Morning Losers!

It's Friday, and I've just got to get through today before I have a weeks holiday :mrgreen:

Went out on a ride last night and found some nice singletrack that takes me back home, so I'm slowly building up a decent ride. So far it's only 5 miles, but it's a nice blast.

Tonight I'll be back in Bury. The joys.

Laters!

    Yeah Friday

    Current wife is off to a stupidly expensive spa for the weekend, which means I've got to do the school run - therefore I'm working from home today

    Later should be the pub, but as the rugrats are in a production of cats this weekend I'm going to be sober and driving them around - the worse bit....... The wife is taking my car so I shall be driving a ferkin beetle convertible :(

    Right, more tea and completing a board pack awaits

    Morning all,
    Slow start as I'm taking the large male child to the quack's. He has the same cough I do, just in a monosyllabic 16 year old version. As a result I'll have to skip going to the cafe, this is very bad. But the others will bring me fry-up in bread which is good.
    Onwards... to getting out of bed.

    Drove to work, arrived in a bad mood. Work meh, followed by pub lunch then a bit more work then home early to look after the young un while the youngerer one goes to a party. Think I'll take him out if the weather is still good. At least the in-laws will be gone by the time I get home. This deserves a smilie :D
    I love horses, best of all the animals. I love horses, they're my friends.

    Morning, half day for me to get the stitches removed, thank fark! Hoping i'll be able to get out biking again soon, plus get a decent nights sleep and have a bit more mobility in the neck.

    Working the weekend (obviously as the weathers to be great), but can't complain as nothing will be as rubbish as my previous job!

    Sun is semi out, im semi and the bike is in the car.

    Gentle spin round what's open on the twrch trail tonight just to keep the legs moving :)
  • im semi

    Way too much information there...

    This afternoon might involve attempting to hide expensive shiny things from the wife. Tonight involves a stag do and curry. Tomorrow will no doubt be assisted by pills.

    Anyhow we're nearly there - the weekend approaches and a there's lot of footy to follow. Just have to keep myself awake with coffee 'till pedalling home time.

    Of someone driving a car with a hood that folds like one on an old pram? no. I take it the roof will be staying up and you will be wearing a paper bag in case anyone that knows you should see you.
