Good morning everyone!

I would say I am excited to be up at this time, or I slept well at least, but both would be a lie. Blemmin want togo back to bed, but a 7am meeting with a client means no sleepy time for Sean. It will be a day of meetings, followed by lots of cleaning as we have family coming to visit. Only broght side is tomorrow someone will be coming to view of our flat to buy, so hopefully we will be out from under these payments soon.

Anyways, at least bacon will be supplied this morning in copious amounts!

    Tired too due to my inability to sleep in hotel beds, despite swimming and drinking like a fish

    Today is meetings and hopefully in the car early enough to fly through birmingham - bit I doubt it
  • Morning Losers!

    In work at the normal time today, and bonus, get to leave midday as I've been coming in early :D So, off for a ride this afternoon, then over to Bury where I'm doing some filming and recording, then a night out in Manchester.

    For a half day off, this feels like it's going to be a busy day...

    Laters!

    Cool car , I've still got to use the roads.

    Friday has arrived and so has my new bike, all bright and shiny. Spent a fair bit of time building and fettling away last night and as a result I am tired this morning. Less than four hours to go so I'll manage to fill my time somehow.

    Tea and web browsing ahead.

    Later......

    I am somewhat sleep deprived after a fun evening at that there Tamworth Snowdome*, boarding mojo is back, as are my indie grabs**. Also, the company I was keeping wasn't too shabby either. Only problem being that I was so excited when I got home that I was still wide awake at 1.30am. Caffeine will be required today, for the first time in a looong time.
    Today is mostly paperwork shuffling and making up for spending most of yesterday looking for a holiday to go on. Think I've got it sorted a bit now - it's either La Plagne or Borovets..
    Onwards! To administration! Hurrah!

  • Morning all

    Work meh until 2 then off to the pool to put some laps in, going to give my fitness a real go this year instead of quitting to soon.

    Even thinking of getting a road bike too mix it up a bit, no bacons today sticking to my guns, the push ups app on my phone is telling me I am over 40 and nowhere near any sort of physical fitness.

    Morning Mongs!

    Today is woo!

    I'm the only person in the office so I'm currently ploughing through all the admin stuff I have to do before trying to do as little as possible this afternoon. Very annoyed though as the bargain Ti 29er frames from on one sold out in about 2 seconds.

    Last night was very productive. Stripped down the Barry White frame for a full service & wash down. It's amazing how much muck accumulates even if you think the bike's relatively clean. Finally finished the Jaguar as well, need some better quality brushes as the fine ones I have are s**t. Next up is a F9-f2 which is going to be a bit of a task, the ejector seat on its own is made up of 20 PE parts.

    Morning all! Tired today, this is day 3 of waking up feeling like a zombie. Not loving it, got to babysit a friends 8 year old kid tonight oh joy! I may go for a climb before that and squeeze in a lil bit of work. Don't have a hear attack but....Actually going out on the bike tomorrow if my body is still working!

    bg13 you would have more fun on a board, especially if there is POW!!!! Freshies on planks not nearly so satisfying! I am bi-sportual so fully qualified to have that opinion!

    FoxC You prefer ice boarding at Tam to proper snow?!....although when I refreshed my license at MK it was fluff with ice patches and the pillars are pretty annoying I will give you that!
    Ride it like you stole it!

    mornin' all

    First and last day of the week in the office as have been at a PTS course, Gazlar you may know what i'm talking about - a very challenging and tasking three days :wink: . Doesn't feel like a friday, which is good as tomorrow it won't feel like the weekend, but it will be :twisted: Anyway just ordered a sausage and egg french stick so all is well :mrgreen:
    :D:lol::)cooldad :shock: :? :cry:

    Well.. I prefer Tam to MK, but not to real snow, obviously! I think this is to do with the fact I like the 2 flat spots to huck big ollies/do indie grabs.

    Bored. In charge. Tired. Not a good mix. One sister got her first uni rejection letter this morning so having to cheer her up. Booking CPD courses so I can have some days out of the office. Can't wait for 5.30!

    Afternoon mongs,
    Been a productive week:
    - broke my RC car in the rain
    - ordered new parts and painted up the body while waiting for parts
    - replaced motor and realised nothing was broke
    - broke steering servo on first run with new motor
    - replaced steering servo
    Now it's all fixed and ready to go but I think I should get my bike out instead.

    The day's been short. I must say that's the weirdest funeral I've been to, a eulogy was read and the service ended with gangnam style playing.

    It's bloody freezing out, I've opted to stay in and save my pennies
