    Morning All. Survived family night out, just. Now trying to get both lads up for football and TKD competition, joy of joys. Grumpy sods. Work tonight oh lovely. Very grey outside.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    And I thought that I led an exciting life :) Kids are no use there anyway as council rules say rugrats need to stay in the car. Luckily by next week mine will be allowed to make herself useful down the tip.

    Slow start as Stropteen was knackered after her Berlin trip. Footy and jobs beckon, with maybe some more coffee & hound walking.

    Morning crowd.

    The Date is currently suffering through her hangover after last nights dinner. I'm tinkering with the bike after walking the dogs. Out for lunch with my mate and his family, always a laugh with that crowd. tall tales and amusing antidotes.

    Enjoy your sunday everyone and try not to leave the children at the tip.

    Just remove the roof, then you can get the real winter element from the comfort of your turbo

    unrelentingly grey ride, but at least it wasn't windy

    had scrambled eggs and salmon at sloane square, bit mean with the toast though, the area has gone downhill

    at one of the local cafes a final espresso² of the day, plus a free sample of their homemade choc/chilli/coconut/lime ice cream, may go for the full portion in the week

    Afternoon folks,
    Busy day yesterday is being followed by a fairly lazy day today. Bit of drama last night as the wife's stressing about the boy leaving for his travels reached a crescendo at about the same time as his girlfriend's. He had one tearful woman by text and one at home. I'm looking forward to him going because I'm sick to death of the fretting going on around here. At least he's getting away from it, I'm stuck here. Maybe I should go with him.
  • Weekend done and dusted here. After a day off yesterday out giving the motorbike a decent run with a mate, it was back to business as usual here. Cleaned pool. Did painting of more walls. Made and fitted a small filter plate for an external drain. Fixed a loose batten under top balcony. Laid small area of new turf. Woo-freakin-hoo.

    Lunch was the main highlight of the day. Local bakery does a particularly fine toastie, plus an excellent pastry roll with lamb and harissa/almond filling, and very good coffee.

    Now doing tax paperwork. :x

    It was a wasted trip. Apparently, they don't recycle kids.

    Cheers you've saved me a wasted trip taking mine. :lol:

    Time to dig out the longjohns and winter gloves, that was parky out today. Even thought about looping back home for extra layers, but sun peeped out briefly, marginal warms. Is only mid September, is going to be a long winter.

    skinny tyres are best, especially liking veloflex sprinter at the moment, road bikes look wrong with fat tyres

    had a nap, think i must go and buy snacks, wine, and chocolate

  • Afternoon all. Beer and wine trip to civilisation (Belgium) done. French bit was a PITA as the Police Aux Frontieres opened two lanes and then went on an epic go slow with the passport checks. So missed ferry. And then, trying to gain advantage, I swerved lanes in front of UK Border Force, which meant I was pulled over for the check. Another delay, but at least he didn't put the rubber gloves on. And yes, this wine and beer is for us :oops:
    Why do prices only go up in UK, but down in EU land? Not exchange rate, but wine is considerably cheaper this year. Result.
    Must go, Mrs BBGeek is pottering in the garden and has fallen over trying to take a selfie with a pigeon.

    Turns out running just over 50 miles is really painful

    Seriously, but seriously:

    WTAF are you doing? Stop it.

    If you have to go that far either get a bicycle or a Gixer Thou. Running 50 miles. Plain stupid if you ask me.......
