    Don't rush the main event in excitement using a microwave.

    You might blow your beans prematurely and in an uncontrolled and catastrophic manner.

    Could be a major kleenex clean-up scenario.

    Correction: No beans. Should be able to get home safely.

    I had a McDonald's for dinner actually.

    Maybe I should have stuck to that healthy staple of Thai street food?

    Or a 2kg steak?

    ^ She is a little cutie... spoiled rotten but good fun. It makes a nice change to have a manageable dog.

    Nice sunset... I can't wait to get back to the warmth.

    It does look a bit Beagle-ish... maybe Looper has some royal connection. The Aussies usually love all that stuff!

    Just asking....
    It's what keeps us young and care-free mate!

    As for me, I get it very rarely so really enjoy it when it happens. I also think there's a tendency for some to take tongue in cheek posts a bit too literally.

    And anyway, I walked straight past a bakery today without even popping in for a steak and kidney. After a week of eating shite it's out of my system now, and besides, today I found this... you can't beat a tongue and tomato ketchup sandwich!



    I spent all morning in my mum's garden which has become exceedingly overgrown. I could say stuff about my siblings but I won't... the perennial problem when you live away.

    I had to pop in to Weston-Super-Mare after lunch and it has become the most depressing and grotty place on earth. At one point W-S-M had the highest number of drug rehabilitation centres in the country and with such a high drop-out rate there's only one possible end result...

    I couldn't find one nice photo to take and I hope to never go back there again, which is a shame as it used to be only shite and tacky but still OK when I was a teenager. Walking down the High Street was like something out of that bar in Total Recall and I'll never complain about living in Korat ever again... well, at least not for the first week back anyway.

    I lie... took one photo. Al I wanted was a parking ticket, FFS...



    I'm easing up on the alcohol after a week off work. After 3 dry months it's been good to get re-acquainted but enough is enough. I found these in Morrison's today... 3 for a fiver, so just for the experience I had one of each. The Cornish Gold won hands down. I also got my Christmas choccies... does anyone know what goes in the 'Heroes' tubs? That's the only one I haven't got... I'm running out of space unless I book a third check-in bag.



    I had to look in a charity shop of course as they seem to be everywhere in the UK. I found a great tankard for Ł1.20 but I don't want to end up taking a load of shite back to Korat. Hal, something for you maybe?



    Bella keeps me sane. I get mildly pissed up on cider in the evenings while my mum snoozes in front of antique programmes... and Bella just looks at me. It's a bit mundane and not what I'd have been doing after a 3 month offshore trip 20 years ago, that's for sure.

    I love dogs. Those 3 months offshore already feel like a distant memory now that I've had a week 'home' in Somerset but now I want to go back to my real home. Time moves on fast and I want to see my own dogs and my daughter, sit with them by the pond with a Leo... it's been over 3 months... oh, and the wife of course!



    Oh yeah... in my last work thread there was talk about watches with HW and PAG while I was stuck in Gothenburg through the festive season (where's PAG BTW...). Well, nearly a year later I've finally been united with last year's present to meself after working 6 months straight... and I'm chuffed to fukk. It's not often I spoil myself.

    Nice watch and cup Mendip!

    All those seaside towns have gone to the dogs nowadays, not many left that are untouched by drugs, poverty and unemployment.

    One of my favourites less the ketchup. Never seen it in a can, must be a local thing.

    You forgot to take your xmas cracker toy home. I have stopped wearing my watch the last 2 years and i really don't fancy putting it back on.

    ^ sadly true. Many are reliant on seasonal holiday trade and then are dead for 9 months a year. There doesn't seem a will or a plan to fix these problems, certainly not for the last 30 years.

    Yeah, very true. Mendip's description made me think of Blackpool; the problems it has are identical, but I loved that place - and its tackiness - when I was a kid.

    I reckon that cup would look reet good in my kitchen. It's 1 more cup than my team is likely to see this season too!

    ^ Sounds good. It might have to be a 'medical renewal' day, but I can get that out the way in the morning!

    Look forward to it.

    Medical renewal? Ho ho ho ‘‘twas only 17 posts ago you were saying that you didn’t need anymore passport renewals till 2026! I see what you did there.

    As for those watches, they look very nice. Simple with a low profile. So many men’s watch seem to go for a huge clunky look these days that I really don’t like. But those look the opposite. Enjoy!

    I've had the Air-King Date for 30 years and one of my favourite things about it is that it's inconspicuous. When it's bracelet wore through last year it was so expensive to replace that I thought about a replacement watch. The Air-king is from the early 80s, the 'new' Date-Just from 1975. That's the last watch I'll buy and they'll both be worth more in 10 years time.

    Why do you keep showing the fucker off on here for then?

    It's about as inconspicuous as you and your wicked kecks around your curled up manky toes with the shed door wide open, pulling the head off your nob


    Your new kettle looks sweet mate. Nice looking evening or dress watch that. A Bobby(and gardener) dazzler

    ^ show us yer toes then!

    I'm gonna start a foot thread. I reckon mine would stand up to anyone else's. Lots of bluster on this forum with no substance.

    I've shown you mine...

    Nice Datejust, those bi-metal jubilee bracelets look great too. Do you know the service history? That's a huge buying/selling point with the older watches these days.

    I was thinking same. That is Walmart trailer trash food. Life out of the freezer and into the microwave. Explains why so many kids are fat. Loaded with sodium to taste good and preservatives to last for a few years in the freezer.
