    Morning homos

    Today is very busy. So far the plan is: drive to Rotherham to have a look and a sit on some el Guapos, drive back to Burtonland and take the mother to see the Hobbit as she's been complaining about not having seen it for ages, go visit the loony grandmother quickly then drive down to Potters Bar ready for the new term.

    This evening will be spent in the pub.

    First day of the weekend - ...last day of the week hopefully. Taken my lung disease up to Cambridge to do some work in compensation for spending the whole of the week inc last w/e and NYE in Delhi!! My lung disease does not seem to need radio therapy or Chemo - just some lemsips - but it is still V. SERIOUS!
    Try and get out on it later - no wind - no rain to speak of!
    Have a nice one!

    Lagrange - you have got the Mark Fowlers and need lucozade as it's 'aids' recovery

    Today is probably illness at our house as the kids are ill, the wife is ill and I feel a lot worse than 6 pints of cider should cause.

    So probably log burner lit, Christmas cake and treats and DVD's.

    I had planned a decent ride and then a walk with a pub lunch.

    Morning mongs!

    Terrierist walked, bacon consumed, off out on the bike in a bit then carry the Christmas tree down the road to be chipped by the local lions club. Have to help the kids with homework, one needs to write about an African country and the other write a story about Christmas. Also need to help Mrs S write her CV as we found a job for her last night that she should at least get an interview for.

    Dryathlon day 5, lost 4 pounds!
    Visit Clacton during the School holidays - it's like a never ending freak show.

    Face is feeling better, a lot less baloon shaped.

    Driving back to Cardiff today, get my new parts on the RL later then a ride on Sunday morning before work begins on Monday.
  • Morning losers!

    Today saw me have a lie in i needed. Feeling better for it.
    Yesterday was a rubbish day, got rejected by the girl i like, and everything went wrong at work which has put me behind quite a bit. Today had better be a better day, or I wont be a happy mule.

    Off with a friend to see The Hobbit tonight, have to pick her up from work thren swiftly drive to Bolton, could be interestimg.

    Laters!

    Ouch. How did I get in at 5am when I only went out for a couple of drinks with friends. I have blisters the size of small countries on my feet so we must have walked miles. Already had Bridezilla on the phone this morning asking me questions about organising dress shopping and the like. My rules are no pink/peach based colours, no frilly stuff and definitely no floral.

    Afternoon Gimps,

    Already knackered as I've been trailing round the zoo today with some hyperactive kids in tow. Coffee has just about kept me going. Will go for a run a bit later to burn a bit of lard then it's time to veg out a bit.

    It has been a long day. Woke up at the usual time and couldn't get back to sleep so I just got up and got on with things. Into town for a hair cut, browse around, to the Post Office to pick up a package of some bike bits then home to sort out some of the garden. The nice lady across the road even lent me her wheelie bin for all the hedge trimmings. Three weeks worth of laundry finished and ironed. Feeling knackered now so time for some beer.

    Can't wait to get back to work for a rest! :wink:

    Later......
