Morning mongs,

The girlfriend objected to me referring to someone as a mong last night, but was ok with 'mongoloidbarstard.'

My last normal day at work before 5 splits in a row, bloody Easter holidays. Just to make it better, I have my boss down for the day after our car crash of a meeting with the big boss yesterday.

Onwards, to job uncertainty and disappointment!

    Worked til 11:30pm last night back in at 7:30am. Just have to get through today and 12 hours tomorrow then i'm free until the 8th April. Booked the week off to chill and get some things done on the car and get a few little rides in.

    The sad excuse for coffee in my office has been consumed but not enjoyed. I may need to rectify this by a trip to a coffee establishment and also grab myself some bacon products

    This. So very much this.

    Would it kill them to get good coffee in?

    No. But it might kill them if they don't...........

    Mornin' window lickers,

    Work stuff, then out with freinds. Livin' the dream, me. Livin' THE m***********g dream. :lol:

    I've been unwell since the weekend and off the bike, and I'm kinda missing it. However, I think I'll ride in tomorrow regardless of the weather, then I'm due to be hitting Cannock on Friday. Niiiiiice. 8)

    Onwards! To good coffee! And report writing! (yeah, that dream thing I was talking about? Told you I was livin' it!)

    Morning

    Current wifes birthday, day off but upstairs doing some work - so wont be in the good books.

    Hopefully taking her out for an expensive lunch will resolve that! Later I have promised to cook dinner a very rare event.

    In work early as out on a course this afternoon about compliance stuff, then back to the office to do the work I haven't finished this morning for the day. On the plus side skiving out on a course means chocolate biscuits. And on the drive in found a cd I have been looking for for ages in the car.

    Bad foot is aching a bit after running last night. And just discovered that I have to be in a wedding dress shop at 9am in Blackheath on Saturday giving my sister honest (but not too honest) advice about what kind of dress in my usual 'I can't really be bothered about your wedding and peoples impending nuptials manner'. So much for a lie in!

    Still snowing, I just hope the stuff hasn't ruined the trails as I'm hoping for a night ride later.

    Had a hair cut last night, might need a beanie under my helmet!

    morning all,

    i discovered on the way in that the new car has an ipod docking station buily in, who knew? :lol: so i've been going through my music a - z only on b at the minute, but a bit of beastie boys and biffy clyro on the way in can't be bad 8) it's amazing what random censored gets put onto an ipod though!

    i've done my work for the day in the last 3 hours. which should be good, but it means i have to go through my spread sheet of assets and correct any mistakes, new items, missing numbers etc etc etc. this is going to be very long and tedious.

    anyway, i'm off out for a ride later so that's a win :D

    Morning Losers!

    Once again, it's snowing in da Hudd. This is not how I planned my week off, I wanted to be out on the bike, checking out the new area. Instead, I watch cars struggling to get onto the main road.
    Today, I'll attack the small hangover I've got, and hopefully go for a walk. Both kinds.

    Laters!

    Afternoon Maggots,

    The other half returned to France yesterday after a two week escapade here on the Dark Continent
    She throughly enjoyed her short visit, but was taken back that every traffic light is frequented by beggars and roadside hawkers willing to pan off their wares of knock off sunglasses and DVDs.

    Just another week here at the salt mine and thank fark it's a four day week, result.
    It's still warm here, so while Europe freezes, we are still getting sun with daily rainfall which is a little unusual for this time of they year.
    I will get out on the HT this weekend while the weather makes it viable, as winters are colder here than in Europe and worse as it's very dry indeed.

    If this snow carries on I'll be sat infront of the fire with a glass of wine tonight, never mind this bike riding rubbish.

    evening children,

    creating awsomeness on the computer has been my day today! Whether anyone else will see it that way is up for debate!
    My immediate grown up delighted the office by announcing his presence tomorrow which has scuppered everyones plans to do an AM bunk off! Twunt! Still, longish weekend on the cards, loafing and stuffs!

    Night all!

    Had free doughnuts. They were promising and didn't deliver on taste.

    Back in the office doing the work I should have been doing all afternoon instead of listening to a boring person talk about compliance stuff.

    Evening all
    Been a bit busy the last few weeks, work is a bit mental, and life has been trucking along rather well.. mostly.
    Was supposed to be going to Scotland for the long weekend but that's been canned due to the weather/impending travel chaos. Not much point in going all that way just to get stuck somewhere/not be able to ride. Currently trying to find somewhere to ride on a day-trip basis. Thinking FOD or similar probably - Cannock and Llandegla are closed so far.
    Frustrating as I've got a loaner bike for the weekend.. EX 9.7 just to make me look even more like I have no idea what I'm doing..
    Did I miss much?
    Kisses

    As far as I am aware FOD has snow, or did earlier in the week. Will check with the parentals tomorrow if it is still there and how much as they live pretty much in the woods by the tracks.

    Another mental day in the office. Just managed to commit my company to spending over £200k on advisors fees and get the minions to do most of the legwork on our side. The power.... :P Still, one more day 'till a frozen Easter break when I will be sleeping and loafing around like it's going out of fashion.

    Time to hit the sack as I'm up early to pedal into work tomorrow...
