    Morning all,
    A bit blowy today and I haven't had a curry since last week. Bit tired after a poor nights kip which isn't helping and now my computer won't let me into my emails. Went to tell the guy in IT and he told me he doesn't start for another 45 minutes. So I'm sat here twiddling my thumbs knowing there's an order for about £10k sitting in my emails, the warehouse are waiting for said order. I'm sure it will all be fine but I'm tired and in a bad mood so I might have to beat someone senseless with a lever arm shock absorber. Boy has gone for an interview at Southampton Uni today. I shall be going to the pub later, might be a messy one after last night's news. I think I will be listening to the Alabama 3 today in memory of her.

    I've seen your car. It would be faster by bike.

  • 5K run this morning before work went suprisingly well considrering I haven't worn running shoes in a while.

    Good moaning folks, wife dropped off at work, youngest blown into school by the wind and eldest slobbing as off college. Might be sticking L plates on car later if he behaves. Must remember the valium first. Going out for a quick blast on cyclecross bike shortly before Doris hits us properly. Dad's taxi laters for the family for various reasons. Enjoy your days peeps.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    morning ladies and tossers.

    Sean - T47b would be less likely to melt on the bike too. Hypo could be a different issue mind

    Late started after having a trail run this morning, joys of the new house being smack in the middle of my 5/10k training run. Was going to stay late in work but my mother just text me to inform me she has just landed, Dunno if it was a fact, or a subtle hint that her fridge will be empty and she wants some typical food after 6 weeks in West Africa. No food at my place so Date will have to go shop or it will be an eat out affair!

    If he's heading south, he'll take a week. It's blowing a hoolie out there. Mind you, he'll be back in about an hour.

    It's getting warmer and lighter these days, which is good as I can take Muttley for his morning dump without freezing and can see what to pick up afterwards.

    Work slightly saner today and only 2.5 days to go before I clear the desks and hand over to the minions :) Now enjoying a rather hot sweet chilli chicken and rice.

    T'noon, quiet day for me seeing as ive picked both the bugs going round so sporting a nice cold an stomach bug so fun day for me.
    Spend some money on non cycling items an still the other half is annoyed. New TV as ours developed a pink band down one side, plus side she can now watch Eastenders in HD (wooo) an my own PC went pop last night nuking the board and case controls so bought a new much much smaller case board an CPU.

    Meh, onward to a short afternoon hiding from responsibility, also my blueberries have gone squishy which is not pleasant.

    I thought you'd need to know as you're meant to be in your burrow until springtime - or until you run out of cheap red wine :wink:

    I know, it was 18c down at the coast and yes 13c at the top of Foia, had to wear a second fleece, it was grey, cloudy, misty, in fact it reminded me of The Black Mountains only it wasn't raining :D

    When we went up Foia - rain, wind, 10 deg c, it was like Scotland on a good day.
    Great cake though. What was it, some Almond concoction?

    Not a big expert on cake but I'm guessing Bolo de amêndoa :wink:

    Sorry mikey not wishing to relegate your big news to somewhere beneath a cake :D

    Cake will definitely help the move.

    I expect more from you stevo. A gentle kick up the @rse to get the quality back. You're welcome.

    Thank you. I'd missed that one. Sad news indeed.

    I used to take my son to nursery on the train, gregarious little censored that he is, he soon developed a circle of train friends who got on the same carriage in the mornings. He doesn't get the train with me anymore but I still have his train friends. It's all very innocent.
