Windy Weekend


We had high winds all weekend, which caused a lot of fun -

Frou Frou isn't very keen on wind, probably because she knows that a strong gust can lift her into the air.  We keep a tight grip on her lead, but even so...

Hurried strengthening of a fence that was moving a bit too much...

One of the gear cables on my bike broke, leaving me stuck in the lowest set of gears.  I guess this was OK when going into the wind, but very frustrating when I had it behind me and wanted to really make the most of it...


Strangely, my dad has fallen in love with pizza.  He asked if I could make him one on Friday, so I did.  A fairly big one.  He ate most of it, and took the rest home to have for breakfast the next day.

He seemed to think it was some sort of wonder food!  The best night's sleep in ages, plus it seemed to really agree with his often troublesome digestive system.

He wanted another one on Saturday...

And Sunday!

I think he realises that I won't be able to make him one tonight...


Managed to get some good reading done over the weekend, but have still not broken ground on actually writing my assignment.  Will try again tonight.  Maybe.  Might leave it for tomorrow, as I had a really productive day today.


I will finish with a piece of music.  Gary Moore, one or my guitar heroes, died yesterday, aged 58.  Far too young.  I suspect that this is one of his most famous songs...

Pizza? Never ate one before?

Your dad has excellent taste, especially as it is home made.

I have this song on my ipod, the lyrics are crap, but the guitar is to die for. So wrong he died so young.

wReggie - I think he might have tried a cheap shop bought one a long time ago...

Shrinky - Hahaha! So true, but I guess you can't have everything.

Oh, and my sodding guttering blew off the back of my house in that storm.. scared the crap out of me, it almost took the window out with it on it's way down!

Shrinky - and we were worried about a bit of wobbly fence!

Poor Frou-Frou, having to worry about being blown away!

And not that I doubted it, but there's proof now that you are a fabulous cook. Your dad wanted one of your pizzas three days in a row? That must be some fantastic pizza! If I ever come visit, you must promise to make one when I'm there! ;-)

Terri - I do seem to make a pretty good pizza. When I make them for parties I rarely get a slice...

Now I have a picture of Frou Frou floating on the leash like some kind of doggie kite. I bet Custard doen't have that problem.

Musta been a great Pizza. You'll have to share some of your recipies to make them so irresistable.
