    Normal service resumed with cider last night and a run just as I'm meant to be tapering

    Working from home, so local is on the cards

    Taking the later train in due to a slight excess of wine consumption last night. Train is half empty so people are skiving off already. It's going to be a hot one down here in the Big Smoke - may nip out and sit in Regents Park for lunch and soak up a few rays 8)

    Morning folks,
    Glorious here as well, the wobble in to work was a bit slower after the racing last night. I suspect today will either be really busy as a good chunk of them there Europeens had the day off yesterday. Or it'll be really quiet as a good chunk of Europeens had yesterday off and have made it a 4 day weekend. The slackers, I don't think I'll bother coming in on Monday.
    It's the lads last day of school today, so he's being a cross dresser for the day and has gone in wearing his sister's school uniform. He also had in his possession a couple of rolls of tape, a few hundred balloons, party poppers and some silly string. I'd recommend anyone in the area avoid the 'spoons in New Malden from lunchtime. We are not expecting to see him until some time tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully.

    Off to sunny Bridlington for a few days, taking aged mother on her annual hols.
    Be good, :)

    What a lovely day. Lovely ride in, chilled out POET day.

    And what's even better is that I've just realised that today is my last day at work before going away - 9 days off in the sun. Huzzah! Huzzah!

    Crit last night followed by chips, beer, and late to bed. Stealth rest day on the cards 8) would love to be out doing some easy miles though.
  • hopkinbhopkinb Posts: 7,129
    [email protected] myself out by extending my commute to 60km in the glorious sunshine. Eaten eggs, bacon and mushrooms, now swigging black coffee. Going to p!ss off at lunchtime I think, and drive up to Cov to see my mother/brother/sis-in-law/niece & nephew, with my lot following by train tomorrow morning. Then enforced fun at Alton Towers - shuddering at the very thought of it.
  • sungodsungod Posts: 14,366
    lovely out

    had an early ride around regents park, culminating in brekkie two sitting in the sun at the cafe in the middle, the crispy bacon really complemented the scrambled eggs

    Don't go there at lunchtime. I hear there's going to be some right tossers sunning themselves.

    Me going to go on rollers me. I have got to the point where I can just about trust a fart sort of.
    Is it me or is VN on repeat mode as he's repeating himself on repeat mode and I don't know if it's me or he's on repeat mode. Can Step reprogram him? Maybe he's actually a Stepford Husband.

    Update later.

    Shite day at work yesterday, compensated by getting drunk last night and now I'm sitting in a sweltering office regretting it...

    Was glorious this morning at about six, no idea now but appears to be a cloudless sky. sped in on the road bike ill be claiming this new found speed is due to the extra pawl on the hub and that I wore proper cycling clobber rather than jeans no SCR as there was no other sod to race this morning.

    large coffee has been slurped yogurt inhaled and takeaway ordered, now just need to hope I have cider in the fridge for my return, still little under seven hours left so onwards to boredom!

    BOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMM has just gone my right knee.

    Out of the game my sons - non extension, non load bearing Ottawa fail big time. I'm going MCL, but no direct twisting involved - jogged 20 yards on a flat pavement. I blame issue Hi Tecs.

    Stuffed it, big time.

    The piccies he was looking at on his phone screen that made it go hard?
  • MatthewfalleMatthewfalle Posts: 17,380
    Am going to use all 17 years of med experience now and try to start the recuperation process for my knee.

    I think a cold beer and a choc ice may work for starters.

    Could be that, or it could be Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbot. We all know how excited he gets about them.

    Now you can never unsee it.

    Just found in my fridge, bizarrely, an alcoholic ginger beer.

    Now it's in my tummy.

    Not a win as good as this, but a call to the electricity board complaining about the state they left some trees in after they had trimmed them away from the wires has resulted in £100 combo and they are now tidying them up and taking out another tree foc :)

    Have just bought some Birra Morretti so I can pretend I am in Italy in the sun with TDNFNATN and not in clip state Alpha in my back garden.

    Some active imaginations here - the sun was shining on my phone as I was getting a few rays in Regents Park and making it tricky to read :)

    I am in too much pain to even have the traditional cure to all ills - a bag of frozen peas - on my knee.

    I think that this time I have well and truly stuffed it.
