... a Winnie-the-Pooh reference, for those who care for these things.

I have now got four days off work in a row, and I am going away.  Anna hasn't had a proper break all this year, and I am suffering biker's guilt over my foray sewer le continong avec D2.  So last night I prepped the caravan, and today we are heading off.  Not far - just to the edge of the Brecon Beacons - but far enough away to unwind and have a bit of a self-indulgent period of drinking, eating, sleeping, playing silly games, and generally having a laugh and re-connecting.  Places such as Aberglasney and the National Botanical Gardens may well benefit from a visit, as may the local hostelries and chip shops.

In other news, my 2012 weight-loss programme (didn't tell you about that, did I?) has today achieved a major milestone.  I won't tell you what it is, but in metric terms it's like having a birthday with a '0' on the end.   I feel pretty good about this.

Back in a few days.  Play nicely.


  1. Enjoy yourselves.

    "............local hostelries and chip shops. In other news, my 2012 weight-loss programme ..............."

    Oh dear, I suspect a clash with mutual exclusiveness.

  2. I was thinking the same thing as Joe in regards to chip shops and weight loss goals.

    Have a great time on your days off.

  3. He will be fine, as long as he doesn't swallow.....

  4. thinks........ comes up with the 'New Beer and Chips Diet', publishes small, expensive book, sells millions, becomes disgustingly wealthy. Perhaps that is why he hasn't been blogging much lately.....

  5. Obviously working on the vi'jo as wew

  6. OK, ye of little faith ... I went away, I guzzled moderately, I put on a couple of pounds, I lost it again. Beer was drunk, and also chips were consumed, but only in modest quantities. Weight-wise, I am the same as when I went away.

    I call that a success. Had a good time too, of which more in another post.

  7. And DErf, you've lost me there.
