I think @CB-Saint will have plenty of posh corks to suit the occasion if needed.
Which occasion are we talking about?
The fart or the royal noshing off?
For the first, something with a strong nose, for the second, TCP
I think the hints about Royalty could be a red herring designed to lead us up the garden path. Could it be possible that Shroppie has landed the starring role in a remake of the 1970s situation comedy, Oh No, It’s Selwyn Froggitt? You heard it here first.
I pointed out that startling similarity long ago.
Ah but did you know he was in line for the starring role in the remake?
A nightmare getting 29kg of luggage and 12kg of food into a 20kg suitcase but at least that is checked in fingers crossed the “airport shopping bags” and coat pockets trick works
Only 1 pint of Doombar left so couldnt decide ended up with 2 x Abbot Ales so Mrs P_F could choose her poison.
Just booked to tag a few nights in the Maldives onto next year’s Indonesia trip. Because I’m worth it and I’ll be in Mrs S’s good books for the foreseeable future.
Take away curry for me and YoungAdult#2 & whatever TV I want to watch at the volume I want it in the absence of Mrs C_S this weekend
Seeing Harry Kane getting booked for diving in the penalty area
Which replays subsequently show was a penalty. Are the VAR officials corrupt or just incompetent?
There’s something not quite right about VAR decisions these days. The conspiracy theorist side of me says it’s undue influence from the “”bigger clubs” but in reality I suspect the reality is the refs are to scared by the “big clubs” oh, wait
Rashford just had a similar shout ignored.
Got to say, it’s actually quite refreshing. The taters are fuming because any PL ref would have given both. But Kane managed to just about kick the ball nowhere before sticking his left boot into the keeper, and Rashford had lost the ball and launched himself forward into the defenders anyway. I know by the book they were penalties. But neither player was going to score, and both just played for the penalty instead.
Which the US coverage I was watching said were correct decisions, Kane left his foot in and they called it a good call.
Gotta love opinion based decisions
Mrs P_F posted a FB memory from the DP World Golf
One of the great weekends
(Rory’s ex for those who don’t know - she also snogged me live in TV)
Lady Slowlane and myself were scanning the cruise itinerary yesterday and we thought we’d give this a go…
2 weeks ago Mrs P_F gave me grief because I would not go for a walk on a sunny but cold & windy day.
I was busy I said.
Anyway, she accused me of being a touch OCD and it was way too early for the task I was carrying out.
So I feel well smug, Brother in Law & Mrs P_F’s BFF were both late for work as they couldn’t open their car doors - that snow came down on top of a layer of frozen rain - car was a block of ice this morning.
I had spent a good couple of hours spraying the local anti freezing Silicone onto all my door seals.
Sure it still took 15 minutes to get some heat onto the windscreen to start to get through the ice but the other two cars are still solid and i have a smug grin that is annoying everyone
Well played, Sir. Well played.
