So I'm geting Jack dressed and I think, that shirt looks a bit big, so I check, and it's a 26" with no name in it, when his are all 22/24 with his name on the label.
Probably Edward's (who isn't in today) but there's a chance we may never find out.
And one of his remaining two has some kind of marker on it that won't come out.
Maybe we'll be buying a couple of new ones after all.

Digital freeview box - badged Setanta, but with the Setanta viewing card removed as it's now useless - at Asda for under 8 quid. Still works as a Freeview box obviously.

As occasionally happens if one leaves one's online bookie accounts dormant, BetFair sent me an email offering to give me a fiver after the weekend if I bet a fiver by Saturday - and it had to be a multiple on the tennis.
So, I just picked 5 really short-price favourites from today's matches - the rolled-up odds over the accumulator was just about dead-on even money, tha's how short the individual odds were.
Bet came in, so I make my quid (or 20% of stake, sounds better, eh?), and I look forward to my fiver coming along shortly. Huzzah etc.
Was wondering whether to extend my F1 hedge to BArrichello and/or Webber, but I really don't think they've got it in them. I make money whether Button or Vettel is champion, and unless something changes radically I can't see anybody else getting a sniff.
I might ship a bit over to BetFair's poker room and play a small (or a couple of very small) SnGs. Or maybe they have a tinystakes PLO8 cash game...
I really ought to investigate their freerolls, too.

FOTA and the FIA have reached an agreement.
Max will not seek re-election.
No other detail yet, except that it looks like the cost-reduction will be introduced more slowly.

FOTA to set up breakway series

Could be the ultimate bluff, of course.

I dunno how many sossies you buy at a time, but with our gluten-free requirements we sometimes go to specialists, which makes a slightly larger order more sensible.

The box was 24x13x10 inches.

Take 1" off both width and length for packing, 2" or a little under off the height for packing and chillbags.
That still leaves around 2200 cubic inches of space for sossies - though some of it's taken up by the bonus burgers...

I think we can say we're sorted for sossige, for some time to come.

OTOH, I promised the butcher in Tod Market I'd buy some off him tomorrow.

OK, so to please my dear son, I've proved one can complete Peggle Nights using only Lord Cinderbottom.
I can't recommend it though: final score under 20million.
