    It's Fryday so bacon is definitely in order. Managed a reasonably pleasant wobble in this morning, if a touch chilly. Hoping for a reasonably quiet day, even though I know it's unlikely, and will then bunk off early as it's POETS day. Or in language Seano can understand:
    blah blah wobble blah blah cold blah blah bacon blah blah POETS blah blah...

    Wobbled in from the carpark, im being lazy again. Takes ten minutes to drive in, or the same to cycle in, using the excuse my usual commuter hack is missing a front mech, again lazy i just couldnt be bothered to finish building it. Not trusting the lockup at work with my other two bikes. Last time I brought a nice bike in it ended up with scratches galore on it.

    Again Friday woo cake an coffee, well coffee I cant see any cake. Done my self allotted ten minutes of work now nosing online at parts to fix the car can see this ending up pricey.

    That's one of the good things about my new 7:30 starts, I get my bike in at the end between the stand and the wall of the bike shelter so nothing can get near the important bits.

    When I ride to work I just lean it up in my office.

    If only, ours people purposely leave their locks in "their" spot if you use said spot you usually end up with a note and some marks we have some very odd people here.

    Homer, would love to bring it in but theres not really the space. would make runs to the coffee machine more fun though.

    Evenin All,

    Bit of a tough day all told but have left some of the minions crunching the numbers which I will review over the weekend from home. At least we sorted out one of our overseas operations who presented us with an alleged €7m profit hit on the day we needed to finalise profit numbers - that subsequently turned out to be a false alarm :roll:

    Knackered now but could really do with catching up on some exercise so may have to go for a run - tomorrow.

    "Moonshine - Type 47". I can imagine it.

    Is that the garden centre on the way to Sao Rafael?

    you assume it was the first date!! jamming was kept to a minimum as was raping!! but went well!
