Morning folks

    Morning Crabsticks!

    Seems a lot cloudier today, which is a shame. Suppose the sun couldn't last forever, it's Blighty remember, it'll be snowing this weekend :lol:
    Not much planned for today. Work has gone very quiet, which is good, but makes me very aware that I'm not doing anything, which is bad. Hmmm Still looking for another job though.

    Anywho, more tea.

    Morning bumders

    I for one am glad the weather is calming it a little, inisde my flat down in London hasn't been lower than 27 deg. for a week now, on Sunday afternoons my room managed to reach a whopping 29.5...

    Today will mostly be uni revision meh, just off in there now. I imagine I'll get bored at some point and end up on here for half the day :roll:

    Much cooler last night so managed to get some good sleep. A bit overcast this morning so quite nice on the ride in this morning.

    Usual work stuff to contend with and no plans for tonight so I may just get a quick hour or two on the bike.

    Morning mongs

    What is it with you lot and not sleeping? No problems here even though it's still hot and sunny.

    Today will be workmeh, but I've got to take a trip out to Aldeburgh in a bit so may just have to walk along the sea front. Will also be deciding on whether to buy another planet-x superlight team frame as I found the head tube has cracked on mine, probably when I put the big dent in the top tube. Either that or a pro carbon on cyclescheme, but since they don't do blue the other half may notice.

    Haven't you heard 29ers are so last year? You need to get a 650B if you want to keep up with the pro's.

    I know the Crud is full of perverts but this is a bit much really :P

    Morning censored Hunters and Huntees,

    No such problems sleeping so I'm feeling very awake after a big coffee. Off up into town for a free lunch with someone who could get me some good job-related connections so it's a good day so far :) After that I'll be doing more sitting in the garden to recover from such a hard day.

    What is it with you lot and not sleeping?

    I'll join the long list... We had some gobby little cu nts outside last night arguing with their mum on the phone. It went on for about 20mins before I had to go and tell her to STFU and go elsewhere. Then the neighbour had their radio playing on volume 1million this morning......phff. shite night!

    I feel a house move coming on!

    M'ning, [rant over]

    A day of menial tasks in the office today. I've got to work a stand at the bath and west show on Thursday so no doubt I’ll be preparing for that too! :roll:

    Morning muffmunchers!

    Today is the uni MTB clubs end of year ride-out to nant y arian, should be epic fun, and frankly I'm glad the weathers a bit cooler today, those climbs are right bastards but the trails should be dry so its pretty much perfect over there today :mrgreen: First ride over here on the HD in months, it feels somewhat wasted back home :lol:

    Off to the pub on the way back should be a cracking day, unlucky those who have work/school etc etc :P

    anywayyyss, laters bumders!

    Mornin'.
    Lovely day here, weather is just right. Had a nice spin into work, apart from nearly having a head-on with a car.
    Today shall be spent fixinf things, and trying to find components to fix other things.
  • GazlarGazlar Posts: 8,110
    Morning here, unfortunately the weather is lovely here too, unfortunate as I have over 10 hours of work today in this, I spose it means I get ten hours of letching too at passengers, but still, I'd rather letch on my own watch.

    Following this up will be some gym miles and some lifting and pushing of heavy things.

    Just a local loop at cwm here, should join up with the bike club thingy i guess at some point.

  • YeehaaMcgeeYeehaaMcgee Posts: 5,740
    Best thing about selling your wife, is you can keep selling her over and over again, several times a night.
  • VWsurfbumVWsurfbum Posts: 7,959
    One of my mates phoned earlier, he's got me a ticket for the MTB lycraboys race at the Olympics. Controversial i know but hey its not far from me. and i know blah blah, its flat, blah blah, not technical blah blah. I dont care, i'm going!
