    Morning, better start to the day no frost or cold winds, Tigger has had his walk, I’m now being fed and coffeed ( if there’s is such a word) bike ride later.

    Coughing, probably cheese and alcohol withdrawal rather than manflu. Espresso and the ride to work should sort it. At least then I can cough on my colleagues.
    Rode to Croydon last night to collect car from MOT. There's a lot of traffic in Croydon.

    On the train this morning, got a meeting with the boss then its time to sign off our quarterly numbers.

    And its out for a beer or two tonight once its all done and dusted.

    We must have an unusual dog as he'd never want to go for walk early in the morning. After I took him for a p1ss in the garden he nicked upstairs and went to sleep on the bed. Lazy bloody hound :)

    Morning,

    Cycled part way to work. Traffic terrible again despite leaving earlier.
    Above freezing? Toastie warm I thought, until I went outside. I'd warmed up after 20 mins pedalling (total ride was 25 minutes).

    It's only me in the office yet, no idea where everyone else is. Maybe the monsters got them.

    ah, the black road gloop is back ... every year about this time, when the mist comes in and everything get wet, but there is no rain to wash the roads, a black slimy grease film builds up in the city and the bike get covered in it.

    Its the one time of the year I make sure not to choose the disk brake bikes as the instant contamination of black sludge turns the brakes in to honking geese until you buy new pads :|

    Or as I found out this morning, makes it seem like someone greased the roads.

    Morning folks,
    Still plague ridden, but trying to carry on as normal. Well, as normal as I ever am. Drove in again as still absolutely no energy. Have already had phone calls from idiots, this is not good. The problem is if we vetted our customers to weed out the idiots we'd be out of business in no time at all.
    Looks like Stevo has the only sensible dog of the BB doggers. My bike isn't covered in black sludge as I haven't ridden it in a week.

    Morning from GMC coffee pot. Gentle bumble into.work again, slightly damp. Still feeling deeply unmotivated. Oh well.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Mine has got too lazy to even go in the garden and p!sses on a manky old bathmat if caught short in the middle of the night. Making her go out for a p!ss before bed is a right palaver - she just looks at me.

    I thought you stormed off in a huff oxo? Are you having to work your notice?
  • Morning class, I thought an alcohol free night was meant to leave you fresh as a daisy the following morning. I feel like a daisy that's been trodden on, repeatedly then had its petals ripped off by a four year old child.

    Oh well, one sleep closer to skiing!

    He's suffering from depression, so that's down to you.

    Foggy, chilly, slightly breezy.

    All coffeed and doughnutted up me. Didn't bump into beamforming microwave oven magnetron's in Morrison's this morning.

    Laters.

    Morningish, the flood of office plebs was strong this morning, I wasn't physically in the building and was being asked why someone could download a webex file when they have neither the rights to download nor actually have webex installed.
    Roll on the 2nd is all I can say!

    Coffee slurped, Jaffa cakes consumed. now to fashion some kind of weapon to fend off future pleb invasions.

    Close - he spends most of the day with Strifey, so it's understandable.

    Now there's an idea - just need to substitute 'wife' for 'bathmat' :)

    No you wouldn't. They are a pain in that arrrse. Like children apart from the fact that you can't lock them in the coal cellar when they get too noisy/annoying.

    No you wouldn't. They are a pain in that arrrse. Like children apart from the fact that a dog is always pleased to see you, and doesn't spend its waking life making pointless noises and an unholy mess and then trying to relieve you of your cash to spend on trainers/tracksuits/other low rent bollox, so on balance, better than children

    It's true. I mean. lock your wife and the dog in the shed for a few days. When you let them out, the dog will be pleased to see you.

And when it gets senile/loses control of its bowels/eats your brand new Sambas, the Emperor of trainers, you can take it work and shoot it in the face with your Glock.

    I don't think I would have a dog if I couldn't take him to work or walk him in the woods behind the house without a lead. He switches between zooming mode and lethargy in an instant, thankfully mostly at appropriate times. The trick is to buy a nice dog and not a pain in the censored dog, not that you know that at the time...

    Site visits this morning, office this afternoon. The OH has started panicking about her marathon in May so she wants me to go running with her tonight. My New Year's resolution is that I can only drink alcohol if I have done some form of exercise that day, so daily marathon training below my normal pace might actually have it's good sides.

    Quite gloomy. T-shirt weather for Geordies, I'm wearing my coat.

    Dry but cloudy and cold here at the mo’.

    Threatening but not delivering - but like the Brexit twaaaats and the £350 million a week to the NHS.
