Brutal. Hope it goes OK. I'll try and contribute on Friday with some cleverly disguised swearing to trick the censorship stars.

Bit of a shock this morning, going into town over the river and instead of the chap selling the Big Issue at the bridge, there are just a lot of flowers and notes, he was 52 and suffered a stroke last week, rushed to the ;local hospitsl, his comndition deteriorated and there were plans to airlift him to Bristol, but he died before it could happen. He was a local fixture, out there selling in every weather, and always a friendly word to everyone. He made no secret of the fact that he had had problems with drugs and alcohol addiction, and had spent time in prison but had turned his life around.

That sounds horrible. The husband had one a few years back, he certainly doesn't want another one! Roll on Saturday.

That's sad. Similar situation with my old home town's BI seller. They become a big part of a close knit town and are very missed. Such a shame they never know how much.

We are having at "active shooter drill" at work tomorrow. In itself this doesn't piss me off, but that it's considered "normal" does.

Never had one at work, but the fact that my daughter's only nine and she's had to experience these drills, and at least one lockdown (in fairness one of them was for a suspected pedo on the loose so I'll let that one slide, but still) in her life is ****ing depressing, to be quite honest.

My son had several of those during his school career.

I don't remember my son ever having a drill, and the only lockdown he had was when that bent cop shot himself in town but decided to make it look like he was murdered so the entire county went into a panic. All because he was stealing from the kids' explorers fund. Dumbass mother****er.

Cheers MP, I might play on it a bit and just loll about in bed on Saturday. Scouse can peel me some grapes.

That's very sad Mike, and as MP said it's also sad that he probably didn't even know how people felt about him. A good reminder to us all. I hope he's resting in peace now after a such a hard life.

This scares the shite out of me. I feel for you and everyone whose day to day life now includes these drills.

Some toad just stole our downstairs glazing.

The good news is that the replacements are being fitted.

The not quite so good news is that the bedroom windows "won't open because the ceiling is too low"

Plan "B" is to board the bedrooms up whilst supplier 'sorts it'.

Slightly better news is that it's not raining.

Yet.
