Well I have been for a bike ride first.

Sofa and soccer for the next few hours followed by I don't really know, hopefully good food and wine but as wifey is on an economy drive things are not looking too hopeful.

Assume you've all gone cycling as its so quiet on here.

    Would love to be out cycling but stripping wallpaper :(

    Also had to change the battery on the clock, which would be nice if it wasn't on the outside wall circa 20ft high

    Did have a nice 5k park run with the eldest and out for dinner with friends later

    I think the kids had put an old battery back in the battery box, looks like I'm changing the clock battery again tomorrow :(

    Yeah, nice try TLW.

    Sitting down - spot on. Sitting down doing the end of year accounts that probably no one will look at.

    So it made the accounts x amount too much and I couldn't figure out the discrepancy.. Got payment for steel?! When it's worth £0 after transport.
    Then it got me thinking. I had given the bloke some business with another company. Thanks mate, nice one.
    Reversed into a man who was delivering to the local pharmacy. :roll: I carried some of the stuff that was on his sack truck in for him. Cute pharmacy woman says "You're delivering this?!" and then I told her that I had run him over - which caused a muted laugh. I asked him if he was okay and he said he was more worried about my car - my indicator and reverse lights were on. so I guess he felt he was partly responsible. I told him not to as it will be scrapped soon.

    Crazy week. Crazy day.

    Laters.
