(Thursday) No short cuts today, 7/3, surging forwards accompanied by my trusty valet pulling the tartan musical instrument trolley. (If we can nick it from Nanna.) Other instruments also welcome if you want to play your own. Forwards for the freedom of all!

I am speechless. Unless they're on the way to warmer climes can we have them for the tartan trolley? Thanks chap.

Good luck, Sir. Slowly but steadily we progress. Our army builds, to the sound of the bugles. I move closer, conquering 9/2 today myself. Currently resting for Friday's 9/3. We shall not fail. With chocolate milk we fight on. Onward! *bugles forlornly*

Still a bit knack'd this morning. Thought that was the sound of 'budgies' not bugle. How many budgies would it take to lift and carry me the course? Certainly they'd be pretty forlorn. To be quite honest the way I'm feeling I think I'd rather take part in a real Forlorn Hope and end it all within seconds not 25 minutes. I'll have half strength banana milk if I get back. Get nan to pick some up from Gary when she pops to town for me.

Such levels of prognostication have not been used for many a moon. The dark side pulls me under.

I hadda feeling that tonight would be a good night if I just stopped vacillating, got on with it and lived without recriminations and calls of cowardice from the troops. So, accompanied by musicians, tartan trolley and weather balloon full of instruments I went for it. Week 7 over. Please don't tell me how long the wicked Bluey wants from me next week.

Well done Doss old bean. Well done. From what I remember it's about 3 mins more, that's all. As Andy Williams sang "almost there, we're almost there." Btw was I wrong to take out my bow & arrow & shoot down the weather balloon this morning? It was making such a racket.

'Snigger'. Nice one Captain Waletta. Corporal poppypug (ents div) has serious competition! I've never seen Andy Williams out of a rocking chair, or is that Val or Perry?

Hard going. Tartan trolley helped.cw shot down the weather balloon halfway through - didn't know what it was and it was making too noise. Managed though, rather proud.

Until I finish you will be a Second Lieutenant. Then you will be a complete one. You can play any instruments you like, even bagpipes.
