Having pasta at 9am strikes me as strange but not unpleasant. Not my first choice of breakfast but I'd be fine with it. 

 

I guess there's a reason why he has pasta for breakfast, otherwise it wouldn't be relevant here 

Carb loading.

Did the Old Trafford tour once, abd they told us they to have  Jaffa cakes at half time at Utd.( in the Ferguson days, maybe still do and other clubs do it too).

I tried it with my Under 11s having lost 8-0 the previous week. This time we lost 11-0, so they never got them again!

not what you would expect to see parked up on a street corner in byker ! (a not too great part of newcastle)

 

 

 

 

There used to be a Citroen specialist round the back of Chillingham Road metro station, maybe connected to that. (If it's still there, I left in 2000 - now I feel old)

Rummaging through the random rack of spray paints in the Range, failing to find Mitsubishi A19 silver for the Shonky Shogun, and saw what are possibly 2 of the most AS colours ever?

Rusty Gusset Brown, nice.

I'm always impressed how the Hycote stand in the Range is still stuck in some sort of timewarp, it's very useful!

Contracts exchanged on new house. Double garage and 3 car drive.

Friend heard of my issues losing my car storage last month. Contacted a friend of his friend, who has found me a nice, small, dry barn to rent 2 miles from the new house for what amounts to beer money. 6 months of the barn (will fit 2 cars) is the same as one month of the commercial car storage.

I once flew from Shannon to Manchester but you had to change planes at Dublin. The first leg was on an inbound overnight flight from America. It was awful , like walking into the aftermath of an all night party with everyone sleeping in chairs , snoring and farting. (Lots of farting on planes due to reduced pressure).

On top of that , as we took off , the cabin was filled with the smell of fuel and I was convinced we were going to crash. 
On the up side, on the leg to Manchester , I was sat a row in front of Alex Higgins. The bar service was brisk to say the least.
