Morning Losers!

Tonight I got voted in as the chairman of a publicity committee. This is good as it means I can implement change :twisted:

Today it's back to work for a deathly quiet day. It's like working in a ghost town this week. Main job today is moving a load of equipment to a new room as it's getting collected tomorrow. At least, I hope it is, or we'll have to move it all back again.... sod that.

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

    Morning freaks

    Today will involve revision and riding bikes of the skinny tyre variety, plus lots of waiting for the phone to ring to hopefully tell me the new bike is ready.

    Got an email from Evans yesterday to say it had arrived, their site showed as in-stock and to await a call, although worryingly their website is now showing stock in mid-July, hopefully it's not a censored -up on their part.

    Should be fun for some XC stuff, moving to Wales this summer, will be within riding distance of Afan and Brechfa, plus the Brecons on my doorstep, be used for bikepacking a bit and also have desire to get into some XC racing, should fit the bill nicely. Was in two minds as to go for the model up or not, but for the sake of XT and lighter wheels for £700 I'm not fussed. For £200 I can get my current hubs rebuilt into a nice light pair of wheels anyway.

    Weary is a good word for today.
    Morning all, nice wobble in to work in the sunshine and again nobody tried to kill me. Half day today as I'm taking time in lieu for having a working lunch on Saturday. Going to go and meet the EPO for lunch in Twickenham then home before picking up the smaller child of female persuasion. I assume she's ok, haven't heard from her since I dropped her off at Heathrow on Fryday. We've seen pictures of her on the school twatter feed though.
    Onwards, to tea and cookies.

    Hardluck losers off work on holiday till Saturday night then only 3 days to do. Plenty of riding with youngest only downside we have to put up with silky teenager for a bit. Quad biking shortly on way to Sherwood. Busy old day.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Afternoon gits,

    Woke up way too early on account of the free grog I drank last night, woke myself up by pedalling to work - and it's nice 'n' sunny in the subtropical sarf east. Cycling in made me rather hungry so I'm now stuffing my face with a big chicken teriyaki with curry sauce :)

    Half empty in the office as most people seem to have pushed off somewhere for half term holidays. This also means seats on trains and in pubs - win.

    Afternoon. Late night watching a movie last night, so predictably not feeling too tired tonight. Prob an early night tonight so will wake tomorrow feeling like death. Bike cleaning is on the cards for tonight, not much other than that. Not too busy at work so hopefully will get caught up on everything I didn't get done yesterday.
