    Nothing tonight - just staying in - which I'm really looking forward to.

    Tomorrow - Hairdressers for me and then we're out for dinner with friends... I expect to consume a lot of wine

    Sunday - Recover and make a curry from my new cookbook, cunningly titles - The Curry Book

    I am going to acquire an aircon unit for my flat, if that fails (shops are sold out so far) I will attempt to build some sort of evaporative cooling device. This will of course involve tools, which I will need to buy, so I am quite excited.

    With luck I will also be refining my lightning photography technique.

    I'm really looking at it as an excuse to by a Dremel. And perhaps a new soldering iron.

    The cooler itself will be some tea towels and a frame and some sort of ducting to connect it to some fans. Unless I can get a proper aircon unit.

    I'm going on a "Gentlemen's Weekend" in Bournemouth.

    They're probably smelling and making burping noises, as they generally do, but as for the Tester clan, we're out for dinner this evening in a local gastro-pubbish place, I'll be at athletics training tomorrow morning, then I'm giving a sprint training for a group of ladies from the rugby club and the handball club (even being paid for it as part of plan B), then relaxing with some fine burgundy.

    Sunday; ooh, training again, then a longish bike ride if the weather's good. Then roast lamb and some more burgundy, with probably a couple more glasses of burgundy to top it all off. Mind you, I've recently acquired a taste for Friesian whisky. It seems to combine a slight peatiness of a good single malt Scotch, with the hint of vanilla you get from Irish whiskey. Not bad at all.

    In what can only be described as a moment of total geekiness, I have just downloaded something called "solid edge" and I shall be designing cooling device using that. Assuming it isn't the most complicated thing in the world, which it might be.
