    1) It's Friday.
    2) I'll soon be heading off to drink beer whilst overlooking a gorgeous beach. Here (Ty Newydd, Aberdaron, North Wales):

    Just so you know, "Ty Newydd" literally means "New House".
    (House New actually but that's grammar for you!)

    Diolch am hynny ond Cymro Cymraeg ydw I hefyd - dwi'n siarad yr iaith yn iawn. :)

    Translation for non-Welsh speakers: "Thanks but I'm a Welsh speaking Welshman too - I speak the language just fine/well."

    2. I've got a week off.
    3. I just had a Martini, handed to me by my loving wife straight from the freezer as soon as I walked through the door.

    Monday is my Friday...
    2. I've got a week off.
    Krikey... seven years since I've had one of those? Though they were only 4 day weeks till last December...
    3. I just had a Martini, handed to me by my loving wife straight from the freezer as soon as I walked through the door.
    Does she do mail order?

    On a more serious note (I know right? - ed) The architecture work I've been doing the last eight months brought me to the attention of a large local building contractor. So when an up-coming local architect queried him about any bright young sparks in the area my name was dropped.

    Nothing more solid than that at the moment - but as my time is coming to an end (in the practice he's in now... so dramatic! -ed) it would be pretty cool.

    My last week off was cancelled on the Tuesday... the life of an NHS professional is always intense.

    You're an architect? I may propose an exchange... :)

    You just scored some extra Man Points. :thumb:

    Thank you, sir. First time I also tried to make the buns, the shop-bought ones are rubbish. Baking is as manly as it gets when it's all about making better burgers.

    "Ty'r" is an abbreviation of "Ty yr" which means "house of".
    "Pwllau", I think is a mis-spelling of "pyllau" which means "pools / ponds" (singular "pwll" - as in Pwllheli, Llanfairpwll etc).

    So, that would make it "house of the pools". :thumb:

    Are there a couple of pools/small lakes nearby?

    My wife's a retired chef too! And our thought was: barbecue =! cremation.

    Still, seeing burgers hovering in the jet stream is kind of awesome. :D

    Had my demo flight this morning for the use of an RPAS (drone/UAV/whatever you want to call them). It well really well, so it looks like I've secured my commercial licence for using it :)
