Grey and damp outside, not very inviting.
Must prioritise jobs to put off. Digging seems top of the list at the moment to put off. Decisions, decisions. :?
I could stay in I suppose and cement my new found friendship with my new BFF over in CS.

Meanwhile, I think I'll put the kettle on.

    Morning folks,
    Grey and moist down here as well, had to drive in as I have to go back and take the girl to school for a while later. Traffic was no fun at all, I really don't like driving. Had a few orders to deal with this morning and only a couple of silly questions so a fairly straightforward start to the day.
    Digging is definitely best avoided friend of Bally, unless you're digging a ditch to put neighbours in. Then it's recommended, although hiring a mini digger is preferable for that. Then I'd have to buy a suit.
    Might wander over for some cake and see what's going on.

    Rubbish nights sleep last night so there was no way a ride was on the cards this morning. Mind you, I sort of knew that before my head hit the pillow.

    Managed to find a repeat of Paris-Roubaix on Eurosport so got half an hour through that, might get to watch the rest later.

    Healthy stuff for lunch, fruit for snacking on, its quite rubbish really.

    +1 on the the sleep HD.

    Bloody nights seem too long for the amount of sleep I get.

    Sleep wasn't too bad, but maybe Monday night wine helped?

    Nothing tonight though as off to Birmingham before 6am tomorrow

    working in hotel room waiting for OH to return from wherever she's vanished to, suspect the pool, which'd explain the lack of response to texts

    another 26 minutes and i'm heading for lunch on my own, too long since breakfast

    Good finish, worth watching. Did you click on 'Videos' ? They usually put it up the following day. It's less 'stuttery' than the live TV.

    Still 'decommissioning'. Minions aren't so good at the irregular, non-routine stuff. Worse, the biscuit consumption rate has gone through the roof.

    Where's Flaneur?! Any ideas?

    A fairly non eventful day here, nothing much to report, my relationship status is a little more complicated than it was this time last week though, in a good way!

    No I just found a repeat of the race coverage from Sunday so recorded it.

    Currently keeping one eye on the BBC weather page and one on the actual weather outside, it's getting better by the hour so by 6ish once the traffic has calmed down a bit I can have my own little Classics ride. The newly named Littleborough-Chadderton-Littleborough will soon have its inaugural running and features it's own section of pave'(ish) the A58.

    Well, I've done it before but never publicised it as such...

    Took the girl home after taking her to school for a bit and the sun was shining and the mercury showed 16'C. Jumped on the old MTB and had a slow meander through the park in the sunshine to get back to work. Very pleasant, at least it was until I got here. Should be a nice ride home too.

    Year end dispensed with for now (until the auditors start irritating us), and it's time to get on the bike and head home soon. A lot of the rest of the week will be taken up with objective setting for the minions.

    @Pinno - Flan is in 'Sith Ifrica' trying to convince himself he's a free man :) Who has to 'check in' every day by phone :P

    Get in there my son! :D I knew you had it you, you sly dog :wink:

    Good sleep last night prematurely interrupted by an annoyed missus, reprimanding me for poking her. I promptly rolled onto my back and kept her awake by snoring instead, ha!
    Interviewing 3 minions this week for a job pinno should really be doing.

    Can't be much of a job if here is only 3 applicants.

    I could send him a tried and tested minion.

    Hang on. They had to work for you and didn't get paid for it? I'm not quite seeing the attraction of the job.

    3 main categories of Minions:

    Long term unemployed minion.
    Addict minion.
    Loon minion.

    ... and then add government agencies who insist they do something for their brew money.

    Shall I put on their CV's - "owns own box of crayons" ? I'll 'sub' them. Payable back in instalments.
