Morning Losers!

I made a curry last night after watching Rick Stein's India and it was pretty damn good if I do say so myself. I should make curry from scratch more often! Today I am full of wind though, and this is being released to the world, so sorry those around me :twisted:

Didn't get to the doctors yesterday as they closed at 5, so I'll try again today. That's pretty much my plans really.

Laters!

    Mornin' window lickers,

    Work yesterday pepped me up, no end - which was nice. Had a call from the local CID, too - asking a few more questions about the bikes I had half-inched. Something on their system had flagged up a potential lead on BR, but it turned out to be my own 'stolen' thread! At least they've got some mechanism or another going on.

    Today will feature more laser-based asshattery, and a four hour meeting - on the plus side the meeting features lunch. Tonight, Bails87 is dropping around to help me sort the hardtail out, so I can at least go biking in the Peaks on Saturday. This will likely also feature curry, but hoprefully without the current TKM issue....

    Onwards! To caffiene! And death rays!
    How would I write my own epitaph? With a crayon - I'm not allowed anything I can sharpen to a sustainable point.

    Morning bumders

    Freedom this morning. Forks are due to be delivered today, hopefully before lunch as I'm due in uni this afternoon.

    Did the classic 'fall back asleep as soon as you cancel the alarm' thing this morning and a consequence had five minute to get myself together and get to the office. This means a serious caffeine deficiency. My mood overall is much improved though as I managed to get out on the bike last night and it all seems to be more or less holding together. A few tweaks required tonight, but it seems otherwise ok. Hopefully I can get the suspension serviced before the mondraker gravity rally next weekend, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Also need to sort out the van, which is rather more costly and time consuming.

    Had a good time last night playing tennis. Unsurprisingly the courts were busy with the usual two week Wimbledon enthusiasm. Slept well too so that is a bonus.

    Still waiting for my new boy’s toy to arrive. The company sent an email saying it would be dispatched by next day courier on the 24th but as yet no sign of it. I think I might have to start chasing things up.

    Today will be spent trying to look busy whilst not achieving very much – a technique I’m slowly perfecting.

    Another cake free day. I have to say I didn’t really miss it yesterday so it looks like I’m breaking the addiction.

    Later……

    As I got H'd last night - I cycled in today. First six miles went really well and then I had a wasp vs mouth incident and the wasp won. In a lot of pain and frankly look (more) stupid.

    Today is meeting on insurance - fantastic and then a long ride home in what is forecast to be rather wet

    Morning,

    Pain of my separated ribs have left me getting the bus to work as I can't ride my bike nor turn the steering wheel in my car. Paracetamol and codeine also mean a distinct lack of getting H'd for a few days. Pills aren't doing enough so will be hunting for something stronger/more addictive later on today.

    Morning deviants...

    Just come back from a couple of days in London, we met up with some swedish friends who were over on holiday, whilst we were there we went to see 'The Book of Mormon'... it was awesome, highly recommended.

    Today is pondering on spunking a load of dosh on a new frame.

    Same. When you hit the snooze, your're so confident that you will be able to get up in a minute or two - even though you know full well that you won't.

    Saw the Hangover 3 last night, pretty good. Chow is the best charcter hands down haha.

    That is all, laters

    I've ordered some stuff for a team. I've done some faffing. I've arranged a bike collection from Scott as our bike got sent there by someone who obviously needs to pay a bit more attention to detail.
    This afternoon I will be eating peanut butter on rice cakes, and when work finishes we'll be off up the woods for a Bo' spin.
    This evening I should really pack as I'm off to Hood Town straight after work tomorrow, not sure how I'm going to cope in the Peaks on Saturday as my legs are on the tired side.

    Kisses

    Work is going ok. Holidaying minion has returned!!!! Yeah!!!! This means I can reduce the number of clients I speak to. I don't particularly like clients who believe people like estate agents, over and above someone legally trained...

    Sounds like haymaking at the farm will be taking place next week which could mean some time off driving large tractors round fields (this I have to keep quiet from the boss as last time I broke my foot jumping off a tractor and couldn't come to work).

    Chosen my bridesmaid dress fabric and pattern. Now just have to get it made.

    BNO after work tomorrow night. Food and then drinks. I imagine our office will look like something out of that Call Centre programme tomorrow afternoon with lots of work avoidance.

    Don't worry, I'm so out of shape at the moment that you won't be alone on the climbs. Plus, it means I can stalk you without breaking sweat ;) :twisted:

    Sort of, although it's hot dusty long days driving back and forth across fields, and when you forget to lift up the hydraulics before turning or accidentally reverse with the machinery on the back running and down because you have zoned out so much, it kind of turns the air a bit blue.

    I nearly rammed a rowing up spike through a tractor tyre last year doing just that. And then my uncle stabbed himself in the leg with a penknife while we were trying to untangle baler twine from the baler. Also managed to sink a tractor up to its rear axle in mud stacking bales last year (driving in the dark), so much so we went out and bought a new massive tractor the next day.

    Afternoon Scuttlers

    Good ride in this morning knocking just over 2 and a half mins off my personal best and an unexpected jump on the scales yesterday revealed I'd lost 9lbs since moving house. Add this to the lingering sniffle I have I think I may finally have the full bad aids
