Morning Losers!

Mental weekend for me. It involved moving an organ into my house, searching for a graveyard, learning shakespeare, failing my Mod 2 test and then learning about mental plans for work!

Today, my boss and I are contesting the plans for work as they're stupid.

Laters!

    I thought you meant you were meeting me when I read that! There would definitely be a pub involved with that, maybe not cycling though.

    You mean a tweek with a spoke key didn't work?

    Morning all,
    Should be busy again at work today. I have to get everything sorted because it's Friday for me today and into a 6 day weekend. fortunately we left it too late to order a new sink and extractor hood so I can't do much to the kitchen. :lol:
    Out to lunch with the EPO by the river in Twickenham later.
    Have a good day everybody.

    Morning suckers,

    No work for me today nor tomorrow. A minion has given me the lurgy and I subsequently feel like I'm dying in the face. I think a cheeky breakfast out followed by a full day of gardening (digging/killing weeds,) is in order. Might have a beer later, just because.

    Current job are trying to get me to skive my second day at new job as we've been invited to London to the 'House of Peroni' for free beers/food which would be a pretty good leaving party.

    Right, time to get out of bed. Laters!

    You need a bigger hammer then. :D
    I read on the Sheldon Brown website about trailside repairs and it said to stand on it to pop it back the way it was as the spokes should still have the right tension to hold it once it popped back. Tried it when the boy pringled his wheel and got it good enough to clear the frame but I had to undo the V brakes. Then got him to ride my bike back more carefully than he rode his own.

    Afernoon Gimboids,

    Working from home today while my car gets its air con fixed and some bloke comes round to sort out stuff out in the garden that I can't be arrised with. So it's coffee aplenty and whatever is in the fridge for lunch as wifey & ankle biter are out amusing themsleves (thankfully). And a bit of work...

    Got a good pedal in this morning taking the long way back from the car repair place and may do the same when I come to pick it up. Any excuse.
