Good cure for your heat wave :D

Going to cycle to the beach for beer and curry lunch (only cycling as its too hot for that walking malarkey)

Went out his morning and put 40kgs of sand in the bike trailer, no problem, now I know what it's like to be a FB, it was fine until the first corner, the trailer realllly wanted to go straight on :shock:

    Tip run done, all be assisted by beldest brat as still no lifting for me. School leavers play for youngest later before he becomes a brat at high school. On a better note check up at hospital shortly so hopefully stitches out and start riding properly again. Eldest brat has also announced he wants to come camping and biking with me and youngest in a few wks time, no bribery required. Weather nice beer in fridge for later all's good so far.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Came back to work from home because the internet in the office was down, apparently its back up again now but the coffee and sausage rolls are better here. Weather is looking OK, hopefully getting up to Innerleithen on the bike later. No work tomorrow either which will be good

    Innerleithen - Gorgeous area of the world.

    Weather's improving but now the usual day planned around Toots.

    Hopefully pedalling later. I've actually racked up some serious miles in the last 10 days.

    Trailers and wheelbarrows are just like women - difficult to pull or push and dead easy to upset.

    Pulverised by the physio first thing. Rest of the day spent building furniture. Perhaps I should do those things in the reverse order.

    Perfect for bikes of all kinds, plus there is a good bunch of younger people living there. I'd love to live over there but I can't quite make it work with our current office being where it is

    Cooked pancakes for the wife and kids then sent them off to the outlaws.
    Rode into work and done censored all so far.
    Counting down the minutes until lunch, it's not curry though, that was yesterday.

    Site visits this morning via the M60 car park.

    Gonna ditch the formal wear at lunch in favour of some shorts and a tee as it's far to hot in the office.

    If I can work out a way to go for a ride later I will but MrsHD has work deadlines for Tax Credits and is slowly sinking in paperwork.

    Sounds like a perfect reason to go for a ride...

    Morning all,
    Slowish start this morning with yesterday's headache compounded with the traditional Thursday hangover. Had to take the girl to physio this morning, physio was pleased with her progress which is good.
    Good ride last night. Beautiful riding back through Richmond Park in the moonlight, it was so bright we turned our lights off and rode by moonlight. Nice view across the city as well. Slightly disappointed they've tarmacked the towpath from Ham House to Richmond, probably to appease the knobby Richmond types that don't want to get their shoes muddy.
    Not much going on in here today, at least I hope not.
    Onward and upward...

    Can't sit here trying to do nothing but drinking coffee all day. Off to make some tea.

    Lunch at the refectory was terrible, some catalan fish stew nonsense.
    Sarnies, crisps and a cherry coke.
    ARGGHH my nespresso capsules have run out!

    Off to Wales shortly - just cramming some lunch down my neck and delegating to the minions to keep them busy for the rest of the week. Pub tonight. Followed by two days of uplifts 8)
