Been working in Dorridge this week on an executive estate .
There was a big union Jack up on Wednesday for the queen's birthday but nothing today

I'd have thought someone who is aware enough for the 21st would be switched on enough to repeat it today ?🤔

Today I saw a fantastic St George flag with bunting displayed outside the front of a house in of all places - Coundon! AKA the 33rd county of Ireland.

Is it fair for a chippy to charge extra to wrap your fish and chips separately?!

Come to central Scotland if you really want to be overcharged for fish and chips, you won't see any change from £8 & it will be the worst you've ever had & if you ask for a pie they will put it in the fryer ffs!! Every time I come down to Coventry it's the first takeaway I get

Missus lived on the NE Scottish coast, the worst fish and chips anywhere despite it coming right off the boats. Around Cov/Leamington/Warwick is the best I've had.

I've found 2 chip shops, 1 in Bridge of Allan and 1 in St Andrew's that were ok, still.not as good or as cheap as those I've been to in Rugby or Coventry

St Andrews' ones are less good than those in the villages further along the coast. The place I lived had a chip van that beat them all but only arrived once a week!

The chippies in Bournemouth are 99% toilet. Even the prestigious Chez Fred was average, despite queuing for ages for the best in Bournemouth. (And most expensive)

My wife who booked me a hair cut today at 3.30pm as well as my sons so I missed most of the match, she said so you’ve seen most this year.

The mouse we had in our garage last year, I have decided to play cricket again got my boots out and the little bastard had eaten the toes and made a house in the shoe, glad I broke his neck last year now.

Craving takeaway/restaurant food, then realising you could have cooked food to stay similar standard at 1/4 of the price.

When your under 9s manager somehow manages to forget to book a referee for this mornings game, so you get roped into refereeing the game. I may never swear at a referee again. 😂

Are we actually getting a live 'commentary'? Give us updates as you go along.
Your user name has finally come home to roost!
No thank Christ I’m home now for a coffee and a fag 😂. That was far to much exercise for a Sunday morning! I hope I was shit, they won’t ask me to do it again. Had to stop myself a couple of times from getting my head on a few balls 🤦🏻‍♂️

Well at least I presume you gave your lad's team a few dodgy pens and called offside for any threatening moves by the other team - 15-0?

Their under 9s so no offsides or dodgy pens to give I’m afraid. We got beat 4-2 so fingers crossed I’m seen as a bad luck charm and they don’t ask me to do it again 👍

Cheap scissors.
Instead of separating something into 2 pieces, shitty cheap scissors simply fold it in half, and leave a crease in the middle. Bastards.
