    Morning, it looks like another nice day is on the cards, just drinking coffee and wondering what to do for the rest of the day

    Morning

    Coffee on the stove, cornflakes in the bowl, about to head out on N1 for an hour and a half the family drudgery - hopefully not too many meltdowns today ......

    Catch ya in a bit.

    Morning All. Taking young Oxo out to local trail centre along with eldest daughter and grandson, followed by lunch together. Going to an interesting day. Eldest lad currently en-route to Spain with his mate and mates parents. Going to be a quiet week.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Stevo, enjoy it in the knowledge that your being paid to do it. Make sure it's guilty verdict and off with their heads. If it's an offence against a proper cyclist then they must be hung drawn and quartered. If it's against a muppet on a bso then I suppose you'll have to let them go for services rendered.

    Morning folks,
    I doubt Stevo needs any advice on how to act during jusry service. I suspect he has a little black cap with him for when he orders the death penalty. Actually if he wears that early enough they might send him home.
    Lovely morning here, I've mostly recovered from the excesses of Saturday. Nice wobble in the sunshine to get to the joys of sunny Hanworth. Now got loads of emails and orders to deal with. Deep joy.

    Do your duty Stevo, send him down.
    I have the same opportunity in October.

    Just wandered off to the SCR thread for tales of H³ smashing everything whilst whooshing up CS7 on his lairy wheels. Then I realised it's probably too early for him.

    Nah. I forgot I had an 8 a.m. call with Frankfurters, so wfh this morning. Sedate pedal in later this morning. Smashy smashy on the way home.

    First day back today but not too miserable as I left my workload in a reasonable state before I left. Today shall involve easing myself back into the swing of things, swearing at estate agents and solicitors. Baby making again this evening, 500 million champion swimmers are already in the water.

    Good luck to anyone in the dock today in Croydon!

    If you are selected, stand up and shout 'Guilty'

    You'll be on the next train home.

    On a related note, my mate was called for jury duty a few years ago. He turned up on the day wearing a CND T-shirt and looking a bit crusty, he wasn't selected...obviously.
  • MatthewfalleMatthewfalle Posts: 17,571
    I was selected once and the first day of the trial was the day after I smashed my head open in a racin' incident (no helmets in those days, just cotton caps).

    As I tripped over all the chairs in the court room and bumped into a load of people due to concussion, I wasn't asked to stay......

    Doesn't Croydon have some dodgy tram drivers?

    Used to. I think they sacked him. We did go round that same bend very slowly this morning...

    And the court is near that Box Bar place that Hoppy went to once - at least I'll get fed. Now waiting to to get called in to do my Judge Dredd stuff.

    i've done jury service three bloody times, which just isn't fair, score was one let off, the rest were nailed

    getting to handle several kilos of coke was novel, all plastic wrapped though, only one of the jurors got my charlie joke, other memories are mainly boredom, boredom, boredom, how unattractive the other jurors were, and boredom

    Been there a few times Stevo. Very handy for us on the tram from Wimbledon. Massive choice of different grub. Only been in the evening mind you, so don't know how much is open at lunchtime.
  • step83step83 Posts: 3,664
    Ah Jury service, yeah sat around three days bored to hell then got sent home as they pleased guilty.

    Anyway Monday/Tuesday/confused day.

    Coffee No.2 has been necked, random bit of pastry inhaled and various people insulted an dog has been fussed.

    Office day, went to the shop to buy nice cheese, bread and meat for lunch. Did running this morning and last night, planning a flat ride this evening too, feeling pretty good, just need some red wine for lunch...

    Kinda sums it up. And I haven't been asked to do anything yet. Hopefully will let get out for some grub soon.

    Deck construction suspended today, will do wall cladding instead for a change. Meant I had to build two temporary work platforms for it today. May fall to my death tomorrow if my handiwork is dodgy, but at least I won't have to finish the sodding deck.
  • MatthewfalleMatthewfalle Posts: 17,571
    Just had "artisan made" pasty for lunch in the sun with TDV and Das Hunt, which is nice.

    Now coffee is on the stove and I am basking in the glory of being faster on my bicycle than anything else in this world.

    I may even repair my pressure washer.

    I've managed to latch on to your wheel though MF, and you can't shake me off, and I'm not taking my turn. What's gonna happen?

    Ooof. I've blown up big style, I've had to put a foot down and everything, and chundered all over my handlebars and front wheel. You win MF. You quickest. I need to buy a turbo.
