    Pouring with rain here which is nice if you like that kind of thing. Must mean theres a Cricket match nearby today.

    Rain and more rain and more rain...

    Some warm air moving up from Spain next week - so they say. Knowing my luck, Hadrian's wall might impede it's progress.
    I did pedal in the wet yesterday for 3 soggy hours.

    Laters.

    Home today. When the surgeon said "you may have a somewhat sore throat and neck" what he really meant was "you will feel like someone has used you for sword swallowing demos, while wearing a blindfold in a darkened room".

    Can't even have a proper drink because of the sodding pills I've been prescribed.

    Nice day otherwise, and yes a bit breezy here too, but sunshine and 20 deg made it entirely bearable.

    V68 is currently in Italy. I guess they make interesting curries in Italy for V68 to have had this effect on the weather.
    Maybe it was washed down with 6 pints of Grappa.

    Wahey, last day in the office until the 24th so just 'teflon desking' stuff to the minions and hoping nothing else blows up in the next 5 hours although I have one meeting with the Group CFO to get through...

    Will be packing tomorrow and off Saturday. Already stocked up on grog :) The weather forecast for North Norfolk is sunny, warm and dry so makes you wonder what good webbed feet are.

    Having a work/life balance kinda requires you to do some work...

    Sorted - doesn't take that long. Though the female part of the household might make it a longer and more stressful process. I have some contingency cider in the fridge for later on when the inevitable happens :)

    You can't be too careful: there's some very big dykes in Norfolk.

    Maybe you should hook up and buy him a drink. Maybe 6 or 7 drinks. Maybe he'll spill the beans and you can play agony aunt and get to the bottom of it. Maybe.

    Anyway, i'm online for 15 mins then I have a GT World Championship to finish (every race from the back of the grid), so make the most of this.

    Norfolk's a big county - which will probably come as a bit of a relief for him given I'll be there tomorrow afternoon :)

    VLL - are you anywhere near Chelsea on Sea?
