So here we are with two classics from my hubby aka @groovegenerator.
It seems Mancunians lose much bigger items than the mere glove…..a jacket…and can I just say I love the bridge over the River Medlock here’s colouring…
and the lost cardigan
I’m so grateful for the donated photos these days as I almost feel I’ve lost my way. I don’t seem to be coming across the lost goodness very much of late, or if I do I’m either in a car travelling at speed or I don’t have my camera with me.
On Sunday David (said groovy guy) and I headed up to Glenridding Sailing Centre for a spot of dinghy madness with some friends. Enroute I spied a fabulous patterned, child’s, pink fleece draped over the railing at Patterdale Hall Estate and was itching to get the shot later in the day but had to get to the lake to catch the Epic swim series.
I was all geared up to do the mile swim a few months ago until I read that you have to wear a swimming wetsuit or you cannot enter. I was so disappointed and all it did was raise my usual be-irkedness screaming in my head….it’s just not that easy!
I have a love hate relationship with active wear….is that its name? Well anyway…stuff you wear to do whatever sport. If you walk or climb and don’t wear the proper gear then the snobberati rightly or wrongly berate you for putting yourself in danger by being inadequately clad – well then meet the odd shapes half way then! You tell me where you can buy any proper walking/climbing/sailing gear for the 5 foot 2 size 22 woman’s frame!
It’s nigh on impossible and much as you want to get into all these actvities – you just don’t find the right attire. There’s a business idea for Lord Sugar and his entrepreneurial elite!
Did anyone catch that last night? I know you did and why oh why was it not a double sacking??? Why couldn’t we just get rid of that slimy slippery nausea inducing bullsh*t merchant Jim. Honestly he makes my flesh crawl. And that caustic cow who was finally sacked last night got off lightly if you ask me too…..why did nobody pick her up on being such a god awful bully….I would love Susan to have have waltzed out of the boardroom, gone to give her a hug and just slapped her hard across the face before walking out and leaving a tip for the taxi driver. Am guessing televised assault isn’t the route they wish to pursue…but how the nation would have applauded.
Anyway to recap – the swim was a great sight…and it transpires you can get swimming wetsuits to fit the larger frame more easily, not only are they stretchy but you can just cut unneeded waste off….and when I drove past the lost fleece site later it had gone : (
So if you’ve lost your way…can I draw your attention to the Burnistoun Rap…I am sure it was made for this blog!
Rant over and out!
