long day in globalmegacorp yesterday, failed to execute early bail plan, turned into late one sustained only by savoury snacks, chips and beer

ride, bang out some hill sprints, though it's bloody freezing out, then back into the maelstrom, ii'm sure maelstrom would look better with at least one umlaut, office, espresso

    Today is the joys of a night out with work, my normal tactic to get through it is to have a decent run after booking into the hotel - looks like I'm stuffed today

    You never know, maybe then returned as clones. Currently looking out onto Scottish hills with light covering of strange white stuff. Might be a bit chilly me thinks. Full Scottish breakfast and strong coffee ordered to sustain me till later. Enjoy your days.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I concur, brass monkeys. I had to go extra fast to keep warm. Couldn't see a bloody thing as the sun was in my eyes so if Garry could lend me a pair of his shades that would be great. :D

    Cold here too and I'm headed North once rush hour has died down a bit, so have packed my fleece. Also the heating isn't on in my folks house, hope the pipes haven't burst...

    Morning folks,
    Bleedin' cold out as others have mentioned, no snow though. I didn't have to go any faster I just had to wait for the heater to get some warmth into it. Needed the car today as I have to go and buy the cakes then lunch with the EPO later. I'm celebrating another year of not being 50 yet.
    Original thread title looked alright to me, strange characters were all in line. Hoping for a quiet day in the office, doubt it will happen though.
    Hope all goes well in the frozen wastelands of the north Stevo. May the A1 and bureaucracy flow for you.
    Onwards and upwards...

    Ta, and yes indeed. At least I've still got all my own hair, although having had it cut yesterday my head is cold.

    Yeah, stunning view of the white hills this morning, probably the same ones you can see but from the other side? I was out running in some pretty heavy hail yesterday evening, not sure if it's actually snow higher up but it's bloody cold nonetheless...

    Office day today, I'll be the only one here this afternoon so I'm ready for a hefty level of dossing

    Thanks chaps.
    There's a Screwfix over the road from us in the industrial estate. An ambulance has just pulled up outside. I wonder if a fight broke out over some Bolle sunglasses and someone's been stabbed with a screwdriver again. Nice area this. :-/

    He knows that. Mr 47b isn't 50 either, he may well be the other side of 50 but that's beside the point. Are you preoccupied with Barbie and chocolate cake?
