Thread: Weekend again - what's happening?

    Weekend again - what's happening?

    This afternoon the car is off for a full new car detail and coating.

    Tomorrow the boy has cricket early doors, then nothing planned.

    Sunday Charley has a dance show, Alfie has a go ape type thing and I have to collect my car late afternoon.

    So nothing exciting planned.


    And you?

    Heading down later today to Seaton in Devon to see friends for the weekend.

    Walk the dog on the beach, cream tea with jam first, and a general chill out.

    Spending two nights in the van with the girls, wife is away on a hen do.
    Van now has two beds with mattresses. Eldest likes making nests, so has made one and is delighted.
    She's slightly less happy that we're aiming to have the bunks in before we spend a week in the van next month.

    Would've been my Aunt's birthday tomorrow, so going over to Kent to scatter the ashes and then grabbing a Chinese takeaway (her favorite) in the evening.

    Sunday the eldest has a golf lesson early doors and then a friends party at a trampoline place straight after. Nothing planned for the rest of the day.

    The cream is effectively the butter.

    You could put marmite on first then butter would you unless youíre an utter bell.

    Thought that might draw a few comments

    Dave, jam first as the more dense item, then cream as a topper. Other way round and the jam slides off....

    scone is just a jam & cream delivery method. Pile it up however, just get the ratio's correct.
    Simon no longer owes me anything, Dave does though.
    Floyd probably owes me at least twenty with the interest rolling up...

    It doesnít slide off if you apply it carefully and hold it level.

    Iím going to Devon in 4 weeks. Iíll try both.

    Always cream first*, as it acts as the jam-to-scone bonding agent, otherwise the jam doesn't adhere to the scone and the jam/cream sticks to the roof of your mouth whilst the unlubricated scone crumbles around your tongue and teeth, making everything feel dry, like a Jacob's cracker.

    * must be thick clotted cream, as it's more dense than most jam and it's mighty tasty.

    Fri: Making pizza

    Sat: 10 mile Time Trial on a bicycle whilst wearing a pointy hat. Then friends are over for evening BBQ.

    Sun: Recover, do some DIY, Watch F1, etc.

    They do. It's family time with no distractions. We would have done more camping, but our tent was huge, so putting it up for a weekend was pointless.
    This solves that problem, so we can do stuff like this.

    Oh, and I just had a man around to address a wasp nest. £60, here less than 10 minutes. Good work if you can get it (and don’t get stung to ****).

    Going to Rhythm Tree this weekend. Only just down the road, so we will dip in and out.

    On the guest list as I do stuff for the main stage compere, who's a good mate and is also playing on Saturday - brakes on his van, filming for his music videos etc. Random stuff. Hosted his 40th birthday party here in May, too.

    Alabama 3 and The Orb tonight, Robert Plant on Saturday and Cast on Sunday.

    Probably some campsite mowing around it, too.

    The council do it for free here. A few years back a knowledgable chap turned up and politely told me if I'd execute my original foolproof plan, poke it with a long stick and run away, I'd of likely been stung to death because it was a HUGE wasp nest and a time of year when they are all hyper-alert protecting the queen and hatchlings.

    Our council doesn’t. Wankers.

    Talking to a friend, who said that her Dad put on all his motorcycle gear, walked up to the nest, poured petrol on it, lit it, and ran away.

    Ours was in the cavity in our loft-office. It was sounding very angry after he squirted it. Now oddly quiet

    We've had a few in the ground on the campsite over the years - go round late evening with powder and hose it in the hole, then leave sharpish.

    Seems to work OK.

    Hate the bloody things - trod on a nest when I was 10 and got stung all over, particularly around my eyes.

    Also put a chainsaw through a couple of nests ripping back hedges in my 20s - that's difficult to spot, because you're quite focused on what you're doing and you're getting snagged on brambles, too. It's only when you look down and have numerous wasps on your arms you realise what's actually going on, not that you're getting snagged on a particularly large number of brambles!
