Morning beeatches!

Got woken today about 10mins before my alarm went off (Why-I-Oughta!) as a steam roller rolled past. Fecking idiots.
No real plans today. Yesterday had a eureka moment, which meant I wasn't that busy after midday. I'm hoping to be not too busy today too, I'm going through a real stage of cba at work, I think a new career is on the horizon.

Anywho's,

Laters!

    Morning bumders

    Back down to Camdens tomorrow, got to sort a few things out today, try and get some placements organised for the summer and probably do some revision. Had a great ride in the peaks yesterday, 23 miles in the end, however this means the bike should probably get cleaned too, contemplating leaving it until I get back from uni, it's only 8 weeks...

    Mornin' dangleberry pickers,

    Great start to the day as I shoulder-planted the floor on the ride into work trying to avoid some unaware pedestrian. Landed on the shoulder I shattered last year. More annoyingly, the off-side front paw throbs like a m**********r. This isn't overly an issue as I'm on a course today, but I'm struggling to grip my mug and it's, like, coffee time. Gonna have to fly this one left-handed! :lol:

    In other news - out tonight to continue watching s1 of Game of Thrones - which I am enjoying somewhat. And I made tonights dinner last night, so that's something else to look forward to when I get let out.

    Anyhoo, as said, it's that time o'day, so....

    Onwards! To caffiene! ....a little more slowly than usual......

    Morning all,

    I've just finished my first job of the day so I think it's bacon time now :-) I'm a bit tired though cos for the last 2 nights my son has thought that getting up at 2am and playing for an hour is a great idea!!!! So I'm currently drinking a can of monster to give me a kick start.

    I was supposed to be doing an evening of DH tonight but my full susser is fecked so that's out the window...

    Ah well, last day in work tomorrow for 2 weeks :-)

    Morning all

    Definately with you guys on the cba front, I've already found myself on mental wind down for my 8 weeks off.


    Today I am going to get some work done, although I have forgotten to bring in head phones, grr, what a minute, boom back up set of headphones in the draw! Sweet

    Morning Mongs,

    Likewise, really can't be ar$ed doing much today. I want warmth and sunshine - may have to start looking at holidays? Got to do some more stuff on schools for my kids secondary school application, then a night in front of the box beckons watching Chelsea v Barcelona. Would try to get out on the bike but it just looks to censored to bother right now...

    morning bumgays

    Today is meh. Mental minion is back and sat at his desk like a potato counter. HR have said that as he's 'ill' there's fark all I can do about it.

    Need to book in for a 4 day course either in York, Swindon or Derby. Might go for York and get a few rides in at Dalby.

    Other than that too much work.

    If you're going to York, go to Stainburn (near Ilkley way), it's much more fun!

    Super organised last night and got pretty much an entire week's worth of chores sorted in one night. Got up this morning and set the slow cooker running with a nice bolognese for post gym eatings. No idea where I'm getting all this energy from...

    I was going to buy a new saddle for the Stumpinator today, but bought 2 tickets to see Faith No More in July at Hammersmith Apollo instead. I'm ok with this.

    Morning gimps. Still slobbing in bed waiting for the missus finish int bathroom. Im assuming there is some pork product in the fridge. No bike today,off to speak to bank for a mortgage been quoted a massive £54,000 online so see what the banks offering.
    Looking at some nice two bed apartments in a quiet area but there £76,000 or 450 a month to rent.

    Back home and watch Chelsea and listen to Bolton get beat by Villa.

    Plenty of work to do today, but in the back of my mind is the 5 hour riding pass I've obtained for Saturday afternoon.

    Went out yesterday in the howling gale, rain, sleet and hail....wasn't much fun. In fact, if it wasn't for the fact that most day's I've got nothing better to do I think it would have put me off riding for life. Maybe i'll take up walking instead, that seems popular these days.

    Great. A lesser minion that is meant to be working the closing shift (7-10pm) can't work today, so I have to cover it :evil: I'm going to spend that shift looking at other jobs.
