    No1 son currently on time out for being silly about homework. If he fixes up we'll buy a new football and enjoy the 22degrees forecast in the park.

    :lol: I see your BR clock is an hour slow also. Homework commenced after 7, serves him right for waking me up at ten past 6!

    Alright, peeps

    Just had a cuppa, watched MOTD and a chilled day is in the offing. Blew my legs to bits at Herne Hill yesterday so rest day planned.

    Just getting up, sun's blazing through the window. Off to church for christening of latest grandchild, only time I ever go is when forced. Ride out later hopefully, might even drag wife a long.

    Got a call this morning to tell me that my old man has had a stroke and has been taken to hospital. Not good given his age. Headed up North very shortly.

    Sorry to hear that Stevo, hope all is as well as can be.
    Traditional slow start has been enjoyed. Bit of pottering in the garage and garden then off for a late lunch at the 'rents. Might pedal over on the MTB. Can get there almost entirely off road through Richmond Park and then over Wombledon Common. The most surprising bit is that given how densely populated it is around here there are so few people on that bit of the common.

    ^ +1 Stevo.

    Rode a bike today. That's a relatively remarkable thing for me lately. Glorious day for it too.

    Otherwise did SFA.

    Nice way to spend Sunday. :D

    gave up on ride at 102km as traffic back in london was bad, enjoyable otherwise, stoked up with omelet beans and chips at the 60k mark, didn't refill bottle so ran out of water at 70k, gasp

    time to go and laze in the sun now

    Just spent an hour explaining things to Gazza H. if he doesn't appreciate it, i'll have to kill him but no one will mind.

    No luck Stevo.

    Toots swimming now. PR later - wahey.

    As if having to drive oop north wasn't sh!t enough anyway!
  • Garry HGarry H Posts: 6,639
    Great ride that. Tearing up the tarmac along the Tweed valley, rockin' my new Oakleys! I could see riders going in the opposite direction thinking "There goes the one they call Gaztron, I wish we were more like him. Hail Gaztron!"

    Now bacon rolls, coffee and Paris Roubaix.
  • seanoconnseanoconn Posts: 6,743
    Hope all goes as well as it can Stevo and it's a minor stroke.

    lovely up on one's rooftop basking zone, though there's a pesky plane making it's way back and forth across london, presumably another imaging run for google/whoever, maybe i'll show up in google earth again

    temperature back to normal tomorrow, easter forecast looks disappointing

    Best wishes Stevo. My father in law is in he same boat and two weeks post event.


    whoever thought Lincolnshire was flat I can share it's not. It's rather lumpy but has a sterling cafe where they're rebuilding a windmill.

    Hope all is ok, Stevo.

    Spent the day extreme gardening at the country estate, finished, then moving a pot, found this little censored , after I took this photo he was running around with his tail in the air, we stood back and admired him! :shock:

    It's a young one of the big variety so not as dangerous as the adult small ones.

    Yes they are uncommon for the main reason that they are all in the bushes doing each other.

    Oh - they're fine. Nothing to worry about. If they give you a nip just have a large g& t and all will be well.

    Personally, I've had a top weekend only ruined tonight by TDv's visiting mates' brats. Horrendous creatures. Banish them I say.

    In Kenya, if you were in the bush, you always put your boots upside down on a stick inside your tent so that little buggers like them didn't crawl in.
    Also, Hyenas love leather boots and will happily take them away at night to chew on.

    In Wales, if you are anywhere, you always sleep with your boots in your doss bag as the locals like to steal them and eat them.

    Thanks for all the thoughts and kind words guys.

    Unfortunately its not good. The registrar who assessed him said that out of 10 on the stroke scale its an 8 or a 9 (where 10 = dead). Right side completely gone, can't speak or swallow so getting fed by intravenous. He's bloody lucky to be alive, was on the bedroom floor for several hours (judging by the pressure sores) before my old dear woke up and pressed her alarm button around 7am.

    She has had to go into respite care as she's too infirm/confused to be in the house alone for any length of time.

    If I'm a bit rude and obnoxious this week bear with me, although you may not notice any real difference...
