Greetings Maggots,

Back to work today, meh!
Inbox was amazingly light though, so either I am unimportant or forgotten
Been an expensive festive season, but on the plus side, I was handed a mint condition Blackberry Torch free of charge, so that has to be a good Omen..

Wishing you all a day that passes swiftly and quietly..

    Skipton bound today. Might take the road bike later in the week and crack off a few Le Tour stylee hills if the injury will allow.

    Any road (and no, we don't really say that up here) time to crack on tha nos.

    Meh

    Kids still ill ensures they work hard to remove our sleep, so a day full of important meetings is going to be exceptionally hard.

    Back in work after a pleasant weekend, even if yesterday was mostly spent pretending to be domesticated.

    No idea what today will bring, but I'm guessing it will be getting bits of metal to do what bits of metal really don't want to be doing. On the plus side, it should make some great noises.

    No bacons today, but hey, life goes on. There's always tomorrow!

    Onwards! To coffee! And a quiet day!

    Monday certainly came around quickly again. Not enough beer was consumed over the weekend so I am feeling too awake for a Monday morning. This will probably change sometime after lunch when a heap of CBA will arrive.

    Tea to see me through.

    Later......

    Morning scuttlers

    This week im on one of those very rare for me weeks of 9-6 Monday to Friday........already I've seen the hate and contempt in the eyes of motorists and pedestrians as i rode in to work....seems cars drive at you and walkers walk out in front of you.....cyclist really are bottom of the food chain.

    Not much else to report at the mo.....apart from a big crudder event in the offing......details, albest vague ones at the mo will be shared tonight (clank knows what i'm talking bout)

    Back to work today. think I need a stewards inquiry into where the last week has went as it has seemed to have went by far to quickly. Ah well onwards to coffee and interwebs browsing for the rest of the day

    Morning numpties,

    First coffee consumed.. rest of the day is planned at doing my best to avoid work.. i might fail at this.

    i also need to see if i can repair my p7 torch tonight as it seems to be stuck on the lowest output setting which is no use to man nor beast :(

    Normal paper shuffling here, 20 working days to go... :D
    Bike ride on Saturday was good, although my fitness has dropped off massively due to only doing 4 rides from September to December. Did manage to only put my foot down once on a small techy climb section that normally I end up getting all wrong and stopping 4 times, so I might not be fit but my skills are getting better (ish).
    Spent yesterday cleaning the bike. Thanks to the inventor of the toothbrush, I can now see daylight through one jockey wheel and the other one is running pretty smoothly.
    The rest of the day was spent putting piles of books into the charity shop bag, and boxing up the rest of them along with my CD's. Packing is heinous.
    I think cake is on the horizon, as it's a colleagues birthday...not ideal as I need to lose half a stone. Oh well!

    Mehning Feckwits,
    Pretty quiet weekend really, this non drinking and no chocolate lark aint arf boring!
    Good ride yesterday, plenty of mud and and jumpy stuff. (i'm no gayer like you lot on road bikes)
    Waiting for bits for Beyonce still, then i have reached a point of "Done" on the bikes. So i started looking at what i can upgrade on Steffi, but not much, may get some wider bars?

    Anyway Dieting sucks and work is boring.

    Toodles.

    Working from home today after dropping the car off at the garage, so that they can have the pleasure of taking lots of money off me for a 60,000 mile service.

    Good ride on Saturday with Richie63 & DodgeT (+ my neighbour who never stops talking), but my legs are still aching :oops:

    Bike all washed & lubed yesterday along with new brake lines fitted and brakes bled.

    Night rides planned for Tuesday & Thursday so bring on the mud!!
  • Mehning Losers!

    Terrible morning so far. Came into work early to get stuff done, but my alarm went off 20 minutes later that it was meant to (and this is a digital one on my phone, I don't know how that happened!) so I'm not as early as I wanted. Just consumed a sausage and egg butty as I was getting very irritable and slow.
    All the macs keeps falling off the interwebs, making the online tests that are taking place, look a bit dodgy. IT are as helpful as ever.

    I get the feeling this year is going to see me turn into the grumpiest, miserable and moany 30 year old ever.

    Meh.

    So basically:

    1. I didn't come into work as early as I planned = win

    2. I had a sandwich with sausages in it = win

    Stop whinging.

    Not quite, I didn't get into work as early as I planned, but still got in 50mins earlier than I should have, so FAIL

    Got a sausage and egg sandwhich at gone 10am, having been up since 6:40, this was the first thing I'd eaten all day FAIL
