    its coldish this morning, but with a mugginess behind that freshness ..... so at some point this morning its going to get warm.

    based on that ... what do I wear on the bike .. I am either going to freeze or boil today

    Still anxiety is down today .... only exploded once I reached the office ... not 3 times before :D

    I think I'd rather have Slowmart's day given the choices above. Unfortunately mine will be more like Hayden's and Sungod's.

    School run done, in the office, minion made me a brew and brought me biscuits (feel like V68 now). Rugby is on and the second holiday of the summer being booked.

    Cycling later though mate wants me to play golf

    Pretty much Slowmarts, was revealed yesterday I'm moving site to where the morons reside. idea being we can educate them, though I feel its akin to sending missionaries to cannibal tribes in the depths of nowhere.
    Oh well, pack up the desk at some point, only plus is theres a guide dog over there whos very friendly.

    Nice warm commute. Long way home later I think. Otherwise, busy and boring dominates the upcoming hours until I remount the bicycle. Looks like I must remember to put the lights and stabilisers on the bike for next Thursday.

    AKA, 'meals on wheels'. Well, that's what we used to call them.

    Me going to doc's soon. Can't drive for 'a few hours'. I will argue against it as I need to do work.
    Will it rain, will it shine? Can't make it's mind up.

    Laters.

    Pretty much, they scraped the barrel with the bulk of this lot to be honest. They keep sending over printer problems saying they cant see the printer on the network, its a sodding USB printer it doesn't have a network address.

    Weather is very grey today though isn't it I rolled the dice on no jacket today so it will rain later.

    On a school night as well - uh oh...

    Afternoon,

    Just about caught up after missing out on all the action at work yesterday :roll: Home early to pick Stropteen up from her after school activity and do some research on auctioneers etc after working out what is worth selling rather than chucking in the 'rents house. Will cycle tomorrow as I need to work off the effects of a weekend in Redcar.

    Bit of [email protected] day weather-wise here but since I am still on holidays I don't care. Just meant lunch took longer than it otherwise may have as there was no hurry to get to the beach for the afternoon snooze. Did that on the sofa instead.

    Just left there yesterday, 32 degrees :|

    Where are you?
  • homers_doublehomers_double Posts: 6,699
    Just outside Lloret De Mar.

    TBH it's not the Ritz but we were expecting that. It's alright for the lads but I wouldn't dream of bringing MrsHD.

    Roughly the same here. Warmish. Although the wet grass just delays the job and makes it harder.

    It's easy when the concrete was a 10-1 3rd world mix.

    MF has been sent by HM government to get supplies for |Edwyn's Emporium. Peaceful innit?
