Morning,

Guessing Stevo is happy after the weekends football.

Glad you all enjoyed a few mm of rain or just sun. Sea mist here all yesterday and today. Can't say my weekend was amazing with hindsight, ankle feels like it has gone back a few weeks after 1 proper ride and 1 recovery. Therefore if anyone is trying to get a hell of the north ticket let me know. I would prefer not to see it wasted (though I am still tempted, I just have half an eye on Mallorca come May)

Onwards to the meetings and the admin catch up that I have been instructed not to touch so a colleague will do it and become grounded, and pigs might fly

    Morning tarmacers, some stats for you.

    13 fence panels were sucessfuly painted, trimmed and installed over the weekend.
    66.9km's were ridden.
    24 beers were drunk.
    6 bottles of wine were drunk.
    1 chair was painted
    2 headaches/hangovers were encoutered.
    1 leg from a lamb called Albert was roasted.

    Tomorrow will consist of a trip to the cemetry to put some ashes in the ground, lunch at the pub with family and then two of us will nip off for a nice long wobble on some bicycles.

    Foggy and cold start here, was drenched when i got to work, it was like cycling through a cloud.

    Looks really nice now though so might see if i can nip off early and have a long cycle home.

    Quite fresh here this morning, but sunny. Lots of cyclists out, and not many cars. Unfortunately I was in a car as I sill can't do anything without having a major coughing fit. This has really become quite boring. Work is also boring today. That's because I'm getting loads of retail customers on overflow because it's so busy. There is no limit to the silly questions they can ask.

    My first day of working from home in my new job! It's so nice having windows and not having nasty people try and bite/spit at/kick/fight/abuse me or make my life a general hell. That said. It's the school holidays and I'm waiting for MrsNapD to return from taking the kids out so that could all change.

    Congrats on the new gig. What you doing now? WFH is always good I reckon.

    Indeed I am. One point further ahead than we might have been if Palace hadn't done their now traditional title wrecking act; still a game in hand and one less game to play.

    Work was a bit of a shock given I had largely avoided it over the weekend despite it being year end reporting season - next 2 days might be heavy though. The ride home tonight was genuinely warm - I ended up with my cycling jacket tied around my waist half way through the communt. I think I deserve a G&T.

    It just happens to be close at hand. I'll need to head down the offy if I want some Newcastle Broon Ale.
