    Should really do some jobs around the house but, oh well

    Another Turkey burner of a ride this morning to my favourite cafe for the best commercial espresso I've tasted.

    It's nippy out here as well - at least the Eastern European blokes who washed my car said so. We're off to the brother in laws over in Windsor later for lots of food - unfortunately I'm driving...

    Went for a brief ride along the Basingstoke Canal this morning, lots of frozen puddles and patches of fog in places. Looked and felt wondeful. I stopped to take a seasonal pic for FB and noticed white fluff on my sleeves, looked closer and it was frost. It was also on the fingers of my gloves - this was after 10 mins riding.

    Anyway, back at work for a few days, so must get on. I even have a mini-deadline today!

    Just catching up on laundry, lounging around with toots and building a Lego house.

    Later pick OH up from work than it's only 3 shifts to go for her before the long and inappropriately scheduled break.

    Ho hum.

    laters.

    Morning all, at least I think it's still morning. Feel better than I have done the last few days, my lungs appear to be happy staying where they are at last. Only the occasional cough now. Might brace a small ride later, I'll need refreshment of course so could stop at some form of hostelry. There's a thought.

    Early morning ride back from work wishing I had taken my best winter gloves with me and grateful for my buff. Lots of coffee to warm up. Visiting middle daughter later and her first baby. Italian tonight with OH and the boys. No work till 2017 hurray.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Bike related activity so far today has involved getting the family 2 year old twins out on their Chrissie pressie Strider balance bikes, wearing their won't take them off helmets. Start 'em young.

    Last of the festive reveller guests has finally departed, so para mi es un turbo session later on followed by peace and quiet.

    Is that because the NHS can't afford to pay you for the overtime over the new year and employ some Philippino agency staff instead?

    No, saved holiday and wouldn't dream of working for the NHS. Sadly they are underrated, underpaid at hands on level and mostly led by morons. I work for global mega Corp that pretty much supplies everything you might want to eat or drink. Either way you paid my wages. Sadly back to work on first day of 2017.

    Oh well, I have no sympathy for anything you do or the hours you work. In fact, i'll have you shot just for a laugh. :wink:
