office, but i think i'll bail early

really ought to prep for t'punters, but it's more exciting to wing it, and with the time saved i could service the bb between cafe breaks, i suspect the many months of sogginess have removed most of the grease, want to get it done ready for the long weekend

    Morning folks, no work for a few days, wife at work and brats winding me up. Consolation is I'm going out for a beer later with some mates. Enjoy your day folks.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Ciao

    Glorious day but house infected with other people's brats. Oh well, they leave later today so only a matter of hours.

    Will go into the garage for a bit in a few minutes just for some quiet and peace.

    Ciao for now.

    Morning folks,
    Nice and sunny here this morning, bit fresh though. Struggled to get going after a poor night's kip so was running a bit late and had to drive in. Hardly anyone out on the roads, anyone would think half the population has skipped the country. Might be busy today, I've already had 4 calls from pesky retail customers and we're not even open yet. Hopefully they will stop bothering me now the others have turned their phones on.

    Thread title is a mystery but reminds me of..

    "To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women!"

    Boring slightly chilly day work after a glorious weekend. Drinky poos after work.

    I suspect the missing half of the population will be in bed hungover a solid weekend of BBQing.

    Fortunatly none of my lot have bailed so minimegacorp is running on full steam.

    Monday meh

    Wanted an ease into the week and ended up at full pace straight away. Got a feeling this 4 day week is going to feel longer

    Mongay, Car greeted me this morning with a total lack of power steering so I'm slowly going to develop hulk arms at this rate. That's now booked in for Thursday so no doubt I wont see it till next month.

    Other than that all is well, new coffee machine does exactly the same range as before but in a cup 1/4 size for more money, inflation eh.
    Other than that nothing to report

    They've gone! They've gone! Huzzah! Huzzah!

    And new bb has turned up for the cx bike. 1 day from Merlin.

    CRC couldn't even dribble on themselves in a day. 2 months later I'm still waiting for LBS to call me so I can give them some money.

    Merlin rocks.

    The studio has windows, with glass an' all!

    Spent the day cementing over lime render, seems to stick fine, no horse hair required, now just needs to dry, I think 25c overnight will do it, should be able to paint it tomorrow.

    Then, Wahey! The weekend starts here :D

    Cement render - impermeable.
    Lime render - permeable.

    Does this work T47? I haven't the foggiest, so no trolling here.

    ...and fresh too. The wind is North Westerly and veering East, so you should have guessed what I had for dinner.

    Worse tomorrow, 50 mph gusts. Think I'll drive.

    Cous cous?

    I'm insulted.

    Just plain old Pasta with smoked ham and chestnut mushrooms in a cheese sauce cooked by moi.

    No idea either :D (it will be fine, honest)

    Impermeable to what, we don't get moisture here :wink:

    Extra mature cheddar made in Scotland (funny that). Totally impermeable.

    Actually, it's made less than 1 mile from here but get this:

    The company is owned by Lactalis.
    My Gulag (still does) some recycling for them.
    I teach one of the bosses TT.
    My ex in Stockholm works for a Legal firm that oversaw the takeover of a Swedish company by Lactalis.

    Odd, small world.

    Evenin,

    Long trek back down South after care home and hospital visits and sorting stuff out house related stuff with local friends. Bit knackered, only have to sign off the group tax numbers tomorrow, need that like a hole in the head. Will pedal in to wake myself up.
