World darts championship

Just been watching the darts over the holidays and they were brilliant, Gary Anderson from Scotland ended up beating the 16 time world champ Phil Taylor in a nail biting final. At one point Gary had three darts fall out of the treble 20 all at once https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DRuMitbYWDg In the match there were 31, 180,s which is a record too and that's not counting the one that fell out. Even Angie has been glued to the TV over the last 5 days or so and she hates darts.

My helper didn't arrive today it looks like Thursday before he will be here. I have an appointment to see a Ortho something about my left anckle which has tendinitis now on Thursday as well in galway and aim to get some tiles for the laundry floor when I,m in the town. The ford needs its NCT on Wednesday, hopefully it will go through ok as it only has 84,000 on the clock and no dramas.

2 inches on my belt size

Well the last couple of weeks with little exercise and lots of grub has seen the belt go out two notches and I'm about the same size as I was when working at Baystar and eating Effie burgers and chups on nightshift all the time. Its a shame as the Dr had commented on the weight I had lost since he saw me last when he saw me prior to Christmas anyway its a good excuse to go on a diet as I have a wedding coming up in May and have been asked to be best man and I need the kilt to fit better, at the moment its at maximum extension and not comfortable.

The weather has been alternating between lovely and dreich, today was lovely. My next helper arrives on Monday and I shall be back into the manual work again which should knock kilos off. I,m going to borrow the excavator again and level off an area for the poly tunnel, other jobs it will be handy for are dredging the pond and making a rockery out of a fallen wall down past the pond.

There is a full moon tonight rising at the same time as the sun is setting wish we got more of this weather here but I suppose I shouldn't whinge as we dont have bush fires threatening the house, thoughts go out to all the folks in the Adelaide hills and Victoria who have lost their homes in the last couple of days in the worst bush fires in 30 years.
