Morning

Today is down to Coventry for an MBA day school. It won't be the most fun in the world.

Later will be pub, that about it.

    Went to bed early last night coz I was exhausted so now I'm awake silly early for a Saturday.
    Good job though as I need to sort my brakes, put dinner in the slow cooker and get ready for Cannock.
    Slightly apprehensive as my mate is way fitter than me, and I haven't done the Monkey since summer 2010 - it's going to be the longest MTB ride I've done since the rupture. Hopefully all that time I've clocked at the gym will pay off.

  • Morning all-

    Have a fun trip FoxC!

    Nursing a hangover today after going to the cinema last night to watch ghost rider 3d, and drinking alot before and after. Only thing on the cards for today is food shopping since yesterday was payday, chillen, and nothing else.

    Enjoy

    FoxC Good luck with the ride! Take it steady and I'm sure you'll do good. Keep an eye out for a battered blue Landrover, or an inept rider on a black hardtail.

    Mornin' goat-fiddlers,

    Up about and packing the car ready for the trawl to Cannock. Had hoped to by on the way by now but, well, you know how it goes. Tea is being drunk, porridge has been eaten. Now need chocolate. Chocolate makes the world a better place.

    Once home I shall clean the steed, sort out the paintballing kit for tomorrow's game and go out with friends for a meal.

    Onwards!

    Morning all,been a while.

    Today I will be mostly getting skunked, an anniversary that requires getting squiffy in the worst possible way.

    Hell, someone has to do it, I'll even be pouring beer over someone.

    Enjoy the weekend peeps.

    Love n hugs

    Morning Tunnel Testers,

    Today will be a bit tedious having to ferry junior about to her various lessons and activities, so I'll try to slip in a coffee or 2 while I'm out and maybe buy a bike mag to read if there's any new ones out yet (last months looked cack). Lazy evening watching footy later on I reckon and maybe a bit of ski trip planning :-)

  • I''m in fecking work and it's afecking beautiful day outside. Then I'm rushing to a rehearsal for a conecert I'm in tonight (for Help the Heroes).

    Plus, the fecking drill I'm using has now got a fecking flat battery, so it looks like I'm doing it by fecking hand.

    Afternoon bumders

    Been in uni for a few hours writing up my stats report, only just realised I've been writing about ringworm infections in dogs and all the data in the study is about cats. Massive fail. Probably should have double checked it before I started :lol:

    Couple more hours of this then watching England beat Wales hopefully, if not I'll be watching England get thrased by Wales, either way it won't be stats so I'll be happy.

    Well, Cannock was in good condition and rolling fast (even on Minions). The general mood from everyone (and there were quite a few out) seemed really good too and it made for a lovely ride.

    Even got complimented on the bike! (there's some wierd b****rs out there, I tell ya)

    My epic prowess was however slightly undone by a making a pigs ear of Monkey's second rock garden and further by making cows censored of Werewolf Drops (like a complete noob I clipped one of the bloody trees on the entry!). Looking it back, it were quite funny.

    Now sat, with a pint of tea, watching the Italians getting royally turned over by the Irish.

    Pretty good day. 8)

    Morning spunkers!

    I've been shopping for the wife's birthday this morning and so far she has picked a watch and a painting out but not bought them yet but a new mobile and ring have been purchased.

    I'm now chilling with a beer and the rugby, strong possibility of a kip afterwards.

    Believe me, don't give her the ring. Things will get expensive once she has one on her finger!
  • Tell you what, that was a superb day of Rugby, particularly the England v Wales Match. Very well earned win indeed there.

    afternoon scutters
    I survived... just!
    Was all going pretty well, did a couple of bits that I usually wuss out on, almost had a major crash after clipping a tree, but managed to save it, not sure how.
    Did have a big crash on the last downhilly section before crossing back over the railway line. Pedalling fast on the straightish bit, clipped something with my right pedal, and shot out the left side... thought I'd broke my helmet, hit my head on the floor that hard. All ok though!
    shattered now, but am off to the new BrewDog bar tonight... :)

    Be good!

    This is what would happen if I saw you all muddy on the last downhill bit before the railway ;)

    Fortunately for you, I no longer work on that line

    Only the terrierist, on a 12 mm cut. Ever tried clearing fox s**t from the coat of a border terrier?

    Today turned into fail. Kids fighting, screaming and shouting, youngest refusing to sleep. Wife mega stressed and already in bed.

    Sold the two Aurora kits, wtf a plastic JFK is now worth £900?
