An extremely mundane stomach bug is residing in the jock household this weekend. Poor little tinyman had it first and now it's my turn.

I don't know what's worse the smell of puke or the smell of disinfectant.

Oh bless.

The woman in front of me in the supermarket queue the other day had a 10k bag of sugar in her trolley. I wouldn't usually notice things like that, but it did stick out a bit. Ooh er.

Locker number three is now the only one with a wrist band thingy on the key. However, it's looking a bit as if it might go any minute, so I didn't put it round my wrist. Getting used to swimming without one now.

Nicely warming 7 gallons @ 6% (unless I sneak another kg of sugar in dreckly).

Not a bad yield.
7 gallons .... wimp! I guess you're making cider? I had a friend telling me last night that he has just made 10 gallons of wine - can't remember what ... but it doesn't really matter as it's just flavouring for the alcohol.

Somebody in work had a birthday today. She passed chocolates round.

I now realise I was probably meant to do that myself the other week.

That's you shagged for the next few weeks then!

Edited to correct misunderstanding!

When I said "shagged", I didn't mean "shagged", I meant fecked!

Edited again to correct another misunderstanding!

Let's just say that you may be in a difficult position with your workmates for the next few weeks!

Don't think so - I said 'oh - I didn't know we do this here' and they said 'well, you're new ...'

It's all that stuff of getting to know the workplace culture, innit.

The Jock residence stomach bug has now hit Kaz who has been ill all day with symptoms that are too gruesome even for ATD.

This of course means that myself although still weak as a kitten from said bug has bravely looked after our tiny terror by myself and been liberally spraying anti-bacterial cleaner over every surface. I've cooked and cleaned, fetched water and changed bedding despite having a temperature of a lot.

Sweating profusely due to the lingering effects of the life threatening bug, I've even had to answer the door whilst looking life a Bigfoot and am even planning a trip to the shops tomorrow for Lucozade.

I'm extremely hopeful that the patient will be able to do some of the aforementioned jobs herself tomorrow but I am realistically looking at having to lift a finger two days in a row affraid

Of course we have talked cider before, I have taken the big press down to save room and haven't got it back up yet, the scratter is dismantled in shed! I'm just using the little press to do a few gallons for crimbo, great year for apples here.

Is there a best apple for cider making? My neighour has two trees and passes over Bleheim Orange and James something or other. I generally just eat them but wondered about making a cider.

Nah she hasn't got anything as severe as that! I'm allowing her one more day in bed but at 6am tomorrow morning when tinyman wakes up I'm kicking her out of the bed.

Any apple will do the sweeter the better but you should also have some tannin which you should taste at the back of your throat as dry and acidic which should taste on your tongue as a lemon would. A mixture of all three should give you a balanced cider that will keep well. You can buy tannin to add to your brew, I never have I just press what we have and it's usually all right.

Wen't looking for the previous scratting thread

Cider is a form of alcopop for little boys not man enough to drink ale.  "I just don't like the taste of ale or lager".  Nobody does at first, you get used to it then it becomes alright and then it start tasting pretty good.  Cider drinkers need to grow a pair.  Put a bit of blackcurrant in it.  Poofs.

Now I've been busted as a gay cider drinking sissy boy does the same process apply with pears? The lady opposite has a pear tree and has a fair old crop (if that word applies).

I think you're triple busted, at least. We all know who your neighbour is - and now you tell us he gives you apples?

TBF it was probably Colin who had taken over his computer, having slipped down from the attic whilst nobody was at home, and posted such stuff.

My other neighbour Ivy "i'm 96 you know" is the polar opposite to Colin. Her garden is so lovely (her sons a gardener). I feel I need to post a picture but I'm hoping you'll take my word for it. Colin does have a lovely plum tree but it's so thickly surrounded by blackthorn we never see a crop. Sadly I'm very poor* and live in a terraced house hence the close proximity of two neighbours. Ya get me?

Mixed some pears in to brew last year. Way too sweet for even my sissy tastes. flower
