uk weather again, sigh

just put bike back together, off for a test ride and cafe stop or two, i feel the need for the jamon iberico y queso toasted croissant at the cafe on the corner to console me, and several espressos

enjoy the day everyone

    Ciao

    Got up, went to work tolerated some signals guys for about 8 minutes then came home. Now drinking coffee having had a fresh croissant breakup and playing with The Hound.

    May clean the bicycle after yesterday's ride later and faff about with rear mech.

    Dull and cool here so we're off to that thar countryside to let the hound loose and get some fresh air. The Bruiser is now up for sale so I'm planing a replacement.

    And here's the t-shirt of the day :)

    My Monday has improved considerably in the last hour.

    Thank you, Aberlour.

    Morning folks, traditional slow start has been had. Back is giving me some grief after spending part of yesterday under the bonnet of the 'rents Micra. Going out for a bite to eat later, the girl is going into Kingston with some friends, big step considering she hasn't done that in 6 months. she's pushing herself to do more which is good. Otherwise a lazy day for me. Coffee pot has just started calling me...

    Stevo does that t shirt say the problem of a nagging wife is solved by landing badly and going OTB?

    It would definitely take my mind off the nagging. And being in Wales would help as well.

    hence the euphemism, "landed on a sheep"

    How many bloody weeks holiday are you having SG??!! Get back to shirking.

    Walls me stripping me. Minion didn't turn up for general wheel barrow duties and isn't answering calls or texts. I guess he's been a naughty boy over the weekend and he's been banged up.

    More hit nails...bang plasterboard...pull nails...bang more plasterboard...hammer...remove nails... tomorrow.

    Van MOT expired on the 9th May :shock:

    Laters.

    oi! i start shirking tomorrow

    today i'm in fuckingwindycold london pondering the absence of summer warmth when it's only three and a bit weeks until the solstice and subsequent enshortening of days

    though i must admit one of my first acts will be to propose that i take a week or three hols august-ish, for my bike is shiny and the call of the road is strong

    Sunny in Shropshire

    Slow start after drinking my body weight in the 'borrowed' VIP passes for the bike race

    Run in to collect the car was painful but needed, since then has been jobs / cycling and the pub :)
