    Mud Gorning!

    Monday's suck...

    It's still dark outside! Had to ride in with the lights on. :( Looks like Autumn is finally here, so it'll be winter in a couple of weeks time.

    That said, the wooly cycling top I bought from Aldi yesterday was toasty warm this morning. Bit itchy mind, but nothing Mrs C + Washing machine + Tumble dryer cant destroy...

    Coffee will be a little late this morning as coffee-wallah minion is at the dentist. I already have bacon sandwiches and I also have a snake & pigmy pie that's probably not going to survive the next 10 minutes...

    Yawn yawn and some McYawn in there to shake it up.

    Tired. Don't want to work. Suppose I have to. How very mean.

    I want snake and pygmy pie. Pie pie pie. This country lacks pie!
  • Greetings,

    Today I am off to Brizzle to collect my [new?] Land Rover Discovery 300TDi which will be my new dedicated bike haulier.
    I've had a new back floor pan professionally fitted and it's just been MOT'd and taxed for a year. No luxury on this model, compared to the Disco SII V8 SE, but it was cheap and it's mechanically sound. I must add it has twin sunroofs, electric windows and alloys. I paid £200 for it. I've spent quite a bit on it with the rear floor plan and other repairs, but it's come in at under a grand. In the long term I'll convert it into my dedicated bike haulier AND off road vehicle.

    My last three days in the grim weather then off to warmer climates to celebrate my offspring's 21st. I'll be on the warmer side of the equator for just on 3 weeks.

    Didn't you know? Vegas is closing in 17278 hours!
  • What a stupid start today. I was planning on getting tipsy last night but that got cut short due to child minder problems.So I was up before 6, its a day off ffs. got to Boys mums at 7:30 and have just got back.

    I shall be turning towards the kettle for the next hour or so and then going to brave the hills. Changed the holey Ralf last night before the planned sesh, i have a balding Hi-Roller on until wed, should make the riding harder going over the sludge, think its going to be 1 wheel spin and 1 move forward.

    Kettles boiled, brew time and maybe a quick trip to the butchers for a mahoosive sausage sarnie.

    Good morning by the way.

    I had one of those weekends where I didn't seem to do much, but ended up more tired on Sunday evening than I was on Friday evening. Got more stuff planned and bought for my trip though I guess.

    9 days and 10 hours til I fly out!

    Heavy censored session? Sounds nasty.

    Today I have a day off work. I'm meant to be really busy, but I can't for the life of me remember what I was meant to be doing.

    Afternoon crudders, what a pile of tommy tank today has been so far. I woke up to the ups bloke knocking the door with my replacement printer. I took it straight into the front room to discover my CIS had leaked all it's yellow ink out onto my desk overnight and a, stained it and b, blistered the top of the desk. Was not happy at all. Cheered myself up with some gold bits for my bike but am still feeling meh

    could someone tell me the size of the chainring bolts on a shimano m summat or other triple chainset? I want them gold but can't be bothered to measure or look it up so I can order the right ones from pro bolt
    Mountain biking is like sex.......more fun when someone else is getting hurt
