It’s evening now
Insurance company have said they’ll pay for us to stay in an airbnb while our flat is being dried
We have booked one that’s a 10 minute walk away which is just as well because we’ve just been for a look to find the “on site parking” that the listing said existed, and it turned out to be the shitty looking multistory over the road that I don’t really want to leave my car in for a week
This is nice, what is it going to be?
WFH so haven’t been doing much besides listening to dub all day. Think mostly inspired by @riverwise pick for his top 100 today.
Augustus Pablo- East of the River Nile/Eastman Dub
Upsetters- Super Ape
Mikey Dread- WWIII
Joe Gibbs and the Professionals- African Dub Chapters 3, 4
Big Youth- Screaming Target
Ah just the usual granny stripe jumper for M. I loved the yarn but there were only 2 left so it may have odd sleeves once i get to them
Going for a walk to the shop to get a bulb of garlic.
Really tricky start to the evening. Managed to leave my jacket plus the eldest’s phone on the platform at Leeds only realised this about five minutes out of Leeds. My poor eldest we’re just about calm and having a second attempt at getting to Halifax.
If anyone heading that way sees an old Motorola phone with a boomer style cover then DM me
that’s the good stuff right there! Hope you are washing it down with a Coors or two
I tried to be all enigmatic playing some weird music I made down the phone but I think I ruined the vibe by saying “helloooo” in a really shy and borderline adorable way
The phone turned up
In Sheffield of all places!
Presuming it changed at Euston
And we got here in time for Ethel Cain
Tried to only eat one Wispa Gold but ate three. Sorry!
Bit of an anxiety evening - skipped drinks with a friend, annoyed at myself for that. Got decisions to make and plenty of tidying to be done and tbh should do more work. But I’ll manage, just need to focus for a change!
Then cocktail and faux magnum as a treat
My washing machine broke down and it’s taking time to get a new one (Landlord doesn’t live in the country and might be reluctant to buy me another new washing machine after the last one was utterly destroyed by a falling water tank in 2019 so I’m washing clothes at my neighbours.
Three people today have commented on the weather here today saying “typical English weather, huh?”
It’s been 33/34 degrees all day today up until about two hours ago, since when there have been raging storms. I feel like replying “no, not typical English weather it’s way too hot” but it’s been so long since I spent a summer day in the UK so I didn’t reply. Is this typical English weather?
- Oven pizza
At work. Just having my break in these luxurious surroundings
Had a vegetable patty, a bag of cheese and onion and a bottle of irn bru for dinner.
Wife has been baking lemon drizzle cake this afternoon so looking forward to a bit of that when I get home at 1am.
The TV is away with work for a week
