1) Turn up at your friends' house (in this case Mala and Craig) to help them move 400 yards up the road (well, technically an alleyway but that's another story);
2) Don't drop any of their pillows in a muddy puddle (Nice one Vinnie, is this some kind of Sicilian moving gift?);
5) Invite them around for Sunday dinner and get Mrs B to do the cooking.
Result? Instant and probably undeserved hero status - but I'll take it.
A big thank you to the little (well she was quite large and not in a vertical way) old lady who rushed over to me at the end of the class and asked was I OK. She was worried about the faces I was pulling and the whimpering noises which turned into yelps after a particularly vicious adjustment from my Yoga teacher. I had to assure the little old lady that I was fine and this is what I normally look and sound like.....I'm now attending three classes a week and it is testament to the fantastic inabilities of my body that I'm showing no visible signs of improvement....
Mrs B - That's a mighty fine pussy you have yourself **
* which happened to be a statement of fact and jolly tasty walnuts they were too
**To put this into context I had Mischief on my lap
Mischief and walnuts.....separated at birth?
The British Bobsleigh team :-
Well done to our latest heroes. Every time I saw any of their runs they were travelling at speed upside down. Hmmm sounds like we need to put runners on the top of the sleigh as well, then watch us go, we would be unstoppable.......
The Mitch winter Olympic report
I'm afraid our reporter on the spot in Vancouver, Mitch, has succumbed to his roof falling injuries and has been unable to submit the guest Olympic blog. I think he's just angling for a no expenses spared (or in fact spent) trip to Russia in four years' time. I'm pretty sure that I will just need to edit his report (when eventually submitted) and change:
Vancouver to Sochi***
Mitch to Mitchski
Joyce to Joyceski (I'm not stumping up for a Russian internet bride, he can rebrand his Canadian wife)
After all, reporting on one British Olympic bobsleigh sliding most of the way upside-down is pretty much the same in Vancouver or Sochi.
*** No I hadn't heard of it either, just think of it as more accidental education brought to you through the BlackLOG
On a serious note I hope you feel better soon Mitchski.....
As you can probably tell it's been a bit of a quiet week in the BlackLOG household...
Have a good week
