    Working from home as car is in for its MOT. I have a 70 page transfer pricing document to review which I really don't want to do but will have to take the plunge soon. Wish me luck.

    This mornings ride was more a pop than a boom, massive headwind up the big climb and then the same down the other side but at least it was fairly calm along the valley bottom on the way home.

    Got a fair bit of metal to order today and some half arsed report to write from an inspection.

    How did you manage that? Some people may want a top tip.

    Fryday mornings are always busy as we have to get a lot of export orders out for the weekend and we have a van that delivers into Europe that is loaded on a Fryday. :evil:
    Another early start for me and I had to drive in, good news is it's POETS day and I'll be leaving shortly after 2 as I'm taking the girl for another appointment this afternoon. Roll on the weekend...

    Yay, car passed its MOT. The joys of buying Japanese. Have to go get it now.

    It's lovely and sunny out side but I'm sat in my office processing timber measurements and doing mapping, joys. I called off last nights road ride because the wind got up, going for a blast at Ae after work this evening though

    mmmm, lemon drizzle cake made by a colleague's Mrs. She does bake a particularly good cake, and lemon drizzle is the best of them.

    That reminds me - I need to book my car's MOT (and I need cake!)

    Not bad day, bit cloudy, cold and windy outside though.

    Think i may be buying a 2013 Roubaix that's in great condition, damn ebay!

    Remember when me and a couple of mates had Evos, we couldn't be bothered to put the catalyst back in after track days for the emissions test so we put it in the car and told our friendly tuner garage to do what they needed to do. Officially that was a case of putting the cat back in. We suspected that he just stuffed the emissions sensor up the tailpipe of a nearby Nissan Micra :)

    It looks 'orrible. However, if I was to ever stray away from Italian, it would be a Spesh S Works Tarmac.

    I have, it's pretty good. I've been quiet enjoying their Dublin Porter recently too. Makes a refreshing change to normal Guinness, people kept telling me how amazing it is in Ireland and that I shouldn't be too negative. I was there for the week before last with work, it certainly tastes different but I just don't get why they love it so much

    it is that one but i have haggled him down on price, still not 100% sure on it! although my dad said he'd buy the 10 speed bits off it so i can put something better on it.
