'ning

our own correspondent has related the intelligence that it's nippy out, mindful of this, i shall add extra layers for the ride, and perhaps avail myself of extra cake at one of the many most excellent emporia that proffer such comestibles for the delectation of passing velocipedists

remainder of the day i shall mostly be eating, drinking, and relaxing

    Morning. Coffee and cakes for some i see. I'm off for a run and unlike some will not require arm warmers as runners we are a bit hardier. Tis a tad chilly and moist though. Hopefully chasing young ladies bottoms around 9. On a different note eldest lad has managed to live till his 18th birthday. Family meal and drink laters. Enjoy your wkend .
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Nothing much today. Dog will want a walk. Kids will want supervision. Maybe I'll stick that new chainset on.

    After a couple of days drinking like a stag party it's back to being dry - how boring as I fancy more beer whilst listening to my new record player :)

    Today is kids stuff, then see my mate off then get my kit ready for tomorrow

    Later is a pals birthday party and a shoot sleep as I wind myself up

    Seems a bit OTT. Can't you compromise by drinking a nice red instead?

    Lie in, brekky, coffee so far. Bank, Waitrose and footy later then the evening is stuffed by having to pick up Stropteen from Gatwick. What an exciting day.

    brrrrr, gloomygrey ride, i'm hating the cold a bit more each year

    didn't see the cause, but at regent's park some poor bloke, cyclist from the look of it, was being immobilised for loading in an ambulance, many police, with lots of guns as it was at the crossing next to the us ambassador's bijou cottage

    had eggs and bacon instead of cake

    Bit cloudy and threatening rain. It's been a censored summer and it's already into even sh1tter, colder weather. Managed to curt the swamp reeds... er, I mean grass yesterday but that was only the postage stamp of home not the hectares of PPP. Dunno how that one will pan out. Crutch and strimmers are a dodgy mix.

    Trying to entertain toots. Trying to get a part number for a W202 car part. Trying.

    Laters.

    Spent most of the day emptying shed getting ready for the new one. Means the turbo area is wrecked so need to do an hour in the spare bedroom and see how sweaty I get.

    More of the same tomorrow

    Evening and such, some kind fellow at work wiped out half the office with gastroenteritis hence being quiet on the me front. First day I've felt human enough to be anywhere bar bed an the loo.
    Sent the other half an dog packing to the mothers so as not to infect anyone further. Weekend wasted now etc tomorrow shall be spent cleaning and putting the pace back into some form of order no doubt.

    Why? You haven't got room for anything bigger than a 7 x 4 anyway or are you just dreaming?

    Similar dimensions to Pinno's shed. I think he calls his a 'W202'.
