Morning Losers!

Yesterday turned out to be a busy day as well. It's all good busy though, sorting out plans, buying £11k worth of toys etc. so I don't mind.

Today the boss is away for a week, so I have to carry on doing what I've been doing, except I've now been given some of her work too. I've already got minions to start investigating things for me :twisted:

Later, get my stuff ready for weekend I think, maybe a bike ride if the wind dies down!

Laters!

    meh

    man-flu is on its way :( went out last night to try and drink through it - and then didn't bother setting my alarm in the hope it would cure me, but been awake since 4.30

    Today is working from home, trying to make sense of yesterdays meeting. Later is study - all in all, a boring day

    For some reason I feel a little bit grey around the gills this morning. Thought I'd get blown off on the way in, no such luck. The first part of today will be spent trying to fix other people's kock ups, again.

    Morning ladies,

    Well yesterday i signed my life away and im working on a thte current place part time in London till september so i will be having a new bike in May too cheer me up.

    It's defiantely looking to be the 2014 dune XR and the shop will kindly swap over the fork and give me a discount, the only bit i will want to change then is brakes to a set of X0 trail brakes then its basicaly perfect set up to what i would have built. then looking at a hardtail for cocking around on in september :) going to be a great year for bike buying.

    Morning Mongs!

    Meh, on top of everything else I've had to cancel tomorrows leave due to a client changing a meeting date and the MD ordering me to attend. This really is getting f**king stupid.

    Makes me wet aslong as i can dump the fox fork from it :) my 2010 Dune R is the best bike i have ever owned in the way it rides after trying many peoples bikes, test riding Santacruz and so on in the past I know its exactly what i like. So makes sense to stick with what I love to ride but now I will have a budget to just go all out on the very best and latest so why the hell not! :P

    Started and finished work early, too little time to actually shirk.
    Can't even go for a bike ride 'cos it's pi$$ing down and blowing a howling gale.
    Glasgow tomorrow, should be fun.

    Bye

    Yup, my experience personally of fox forks has been a bit poor, awful small bump sensativity and terrible wear ont he uppers in between services. the Pike is lighter and much better reveiwed also its easier to service on the whole so thats all round win IMO

    Work fun today. I have spent the week being in charge of the various storms going down in our office.

    Had to walk past a murder crime scene this morning - always fun. Love Grangetown.

    And met the other new housemate - a female French dancer. God I hate her already.

    censored if a day but pedalling tomorrow to look forward to. Have narrowed down my search for a new bike to a few options, just need someone to review the things before I drop some cash. Mr h will be happy to know I'm down the pub abusing my liver :)
