So this time last week I was sunning myself in the in laws back garden for a BBQ after the day before in the back yard with my moobs out and Speedo’s on (More Speedo news later) Caught that much of a “Jackie Chan” that midweek at my daughters parents evening one of the teachers commented “Have you been away?” Sadly not, Costa Del Aigburth Vale that la. Fast forward to this weekend and yesterday was one of the grimmest days weather wise for ages. Now some of you might know my alter ego as Liverpool Weather Live on Twitter. For the record (Records since December 2003) Saturday April 27th recorded 30.0mm of rain. Thus just about going the famous “Club 30” that is days in Liverpool with over 30mm of rain (I can see I am losing a few of you) It became only the 7th day of 30mm or above rainfall recored on my weather station in Liverpool. I know you are all asking well what are the others. Wait no more.
1 44.5mm 20/07/2010
2 37.6mm 29/07/2012
3 35.8mm 10/06/2016
4 31.8mm 28/02/2017
5 31.5mm 15/05/2013
6 30.5mm 24/10/2005
So there you go. What a difference a week makes.
Today was the London Marathon and quite frankly thank fuck I didn’t get in this year. One of my mates was running it and well done on the finish. This time last year I was pounding the streets of London. Tracking my mate I was inspired to go out for a run today and managed 6 of the 26 miles ! Having done 4 marathons I am not sure I have the dedication to drag my fat arse back around 26 miles to do another one. All the great weight loss of last year has all been put back on. Those 4 months of no ale at the start of 2018 and 22 mile training runs are a dim a distant memory. This years aim is just to make sure my shorts aren’t snug for Glastonbury this summer and I can confirm the 12 months putting the weight back on was much better compared to the first 4 months of 2018 losing it all. Top diet tip “Always keep your fat pants” Luckily enough in the social media age we can look back at pictures.
So here is me just before The London Marathon 2018
Here is me on London Marathon Day 2019
What a difference a year makes !
So on that depressing note I have just been the pub for four pints to see my Aunty Kathleen who is up for a visit. That 4 pints in the afternoon in a boozer is a bastard amount. Neither not enough to carry on your daily business and not enough for a proper session. So I thought I would have a double vodka and orange and fire a blog out. The aim is to last until about 9pm and then have one of the kids Easter Eggs off and retire to bed.
Anyway just checked my phone and this has just happened only the one and only Elton Welsby has just randomly followed me on Twitter. Me and my mate Ritchie love all things retro and are still reeling from this bombshell.
So Sunday a few beers, meet the family and Elton Welsby follows you on Twitter. If Carlsberg done sundays…….. @faymondo73 if yer wanna follow
