Morning Losers!

Woke up at 5am this morning for no apparent reason. Lay in bed for 20 mins trying to fall asleep again and thought 'fark it' so got up. Might even be at work early!

Today's mission is to get through work, then go home and apply for a few jobs.

Laters!

    Great sleep for me! Needed it though as I was knackered after the last few days.

    Today is working from home as I've got a board report to do. Good news as I need to see if the bike shop have finished fettling with my main camp bike.

    Later is dads taxi, so no pub

    Morning ditch diggers,
    Out for beer and curry last night, bit windy this morning. Had to drive in as I'm off to a funeral later, old dear from a couple of doors down died. She was the last of the proper old ones around us so another house will be getting tarted up and sold for ridiculous amounts of cash. Lovely and sunny out there though so I wished I'd been on a bike, especially with my own personal tail wind. It's Wednesday so pub later. Until then the usual tea and some form of biscuits whilst dealing with idiots. Onwards and upwards...

    Up early at 5.45 and out on the skinny bike for 35km.

    Today will be filled with "smoothie" and some Salmon Fish.

    Morning, dermatologist had some news for me, the mole cut off was a type 1 melanoma, gotta go back for another surgery, great!

    Oh well at least it was found early, 0.39mm thick, cancer eh, how nice!

    Might have to order the new bike i've been eying up to make myself feel better..

    Blimey, hope that all gets sorted out Schmako. Hayfever has reared it's ugly head again, and is currently kicking me where it hurts. Off to see the asthma doc later so will get some awesome antihystamines prescribed.

    Bloody hell Schmacko thats not good, at least they caught it early though.

    Legs ache today after doing 23 miles yesterday evening, longest I have done so far as I am trying to build up my fitness for a charity bike ride at end of the month. Was supposed to be doing 25 miles but think we are going to do 50 miles now. Should be interesting as its all road, no doubt I will be a disgrace to the lycra clad roadies when I turn up on my mtb with knobblys and baggy shorts :D

    My mate has a 40 ish mile training ride planned for Friday afternoon, good job there is 6 pubs on the route. I might end up stranded in a pub if my legs give in whie I wait for rescue.

    Is it the weekend yet?

    Besy of luck with that Schmako.

    Today has consisted of pedalling in, working, mucking about with my new phone, free lunch and plonk an more pedalling. I'm a bit knackered now but not a bad day overaĺl.

    What he said, but spelt right this time. Good they caught it early. Modern medicine is pretty fookin good and the NHS definitely steps up when needed.

    Thanks chaps, pretty glad they got it early, was just from a random gp visit as i hadn't been in years. If i'd have left it longer could've been worse!

    Sooner the surgery is over the better, bet the weather will be amazing the first couple of weeks in june too and i'll be unable to do anything!

    Fingers crossed, it wouldn't do to miss too much good weather, we get hardly any as it is!

    I think I need to pop to the doctor, a mole on my head seemed more noticeable through my post-cut hair than before (as in, I noticed it in the mirror). Possibly I'm just going a bit baldy, but I think I'm now inspired to get it checked.

    Yep could probably do with missing the sun, if there is any!

    No harm in getting it checked out, the first procedure was pretty painless, just irritating that it limits what you can do for a while.

    New bike will be with me monday so at least i'll have a couple of weeks riding before the second op.
