Morning all!
I get to go to work for only an hour and a half today, until I leave and go to a exhibition. All about sound and light equipment. Might go to a seminar, get the free lunch, then straight to the pub :D

Recently I've been getting into Bonsai trees again, so I'm hoping to buy a couple today, which should be fun.

Anywho, tea and frosties!

Laters!

    Morning peeps,
    Need a good night sleep and a night off from thinking. Not going to go to the hospital tonight, so hopefully i'll see my kids and maybe fix my bike thats been broken for over a week now.
    Not much in the diary today, so maybe some rest, and maybe a trip to the hospital?

    On the upside of retaining my job, at some point my hours will reduce by 15hrs a week! and the money will stay the same! so may be able to get some more riding time in!

    Anywhoo onwards to coffees and a generic breakfast

    Some good news there VWS, hopefully the next bit will be about your old man.

    Morning Dingleberries,

    Got to go shopping for a new kitchen tap as the old one is farked and is dripping like an excited Essex girl. Hoping for a break in the weather so I can get a ride in - it's been 5 days since I was last on a bike and i'm going a bit cold turkey :x . Then it's a night on front of the box watching Chelsea v Barcelona.

    Morning bumders

    VW good to hear somethings going your way at the moment. So today I was supposed to be going riding with a mate, but he's being useless and not replying (this is probably because it's raining), as I'm lacking a car to drive anywhere (I was hoping we'd hit the peaks) I may take the road bike out for a spin later, or just go hit some local XC stuff. Aside from that the majority of the day will probably be revisions now and save the riding time for later in the week.

    Congrats on the job news VWs.. fingers crossed for good news about your Dad soon

    'ning
    Couldn't be farked to go to the gym last night, regretting it now, feel fat and lazy.
    Overslept this morn, and nearly forgot about my phsyio appointment. All good on that score though, more exercises to do to sort out some niggles.
    Nothing interesting doing today. But have been told I'll need my full face helmet at the weekend... this could go horribly wrong...haha

    Work is pretty Meh! at the moment. My boss is on long term leave for 'work related stress' my other boss has just gone on leave for 3-4 weeks as he's having an op, leaving me and the Admin girl to run the office so no time off for me for the next month. The misses is applying for a few jobs this week which may mean a move out of Wales and the hunt for a new job. Two of the jobs are in Bristol and one is in Bourneville.
    Anyhoo back to answering phones and trying to figure out what i have to do now i'm managementless...

    afternoon mongtards!

    Today is going well so far. Somebody's on an email rampage before going on leave so that's causing some issues, however nothing that can't be ignored.

    Pay day tomorrow, not sure what to spend some monies on, the Inbred's been on the go for 2 years now and it's time for a change. Whippet's are only £249 now but I'd need new parts to fit. But then again I'd probably be able to sell the Inbred frame on ebay for a bit.

    Anyway time for a sandwich containing sausage, bacon and egg.
    Visit Clacton during the School holidays - it's like a never ending freak show.

    Who are you calling inbred?

    Whippet's are only £249 now

    Now that's got me tempted.

    Just been out riding my bike. Got very wet, very muddy, quite fun, just wish there was more of it, very limited in what's around me for a quick blast.

    Nothing weird about that at all although...shoot, sorry, I got the wrong crudder's address

    Evening scuttlers

    been busy showing my manager how good a train driver I am this week by being generally slow, late and alittle confused as to where I am, this tactic however has seemed to impress him into thinking that I am actually just careful.

    This does however mean that I may have to start working for a living next week
