Putting the wee fecker back together was half an hour of drinking time wasted, but it is working though as usual with such things I have a screw loose err I mean left over.

Today I finished my thumper and made some everlasting ptfe gaskets according to samohans instructions. Ran Urnestine in pot mode + thumper. Had about 20l of apple wine that was too dry so ran that. It's my first run so didn't have any backset for the thumper, I put some questionable blackberry wine in the thumper instead. Started run and found a teeny tiny leak, aborted run and fixed leak. Got back up to temp and found another feckin teeny tiny leek, fixed that and started run again. Went really well after that, first 4 jars came off at at 75%. Put them on one side and collected everything till 30%. Had to have a little sip, I know it should have rested but com on its my first ever run :D. V happy with it, got promise. Brandyish, but BlackBerry in the thumper made a difference, nice. Off to bed now, happy to have popped my cherry, sea fishing tomoz, cool!

This could get long and off topic.

On Friday night I was out spending silly money on exes and children, 60 miles away from my hovel and got a train to within 10 miles, had a pint, then got a taxi.

On Sunday I woke up with the same money as I left the last pub with.

I spent several hours yesterday phoning every taxi company I can think of wanting to replace the plasticky receipt I must have given them by mistake with one of these feck awful new placticky banknotes that I thought I'd paid with.

They have all been told to speak up by Friday or the money goes to charity. It's not my fault I was drunk?
