The Time Machine

welcome back, gentle reader.

I will be right back .......


don't panic, i'm back, not lost in time like our intrepid un-named hero. in case you are wondering, i just popped back to see where my one day weekend went ...

friday night. managed to fire up the poker in time for rTr league game. think i managed fifth, no money but points in the bag as ricky bust before me. i was knackered and with no beer ffs !! managed bed by the witching hour, much to H's surprise. ( get in yer time machine, scoot forward a few lines to see where H came from )
saturday morning, swimming with my eldest. after lunch a trip to the builders merchant ... as the song said, " and it was shut " ! off home again, tea time :) kidz all bathed, get them off to bed, then made the mistake of dropping into our local blockbuster ... at mrs dD's suggestion ... fk it, i hate that term " mrs dD " so lets call her by her proper name ... " H " ... thats better ! ah yes, blockbuster ... and i thought they rented dvd's ... well, up to date ones anyway. honestly, my movie collection is better. what a waste of fcuking time. eventually found something watchable with Denzell Washington. attempt to watch a 2 hr movie ... poor wee Hannah, chest infection, on double dose antibiotics, just started eating again yesterday ... no full nappies for two days ... decides that tonights the night for a full nappy release ... twice ... i swear to god, a small elephant would have been proud !! a serious two man job cleanup operation :) just as well i was not ensconced in front of the pc ... think we watched the movie in a little over 3 hours, ho hum.
off H went to bed .. btw, H and I are getting along short term ok ... but... there are two long term problems we face and i have no clue as to how to resolve them. made H well aware of them ( she has never acknowledged them before ) and to be honest i think she is a bit stumped as well :(
so fired up the poker, accompanied by a few small glasses of red wine. been hitting the $1 45-man mtt's on fullTilt and pokerStars. doing not to badly since i really really really find it hard to concentrate for such small stakes ... you should be proud of me Mik :)
stars is good, since i play the rTr friday game and the bloggerment, both $5, my roll is still over the initial $100, thanks to two first places in the one dollar mtt.
fullTilt ... well, it was ok until i ran into this retard. i get the bullets, push in half my stack (t600) one caller, push the rest in on a K high flop and he calls ... with K8 off ... and of course hit his 8 for a wonderful two pair ... retard. pissed me off no end so i fired up two $10 stt's ... busto in both for fuck all return ... hee haw !! dented my FT roll down to $85... damn it !

damn, look at the time ... " I will be right back ....... "

just checked, fullTilt $ 82 ....... pokerStars $ 119

where was i ?
ah yes, Sunday. up early with the boys, H went back to bed for some much needed shuteye. she was up two hours later and me and the youngest boy shoot off to the swimming pool. our local authority state that any children under 8 needs one to one supervision :) i really enjoy these one to one with the boys, great fun :)
back home for a late lunch, get my mum over for a few hours to watch the kids ... i thought i would get a few hours to myself as H said she didn't want to do anything, hah ! she decides she needs out, so off we go for coffee ... and a troop round the supermarket for dinner. back home, tea time ! then baths for the boys and off to bed for story time ...

and i quite literally sat down to play the bloggerment 1 min before the start ...

so i hope your weekend went well and yours seemed like a 3 night 2 day affair.

sigh, not long 'till friday ...
