    Ice ice baby out there

    Today is a quick run and then taking the hound off for its final injection.

    Later is off to the cinema with the kids and some pals to see Star Wars, sure the pub will be involved at some point

    In between will be some jobs

    Car taken in for Service, coffee drunk, annoying brother due to arrive shortly to spend the day with the Bambini but not really sure what to do with them all. Will undoubtedly end in huge amounts of frustration.

    That'll teach me. You see, I have this trunk full of old letters and various paper based memorabilia. Mainly my mother's and decided it was time to go through it and have a clear out... Stirring up the past - great innit? :roll: Mind you, I didn't stay up as late as that old pi$$ 'ed TLW.

    Today will be mowstly trying to avoid doing much except a pedal. Other people may have other ideas. Looks chilly. Might have to wear too many clothes. Rear cable guide on C40 snapped off the frame when I fettled and cleaned it. Bollox. Now it's on with a cable tie whilst a cable clamp arrives. Looks like she will be going in for TLC at Atlantic Boulevard come spring.
    Tomorrow it's 'Ria' from Wickes who will try to sell me a kitchen (seen as there's sales on) for PPP.

    yesterdays slow thawing of the snow has frozen solid over night ... the roads are an ice rink thank Schwalbe for studs !

    The off road is awesome though .... I love the crossing of the massive sheets of ice, that half way across break up and you drop several inches in to water and have to power your way out of it like once of those artic icebreakers

    Morning. Currently stuck at GMC coffee pot seeing as you lot keep drinking it. Not biked today as sheet ice everywhere. May be tempted to get spikes if it keeps on like this.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Woke up this morning expecting an hangover and was pleasantly surprised as I made a pig of myself last night.
    Also surprised by fresh covering of snow.

    In laws off to the airport shortly :D We've had fun but it's time to go. Then the hell of soft play followed by copious amounts of wine.

    Blimey, afternoon already. How did that happen? Wife and girl child are braving Kingston and I’m going to join them later for a bite to eat. Have to visit the rest of the family later as it’s irritating brother in law‘s birthday. I bought him some beer in the hope that I get some. Generous to a fault me.

    Lovely winter's day ride out with elder daughter, during which we both hit our annual distance targets. Good way to end the year.

    Looked at a new Civic Type R today. Cheeky phukker of car salesman said that he didn't think that it was the car for me and had I ever considered a Honda Jazz?

    I don’t think that he doesn’t need a kick in the testicles.

    Seems unfair. He's done you a favour. Civic Type R is modelled on the results of the first day's efforts in the "Origami for the Visually Impaired" class.

    Uglier than a hatful of ar$eholes as the saying goes...

    But apart from that, good plan.

    I think it’s a mixture of me mentioning that I wanted to downsize from the family estate (2.3 litre v-tec) because it was rubbish on fuel economy and a) he had old fart cars to shift, b) it’s Christmas so he has targets to meet to get his yearly bonus so will try and sell anything to anyone and c) he is jealous of my good looks and ripped body.

    Either way he’s up for a kick in the nads.

    I'm with Stevo on this one. Glad to hear that although i'm not going to win any awards for beauty that I do not (and I don't) dribble. At least you got your facts right.

    Hire a JCB GTi and a balaclava from Edwyns and go have a Honda 'fest' and then find and seduce his wife and send him a video of it. Send me the vid first (for editing reasons of course).

    seduce his wife in the bucket of the JCB. I we were classy we could a tarpaulin over us.

    good plan that man.
