Storm last night scared the censored out of the cats, got woken up by them pawing at my feet at about 1am.

Rode in through a damp but absolutely beautiful Nonsuch park, just a shame about the detritus on the road.

Today i am mostly skiving I think, off to go and get some sausage rolls.

    Indeed, moist in Bushy Park as well.
    Some quite spectacular lightning last night, or so my wife tells me. I slept through most of it.
    It's Fryday so the delights of the Fryday Fry up Fantasia are calling. Should I go for the extra bubble as well?
    Have fun folks.

    Day off, forecast of a nice hot day, water chilled, long ride planned.

    It's wet, where's my heat wave?

    Morning.

    It was indeed a stormy night last night and that was just the warm up for tonight's storms :shock:

    Early finish today so less tea and loafing for me 8)

    I watched the storm last night, amazing lightning but hardly any thunder. Until the big bang that made me censored myself.

    all this talk of bad weather makes me glad I'm away from tomorrow morning :) (that's if the plane doesn't get hit by lightning)

    work today followed by pub later :)

    I've not yet talked to anyone today who wasn't woken up by this storm.

    Have a good sunshine break Mr h. Dare I ask if it's all inclusive? :P

    Pedalled in today, quite humid but not too bad. I think I'm going to get roasted on the way home so I may need to sink a cold beer or two before I head home to keep me hydrated. Next uplift venture now sorted and its a double header :) - but in September :( Ho hum.

    I suspect h is on some sort of all inclusive holiday black list and it would set off alarm bells as soon as he tried to book one :wink:

    No storm last night, but lightening on my way to an interview this morning. Had that then went and bought a new S works Tarmac. oops. Followed by breakfast at a lovely hotel where the espresso was great (double) but cost me far too much then back home for another espresso and to buy the rest of the stuff for the bike!

    You bought an S works Tarmac and all the bits for it and you complain that the espresso was too expensive :lol:

    If anyone has a spare missile kicking around I have a use for it.
    If anybody sees a low flying spineless twunt with a rocket up his aris I don't know anything about it.

    have to be small enough for the censored or just able to carry him far far away?

    Update. Happy now after a barsteward of a week at work - project finished, rum consumed and gravity based double header booked at Park Wales and Cwmcarn on consecutive days in early Sept 8) B&B where we're staying serves up an evil 'Full Welsh' brekkie - like a full English but more filling and less healthy.

    I'm guessing it's only the crises in Gaza and Ukraine that's keeping Cyprus off the front pages this week?
