Roll on Saturday the 14th

My rhododendron has just come into flower.

The Friday the Thirteenth bug has hit me yet again. I did write about this some time ago, here, but I thought I'd share the pain with you dear, patient blogger.

You see, my mother, being a cockney is really superstitious and I guess I take it from her. I have no idea if it's a prerequisite to be a cockney not to want to walk under ladders but I never do.

I'm in a strange mood right now for reasons I won't bore you with. Not, strange-'bad' or strange-'weird' you understand but after a sort of low-key epiphany, I've made some decisions about my future at work which means less of it from next year. Therefore I feel strangely different.

Anyway, less of that and back to one of the unluckiest days of the year. Well it's always a bad start when you run out of tea bags at work and I forgot to take some. A morning without tea cannot be substituted by coffee, which I am trying to cut down on.

As if that wasn't bad enough, I was having lunch with a friend having a serious chat when I cracked a tooth on sausage and stuffing and onion pie and it disintegrated - the tooth, not the pie! Bollocks.

This is the worst one - I have pulled a muscle right at the top of my arm and I have no idea at all how or why it happened. Bizarre, anyway, it hurts like hell and I'm sat here typing with a heated wheat bag under my shirt looking vaguely like someone who's just about to have an Alien explode out from under his shoulder.

So there we are - nothing disastrous, just a series of bad luck things which has prompted me to believe that Friday the 13th is haunting me.

I hope you've had a good week, mine's been up and down but I am so looking forward to the weekend. It's ages since I've done a joke or a list, so here's something that a colleague sent me by text a couple of days ago:
