The many names (uses) of Cobley

A man of many names, and many uses. I am always looking for new names and new uses… Tweet

Plan B, run Forest run…

I decided not to make it out on my bike, but instead went for a 6 mile run, which was a good idea as I was tired from yesterday, and a beasting around Macc Forest after not being on the bike for a while would probably write the rest of the day off and tomorrow. [...]

Venturing out on the mountain bike

Well, I had a lie in and refused to make the 8.30am gathering with Mr Shields this morning; 7.30am in old time. Instead I am going to mount the trusty steed – the one I fell off recently. Let us hope I do not do the same today. The cunning plan is to cruise around [...]

Argh…

Life as captain of Cobley Inc can prove to be tiresome at times, especially when working in an advertising agency. I love everyone in the world and “I kiss you,” but life can be bothersome with lots to do, being tired etc, but hey the sun is out, out, out! Let us all embrace search [...]

Today’s word is batrachophagous

Today’s word is batrachophagous; please do look it up and let me know if you are able to use it in the common vernacular. For example when talking to a stranger in a pub over a pint of beer, feel free to drop this useful word into conversation. Tweet

Waking up with coffee…

I managed to catch up on sleep after not getting much the night before and enjoying a nice cup of coffee in the company flat in central Leeds. Thirteen floors up, but it is clearly a Leeds pea souper outside. Glad I am not on the M62. A day of appointment making with one client [...]

Tarantara…

About to do my duty as a Policeman in our forthcoming production of The Pirates of Penzance. Really looking forward to the rehearsal today and the fun the comes with that. Having said that quite tired to say the least. Yawn… I was shattered yesterday and was in bed for 7.30pm and slept all the [...]
