meh, shoot sleep :(

today is lots of parenting, starting with swimming lessons, then this afternoon a swimming party with their friends (hoping for some yummy mummies).

Later is the pub, so I think there is censored all chance of a bike ride especially as I need to have a look at the current wife's car after someone kindly remodelled every panel on the drivers side for her yesterday.

right, more tea

    Looking at it wont do much good. Cant you sell yourself some parts and fix it? :)

    I slept pretty well so feel a fair bit better than I have done this week. Today will be doing my tax return, getting my ski gear out of the loft and coffee.

    It keep snowing here in sunny Bury. Hopefully the game this afternoon won't be affected.

    I'm bored shootless. I'm even getting bored of the interwebs!

    Laters!

    Stay at a hotel near the eastmids airport friday night then out first thing saturday morning, it is acceptable to have booze before seven am when you're off on your holidays isn't it?

    We're off to Val Thorens France, where are you going?

    Didn't mean you were a gayboarder but thought i'd try for a bite off one of em!

    We're off to Lech, near St. Anton.

    Fly out from London City early on Friday, pick up a car in Zurich and drive across into Austria. Come to think of it, staying near the airport Thurs night is not a bad idea as I hate getting up early, but would have to drag all my gear into & across London the day before and not sure I can be arrised !

    Evenin' all,
    Lazy start to the day, the joy of having teenagers rather than kids that get up at dawn. I think I may be regressing to that state myself. Changed the cam sensor on the motor, thankfully it worked. Cut the hoses on the Cotic and fitted all the bits off the old Pinnacle onto the boys frankenbike. Had to stop to drink tea a few times as it's a bit chilly out there. That felt like a good afternoons work, unwinding now and warming up.
