Went to a hotel near Zürich airport, where some friends were staying prior to flying out early this morning. The hotel bar was selling a quite palatable german beer for 7 Francs a litre. That's about £1.75 a pint. And there was a huge plasma screen to watch German get beat. Result. :yay:

I spent Saturday daytime removing a laurel hedge from my mates back garden. We did about 1/3 of it and we were knackered.
I then spent 6 hours in front of the computer working.

Sunday, we saw our wedding photographer (thankfully she's not a psycho) and then I spent another 9 hours working.

Do wedding photographers have a reputation for being psycho?

Saturday had the kids while the wife had her hair done. While out and about, the seal on my diesel filter decided to give up life and spewed diesel everywhere so I had to get that fixed.

Saturday PM went to a 1st birthday party. Why the flip do people have 1st bday parties? The kid knows nothing, remembers nothing and cos they are religious, no one drinks. I hate going there. They have to say grace before eating. I hate food getting cold! :(

Sunday, did nothing. Which was nice.

We went to futurewife's cousin's wedding last month. Photographer was rude, patronising and untidy, with psychotic tendencies - he threatened to stab one of the guests with his tripod*.

Went to Wimbledon and watched some tennis on centrecourt.
Then on Sat watched the cricket at Lords, England were awful, NZ thrashed them. And won the series.

Yesterday just played a lot of teninis.

Very pleasant weekend.

The variable form (of both sides) has been most perplexing for this one day series.

Unfortunately England (for us natives) have had three days of "completely dire" whereas NZ have only had one.

Actually it has panned out pretty much as expected imo

NZ is a far better one day side than England ,and England is a far better test side than NZ. Both sides just confirmed thier rankings in the various formats.

NZ should have won 4/5 if the umpires and rain hadnt had a brain fart in the 2nd match.

NZ also could have drawn the test series if they had been a little bit more mature in the second test, squandering a near 200 run first innings lead is an absolute shocker. But a drawn series wouldnt have reflected the strengths of the 2 sides.

Waited for baby to arrive - now a week overdue. Bored of waiting now.

Mainly spent time eating and going for not too taxing bimbles around the park.

Which is why I find it so hard to believe that the one game Eng did win, they absolutely caned NZ.

It's seems Eng's one-day form is directly related to how bothered Pieterson is about keeping his wicket.

Spent most of it trying to dig out the roots of a large holly bush from the front garden being watched by an especially dim racing pidgeon that seems to have decided we are it's new owners.

It's been here a week now and shows no signs of wanting to leave or of being able to look after itself. We found it outside the back door yesterday in a torrential downpour, sitting in a puddle, soaking wet and apparently unable to work out that it should try and find somewhere dry to sit.

It's tame enough that it will happily let you pick it up but as soon as you try and get it to fly anywhere it just flaps back to the ground and sits there looking at you. It gives every impression of being far happier walking than flying.

Does it have a ring? I believe somebody from north of the Watford Gap will be able to help you trace it's owner if it does.

Have you tried sticking a broom up her chuff and getting her to sweep the yard whilst she hangs out the washing?*

What is the maximum they go over? Is it induced at 42 weeks?

Well, that's what the Midwives would have you believe. It's all very 'we don't allow' and 'it's not our policy', but Mrs OG is sensible enough to make up her own mind. We'll get to the weekend and then she'll decide what to do.

It does and we've contacted the owner, they've agreed to come and collect it next weekend if it still shows no sign of leaving under it's own steam.

We had a lot of racing/homing pigeons where I used to live, and when they get sold they get 'confused' about where they should be going.
If one turned up at the wrong place they got 'binned' then taken home. They dont go back there again. To 'bin' a pigeon, take one empty old-fashion dustbin, put pigeon in and put lid on. Beat bin hard with sticks for 10 minutes.
Harsh but effective.

**Do not try this at home**
