Greetings Maggots,

Neighbour just knocked on the door to help me load an 80Kg box in the car that contains my servers, Macs and other electricity consuming devices, this is to be shipped to my new home.
My last day in Stoke today, then I'll be in Brizzle this week before flying off to France thus Saturday (with my cat!)
However the poor cat will be imprisoned in a cattery for a week down Brizzle way..

So a manic week of finalising affairs before my departure..

It seems as if Kaiser is MIA, so let's hope all is okay on that front

Wishing you all a good start to the week..

    Morning losers!

    I took my friend home to Nottingham last night, I ended up going to bed at 1! This was not a good move when I've not really had much sleep over the last week. I feel I may fall asleep whilst stood up :lol:

    Today, I have no idea what's in store for me. Hopefully sod all, so I can get some shuteye.

    Laters!

    Morning crudites.
    Was in a OK mood till i got to work, first off seeing Alex is missing (very bothered by this) and also got a shed load of censored to deal with.
    Friday i went to the solicitors with my brother to see if my dad had any last wishes for funeral etc, it turned into a will reading etc, since then it has been a very confusing time.
    Saturday was spent sorting funeral arrangements and sunday was spent fighting the mud both on and off the bike!

    This week holds many challenges and no minion as he is covering redundant staff!

    Onwards to coffee

    You and me both. Kinda takes the edge off the day.

    Mornin' all

    Busyish, but hopefully fun day ahead (if things in work come together). Home tonight either sees me sorting some stuff on the car, or going shopping - depending on the weather. Next batch of good weather should see me repair the garage door, so I can get the car undercover and work in the dry ('cuz lying on your back on wet concrete trying to strip a transfer box just isn't fun anymore).

    Before all of that, the usual calls.

    Onwards! To coffee and web stuff, for an hour or so.

    censored , there isn't enough regular posters - so we can't loose one.

    Today is year end at work - so early start and late finish with grief in the middle

    Mornin' All,

    Fingers crossed for Kaiser.

    The sun is shining at last so I'm headed out on the roadie after I've knocked up a plate of scrambled eggs (trails near here are still miserably muddy, just not worth it). Then it's time to hassle people who haven't done things they were meant to do.

    Join you all in hoping Kaise turns up soon...
    Add to that the Peregrine Falcon family here have taken a bit of a beating yesterday too... bit of a bum start to the day...
    Sun is out though so it's not all bad I suppose, plus despite the weather I had a cracking weekend.
    Usual Monday routine for me today. Onwards! to weetabix with crunchy granola topping.
    Kisses

    Weather here has been shite all weekend, chucking it down and blowing a gale, and just reading that a fellow rider is missing has just continued the somber mood.

    Here's to hoping the day only gets better for all concerned.

    Man I dunno how to feel now. If my emotions weren't all over the place, they are now.

    I'm glad I don't have much to do today at work as I just seem to keep going between here, facebook and twitter to read what people have said about Kaise.
    Very unproductive day.

    Well after the awful news today, took the afternoon off persuaded the house mate into a ride and got wet and muddy and appreciated every last second of it, including getting mud in the eye.
