    Just seen big bright shiny thing in the sky, think its the sun. Short ride today as sold a couple of bikes and need to double check bikes before they get picked up. Enjoy work peeps.

  • Yay, its Monday

    Only a three day week ahead for me. Some s**t to deal with this morning no doubt (bloody engineers) but the sun is shining and that makes me happy.

    Morning folks,
    The sun is shining after a rainy day yesterday, typical. The emails that came in over the weekend are now done, but unfortunately the phone calls with silly questions have already begun. Would I go and look at some other push rods and tell him which ones had the most rounded ends? No.
    A little tired after a busy weekend, great night last night at Wimbledon Stadium. It was like being back in the 70's. nothing had changed there since then I reckon. Stench of burning oil and rubber filled the air by the end of the evening. Nowhere to park when I got in last night so wound up driving in as I had to move the car.
    Second cup of tea has been delivered, things are looking up.

    Come to work an I get to enjoy this level of stupid today :cry:

    Morning, slight wine fuzz today as sunday dinner was at ours.

    A ride is on the cards tonight followed by an early night.

    Heals people by itself.

    Parts to repair steth are only £12, but annoying as I have to order them and I need it now. Will dig out spare.

    But $630 for those brakes? Blimey, hope they're good.

    They let you loose with a Stethoscope and we pay for it?!

    Nope SG - though I would have hoped in that event, they could magic up some real hips and boosted the immune system for me and I would request a shag with an alien - just for experimental/inter galactical reasons

    You would, if you'd forked out $630 for them! I'd be braking going up hill, just to get my money's worth.

    This is my good steth that my best mate bought for me when I was working civ div ambulance - actually a tad gutted. I'll get it sorted and all will be well.

    I'll just delve into the big bag of junk you lot have paid for and get a spare that you lot have paid for.

    Hmmmm - examining TDSD with a steth, be it broken or not.......

    As is my want to raise the general level of this forum I would like to point out the etymology of the word stethoscope...

    ...from Greek stēthos ‘breast’ + skopein ‘look at’.

    Carry on :D
