    I got it in quick just in case 'the phone rang' :roll:

    Me, ringing around the various contenders trying to get a half decent price on Aluminium me (for the last time).

    Must have another coffee. Green Porage production is beginning to abate.

    Laters.

    It's true I'm a slacker, but if I actually worked hard I'd just make all the others look even worse. I've only taken a little more than double what anyone else has done this month. Bunking off at 1 today to take the girl to physio, not worth coming back by the time I've done that so I'll go home and chill. Another night on the beer and curry tonight, I wonder how Fluffer enjoyed his evening with argumentative lycra types. Just had a dog roll with onions and brown sauce, delicious.

    I hope you all enjoyed your summer slackers because somewhere thataway ---> across Europe I was sat shivering watching it piddle down with rain.

    And paid for the privilage.

    went for a ride last night which I wanted to avoid, i wanted to avoid it so much I'd done a weight session at 5. Got wet through but at least it was warm, dumped the bike at my old house so as not to get the light coloured carpets filthy in the new flat.

    Morning of work, shock I know, now giro, missed the last 10k yday, god I want sunshine.

    Summer holiday locations please, time is end of august, budget - prob not French Poly but Bali/Africa/Europe etc all plausible.

    May go back to deal with club censored later, may not. Lunch is soon

    it was just a meteorological anomaly, currently on the second day of cloud and rain at this end of the uk, temperature falling, possible new ice age, etc.
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    Not really. It's the after effects of a Shish Kebab with Chilli sauce from the 'Istanbul'*.

    Afternoon wasters and pretend workers :)

    Busy day today when our rather conservative head office the Kingdom of Far Far Away found out that some companies with the same name as our Group had turned up in the Panama papers. Cue panic trying to find out if they were ours or if someone was just using our name in vain...t'was the latter but jeez they know how to get into a flap.

    Will pedal home shortly and hopefully not get too moist like this morning.
