    I'm still trying to process our recent history in Kenya. Horrific.

    Apparently they offered him the job thinking he'd be resigning as an MP to work for them full time. And he's not.

    What a twat for thinking such a role could be part time.

    I only wish I could convey how low drama the whole affair was. Slow speed innocuous crash, unlucky outcome. Calmly and professionally dealt with.

    Why should people without children pay for schools' etc.

    To that the response should be that everybody benefits from a society with a higher standard of education.it reduces crime, boosts productivity etc etc

    Oooof flying back must have been a nightmare with all the kit

    We had about 50kg of kit with us because we'd been snowshoeing and climbing before we got on to the skiing. Jana was a pack horse for sure. Didn't turn out to be too bad though, lots of luggage trolleys around and taking things slow.

    I felt most sorry for mountain rescue who had to attend to me in -25. Sure, I got mild hypothermia but I'm pretty sure some of the medics got light frostbite in their fingers.

    Yeah, that was my intention too when I got back to the UK (did my ACL skiing on a glacier in Switzerland therefore getting home took a bit of time and a logistical effort).

    I managed to eat well for about four days before the "fuck its" started to happen.

    They are scavengers but they're also carnivores. Which is why dried food doesn't work so well for some dogs.

    Otto loves those pure sticks too but are you guys really comfortable paying £30 for 600g of shitty quality meat in stick form? It's daylight robbery!

    You could buy 6.5kg of chicken breast for that! Fuck you could buy 4kg of pre cooked chicken breast for the same money.

    We give Otto any old shit tbh. Whatever is super tasty and high value. That can be a bit of chicken, a dog biscuit or a tiny piece of cheese.

    That said, the moment you realise that supermarket chicken breast is cheaper than dog treats it does start to get you thinking. We have been known to bake a tray of chicken and chop into little bags to put in the freezer. Works out a fraction of the price of a dog specific training treat weight for weight.

    Tx, perhaps the COVID passes make the difference?

    IMHO they either make a difference directly or the constant reminder that the pandemic isn't over, through having to plan ahead, makes a difference.
