Isn't everyone's mate in the pub called Dave 🤔
Let me think, can't think of anyone in the pub called Dave, must be a down south thing. :)

It's the Southern Equivalent of "Jimmy" :devil: :rolleyes:
It must be as you got the first name correct, not from Scotland though from NI.

Come to think of it I used to drink in a couple of pubs in Stockport that had a lot of Daves in them.

Last weekend took advantage of the family bubble. Loaded the bikes and drove down to Wiltshire. Love that part of the world.

I'm getting a "picture too big message" so can't post a picture. But it was only a picture of a Merc with bikes on the roof.

More to the point, seven of us cycled from Bradford on Avon to Bath and back. Great trip.

Next trip will be Norfolk.

The one after that will be La Vendee in France. GET. IN!!!!!

At the bottom of Winsley Hill headed for Bath, can't be sure if it's just before or after the railway bridge, turn left and a little way up is (was) a pub called The Hop Pole which was a regular watering hole for us when we lived in Winsley. Went in there some years ago and it was still as nice, hope it's still there!

Hop Pole, Limpley Stoke, recently showing as currently closed, new management, opening soon.

Not me but in one of the next streets two houses next to each other installed 4 massive marquees out the back and had some sort of party or event last night with what sounded like live music!
Sounded like there were an awful lot of people there from the noise I heard.

I didn't know events like this were back on the cards in Scotland!

I finished building planters for the front of the house from sleepers before my week off in Norfolk.

Last weekend I cleared a load of junk out of the shed to make some space for the cat. He's one year old and has taken to staying out so I want to put a cat flap in the door and make a space for a basket or something.

When It cools down a bit I've got a TV mount to put up and some pictures.

Way too hot to do anything like that.

Meanwhile my wife's been working on the council to get the scrappy central reservation-thing in our cul-de-sac sorted.
