Got up to watch FP3. Slept through half of it.

Now waiting half an hour for quali to start. Going to have a sh*t load of food in the mean time. Today is revision.

Laters.

    why was JB so slow?

    Morning

    couldn't sleep despite taking pints of sleep aid last night :( Today is do some work now whilst waiting for the GP and then drop the rug rats off at my mums and a dirty w.end away with the current wife :)

    We are taking our bikes as there is a point to point 12 miles away from the hotel - so a few drinks and bets are in order - the only issue is I'm taking Stevo's fav bike and Ludlow is rather hilly

    Both McLarens had sensor problems on their engines that set them into a "safe mode" that just keeps the engine running so the car can get back to the pits. They couldn't sort it out, so Button had minimal running and Magnussen didnt set a time.

    Morning bumders

    Been away for a busy week of farm work, forgot to post a card for the mother, I'll be avoiding going back home for a while now... Today will be faffing with bikes +/- riding bikes and possibly some work too. Oh, also F1.

    Slept well but feel reet sore all over, this work thing is not good for old people!

    Today is obviously bacon based initially, then if the weather is ok it'll be out somewhere to do stuff!

    I wil keep you all informed of my interesting day later.

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

    You just can't bring yourself to use the F-word on this forum can you :)

    Morning Flap Hunters,

    Legs are aching after a very competitive communt home last night. So many roadies to embarrass... Anyhow, I'm coffee'd up and ready to avoid jobs :roll: Thai take away tonight and a bit of footy to be watched, but apart from that it's an easy day for me.

    Morning all.
    Lazy start to the day. The joy of having kids that are big enough to look after themselves. Assuming they can be arsed to get out of bed.
    Pottering in garage and tea drinking are the order of the day. Might go for a ride through the park and for a pint later.

    Well, that's the shopping and washing done. Now to kick back and watch the day drift on by.

    I may play bikes later.

    Onwards! To caffeine!

    its a bike unappreciated on most forums!

    great fun today, cycled to the point to point (900ft of climbing) then a decent amount of ale - the cycle home was a lot harder
