  1. The good weather must be helping as well. Just wait until it gets cold, wet and windy!

  2. I’ll be still out there … but I suspect others might not.

  3. This is off topic and refers to a much earleir blog from August or somewhen but…
    where does the phrase toerag or toe-rag come from (I prefer it un-hyphenated, or should that be unhyphenated) . My dearly beloved ex who hailed from Deptford used it as a gently insulting comment and it does appear in an Eric Clapton lyric on Pilgrim but … is it Cockney or what?

  4. Mike – no idea where toe-rag comes from. It’s good, though, isn’t it? I think on reflection it needs the hyphen though … otherwise it’s hard for the uninitiated to know how to pronounce it.

    Any etymologists out there?

  6. And the OED agrees … so it must be true
