss the league match tonight, but I promised Marie (and as her Mother said she couldn't be bothered it's no contest) sorry scouse.

Oh and Tipperary are killing Clare in the Hurling FML

Here is a song you could sing ...

HALLELUJAH (SORT OF)

Oh Des Duffy you are the man
You"ve done things that no other can
You bought three drinks, but surely that""ll do ya?
That"ll do ya, that"ll do ya, that"ll do ya, that"ll do-oo-oo ya.

Hey Leigh Wiltshire
We"re all so glad that you ran
To a few shoot outs and a pair of Jimmy Choo-sa
Jimmy Choo-sa, Jimmy Choo-sa, Jimmy Choo-sa, Jimmy Choo-oo-oo sa.

Neil Dawson you"re ace
You might not have won every race
Still, nice to know Chipaccrual is a loser
Is a loser, is a loser, is a loser, is a lo-oo-oo-ser.

Kinboshi take a bow
The things you did made us go wow!
The ladies loved you "cos you"re such a schmoozer
Such a schmoozer, such a schmoozer, such a schmoozer, such a schmoo-oo-oo-zer.

So join me as we sing this song
A year when APATs could do no wrong
A very hot and happy Summer to ya
Summer to ya, Summer to ya, Summer to ya, Summer to-oo-oo ya


Either that or sing it at an APAT event ...

L

Off to Sunny Solihull tomorrow for a seminar on Voice picking. It will be a long day.

Then off to Lovely Livingston on Thursday for the last go live of the rollout -- So this blog might get neglected. I don"t have much time but Friday night is free and if there is a game in Edinburgh I might be tempted before the hard work starts on Saturday. Any ideas ?

So today a bunch of neighbours gathered together to sort out the gardening needs for a 96 year old across the road.  Ger knows her well...her name is Baby.  Well, really her name is Margaret, but not even her one and only son calls her anything but Baby.  Children and adults gathered for the day.  There was cutting, trimming, strimming, digging....you name it, the lot was done.  Not often we get a sunny day in Ireland, so we go mad when it hits us.  That"s normal.  But it"s very rare to see 7 families attack one person"s yard together.  Granted, I"ve been sickly lately, so I was the delegation rep for the day.  Shouted orders and they did what they were told.  Thank god because they put in some awful work for their day!  

When all was said and done, nothing would do but to have a bbq for the neighbours as a "thank you" for the work they"d put in.  Whilst I got away without doing heavy work, the cooking was all mine.  25 were fed by the time I was done and there was still food left over for stragglers who showed up late.  The children put on a show of gymnastics and dancing for us after.  It was abso comedy...especially when they threw in their version of Stavros Flatley.  Just when we thought the "block party" was about to die down a game of footy broke loose with dads and kids in the front yard. 

Whilst the rest of the world is pissing about with borders and power, there"s a wee village in Knocknagree where nothing else matters only family and a little old lady called Baby.    

Great day and as Ger would say...Priceless.
