    Windy. Really really windy.

    This is a nuisance as I'd planned to do the final tidy up of the garden, mow the lawns and clean off the roof. No point in this gale, and now have even more stuff to clean up.

    Packed stuff.

    Cleaned a bathroom, so that's one more job off the list. Yahoo.

    Now having whisky. May have a second one...

    Morning, a better morning here less wind and dry roads, dog walked, just contemplating where to go for a ride today, out for lunch later and will more than likely have a couple of pints after all it is Sunday.
    Have a nice day

    Jesus - last night turned excessive. Friends a cancelled due to a poorly child, so friends b & c were met in the local and came round. Wine fridge and beer fridge were emptied

    Going for a ride with a pal soon - hilly route planned

    Later is eldest football and then I assume local

    Morning All. Taking youngest to football then family for dinner as OH birthday. I'm in the good books as Dirty Dancing tickets have gone down well with her. Just got to drive eldests lad flying flea as mines got a flat and can't get the Fxxking anti theft undone. Tin of tyre snot coming up I suspect. Work tonight so no bike as 40mph wind and rain due, wonderful.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • Just woke up, hour of cricket to watch then out for ride.

    Looks cold. Checking flight availability to somewhere warmer
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

    Urgh. Tired due to staying up late-ish and then some barsteward car alarm going off at 6am. After yesterday's impromptu trip to the footy, the jobs have piled up and Strifey wants restitution for me enjoying myself :roll:

    Enjoying a bit of peace with Muttley until they are back.

    Done a few chores.

    More stuff to do. Swimming with Toots and mum later.

    What an exciting life I lead.

    Just committed to my first organised sportive in early summer, 102 miles 'epic' version. Target acquired. Training plan to follow. Been a loooong time since I hit the 160/100 mark...

    Weird, I've just done the same. Except I'm dragging my brother, a mate and his brother round the "standard" version of one in Sussex as they all whined about the "long" version, let alone the "epic". I would think that I'll do most of the miles on the front, and will be waiting/crystal cranking at the top of the hills. Still, should be good.
    Just done an hour and a half on the common with the dog. Putting my feet up for 20 mins now.

    Chucked a half shoulder of pork into the oven to slow roast. Sweet potato mash & new purple sprouting broccoli to go with. Looking forward to that later.
    Stopping drinking has dropped my resting heart rate from low to mid 60s to mid 50s. Minimum of 40 overnight.
    Mrs and mini sound like they are making cake. :D

    Home made lamb burgers for :)

    Had to rearrange the June holiday as Stropteen realised that she had to be back home during the week for a 6th form induction day at the school she is probably moving to: we can't move the week so she's now flying back early. Strifey has to go back as well so I have to manage for 3 nights in Cyprus on my own, doing what I want. What a disaster :D

    Pizza and wine at Edwyn's Pzzeria/electrical shop later. Well looking forward to it.

    Considered stopping drinking but decided it was a bloody stupid idea.

    What sort of riding did you mean? :)

    Excellent Stevo! On both counts, lamb burgers and a 3 day holiday on your own. Utter bliss.

    Depends on the weather, inclination at the time and how much left in the piggy bank.

    If it's the mental 'absence' that you are talking about, you're wasting your time.

    was wondering where you were earlier today, you have been missed, bubblecar rally? fell off stairs? surfeit of port?

    how are the tabbies?

    this calls for a holiday before the holiday!

    Evening folks,
    Still iving in a plague house. Think I'm coming out the other side gradually, still coughing and sinuses painful but better than I was. Actually ventured out to a shop to buy some food. The bloody oven packed up and the food shop is being delivered tomorrow so had to pop out for some supplies. Never buy a Smeg cooker, fancy looking overpriced piece of smeg. That's the third thing to break on it. Thankfully the hob still works.
    So Can you Google holiday hookers nowadays Stevo? Where the bloody hell has T47 been? I'm still alive, but only just. What have you entered H³? I need to ride my bike. I went to see if it was still in the garage earlier, chain had changed colour in the 11 days since I last saw it, thought I'd better apply some lube in case I feel well enough to ride the thing.

    I was in Larnaca for work a while back. Hired a bike* from the hotel for 10 Euro and rode over the border for an afternoon for a nosey then came back.
    I couldn't buy anything because nowhere in the single village I rode through accepted Euros or credit card.
    Border guards were pretty confused and they didn't give me a stamp in my passport either.

    The border's a bit of a way from Protaras though.

    That was certainly the first thing I googled. It seems there are plenty in Cyprus.
