the weather today is great. all in all a hugely relaxing day. england were playing rugby against new zealand in wellington so the kick off was 08:00BST a rather good if tense way to start the day. we won but only just but it does bode well for the upcoming world cup.

after nipping into town this morning ( a stupid thing to do but i had to go to the bank) i have just been sat in the garden doing a bit of work and listening to some new albums.

tomorrow is set aside for paper-work... mainly to do with a new mortgage application which should make the old finances a lot more flexible should they need to be (if and when work dries up at the end of the year).
