Yeah, I try not to complain too much about things here. Funnily enough my rope arrived yesterday but it's thin as **** so I'll have to plait it to make it usable. It'll do the job-climbs and pulls day tomorrow so I'll get it plaited tonight. Haha, talking of sheer ***gotry on the dog front; my Malamute is a complete arse bandit when it comes to running (unless he's after sheep or something equally weak and incapable of defending itself) and I can't take him running up the mountain cos he refuses to budge more than 5 mins.lol. Incredible, considering the supposed history of these sled dogs. I've had to cancel my kayaking today cos the little gayboy's a bit under the weather and the missus doesn't want to leave him alone. I dunno who's the softest, the mutt or me for agreeing to the wife's instructions. The kayaking season will be kicking off tomorrow though and there's a great site to hang the rings and rope on a little island I go to. As long as there's not a family of chavs out there on their ****in speed boat I should be nice and chilled for a couple of hours.
