Good afternoon and welcome back. It is a lovely afternoon here in the Eyrie as the sun is out and the temperature is a lovely 23 degrees. Little Conrad is playing on the lake and Bob the Sheep is working on his next feud-whatever that might be. That man is sat listening to some music and I can sneak in and just drop you all a little line.
Now what has been going on this week? Ah yes something that might conceivably be described as the social event of the year. No not me getting my wings on that man’s credit card and going on a booze fulled rampage-for once! No it was Uncle Tache’s leaving do from his current job. We think that it went well and a good time was had by all. We were not invited and this was for the best overall I feel. The original plan was that it would all be over by about 21:00. No risk of that with UT in charge. They all left the pub in the wee hours and straggled back to the hotel they were staying in. As you know we are grateful for small mercies (no really!) here in the Eyrie and we were very grateful it was a hotel they were going back to and not this place. Instead we listened outside the window for sounds of wild debauchery but heard nothing that we could definitively attribute to UT. That was a disappointment I can tell you but we are sure that there will be other opportunities in the future to join in. If there aren’t I think that you know that we will simply make them up and join in anyway.
Now what else? That man is going to seal the deal on the new house this week. He is setting off to tour the new home with a curious load of things. It consists of a bottle of vintage Champagne, a bottle of Bombay Sapphire Gin, a lot of cans of tonic and a large bag full of toilet rolls. I hope that he doesn’t meet any of the neighbours carrying this slightly degrading load as they will get completely the wrong idea as to what we do in our spare time. Mind you it would be accurate but we want to project a classier image than that man wondering around with a bag full of assorted toilet rolls. He is muttering something abut 6 toilets-think of the water bill but I am not sure that he is of sound mind at the moment.
It is interesting times ahead I can tell you. If our normal schedule is interrupted for the next few weeks don’t worry. It is simply that life gets complicated for the next few weeks and we need to work on our scheduling skills apparently. Speak for yourself is what I say on that front I have never had problems scheduling my next drink but you know that man is no good at multi tasking. Still exciting days ahead. Wish us luck-we are really going to need it!
