    Also headed for central London for a free full English brekkie and a couple of hours out of the office known as a Brexit seminar. As I'm coordinating our groups Brexit contingency planning I have to be up to speed on this stuff. Yum yum :)

    If we don't hear from you we'll send out a search party armed with warm pastries to lure you back.

    Sounds like Stevo bottled out of the bike again :roll:

    Morning folks,
    No bike for me this morning, warm and snug in the car as I have to go and take the girl to a physio appointment later. Brexit contingency planning sounds rather depressing, difficult to plan for as nobody has a clue how it would work. I can't help thinking it will be a disaster for us as we do a huge amount of business in the EU. Can I have some warm pastries Seano? We've run out of cake.

    No, there's still hope for you, sungod is already too far gone.

Not back to work till Mon night and then only one night, result. Stuff brexit we will get stuffed either way. Enjoy work folks.

    ...but my mom won't let me...

    Snowing here.
    I think i'll think about doing some work and then think about it some more and then not bother but if I don't at least think about doing some, I might feel guilty.

    Brexit sounds like a cheap knock-off breakfast cereal Aldi might sell.

    I have structures to design, parts to order and stuff to do.

    ended up on the toy rather than the crudder last night, was just handier and I had new road kit to try out. Do need to lower my seat post, may have jacked it too high.

    Cold again today bright morning suspect it will rain so may go watch the football in Hicks.

    Sky man visited yday, said he couldn't install it because he needs to put (and secure) a ladder on the flat roof and needs permission. If I'd been home I'd have just said how about I climb out and you tell me where to drill.

    Working from home today, went out for a bit on the bike early, was pretty cold but quite nice, not so nice now though!

    New frame is "out for delivery" so that is quite exciting!

    Pedalling tomorrow to burn off what I'm drinking tonight :) Although rocking up to a formal-ish event at one of the Big 4 accountancy firms in sweaty cycling gear might not be the done thing :wink:

    Worked from home and fought through the man flu :(

    Went out for a nice meal with the family now sitting in front of the log burner feeling sorry for myself

  • Took a friend out for a cycle who had not been near a bike in years.

    He loved it so I`m having a Hobgoblin gold and feeling all magnanimous.
