    Not wrong. Im drinking more and packing on a few more kegs compared to lockdown 1,2 3 last year, when I tried doing the right thing, exercising and eating right etc . Last year I thought there was a way clear in the distance, this time around..... well, its a cluster fuck.

    Well, at least there's bike stuff to do in the shed as usual.

    I ordered a few bits from Future Sport earlier this week, 1 finger clutch, Rapid Bike evo, fuel line, fuel spigot and guard, trans saver.... of course hasnt turned up yet has it, dammit.

    In the estuary or ocean?
    Eagle ray.
    I must dust off my gear and go whiting fishing while it's still cold.

    That was my guess. Hooked one once on 100lb line jagging for bluefin, stripped line out like having a shit and kicking it out of bed, zero shake or pulse just a massive pull, worked out it was a ray when it leaped out of the water after fighting with it for 1/2 an hour. They get some traction those things.

    Whatever it was, I'm mostly annoyed about all the expensive Daiwa line I lost. Stuff ain't cheap....

    After about 50 mm of rain over the last few days I decided to light up the bonfire this morning. No issues with embers, and a lot of what looks like smoke is steam. Needed 10 litres of diesel and a couple of petrol to get it going.

    Seriously how lazy can you be, everyone else walks out every evening and morning to do that, I like your thinking though, genius!

    Sometimes I like to bake. This week I prepared an entry for the National Threatened Species Bake-off. A selection of date delights, one might say.
