7am in the big HD house...

HD's porridge has bubbled over over in the microwave and he can't find the box of tea bags he bought yesterday.

    It's an age thing.
    Embrace the new exciting finds.

    Porridge about to go on.
    Then the turbo wheel will finally be replaced on the bike for a proper one. :P

    Soooooooooooooo tired, but for no real reason.

    Colds and sniffles throughout household.

    That's all really - ciao for now.

    Yeah Saturday - feel OK despite way too much ale last night and Erm a few too many shots

    Now off for a very wet 25 miles to pick up the car, then it's get the fixie ready for a social ride around a few Shropshire pubs with the lads - going to be messy

    Watching Timmy Time with the kiddies as the Missus prepares my tuna and cheese flat bread toastie. Don't need to do much today for a change but not really enjoying my relaxation as I've caught the seasonal dead disease.

    HD, we've all been there, sticky porridge is a hard clean up. Porridge still a bit runny after 2 and a half minutes so going for the 3 and risking bubbly meltdown is always tricky.

    Solution - 3 minutes in a bigger bowl.
    My good deed for the day.

  • Feeling far better than I ought to be this morning

    Couple of things learnt from yesterday:-

    Vodka and cranberry juice - very very nice and I don't normally like vodka in any form
    Yo Sushi - WTF, disgusting but perhaps not the best thing to decide to eat when pished up. Shouldn't have let ourselves be talked out of KFC ( good drunken dirty food) for it.

    Think the sofa and BT Sport/Sky will win out today

    Ferrules for Dirk arrived this morning - perfect fit for top tube, too big for mech/stay. aaarrrrggghhh. Ordered some more just now, so another week's delay.

    Is there no end to this pain?

    At least it means I can get it part cabled and taped up.

    Morning All.

    Had a good lie in which was needed after yesterday - just a few aches and pains to get rid of. Off out shortly to appreciate the talents of the Waitrose Saturday girls and sup some free coffee. Later will be a shopping trip to Bromley unfortunately even though we are getting stuff we need rather than Christmas shopping.

    There's a part 2 to this thread?!

    Why is HD talking in the 3rd person?

    Morning

    Toots and I are indoors due to weather and recovery purposes. MF - this cold is of the sleep inducing constant sticky green manufacturing, endless gravelly cough making, headache inducing, lingering variety.
    Good luck with that one Blakey, let me know how you get on.

    Vodka - has to be of high quality and straight out of the freezer into a chilled shot glass. Any other method is sacrilege.

    laters.

    Very wet ride to Shrewsbury, so no having a bath to warm up before I go out again :)

    The big question - do we follow the route with 8 pubs and 20 miles or 7 pubs and 25 miles with one of those being a Belgium bar?
  • pinnopinno Posts: 42,747
    Take the long route to the Belgian bar and the short route home. Forget the rest.

  • Belated morning's greetings to all. Enjoying the Huey show on 6Music and doing some chores. Having a dubbel or two with dinner, which is some smelly French cheese.
    Off to Portsmouth later to deliver a bottle of absinthe to a friend. Then we are going to a party in a boozer with some of his motorcyclist friends.
    I can't see any drawbacks to this as a plan.
    Cheerio.
    Ps Pinno's suggestion is excellent.

    Piño speaks wisely for a change.

    At bmw having the car it's end of warranty check and MOT. Odds on them trying to censored me over before I just say it's ok I'll drive it home and fix it myself lol(well my mate will)

    Soaking wet and 2 degrees up in ribble valley. Not dressed appropriately

    Traditional slow start with mild hangover was had. Finally got round to going to the dump with a load of stuff, managed to avoid some ridiculous traffic. Bit of chilling between sorting a few bits and bobs. Work Christmas do tonight, should probably try to behave. Fat chance. Might cycle over to avoid public transport.

    Successfully.
    For years. :P

    I'm going to take a wild guess and say that part 2 will be Sunday?

    That will only work if he's first up.

    He's got a decent chance based on this morning's effort. That was well before most of us lazy feckers were up.

    I see that. 7.03am... on a Saturday?! That's either very keen or a very long Friday night out.

    Only 20 miles cycled and a pint for every 2 miles - good day :)
  • Well I was up at 3.30am but that was to take parents to the airport and I failed to capitalise on the part 2 opportunity.

    Yesterday's ride was a 60km soaker.

    Thats roughly how many miles I managed on Friday :) Although the miles per pint ratio was a bit lower. BTW they've made that qualifying feature at the top of the black run bigger - now looks quite intimidating. We only saw one other bloke do it all day.

    I think I managed 2 pints per mile last night. Thankfully only rode 5 miles.
