Tomorrow I'm off to Chester for two days for a Birthday party. Dan Clarke turns 30 he used to do all my cooking at uni and take my underpants out the washing machine and make me cups of tea. At the moment I wash my own underpants there's No lady in my life. I still cannot cook much except ropey scrambled egg. I make the cups of tea in a great collection of ceramic mugs. It's set to be a good couple of days in Hollyoak Country for this celebration; I myself will keep my eyes peeled for any footballer WAG's and perhaps con Dan into buying the tea at least once.

So I took a hike to my local bakery on the search for lunch and on offering the lady my 10 pound note in these credit crunch times to pay for my sarnie; I had a flash of inspiration to do this doodle. Whilst listening to the best of Stereophonics in a navy tee whilst doing a funny accent and sneezing and tapping my foot singing I've completed my doodle.
The other morning I spotted a Fox on the road whilst I was out on my bike. Plus a few drivers swerving about who probably shouldn't have been on the road. I've finally won again another runny nose and cold. Plenty of hot drinks for me then on the cards. Good times its christmas this week everyone in reminding me.

Thirty readers they tell me I don't look a day over 25.

Readers I know this is a cartoon of a dangerous act balancing a teapot and pouring a brew into a cup balanced on my arm. But I actually did this, I was trained by David Carradine to do this and walk on rice paper. Just don't copy this dangerous pass time. Other news it was freezing this morning out on my bike. There was frost and everything I even stuffed Monday's copy of the Metro down my jersey for a layer of insulation. Don't laugh they do it in the Tour de france only the newspaper is French.

Sunday evening and I've been cooked up Pheasant and Chips; Now Jamie Oliver and his Ministry of Food campaign didn't rustle that dish up. I don't believe Nigella has this dish in her new cook book either doing the rounds currently with all the other cook books for christmas. Pheasant and Chips readers?
Early this morning I've been interested in the art direction with some press ads for the brand with the crocodile. Lovely women in some interesting scarfs and jumpers; it looks like Wham's last christmas pop video on acid or summet. Or maybe thats just me taking the description to far. I've concluded track four "Everybody Knows" is a winner on the new John Legend album. At the time of writing this Ive had 5 cups of tea at 9.15 am. I shall be out on my bike for a ride later on.

Today I just feel knackered but managed 14 miles on the bike in the wind in lycra. I think its gonna be a long week ahead. Peppered with more Guy and Madonna headlines and credit crunch dialogue and daniel craig 007 imagery in the media. At least I've got another Bukowski book to read plus tea bags.

Its a saturday evening I cannot be bothered with Brucie and his ball room dancing on the Beeb. I thought I'd do some emails and just potter online. Perhaps shop online for the GI- joe with the kung fu grip as a present to myself. With my GI- joe I'll arm wrestle anyone that mentions the credit crunch. Or I could just mention cycling in the dark requires a good set of lights on your bike to be safe. This blog entry was not brought to you by the Doncaster Borough Council nor was it scripted whilst I sat in a high vis jacket with a red top close by.

Today I was up early doors over to Bolton to collect some posters I've had done they look alreet readers. On the way I bumped into Mr Lee Ford. I bored someone on the train home to Donny from Manchester to Sheffield I'm sure with my conversation. I finally finished reading the Russell Brand biography on the way over to Bolton. The sun has been out. Ive had at least five cups of tea at the time of writing. Im almost worn out this week.
