Three job interviews today.

Two of which were planned, the third was a company who were in contact with me last week but went quiet after we struggled to agree on a date. I decided to drop past their office as I was round the corner anyway, and they were impressed with my initiative.

To most folk this is probably very boring, but I’m beside myself having managed to squeeze these kinds of figures out of a very heavy 3.5 V6.

Who’d have thought all those times my dad said “anticipate the conditions and read the road” he’d actually be right!

My black rescue cat Casper is useless - real mummy's boy, couldn't catch a cold. However, I'm out in the garden late at night a few days back and my faithful Casper at my side as usual (he's my shadow) when 'something' came into the back garden. Casper went nuts and started going snooker loopy, shot off into the bushes and full on attacked the interloper - lots of hissing and....er.....yelping. Yes, yelping.

 

Interloper shot out the garden, came back in again, Casper full on attack mode again. More yelping and hissing. Much rustling of bushes and out came interloper not two foot from me. Fox, probably one of this year's cubs. I said to him 'You don't belong in here mate', and the fox shot off, exit stage right.

 

Casper - my hero.

 

 

Great cat you have, Clays. Casper's the man!

Here's another attack cat. I wasn't able to get the video to transfer here, but it chases the bear across the yard and gets it to vault the back fence at high speed:

1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

I like to think that when it comes to clothes most gay men don't actually look "gay" In fact I like to imagine that clothing wouldn't be a reliable indicator of sexual orientation.

It's been a pretty shit last month or so, just seems like endless bad news recently. Fingers crossed though I've managed to negotiate a deal on the house my missus is selling, and we had a rare night out together yesterday to see a Cliff Richard based musical, which probs should have been awful, but was actually very good. 

Trying to not get pissed as per usual in town was quite hard, mind you.

Amys been moaning that her numberplate isn't recognised by anpr anymore, after having to push the buzzer in wycombe to get out of the car park.

Until we came into town just now as I extolled the virtue of being able to park in sainsburys which has no barriers but just anpr... Her plate doesn't come up on the screen!

She's going to leave it now until it fails a test (if the car lasts that long)

If you find out the secret I think you could sell that technology as 'show plates' & make a fortune.

it's quite simple I think, order cheap legal plates, then give them 125,000 miles of wear, sandblast them a bit and voila!

I don't want to jinx it or anything, but it looks like we actually are buying a house and I'm moving in sometime around November/December.  Much later in the year than we wanted and the house needs more work than we'd like, but it was at the sensible end of the budget and we get to make it our own.  It's also got useful things like plenty of parking and a garage.

Be careful.
It may be that some cameras don't, and some do.

If you're regularly getting spotted leaving, but not entering, they will go back through the "unrecognised" entry photos assuming that a human can read it, and fine you manually.

Mine often doesn't get read just because it's so dirty. Mind you, I'm on the whitelist for Sainsbury's anyway ;-)
