'ning

may or may not go for a ride, looking extremely soggy out there, and cold, also soggy, apparently the current hammering rain will be replaced by heavy snow in an hour or so

perhaps gym instead, though it's late opening at the weekend

no mince pies today
my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    Morning, cold frosty biting wind, snow predicted to fall very heavily, so it might be the rollers for an hour, something to look forward to a pub lunch with a few drinks.
    Have a good day , be careful if you go out cycling

    Watching Blue Peter as there is no way in hell I am going out there.

    Das Hound is gazing out wanting to go for a walk so am sending TDV to do the necessary.

    Will do a weights sesh - going to drink loads of proper coffee and o/d on pre work out to see how fast I can move.

    Morning folks,
    God had dandruff issues overnight, he now appears to be rinsing it off.
    Traditional slow start is being enjoyed, need to go and make another cup of tea shortly. A few things to sort then up to Smithfield way for a boozy lunch, this will almost certainly be followed by more boozing. Must try to get the Richmond loop train out of Waterloo on the way home. That way if I fall asleep I’ll only be going round in circles and won’t wake up miles away.
    Have a good day and wrap up warm. Except Spinner, he’s banned from mentioning the weather and as punishment can have Monday earlier than us.

    Sounds like a top day V68!

    I looked out of the window, and opted out of today. Slush and sleet. Yuk.

    Slushy and a bit grim here as well. The hounded opted out his walk after less than 5 mins out - he took a dump then refused to budge so I let him have his way seeing as its so unappealing outside. He's going round the park & woods this afternoon though as he needs to be tired out like young kids.

    A bit later is a full English slap up late brekkie in Bromley with a couple of mates, so currently fasting in preparation :)

    There was weather today, and it may have been nice, but since I’ve spent three days with near-death disease, I didn’t care. Monday is in doubt too, at least as far as work is concerned.

    That’s no good, I almost feel guilty for saying bad things. Please try not to die to death.

    Afternoon folks, just arisen from night shift slumber to kick eldest out of bed and into his car for winter driving lesson. Currently lots of white fluffy stuff bringing south Derbyshire to a stand still. Work later unless totally snowed in.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Full English after yesterday's club drinking day, ran 7 miles on the a5 whilst my mate used my mountain bike - go some odd looks but the snow was too deep on the pavement. Picked up his car and I cycled back - top fun

    Family is stuck at her sisters in Malvern - so pub soon with some pals

    Update. Son suitably trained in driving in snow, ice and slush. First time in a while he's listened to me properly, no detours into ditches etc. He did swear at me when I took him up a very steep hill with a sharp bend at the top though, he listened and handled it along with pulling up at junctions on hills. Got back home and he said would his boss,s really expect him to drive to work in snow, to which I replied depends on how much you like your job. Upside of scaring him is he's said he will walk if it's really bad. :D Result.

  • Surprisingly pleasant in North Yorkshire today. Done a steady 60km all good until last 15 when I start to lose feeling in right hand. So numb I can barely change gear. Get home for 5 minutes of excruciating pain as the feeling comes back slowly. Ended up sticking my other hand in a bowl of hot water just to help get my circulation going. So glad I never got a puncture or I’d have been screwed.

    Toad in the hole for tea. Magic.
  • MatthewfalleMatthewfalle Posts: 17,571
    Home made leek and potato soup with fresh bread and some vin rouge. Parfait.

    Toad in the hole and a pint of ale sounds good though.

    Toots party went well. Spoke Kiswahili with parents of twins birthday - they're from Eastern Congo near the Rwandan/Ugandan border. Could have picked French but it was still bizarre; talking in a native tongue in a back water town in Jockland.
    Then on to some private toots do at a Cafe run by Magdelena. Had eclectic mix of Polish Christmas games, arts and crafts and food. It was great. Breath of fresh air.

    That reminds me, back to the brexit thread to encourage some to out themselves. If all goes well I might be able to persuade one of them to try and sue me.
