I am skiving off work today.

Also there are lots of apples free to pick off the tree in the church garden across the road.

Bunking off and scrumping? Are you living in a 50s Beano comic?

Continuing the DC Thomson theme, the Boy and I built a sandcastle today, and a passing lady said it was "a work of art".  

Stepping back from our labours for a bit I realised she was right, it was virtually a platonic sandcastle, built just below the high tide line so as to be surrounded by waves, with linking causeway and working drawbridge, well defined crenellations and arrowloops, and a mix of round and square mural towers paying testimony to the long accretion of its defenses.  It even had a soggy fly as king (I'll never understand monarchy).  

Unfortunately I didn't get her phone number.

You tell stories like Kim Newman does*. The lady in question got about 40 years younger in my imagination between the first line of your post and the last.


Congrats on the sandcastle, the father-son time and the kudos from the beach crumpet, by the way.




*That's not a compliment.  ;)

Tccch, a photo of either would merely be shadows cast on a cave wall.  I'm telling you about the real thing, y'dig?  Mythopoesis on a sunny day.

Mythopoesis
Trudges off to online dictionary.....again.

Aha! I usually do a bit of mythopoesis in the pub of a Friday night.

You didn't challenge the young lady to assault your ramparts then?

The wife's scan seemed to go all right today. All positives from the examiner. May be residue from the Mastitis she had while breastfeeding Sophie 2 years ago.
Not going to jump for joy until the results come through confirmed.
At least this has been promoted from the spugs thread.

Good to hear Vzzbxx.
To tell the truth, you can all get screwed.

Good news vzz.  Hope all is good.  My wife went through a long battle with breast cancer.  Tough times so delighted to hear things seem OK and keeping my fingers crossed for you both.

Ah brilliant. I had the same thing once - a scan prompted by a lump caused by an infection. It was really frightening at the time but my local NHS worked at lightening speed.
