Morning Losers!

Its blowing a hurricane outside! I had to move all my little trees (I collect bonsai) into the shed last night. Found a stupid wasp taking shelter on the inside. Used some handlebars to smack the farker outside. My shed is for bikes beeatch!

Right, I'd better great ready to be blown to work.

Laters!

    Yeah, it's brutally windy here today as well. Bloody horrible.

    Another wonderful early start for me, compounded by the fact that I am in bits after building trail for three hours last night. Ouch. Worst thing is, it's not even rideable at present because the grounds still saturated with water, but hopefully it'll be worth it in the end. Looking forward to sorting the bike at the weekend - give it a bit of TLC and stick the shiny new bits on.

    Right, coffee beckons.

    Mornin' goat-fiddlers,

    Wind. Yes. Lots of it. It made the ride in hilarious and hilariously hard work (it took about 4mph off my average speed!). Jayzuz, that was hard work!!

    Still here now and expecting an easy day. To top it off, today is my Fryday, so there will be bacons, and She With Boobs will be appearing sometime later this evening for a weekend of bike based hilarity. And stuff.

    And I've got ride home in a hurricane too! The amusement; it just doesn't end.

    Onwards! To caffiene! Presentations! Bacons! And more caffiene!

    Very windy and wet here this morning too. I don't know why but it seems to have charged me up with static electricity as I was crackling away as I got changed in my office this morning. Some of those earthings were quite painful.

    More sorting of recruitment shizzle to deal with today then playing badminton after work. Have got a seafood pie to look forward to tonight and maybe, possibly, a beer to wash it down with.

    Not a cake or a bisuit to be found so it'll just be tea then as I filter the CVs again.
    Later......

    No worries Kev, I heard my phone go, but me and the vest were wrestling a tree at the time. You'll be surprised when you do get up there though, it's unrideably boggy and mucky at present, but once it settles a bit it should be a fun little run.

    Morning felchees,
    You know that magic ride in spring when it stops hurting, the fitness has come back enough and the trail is dry enough to really start enjoying a ride. That.
    pity those who don't drink, the way they feel when they wake is the best they will feel all day

    morning abusers, i'm loving the wind... its drying everywhere out, which means a potentially dry race this weekend at Codham, as opposed the censored of a mudbog we endured last year...
    A berm? were you expecting one?

    Easy, big guy.

    If giving a random weirdo a reach around is your idea of fun then fair play to you.

    I'll give it a miss for now. (with how stressful today is turning out to be, I may change my mind later.)

    Stupidly windy in Cardiff turned to bucketing it down with rain in Swansea. Got into work soaked. Not amused. My pile of post to deal with today consists of two piles of files which are combined about 5ft tall. Have spent two nights checking one file that was being dealt with by someone else, sometimes the incompetence of some people baffles me. Potential massive claims if that was let carry on as it was. Thank god said person has left. My brain now feels fried.

    New minion is good - she makes me tea without being asked to. I think I will keep her.

    Will be visiting the gym tonight for some stalking practice. I'll be in generic black gym kit just to make me easier to spot and will be on the treadmill so I can keep an eye on things...

    Lucky you! I'll be arriving about 7. Rather casual outfit today so I should be easy to spot. I don't dress like a grown up most days.
