Morning Losers!

Well, my stomach is feeling a lot better. This is good, and I plan on starving myself a little while longer as a) I've lost weight and b) more room for tomorrows monster meal :mrgreen:

Managed all my shopping yesterday, but now need to wrap it all. I'm at work until whenever the most senior member of staff gets bored (though I'm leaving by 1pm shhh) when I'll be free for a week. Woooo

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

    Mornin' exes and double-exes

    In work and feeling as rough the north-facing end of a south-bound badger. On the plus side, I can probably contaminate many people whilst I here. Excellent. Also on the plus side, it's the last working day of the year, so I should be on for an early release for good behaviour.

    Tomorrow morning was supposed to spent out on the bike, but we'll see if I can breath deeply without coughing up a kidney, first! Loafing may be the order of the day.....

    Onwards! There's gotta be coffee somewhere in this crapshack!

    Today i am much less full of cold than yesterday though i am coughing this should hopefully spread it at work until they let me leave, which probably wont be early swines!

    I feel marginally festive today which is probably a good thing.

    Onwards towards home time then a trip down the M4, so beware who ever is on the M4 i will be stalking you!

    Morning bumders

    Today is going to be hell... I've agreed to do the festive 500 on strava with a mate over the next 7 or 8 days, the distance itself isn't a problem. The problem is it means I've got to get out on the sodding road bike today in this bloody weather for 3 or 4 hours. At the moment I'm in bed, this may not change for a while yet.

    Morning crudites,
    Interesting drive in, cars littered by the side of the road after driving through massive puddles. its not oftern we get any weather down here in the south east.
    Last night was a mix of moving furniture around (stabbed myself in my palm with my floor standing speaker spikes) and building up the new bike, wife is insisting on calling it Kazza as she gets fed up with me refering to my other ladies. 90% there now just waiting on the Pikes to turn up.
    So come new year Beyonce will be up for sale and i can order those spangly carbon all mountain wheels i've been hankering after.
    anywhoo I'll be at "work" until i get bored and then attempt to get through the traffic.

    Mornin' crudders,
    A morning of nothingness at work today. A few punters will phone and ask stupid questions about why they can't get their stuff delivered tomorrow or some such.
    Interesting sight on the way in this morning. A fence had blown down, not unusual in itself, to reveal a garden with full fence to fence red carpet.
    Anyway, hope you all enjoy the festive break. I'm off to think about my entry for the 2014 death pool.

    Morning chaps.

    2 hour endurance ride in the sun (who expected that?) with some mates, then a walk in the woods to the pub with Mrs Mpatts. Meet some mates there, booze, mince pie, wobble home.

    At some point I need to buy some supplies (not least I remebered this morning that I have forgotten Mrs Mpatts table present). Unfortunately she's left for work already so I can't measure the wiper blades on her car.

    Morning all

    Had an unexpected night out last night with the gf and a few friends we've not seen in a while as they all live various places around the globe. But have woken up hangover free :)

    Last if the Xmas shopping has been done, I need to collect my car from the pub and then I can start drinking again :)

    Merry Christmas bumders

    Morning Gays

    Sitting on a pointless conference call at the moment. Once this is done, I am finally free.

    Xmas shopping done and dusted. Off to see family and friends this afternoon for drinks and food, then more boozing back at home later tonight.

    Let the eating and drinking commence !

    Merry Xmas all
  • Alreet crimblers.

    A few too many red wines last night so I smell like a micro brewery, work will consist of specing steelwork and wrapping the mrs pressies then home at lunch to prep tomorrows dinner.

    Bike? What bike, I'd have to dust it down first as it hasn't had a serious ride since, well, I've forgotten when.

    Is it possible to skip tomorrow entirely?

    You'll need lots of energy. Plus presents & censored might get in the way.

    Really looking forward to tomorrow with the kids.

    My daughter has a scooter coming to her and it is going to be great teaching her how to ride it. My son has a new bike coming - Islabike Beinn 20. It will be his first geared bike and it is going to be even better going out for rides with him as he will be so much quicker - he has long since out grown the gearing on his Cnoc 16.

    And that is even before we get to grown up activities of eating the finest food and drinking the finest wine and beer all day long! Superb!
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    censored awful day, visit to the Drs out of hours last night as I'm having severe dizyness and nausea, diagnosed as a viral infection, warned off driving and my balance is shot so riding is a no no as well, at least normally I can stay up rubber side down on road sections! Still feel crapola and can't drink (too much anyway) either due to the meds, hopefully feeling better tomorrow!

    Back in Llandudno for the first time since the CCC2CC. Off for a beer.
  • Feel like death and to add to the mix I also have a tooth/gum infection, maybe its a dose of the bad aids. Anywho guess who has to try and ring the only emergency dentist in the whole city up tomorrow morning to try and get an appointment.

    Merry xmas everyone
