Up early to watch the GP, I think the tyres are lasting as long as I will - as feeling below par after a dinner party last night with too much sambuca which combined with the snow made dragging the wife home hard work.

Todays plan is Birmingham shopping for expensive handbags / shoes for the current wifes birthday - but as I assume she will be below par it might be off

  • Well this is all disappointingly familiar isn't it, kimi showing promise though. Looks like maclaren have given up all ready :(

    Morning bumders

    Up to listen to the F1 on the radio, although off out in a bit for a ride with the uni bike club and a couple of the lecturers... should be alright but not really used the road bike much this year so will be a bit of a shock at first I reckon (if I'm honest I've not really used any bike much this year thanks to the op on my back).

    The morning thus far (well the whole weekend actually) has been spent hacking the android, and in the process i've managed to install an old kernel :s so trying to find the latest.

    The afternoon will be spent trying to sort the gears out before giving up and letting the shop do it

    Morning Arsebandits,

    Finally got myself down to the minor injuries clinic in town and surprise surprise there was hardly anyone there - proving my theory that most people are feckin skivers who go to the doctors in work time if they can :) I didn't need my stash of bike mags that I'd brought to read as I was only there 15 minutes, must be a record for the NHS. The stern looking Eastern European nurse didn't take long to work out nothing was broken so no X-rays etc and I'll back on 2 wheels this week with the help of a few paracetamols - yay.

    Might even think about getting back over to Wales next month to risk a broken bone or two downhilling once this shyte weather goes away.

    Now downing coffee and getting some peace while the trouble 'n' strife and junior are out shopping for something or other with my money. A price worth paying I reckon.

    Afternoon Losers!

    More musical musings have been happening today, so my arms are knackered after waving them about like a pigeon in distress.
    This evening is pretty much the same, but this afternoon I'm off to Wilkinsons to buy a bin and a washing bowl. I know, I know, my life is so exciting that you guys are contemplating just finishing your lives now. You may as well to be honest.

    It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.
