Damn, I had one of those Sundays, scary stuff. What have I done today, well I cut some branches in the garden and started a bonfire with them. Then I went down to B&Q and bought a drain unblocking thing and unblocked the drain. Then did some washing and put some stuff up into the loft. Now all that would be ok if I was sitting here saying what a crap day I hate my life etc., I have to say the unblocking the drain was hardly a laugh a minute but quite satifying when completed having saved £50 on having a plumber deal with it. The bonfire I quite enjoyed, I got a great deal of personal satisfaction at keeping it going and piling half a tree onto it, then, wait for it I used the potash on the garden and to clean the patio! Oh God -I’ve become my Dad, I have clearly inherited his laissez-faire attitude to gardening that necessitates going out only once in a blue moon and getting stuck in. On the negative side I feel guilty at having polluted the environment for the last 4 hours -there was quite a lot of smoke, I reek of it. Anyway having read bigjohn’s blog I see there is life after 35 so I’m sure I’ll be alright, it just comes as a shock when you’ve been afraid of turning into your father and you suddenly find that you did without really noticing!

There’s a good chance if you’re reading this that you’re the 500th visitor to redbaron -you’ll have to imagine the streamers and party poppers but they are there in spirit. Next milestone will be the 100th blog which will come in about 6 weeks or so.

There is a chance I may be able to get the network up and running tonight so I may blog again, we shall see.

You are on track ‘Baron’. I became my Dad about 30 years ago.

it was the cheesy jokes and bad puns that made me realise i’d turned into my dad, and trying to stop the slide is impossible. i think i’ll go tinker in the shed.
