Welcome to the Day after Boxing Day, off to Cannock in an hour, so early birds here!

Last ride on the Kraken before it comes apart to build the FS probably!

    Morning! Don't want to know how much weight i've put on the last couple of days, this morning will comprise of (a long overdue) cleaning of the bikes and might head up the hills later.

    No snow here, just a decent frost!

    We've had about 4" of snow last night. If it could do the same again on the 5th January, then I won't need to go back to work!
    There's some chemical warfare going on in my gut, I'm surprised there's no mushroom clouds everytime I fart!

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

    Morning Tards,

    I'm up but the 'ladies' of the house are still snoring. It wad safer for all if I got up as I'm suffering from 'Kickingmules syndrome' after last night's curry :)

    Today we're off round the in laws for a get together where I'll have to put up with some tedious twunts, but at least his daughters are fit.

    Morning terd berglars!

    Staying in a log cabin up sherwood way, enjoyed watching it snow last night but it bought a large branch down taking a few roof tiles with it, luckily it missed the car!!

    May venture out for a pedal later post bacons.

    The problem when its cold enough to see your breath is that I worry my nice warm farts are as obvious behind me

    Nice slow start today after much excess yesterday. We stayed over at the wife's uncles so lots of kids running around and a swim meant a nice start.

    Since we got back I've been cutting wood and then a run with a pal.

    Now is relax before we go to the theatre later and I'm driving so a relatively ale free day!

    Well, that was fun! Just went for Christmas take two at my folks as my younger sister was working on the day. Being a thoughtful soul she bought each of the kids a DVD, except my niece that got a camera tripod, a camera bag, a DVD and lets not forget the Canon DSLR. Admittedly second hand but a tad more than the others got. My two were a little confused by this but didn't do anything other than laugh. My nephew was less than pleased and had a bit of a dig at his sister, then it all kicked off over dinner. My lot and my Dad just carried on eating whilst taking the kick out of my bro in law. Nice to get home to a bit of peace and quiet. My Dad might come to visit tomorrow for that very reason.
    Don't you love families at Christmas?
