Morning Losers!

I seem to be behind time today, but I don't know why. A shoot nights sleep means I'm doing everything slightly slower is my guess.

Normal day of work today, followed by something active tonight I think.

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

    TKM: I feel your pain!

    Mornin' Yewtree suspects,

    My work toy crapped out yesterday so I couldn't get half as much doen as I needed. Hopefully, the engineers can get it back up and running today so I can continue my quest for World Domination (For a Better Tomorrow TM).

    Onwards! To coffee! And (hopefully) frikken layzur based asshatary!

    Had a good night's sleep last night. I changed my pillow at the weekend to a good old fashioned feather stuffed one and cannot believe the difference it has made to my sleeping.

    Today will be more of the usual. The boss man returns on Thursday so there are only two more days of easy riding.

    Swimming tonight to look forward to but in the meantime some tea I think.

    Morning bumders

    More pretending to be a vet today and trying to look like I know what I'm talking about. Lots of playing with X-rays and other radioactive stuff lined up for today so I'll be glowing green for a couple of days. Tennis this evening. No time for bikes unfortunately but I guess I can't have everything.

    feeling good after a decent ride into the office, last night I was good with the drink & only had a couple of glasses of wine - not sure where that fits on the drinking scale?

    Today is excel and after a ride home it is probably looking at the singlespeed & trying to fix it (ie, cycle round to a friends house and ask for help)

    3 hours down, just over 3 to go.

    Work night out last night, slightly Welshkev'd but was behaved as I had work at 6am.

    Finally picking up my frame today so will spend the evening putting it together despite not having forks yet. Mate who I sold some stuff to still hasn't paid me and the Rebas I wanted are sold out - now left with the choice of paying £30 more elsewhere or getting them in white.

    No1 minion leaves on Sunday and No2 minion left yesterday so currently staring at a 70+ hour working week next week and for the foreseeable future. Fun times.

    Looks like I'll be working late today, relying on IT and new till system geeks to sort things out for me so I can get all the bits done that I would normally have finished over an hour ago.

    As nice as our new, very expensive till system is, we have just as much trouble as we did on the old one. It just looks prettier when its broken.

    Work this morning then running away at 1pm. Have to go to the drs and the evil nurse is going to take blood for testing. Not my idea of fun. Then boring chores for the afternoon like food shopping and getting a new tyre for the bike so will go for a mooch round Cardiff to see if I can find what I want ready for the weekend.

    I should go for a run but I really do not have the inclination at all whatsoever...

    We know what you mean Matthew, you can't fool us! ... gqTEcu9KSM

    Drove from Cambridge to south wales for work this morning, A14 closed! M6 down to two lanes! Driving anywhere really sucks these days, made it to work just after lunch and minced and faffed for the rest of the afternoon!

    Nice short week though so not all bad! Oooh! In other news, got me afghan medal today so am now a war hero, not a real one like sheeps but i'm liking it!

    Evening Hamster mis-users,

    Just finished off a bottle of Carrefours finest French plonk, though I've not managed to get h'd or even bg13'd so far this holiday! Getting ready to get bitten to death by mozzies tonight. Seems even industrial strength insect repellent plus my garlic flavoured sweat (makes mental note to book a place with air con next time) won't keep the little barstewards off.

    Anyhow, best get some kip, it's a hard day at the pool tomorrow :-D
