Plus 12 and dry when driving in..

Supper last night with Patrick and Sarah Bailey (no relation!)..

It has been over a year since we saw each other.. we have all been there, but catching up last night along with David Manley, Emma, Patsy and Sandy Douglas was bloody good fun..

Talking sport..It is a busy week of sport.. Queens . Royal Ascot, Euros..Sadly due to the extended lockdown restrictions big crowds afer June 21 are a no no..bugger..

Then I got chased by a man with long hair and waving a guitar.
