Morning bumders

Placement meh continues, penultimate day and an early finish so I can get to the dentist, not sure if that's a win or not. I'm getting sick of these early starts but to make matters worse I just seen an email with all the info for my rotations next week. Apparently the hours are likely be 7:30-20:00 but we're unlikely to finish before 22:00 with all our paperwork... student life has definitely taken a turn for the worse :(

    AB - I would complain - that doesn't give enough time for ale!

    I too am going to the dentist today, then drop my car off at the garage for some warranty work (ie, take it there and they do censored all - bar clean it, so win). The rest of the day is at Chester in my new office, which has been renamed the departure lounge due to the two previous occupants being knobbed off.

    Later should be some study but I have a sneaking suspicion that the pub may win

    How did I miss this? Have a good holiday chap. Make sure you find time to ski in between updates.

    Morning wrong'uns,

    Sat in the cop shop being charged with driving without due care and attention. Fun times!

    Considering my car insurance has already gone up £2k, I dread to think what this will do!

    Morning Losers!

    So, I passed my CBT easily and am now booked in for Mod 1 in a couple of weeks. Great fun, and I realised that riding 30mph on a motorbike isn't nearly as scary as 30mph on a road bike! I promise not to go on about motorbikes like that kowalski bloke!

    Today, hmmm no idea. I ride this afternoon, and other than that... movies and games? Sounds like a plan.

    Laters!

    Just had a call from the estate agent giving us 2 months notice as the landlord wants to build an extra bedroom and sell the house.

    Hopefully today doesn't get any shitter!

    Hello scuttlers

    Apologies for my absence of late, been busy with stuff and nonsense.

    Can't remember when I was last here but still haven't moved into new house as I went to check it out the day before exchange and it was pissing water in through the side wall, another survey shows it needed 6 grands worth of rendering and replistening, fortunately the seller is sorting this but has slowed things down.

    In the meantime I've booked a holiday to India in easter as this will be the most sensible use of time when you're about to move.

    In other news there's an update on Kaiser's trail

    Morning all,
    Beautiful sunny day, and stuck in the office with a mild hangover. Nothing overly exciting going on. Have to shoot home for a bit to meet the DPD driver delivering a new laptop, so at least I get another ride in the sunshine.
    Hope bad luck doesn't come in 3s for you ste_t

    Afternoon mongs!

    Have found out this morning that a once loyal minion has been slagging off all and sundry, myself included, which was possibly the reason why work were being so bloody sensitive about everything. Obviously said minion has to go but I expect that there will be a lot of brown stuff flying around in the process so it's time to don the Teflon Suit.

    Other than that I will be considering the purchase of either a 456C Evo or a Codiene, as I have decided to sell the Pro Carbon Road bike as a: It's hardly used and b:given commitments with kids etc I doubt it ever will be. This might also see the demise of Barry White and the GITD 456 as tbh these could go as well. The Barry hasn't been out in over a year.....

    afternoon all,

    really busy day today. just finished a 2 room install that will keep the powers that be happy. tomorrow is a day of escorting a programmer around site and then I'm off on holiday to visit the outlaws...

    down side is that there's no ride tonight as no local bike shops have formula brake pads in stock!

    Evenin' job knockies,

    Stuff has been happening, work has been hectic and the car is still in bits (but getting back together, having had a new cylinder head fitted).

    Consequently, I've been spending more time on the bike, which is a bonus. I'm now about to hit the auto-factors for the last few bits and pieces, then I'm hitting the chip shop hard.

    You never know, there may even be time for more regular updates. How f**king lucky are you lot, eh?

    Ste-t: oooooh, unlucky, matey. Is this all from the smack earlier in the year?

    Onwards!
