    Morning, office day today, I'm putting my aches and pains down to an extremely embarrassing OTB onto a forest road yesterday rather than the distance/poor fitness (not ridden enough recently but I should have been fine). I might get out on site later to take photos of a road which has sunk so the hauliers can't get out...

    No gym this morning, only gonna do 2 days this week. Gonna probably try for a ride later on this evening maybe 10 miles, start to increase it now the physio's given the thumbs up.

    Leftover turkey and sweet potato curry for lunch, the office is gonna stink when I reheat it lol

    2 and a half hours to get to work, grumble grumble. Flipping trains, grumble grumble. Bloody freezing grumble grumble. Want to go home, grumble grumble. Still got a week of this Sh!t, grumble grumble.

    Morning all :D

  • Freezing this morning.

    Busy busy, the last two weeks of this month are going to be hectic, all tax returns have to be in so the last of wifeys clients will be turning up with carrier bags of reciepts to be sifted through.

    Birthday weekend friday/saturday and sunday.

    Then a weeks grace followed by packing for skiing on the 4th.

    And when it emerges from the other side. :)

    Normal Monday blues for me. Good 24 mile ride on Saturday morning, but the legs felt really sore. Usually follow up with a gentle Sunday morning spin, but cancelled that as I was just too tired.

    Due back on the bike tomorrow evening as fiancée goes to the gym on Monday evenings and I have daddy time with our daughter. A good couple of days rest should help for tomorrow. If not, I'll be looking at a week off after this week to try and fully rest up.

    Biazarrely, I've been having trouble sleeping since Friday, so only get about 5 or so hours a night. This doesn't help. Also, our daughter seemed to wake up every hour last night, so that added to the tiredness too. Work caps it all off though as I'm not loving it at the moment.

    You should get a bicycle. :mrgreen:
    Bloody cold so rode the pub hack in, fat squishy tyres and flat pedals seemed like a good idea at 7am. The traffic chaos caused by a burst water main made me very glad I'd opted to ride in. Son's team won the rugby match yesterday, bit of a whitewash, so he was happy if rather sore this morning. Daughter has been sick for a few days, think it's just a stomach bug but on top of everything else it's making things a little difficult. Another cup of tea has just been delivered, should I have some biscuits with it?

    Morning, walked in owing to a lack of car an the wheels for the MTB being in the boot of said car (pro thinking)
    Hydraulic line into the clutch ruptured Friday night so had to towed to the garage yay more expense.

    Yes.
    Sorry, your reply was too slow. But I had biscuits just to be sure.

    Fitting out an old bus for Karting purposes. I was roped into to it by the garage that's fixing my van and going to put the car through the MOT.
    It will need instalment of a double bed, a cooker, sink unit. bunk beds, toilet cubicle and storage area.
    I've done half a double bed but upholstered a new end panel to match which seemed to take forever. I could be a while at this one.

    Laters.

    Spent the afternoon hammering cement and stone in order to find a soil pipe in the middle of a 70cm wide wall, found the pipe, then had to put my hand down around the bend in order to retrieve rubble, luckily it's not been used :D

    Should have ridden your bike ya big wuss :) I did and I've still got all my fingers. Had a few dicey moments on icy bits in the first few miles mind.

    Busy day dealling with visitors from the office aka the Kingdom of Far Far Away. Quite easy when they know way less than I do on my specialist subject. Now chilling and thinking only 2.5 working days left this week :)
