Lidl have submitted a planning application for where the old Ford dealership was on Muller Road. This pleases the scummer in me.

I had put on a couple of pounds on holiday, but a week of throwing myself 100% into training got me a 9 pound loss this week - nearly 6 and a half stone this year :D

Oldest I've got is a Motorhead one from 1983. That's one I'd never part with as it was the first time I went to a gig and the first time I got served in a pub. At the tender age of 13. :D

My first band shirts (Metallica and GNR) are from 1992 but they don't count cos I didn't go to the tours in question...and I bought them from C&A. :lol: I was about 13 at the time.

That's really good going. Bet your times (or however you're measuring training performance) have improved a lot too.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

Had a really good day off today. Saw a friend, she taught me how to make hay/grass bracelet type things, and we went and saw Lucy at the cinema which was a bit weird but pretty enjoyable.

Finally got to eat good sushi and found kangaroo mince on special (and not because it was about to expire).

Is this just beer and syrup? I had a strawberry flavoured Belgian beer from Sainsburys - something beginning with B, was nice but was hellishly expensive for a small bottle and I did buy it because I thought it was made from actual strawberrys. Silly of me really.

Had a really good day with a uni friend in Canterbury. She even managed to make me forget how horrendously hungover I am :lol:

Spent just under £80 on myself for a load of new clothes. I now have things like a snuggly jumper to get me through the autumn and winter months :D
