    Morning,
    Bit of a lazy ride in this morning, CBA towards the end of the week. Work meh today, if I can find anything to do that is. Then off out for a meal later and a few beers to see if I want to join a cult.

    That would have been a good call but unfortunately I seem to have already eaten the ginger nuts. Trip to Sainsbury's at lunchtime is in order. What an exciting life I lead.

    We have a Morrions close by, I try not to go there because I end up with some random fresh desert. I nabbed some what I thought were chocolate digestives this morning but it appears I snagged some that have caramel in them, shall have to inquire with Le Wife what these monstrosities are about was none to pleased with the weird chewy texture.

    Afternoon, been like summer all week, can't complain at the 4am start when I finish around 1ish and get to enjoy the sun.

    Shame its to revert to winter again, oh well I'm off the next three days and looking forward to the alarm not going off at 3am!

    Tonight is pub and Thai grub evening, so leaving some gut space for that. Luckily I'm working from home tomorrow on the excuse of getting the car MOT'd so can have a bit of a lie in. And will be a good excuse to get the bike out to ride back from and to the MOT station. Double win :)

    Well I'm at the cult gathering. Beer in hand and food on the way, not bad so far.

    I was given a free ticket to the Bridgewater in Manchester to listen to Bach's Magnificat in D. I'm cultured, you filthy swines.
    Just got home and helping myself to some toast and lotus spread. Nom nom nom

    Yeah Friday

    Working in Chester today, so I've put a bike in the car to cycle across town as the traffic is shoot. Issue is I haven't got a clue where to dump it as I'm not used to coming in from this side yet

    Later is the youngest rugrat coming back from his first ever residential - I imagine he will be knackered as he's not got without sleep, so maybe no pub later!!!!!!

    Morning Losers!

    Good nights sleep for me again. It seems camping has restarted my sleeping pattern, this is good. What's bad though, is that my house doesn't have any milk or tea bags in it. This is a travesty, and means I need to head to the shop before I can expect too much to be accomplished.

    I'm hoping to service the bikes today, so that I can get out riding again. Other than that, it's back over to Bury for the weekend, which should be nice.

    Laters!

    Finally, it's been a long week. I had 2 phone calls before 8am this morning, one from a German that didn't know we are in a different time zone and couldn't understand why I was telling him to ring after 8.30. The other was an Italian trying to buy stuff we don't sell that wouldn't take no for an answer. Could be a long day at this rate. No cafe for me as I'm bunking off at 2, I'll have to get the others to bring me back a sarnie. Roll on the weekend...

    Sympathise on the people from abroad being annoying, spend most of yesterday afternoon with a Spanish lady who, why do they have no sense of personal space! Still, she was none to pleased when I installed a wireless certificate on her laptop an it refused to connect to any networks :lol:
    Im blaming the fact everything is in Spanish including the keyboard.

    Anyway, morning etc our resident kamikaze cyclist seems to have returned, caused a minor accident at one roundabout then proceeded to ignore right of way an barrel into another nearly causing another one. An we wonder why motorists hate us!

    Afternoon bum sniffers,
    Not much happening here, slow ride in after little sleep last night. Not looking forward to the ride home but the weather appears to be holding out so might be ok.

    Afternoon mongs,

    Working from home today as I had to get the car MOT'd. Luckily it passed first time so no expensive bills. The minions have probably left by now so I might send a few late emails :twisted:

    Something that gives garages excuses to find stuff wrong with your car and charge you for it. But not in my case...

    Morning butt munchers

    Bacon carriers fed and sorted, brekky had and now it's time for lots of work clearing out the cottage that is getting renovated! The roof space is packed tight with straw which they used as insulation in the good old days, will take a couple of days to get it out and burnt, or a whole week if current levels of motivation continue!

    Morning Losers!

    Nice day here in Bury, I'm off to meet some friends for dinner in a little while, then I'm off to the football to watch us beat Millwall, then I'm off to a St. George's Quiz tonight with some friends. Should be a good day.

    Morning Losers!

    Typical Sunday here for me. Not sure what fine, fun, exciting things I'll get up to this afternoon, however I'm sure they'll be nothing fine, fun or exciting.

    No biking for me this weekend but I'll be taking the bike up North next weekend for a bit of North York's moors action. Pretty uneventful day but got a few jobs done at least and works isn't too busy this week coming.

    Monday

    Mehning Losers!

    I should be returning to work happy and refreshed, however all I feel is tiredness and bitterness. I really don't like my job is what I'm saying.

    So today is the first day back at work for a week, where I find out what's broken and what needs sorting out. Luckily it's not retard minion, so that's a blessing.
    After work, I have no plans. It will be very weather dependant.

    Morning all,
    Feeling rather old this morning. Nothing to do with being older, everything to do with beer festivals within falling over distance of home and it being Monday morning. Got to go and buy the cakes later, might put some laxatives in a few.
