As you may or may not have noticed, The Silver Fox has been off air for a little while – We didn't go away as the kids are in full GCSE mode, but I managed to do a bit of DIY, watched my daughter in her school play and went down to Sussex to see Mum for Mother's Day (more of that later).
I actually do enjoy doing odd jobs around the house, once I've started them – but if I've gone into relax mode – I just need a bit of a push to start with, usually my wife Tracey is a willing volunteer for that job!
It's been a nightmare keeping Toby clean in this weather, one of the pitfalls of owning a shaggy dog, but one far outweighed by his gorgeousness! (Biased owner?).
The Monday after Mother's Day, I drove down to see Mum in West Sussex, lovely to see her, but the journey home was a shocker. I thought we'd seen the last of the snow in the South, but over the Downs that day, it came down heavily and quickly.
As I slithered my way home, I saw several cars in fields and ditches. I was actually lucky, as I was already travelling as it started to fall and later that night I heard on the news how many folks had been trapped in Sussex for many hours. I hope you weren't one of them.
Just for Fun!
Last blog I offered a close up picture as a fun competition – regular reader Marian suggested a twist on this and said that we should say what should be in the "speech bubble" on my photo with Charlie. I liked the idea :- So this week your "just for fun" comp is – What should be in my "thought bubble" ? See the picture at the top of the blog.
Please leave your suggestions in the comments section and remember that all comments are moderated – Ha Ha!
