Got a wedding to attend this weekend.
I have suits, but it's a tartan do..which is fair enough, but I'm not a kilt man (they're a bit of a faff), so it's Trews for me again.
Check out how cool I'd be if I was four stone lighter (and twenty five years younger)  :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy: : https://www.confetti.co.uk/bridalwear/menswear/slaters_87/mens-kilt-hire_255/argyll-jacket_9201

Anyhoo, I'm quite surprised to find that I can still tie a full Windsor (good for a short waistcoat), despite not having a need for several years.

...still way easier than a formal bow tie, which is sort of like tying your shoelaces with bits folded back, but as soon as you overthink it, it falls apart or ends up wonky.  :azn:

Silly pointed shoes in that photo. They're like those jester shoes from the Middle Ages.
Enjoy the do.

Binned the trews idea.
Slaters do the traditional military jobs that cover the belly button, which are nae good if you have bit of a gut on you.  :cheesy:
(It's not a big belly, but you still feel like your wearing Oliver Hardy high waisters)  :cheesy:

The ones I've bought in the past were more of a modern cut that still fit around the waist, but with a big belt. Trewsers?  :grin:

I ordered some microfibre cloths from Amazon. They came in a box that would have held ten times the number. It's ridiculous.

I think the guy next door is in the process of pegging out.
There are about 5 paramedics in there working on him.

He's in hospital in an induced coma.
Apparently he just couped over and started to turn black, but the junkie through the wall saved his life. (They're well versed in CPR)  :wink:

This morning the radar weather app showed no rain at all. This was when I took this:

It rained all day apart from a brief pause mid afternoon.

Sometimes I despair for reviews from people

Obviously not a very technical person

It's not actually raining just now. A pause while Noah nips to B&Q for more nails.

That's not bad, considering their recent form.  :azn:

£1100 doesn't get you much in the way of hotel rooms in Central London at four days notice.
4 Star my arse.  :shocked:

I've actually got an apartment in Camden next week for less than the cost of the double room this week.

My HTPC is 1809, my heavily used laptop and PC are both still on 1803 despite innumerable updates since.
