    Meant to go riding this morning - absolutely pouring down espresso, chilling, heading down the beach with the sprogs foraging at 10.

    How much is she selling the sister for? Any pictures of her norks before she's sold.

    It's stopped raining here, might ride bikes at some point, otherwise it's studying as rather fortunately my schedule put my shifts the right side of the bank holiday, so the group that was covering the ER last week has to work an 8 day week and cover today while I only have a 6 day week starting tomorrow.

    conference call in a min has stopped this morning ride :(

    cider & festival later, might mean a ride in the morning to compensate :)

    That surely constitutes bad planning.
    You are either compromising your cider drinking, or your morning ride.
    Or even worse, both.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    of all the things i enjoy missing on hols, enjoying missing conference calls and webex is around the top of the list

    it's monday, that can only mean one thing...

    enhance my ride by stopping at the baker's for freshly made churros and a cafe solo!

    This morning has dawned wet and miserable so that means only one thing......ditch the riding plans and put the scalextric set together so that the children can do some racing :mrgreen:

    I presume you include yourself as one of the children. I used to build a huge Scalextric track at my folks' gaff when they went away. The boy has lost interest in it now.
    Weather is rather moist so a day pottering around the house and garage. Went out for a ride with the boy on his MTB to check it over before Swinley this week. I now know I need to true the back wheel and straighten the mech hanger.
    Coffee first.

    Morning 'Tards,

    Just catching up with some admin and getting supplies. Later I may take a photo of the huge cardboard box in the garage that contains my new bike and post it on here to tease Arran :)

    Not even just Scottish rain ... absolutely lashing down an hour ago and flooded back garden ...

    So a lazy afternoon with Roisin Murphy's Mi Senti ep ...

    Set the alarm early this morning to go for a ride. Could hear the rain lashing on the conservatory roof, so quick change of plan and went back to bed.

    Eventually dragged myself down the LBS to get bike serviced. Apparently needs new chain and cassette. Really will have to improve My own fettling skills.

    Still lashing it down.

    BORED :(

    Scalextric brings back painful memories... My parents got me one but with an unspeakable act of cruelty they got a set with the sharp inside bends and the jolly cars would never stay on the track. How they must have hated me...

    Garden done and looking reasonably tidy, ride done and dusted. Sister unfortunately was not sold at car boot. Getting cloudy now so indoors listening to Bose sound link mini through iPad and contemplating another coffee

    Perfect. Bruiser was a bit too manly for him.

    It's not, the Lappierre is up for sale. New bike is the Panzer:

    You're dead right. When the ladies ask, I can tell them honestly that I have 8 inches :)

    I also tell the ladies I have 8 inches, but to achieve this, I have to fold it in half. :wink:
