    Came back from camping expedition early with kids wet and bikes unused. Kids now bored and me not allowing xbox time, lovely. Roll on later when it drys out, will take youngest out to try his newly modified road bike out. Will be interesting as his first foray into proper sti shifters.

    Hard work getting up this morning, that wasn't helped by the three naked ladies I had last night. Rode in as it's supposed to be a nice day and got leaked on by the sky, then realised I'd forgotten my wallet. Oh dear. Got Wednesday off to take the girl to GOSH in the morning so at least I only have four day week. Just got cake so things are looking up.

    Me eating Porage me. Going to go out on the winter bike soon as the sky leaked a lot last night and it's bloody chilly.
    I am sure the local corner shop can give VN some Ginger nuts on credit.

    Update later.

    I take they are cocktails :)

    Day off today, spoiled slightly by the need to go buy a new kitchen tap and a trip to the bank. May head out to the countryside later.

    Luckily the expensive MK bag MrsHD spied was behind the glass window of a closed shop.

    Afternoon, the morning appeared to vanish in a puff of confusion and business for me. Afternoon hopefully going the same way so I can escape home.
    Only issue is I have the grand total of zip to show for it.

    Other than that debating what to drink this evening as I was gifted an Aspalls six pack with various brews inside.

    Elected to go Norf on the velocipede only to find I had a tail/cross wind. It had me thinking about the very stiff head/cross wind home. In the intervening time period (which I wouldn't possibly share in a dedicated cycl...) about 1 hr 45 minutes, the wind slowly switched round so tail/cross wind home. It was like winning the lottery. Me happy me but slightly fooked.

  • I have finally finished filling in my 27 pages of standard academic profile (CV).
    27 ffing pages, just so i can get a single increment on the salary...
    I now have to fill in the progression form! another ton of bloody pages asking the same ffing questions.
    ARRGGGHHH.

    On a lighter note, I may go home and do it tomorrow.

    Oh that's good. Hope you get the raise and then you can post the graveyard scaffolding to me and i'll lacquer it for you :wink: *

    The kicker is it's cost work about 3k for each person that has filled the form in. Then it'll cost about 2k for each form to be evaluated by a panel, so about 5k per person wasted on a 1k increment, so all in all probably cost work well over £3Million, just because they approved a censored form!
    Still have about 3-4hrs to spend on the application form.

    Decisions decisions. I need to decide between Kopparberg, Old Rosie and Thatchers Katy for this evenings grog. The last 2 are around 7%.

    HRM at its finest. Pity HRM doesn't actually exist.

    Seriously, some very fine wet wet and dry (no, not a duplication) and some alcohol to clean it. It's far more durable than you think.
