    The blackbirds in my garden (especially after putting out sultanas for them).

    My lobster linguine. (Sometimes I use scallops – they’re good too).

    My ability to throw good money after bad. I suspect I’m a professional when it comes to that.

    Watching Steve Smith not refer an lbw in a WC final only to find he should have.

    My old SS Singular Peregrine – 14 years and still most ridden bike.

    Technics 1210 Mk2 turntables, built like tanks, serviced once in more than 30 years.

    Pressing play on DJ Shadow’s Entroducing, Portishead’s first album or Massive Attack’s Mezzanine.

    Seeing daughter grow up to be a very funny and caring young lady.

    3 pages in and no mention of “coke and hookers”?

    Riding my bike! Well, often my riding is disappointing but it’s always better than being stuck in the house.

    That’s a good call. First wheel build. In a hurry as we had a replacement rim to go on the lad’s back wheel before an event. The next day, following him down practice day at a Golfie enduro and it still being true and tight at the end. Both surprised and very happy! The spoke key in my pocket was unused. 🙂

    …someone else’s pulled pork chili. Even if it’s not great, it’s good and I didn’t have to make it.

    Walking into my shed,sometimes I just stand for a few minutes scanning all that makes it mine.
    Like a huge comfort blanket.
