A Damn Windy Tuesday...

Morning Losers!

Where the hell did this wind come from!? It felt like my roof was going to be blown off last night!

I have a feeling I'm coming down with a cold as I got that sensation of numbness at the back of my throat as I went to bed, so I threw some paracetamol at it. I feel ok at the moment...

More work to do today, plus a bit of shopping if possible. I ran out of sellotape last night, which isn't good. Might be off later to meet a lass, we'll see how the cold is.

Laters!

    I tried commuting in that wind! But one of my Chinese lights failed so thought it safer to return home :(

    Now time to have a boring drive and later will probably be a run
  • Morning all,

    Still in mourning over the new star film. other than that quiet wind down in the office into Christmas..

    Need to rebuild my wheel bearings and all on the bike ready to ride after christmas now. Annoying.

    Like, maybe. My tales of dates usually end up bad though. Well, weird. So I'll not call it that.

    Morning all,
    Good luck tonight TKM, hope it's not the wind that blows you. Wimped out and drove in as it's windy, I'm tired, I'm only working half day and I'm a lazy sod. Need to do some Christmas shopping this afternoon. Just a few little bits. Eating Pandoro in the office, it's the traditional Christmas cake from Verona so I buy one every year. I don't bother telling people I buy it in Lidl.
    Onwards, to mediocrity...

    I left the bike at home as well today, just couldn't be farked fighting through the wind and rain.

    Back in a school today for the last day of term. Same as last Friday but this time it's a one of them Jesus schools. Hoping for a quiet day and early finish.

    Hola bitches

    Been a busy crudder here today, driving people to the slopes, shopping with the chalet hostesses, fixing random stuff, washing vans etc.
    Weather lovely and sunny in the mountains, no wind and still nobsign of any snow! The hire shops are doing mountain bikes now to try and get some money in.

    Anyway, i'm off, need a dump!

    Evening Wage Slaves,

    Just trying to finish up at work so I can leave the minions to it over Christmas. Christ I am knackered but may sneak a beer on the way home :)
