Morning Losers!

It's the day before Christmas Eve, and I've decided that I'm never going to get these presents built. Fark it. I cba.

Today, I've got to build a studio. I'm hoping that I've done most the work already, but I can't remember where I got up to. Oops.

Tonight, probably more present building.

Laters!

    'ning coonts. Off out for a short ride as soon as it gets light. Then the sheer joy of doing the Christmas shop in Morrisons in Toss on Wye, with my bottom feeder. Aisles full up of trollies, like landing craft on Gold beach. Personally, facing MG42's on Gold looks a more inviting option though.

    And later a movie too, and then home....Oh what a perfect day. :cry:
    ....I don't know why; It's a perfectly cromulent word....

    Morning crudités, thanks for the reminder KM, tomorrow is wrapping day then!

    Need to find the headset I took off an old Marin as. I'm sure it's lighter than the one that came with my new frame, but where did I put it........that will probably take up most of today then!

    The Goat now has a festive coating of snow, when it turns black that will make a nice counterpoint against the snowy backdrop!

    Meanwhile looks like it will be another quiet day of slacking.....onwards and upwards!

    Work joys today :(

    Went to a carol concert in a pub last night - was good fun, but ended up leaving a car there. So a lovely 6.5 mile run down the dark country lanes to get it this morning :) tired now though as I've been up for far too long

    Later should be the pub as I break up from work today

    Drove in to work as I'm feeling lazy, there's censored all traffic and its still a bit blowy out there. Warm and snoozy in the car. This means I won't be riding in any more this year as I'll need the car tomorrow for all the booze my customers are going to bring me, or not. Distinct lack of booze this year. I'll make up for this by going to the pub tonight as practice for going to the pub tomorrow.
    Until then tea and a few mince pies beckon.

    Morning saddle sniffers,

    Last day of work before a bit time off for increased food and alcohol consumption. Today will be a slow one if I don't do anything so might have to trawl the internet for some entertainment.

    Please enjoy this non-denominational winter scene

    The goat looks cold. It needs warming up.

    TBH I don't know what all this presents/wrapping censored is all about !! Don't get it. Last minute shopping is another one - do we really need that much shopping for two days ?!

    However, I do understand Christmas...just relax,

    Anyway, two more days for me here in the office.

  • Shopping is done now. It wasn't as busy in the middle of Leeds as I've seen it in the past.

    Now, just to see if I can finish building the homemade presents... :?
