    Yeah Friday

    WFH as surprisingly the building isn't coming today

    So off for a run in a minute and hope that the wife has prepared a pig based breakfast

    Later is dad's taxi to the next village for the eldests football practice and therefore would be rude not to visit their pub and then back to the local after football

    Poor sober hop, I feel his pain.... :lol:

    Off to visit the olds after work in Sussex with number 1 son. Might pop into Brighton tomorrow and get ripped off on the pier.

    Happy Friday everyone! :D

    Fark it was hot last night, took a while to get to sleep. Got a conference call with the Kingdom of Far Far Away this morning where I will continue to offer them less than they want and wait for the fur to fly next week as they're far too polite to tell me what they really think on the phone.

    I'm considering bacon after that as a reward to myself. Cider of the rocket fuel variety is in the fridge for this evening 8)

    yay ... dress down Friday ..... means I can stick any pair of shorts and t-shirt on and cycle to work, don't race anyone so I don't break a sweat then I don't need to get changed, or take a change of clothes etc etc.

    then just cycle home at the end of the day .... the joy of sedentary cycling

    Rain, but very warm. No work, but missus away with pals for weekend, so no cycling either.

    Morning folks,
    Drove in this morning but with a bicycle in the boot. Selling the dullest car in the world today so will cycle home, then ready to collect a marginally less dull car tomorrow. Need to bunk extra early today as I have to collect the Mrs from the hospital later. Luckily the Mini is at home so I can use that and won't have to give her a cross bar. The lad is still in Tenerife, hasn't been arrested yet as far as we know. Might go to a pub later.

    first cafe of the day, pain au chocolat and some espressos

    who says it's hot? that's a sign of insufficient time in the tropics, slightly chilly in london at the moment, looks like it could be clouding over, brrrr

    getting a new hawaiian shirt today, will gauge success by mrs s's reaction, it has tigers

    Buongiorno

    New Synapse boxed and ready for collection back to shop to sort front wheel, and get a di2 charger. Should get back early next week, can't wait to give it a go.

    Loving the tour, even when not much going on I get into the strategy and tactics.

    Is there an Orica whatevertheyarecalledthisyear song?

    How much is it, I was looking at Volvo's. Maybe the big jeepy type one. But don't have much to put towards it.

    ^ yep.

    How's the head Hoppy? Where's that lovely swirly post drinking picture we had a while back Sungod?

    Meh, rain here and toots to entertain in backwater town. If you have a look at Dumfries and Galloway, it's like a large intestine and we're the censored .

    I was sober as a judge, and [email protected] annoyed about it. The annoyance will pass by Sunday, and I will achieve a zen-like state of calm and beneficence.

    Cider & Peroni for me

    I don't get hangovers, so the only pain I will get is from leaving home at 6.30am for an off-road half marathon

    FYI, I will now be posting under the name of Susan Jones.

    I have decided to go public with the gender change because there is a much better acceptance and understanding.

    The outcome of that journey has meant that for a considerable time now I have lived as Susan.

    The steps taken over a prolonged period under the watchful eye of the medical profession to complete the transition from one gender to another can be difficult and are always only taken after much soul searching and anguish.

    Please respect my wishes.

    Susan.
