This one seems to have ended badly although no-one has got their feet wet so perhaps we should feel grateful.

Happy Friday all! After changing jobs and ending the frequent flying I'm back in the FLounge for the first time in 2 months, going home to GLA to see the mighty Glasgow Warriors play Leinster tomorrow then birthday tea in the new Brewdog in Glasgow's Merchant City. Can't wait...

(Except it's wild in Glasgow tonight so I'm expecting a diversion. And the rugby may get waterlogged. But that would mean more beer).

I always enjoyed playing on soggy pitches ... it slowed everyone else down to my plodding [No 8] pace

There is water falling from the sky in California. Everyone is quite puzzled as to what it might be; top scientists have been consulted.

Still haven't got around to getting it cut. Maybe I should just wait until it falls out naturally and save myself 100 pesos.

34c here and rising. Not nice at all.

There is more than enough of it here in the UK which you're welcome to!

Happy Friday folks, a quiet one for me, chilling with a bottle of red wine and a movie tonight. I came across my box set of Laurel and Hardy which I haven't seen for years so I am going to watch a few episodes tomorrow.

Very funny slapstick stuff (especially the Piano going up the stairs episode) and better than half the modern rubbish we see nowadays, in my humble opinion.

Quiet weekend for us. Early kick off at the rugby in Glasgow tomorrow and probably a couple of quiet beers tomorrow night. One real positive is I have booked my flight for our re-scheduled match in Paris against Racing 92 after our call off following the now infamous night of carnage in the city in November. I'm looking forward to going back.

Have a great weekend folks.
