    Morning SG, easy day today bath and bed in that order. Last night shift tonight. Enjoy your day.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Tired this morning, resorted to putting a sugar in my coffee, weird. Race prep this evening as we are heading up tomorrow after work, desperately need to change my gear outers but packing all our camping stuff might come first...
  • Good Morning

    Lovely day here - cold to start but fine once pedalling.

    Strongly worded letter later on I think to the council - rather than sorting out the dogs dinner of some work they did a few months ago they've now plastered the place with no cycling signs even though it's the only route to get to the cycle path (without a big detour).

    Morning folks,
    Quite a pleasant morning down here, a touch fresh and autumnal but that's hardly unexpected. Thursday morning hangover is not too bad, better than yesterday's at least. Staying in tonight which will be the only night in this week. Am I turning into TLW2? Not much else going on, dealing with more carrier screw ups. One of them failed to collect about 100 parcels last night as we filled their van, then filled the second van they sent in and the third one never turned up. Irritating to say the least.

    After 2 days of charging about, loafing on the rooftop terrace by the pool makes a nice change.

    Morning from the shire, sporting a lovely medication hangover today and a rather rough evening which wasn't pleasant so nil caffeine for me, fruit tea and a banana certainly lacking any form of dunkability there.
    Mutiny is still brewing keep being added to Skype conversations which I leave, safety first etc. Some smart bod updated an AD group overnight wiped out half the remote access users rights in the process, in English someone deleted something they shouldn't now half the staff cant login from home.
    Minimal work being done today mainly playing with proxies trying to see if I can access LinkedIn.

    Here you go all you nork/butt starved Bb'ers. My foot and my current view. Bl00dy irritating voices, and obviously can't lay off the biscuits.

    Healthy lunch today, Ginsters pasty, had to be done only £1. The big question is 1min in the microwave or serve chilled?

    Just swim away quickly exploiting your genetic deformity.

    I have had a stupid idea involving spray paint on some deep dish alloy rims, shall procrastinate an make a post about it later.

    Line manager has just dropped something he has forgotten to do and buggered off on holiday, not sure whether to pretend it's all fine or explain to the bossman and cause a ruck for nothing. Unfortunately it involves bossman signing contracts and things. I'm going home for a beer.

    I have some 38mm deep white alloy rims, plan is mask up a WW1 dazzle camo pattern an spray then a coat of lacquer maybe with a flake on the black sections Bikes black an white so it should work.

    Dazzle camo for reference, I have tonnes of tape as well

    Great ride home, not just due to my speed and passing lots of cars. Stopped in the park to watch lots of deer action. Several big pointy stags either side of the path bellowing at each other and posturing. One of them came very close and was looking quite intimidating. There was a small group of us doing our best trying not to look or smell like an alluring doe. Glorious sunny evening too, unfortunately pictures didn't come out very well.

    Hmmmmm - a euphemism amongst polite society for dogging?

    Hope you had a harpoon handy.

    I survived the secone day at the transfer pricing conference. Thought I would pedal in to work then treat myself to a full English at he conference brekkie as it was only a couple of tube stops away. Dropped into the office on the way back to collect my bike and make sure the minions were behaving. Now home and ready for Friday...

    Just superglued my tongue to the top of my mouth and covered the backs of my front teeth in super glue.

    This may prove inconvenient.
