Having root canal treatment then the tooth cracking so have to have it removed anyway. The fact it happened just outside the limit for treatment which meant I had to pay again.

Thanks to you fj, I now know a new word; desultory.

Because I've spent literally the whole of my life not knowing that word even existed, when I could have been flagrantly using it, all this time. Better late than never, I suppose.

Torrington place and the surrounding area.

Bloody another cycling moan, they have converted the area into what I can only consider a cyclist paradise. But by God you're taking your life into your hands every time you cross a pelican crossing. They just don't seem to care who has right of way.

Bend it like Repka wrote:Running junior team sports. Sometimes just the most annoying, frustrating, soul destroying exercise on the planet.

I accept that not all parents are dedicated to the sports their kids play, and they can't run their entire lives around sporting events, but by the same account if you want little Timmy to be in a team, and that team to actually function over a season so that it doesn't fold through lack of numbers, then you can't just dip in and out when it suits you.

I bust my butt giving advance warning of games and events. But when the week arrives it a constant stream of sorry, we forgot, have double booked, are going camping, day tripping to London, picking daisies or trying trombone classes.

I dream of the concept of selection problems through having a big squad. Nothing would make me happier than to tell little Timmy's parents he not playing this week as he hasn't been to training for a month.

Sorry, rant over.
I know exactly where you are coming from. Ran a youth rugby team - training nights lucky if a dozen turned up - when there was a match on over 20 turn up.

My view was that those who regularly turned up for training always started irrespective of how good they were - didn't go down well. Message was simple - turn up for training and you play!!

Could apply the same to adults sports too really, the amount that drop out last minute etc

I've always been taught, if you say you are going to do something, then do it unless there are special reasons or you give loads of notice in advance,

Yes Samba, you're right.

Always seems as if they close half of Surrey's roads off for the event as well. I know it's fun for a lot of people, but I find it f**king irritating! I'll be holed up in the flat with a nice bottle of wine and my, hopefully, new BBQ.

Maybe that's why Dan's disappeared?

No, he took on one DIY home lighting project too many, and electrocuted himself.

Leave it out, electricity would not affect Dan. He'd put it in a headlock then run 50k and do a few hundred pushups, before earthing himself and laughing at the face of Mr Amp....
