      Wife and kids away for weekend so off to celebrate Cam Smiths nice pocket money with an afternoon few Guinness and horse punting. Prefer to chat in the pub and not be constantly looking at the phone for bets so have come up with a novel approach today backing number 1 in every race today so if we happen to be watching a race I know who to cheer for. I doubt the punting purists would approve .51 bets. Check any balance tonight

            'Roadrunner' that documentary about Anthony Bourdain is now on Netflix. Well worth a spin

                Does anyone watch Barry?


                There was one moment there in S03E05 where he lets his guard down talking to the girlfriend that just has to go down as pure epic tv. Had to rewatch it a few times it was that good.

                                Same here, landed in West Kerry yesterday for the week, booked almost a year ago so happy coincidence with AI.

                                I have a couple of courses booked so fingers crossed it clears up in the next couple of days.

                                Its the first time I’ve ever felt I actually needed a break from work. I’ll take that as a sign of growing up.

                                  I'm off to Maderia today no idea why I booked it because it looks very very boring

                                  Tried to change it but was costing a fortune..with my expectations so low I'm hoping I might enjoy it. Anyone ever been there?

                                      Theres a Travel Man episode with Ayoade and Robert Webb, but that programme never makes anywhere look too exciting.

                                          Had dinner in Seabank in Malahide last night somehow for the first time. Food was amazing. Seafood platter shared for starters and Monkfish Curry for main. They had Dover Sole that looked amazing too. Not cheap but well worth it. Decent Gavi Di Gavi to wash it down

                                                SPOILER

                                                It ends up that somehow she pretends it never happened[, if I'm right it will be the third time they've done that

                                                    Took the Dublin coach to airport as airport parking is gone so expensive..bus is fucking grim. There was a dirty tissue on the empty seat beside me which I had to flick off with my shoe. Rubbish all over the floor
                                                    There is a lad sitting right in front of me and Holy fuck I'd say he hasn't washed himself or his clothes in months..its so bad I actually feel like puking.. Every breed of a fucking yoke on it

                                                      Dooks for definite. The original plan was Mahonys tomorrow but that might not suit so either the new Maine Valley course or Beaufort during the week.

                                                      Not sure if you’re going to Killarney for poker but I booked a line for the Friday Sept 30th, 2 spots available I’d say if you’re interested.

                                                      Thats an open invite to anyone interested of course and no need to confirm now, I can mention it again closer to the time.

                                                          I’m going in the opposite direction, can’t seem to bring it together. As Switch will tell you, nobody has more swing thoughts than me.

                                                          I was out with a man on Friday off an index of -0.5, he’s in his 60s and he played what I would say is as close to perfect golf as an amateur could.
                                                          Incredible stuff, doesn’t hit it far or anything but the lack of mistakes.
                                                          I’ve played rounds with a few guys who are lower but he’s the only person I’ve ever played with where I’ve been blown away by their game.

                                                                    Not too disappointed though as some nice birds on view at the pub we were in and a good craic was had by all.

                                                                    Great to see Kerry win after a few years in the wilderness... Proper order is restored!

Couldn't say no, did feel a bit of a shit telling my friend though! Think that's the sixth time I've seen the Kingdom win Sam, first two times were 1984 and 1985.

We have used the crisis as an opportunity to rebuild the entire IT infrastructure form the ground up and so we are packing implementation of years worth of would be nice to do when we have time and money projects into weeks. Whole thing has been an extraordinary experience and incredibly stressful especially for management and those in the direct line of fire of having to rebuild everything.

                                                                                                                        Its been 12 days since the first symptoms, testing clear since Saturday, I'm still a little bit chesty and bolloxed tired after my first day in the office for a couple of weeks.
