    it’s all due to covid. Whilst in lock down the fitter was telling us that they were not allowed to do any inside work unless it was either an emergency, or the house was empty , so now they are doing work that was booked back on February!

    The other day I said out new cloakroom could not be fitted until Oct, well yesterday the fitter came to see the job. He informed us that he can’t do it until Nov!

    If you remember a couple of weeks back I broke the basin in the downstairs loo, resulting in Sue demanding a newly designed room not just a basin replacement. The new cloakroom will cost just over £2000 plus labour! Worse, due to covid, work is not not likely to start before October !

    Stupidly fought my loss of mojo and tried the river again tonight. Tried a different beat and kept my ear well protected. Three hours of casting straight into the wind, at least I had the right line for the rod this time. Not a nibble, didn’t even see a fish rise of any sort. I don’t really...

    Not sure if we’re applying the mantle to salmon fishing, but if so it’s all mine. Loosing my fishing mojo again a lot lately, I’ve hardly been out at all. Decided to get of my backside and go to Alderneuk . On ringing up to book I found that they’re closed today. I should have accepted that as a...

    I used to be with British Gas for my electricity. I eventually got fed up with their continual bombardment to have a smart meter fitted, and gave in letting them fit one as long as it was a SMART2. I’ve now changed supplier and the smart meter no longer works. Yes you’ve guessed it. British gas...

    Both of my jabs were by telephone appointment at my doctors. In both cases I saw no other people, arriving a few minutes early, was seen jabbed and left before my appointment time. Neither jab hurt and no side effects.

    Arrrgggh! Sue will not let me just replace the basin in the cloakroom. This morning I’ve been escorted around the local bathroom designers. Apparently we have to have a new vanity unit, sink and taps with matching new toilet. Also on the list is a new mirror splashback and flooring. And then of...

    The day gets worse. I’ve just changed my electricity supplier from British Gas. Their app kept telling me I was in credit to approx £240, so I was looking forwards to the new rod(refund). On ringing up to find out where my refund has got too, I now find out I actually owe them money. Apparently...

    Not happy. House cleaning day. I accidentally dropped a glass bottle of soap about three inches onto the downstairs cloakroom basin which promptly cracked. The basin not the bottle:mad::mad::mad:

    One for Ged! Went down the river this evening, no salmon or sea trout seen at all, not a nibble! The picture doesn’t do it justice but there was one hell of a hatch. Strangely I didn’t see a single fish of any sort rise to them.

    Priceless !!! My dad had fell over and cut his arm. I insisted he had the doctor look at it as it was not healing correctly in my opinion. He rang for an appointment to be told he could not see a doctor but would he take a photo of the cut and send it in. My dad thought for a second before...

    I tried Drum Loch this morning. Overcast, light breeze, good ripple and plenty of fish showing. I tried everything, not a nibble! At one point whilst pulling in a squirmy ready to recast I had a take but it came off before the net! Send me the mantle!

    Never ironed anything in years. Anything that might require ironing is hung on a coat hanger to dry. Most creases fall out, any that dont usually do within a few minutes of being worn!

    I’ve tried the brace intermittently Tom. To be honest I just find it very uncomfortable to wear snd it does not seem to help a lot. My doctor has referred me for physio. I got a letter from them saying look at their website. If that doesn’t help, see your GP! Great fat lot of use that was!:mad:
