    Mistakenly booked a meeting in an office far away with other meetings on, so early start to get there and a late return as the parking will be carnage

    Maybe a gentle spin on the rollers later as I need fresh legs for the weekend

    Hanging around waiting for washing machine delivery man. Again, so rock n roll it hurts.

    Weights or turbo? Depends on how cold it is in the garage I suppose.

    Last day before the men with a truck and a big box arrive tomorrow. Packed stuff. Tossed out things. Groundhog Day! Over it big time.

    Morning

    Early morning run
    Train to work, OH also getting the train somewhere for a jolly
    Gaiters and thermals packed for snowmageddon later

    I'm sure the snow will be nothing but will cause total chaos everywhere.

    So do I. How would we get back, do night buses go that way?

    Morning folks,
    Bit chillier out this morning but at least the sky wasn't leaking. Fairly dreary day in the office with nothing out of the ordinary going on. Still struggling to breathe a little but think I'm finally on the mend. Drove in again so I can pick the Mrs up on the way home as she is a few days behind me with the plague.
    Only had 2 cups of tea so far, better turn the coffee machine on.

    "tuesday advancing the cause, 9mm at a time"

    I'm off to put 9 mils in the back of the kneecaps of the twaaaat who "plumbed" in the sink in the utility room.

    Veronese - he'll need more than your bag of plasters for when I've finished with him. He'll need even more than my big bottle of Calpol.

    Whilst us mere mortals will have to content ourselves with egg sarnies, a few cans of Kestrel lager and a kayak.

    Just 'angin' abaat for a seller to get back to me.

    after they screwed the end of my femur back on, the hole was closed with about ten steri strips, much neater job than stitches

    More tedium. Just spent 5 minutes thinking about what to include in the picnic to take on the plane sungod is chartering to take us all to Wheelspinner's housewarming do. Might spend another 5 thinking about champagne now, though to be honest, a couple of glasses is normally enough champagne for me.

    Lovely ride in though - I dropped mini at choir, so was a bit later than usual. It was light, there were dry roads!

    He's such a Webster's dickkkk. Arrrrrgggghhhh. 10 minutes it would have taken him to do the job properly, but oh no, frickin' bodge it and now I have to go out in the foul weather to see Edwyn's bloody son at the bakery/plumbers and get a new u-bend pipe thing.

    I'll undoubtedly end up buying cakes as well.

    Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    Moaning All. On shift again tonight then a few off and a couple of interviews so fingers crossed things seem to be progressing on job front. Big boss still doesn't think he's got problems after another guy gave him a sod you letter and finishes next wkend. Not diving for first job this time, looking for something to improve the old work life balance thing. Hopefully a few rides planned if weather doesn't screw it up to much, if not spin bike and running planned. Enjoy the rest of the day folks, i am It's my Friday.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • Cakes are good.

    Early finish today to go home and do some accounting.

    Day off tomorrow which will end in a headache, there be piles going in!

    afternoon, appears ive started some kind of exodus people now throwing in resignations left right an centre, though this chaps method seems a little extreme
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-42663449

    Anyway theres a tradition of when we leave bringing in treats for the desk, I have sorted this early with three boxes of Jaffa cakes, each box contains 100 of the blighters!
  • oxomanoxoman Posts: 8,852
    Lad that's leaving next wkend is celebrating his birthday today so cream cakes are on him tonight, but knowing him I suspect Mr Kiplings finest creations instead. Tempted to start new tradition when I leave, that's to leave a big Mississippi mudpie on bosses desk. Suspect others might do likewise as well.

    Any will do - just make sure to post a pic on here.

    Pedalled in this morning and now trying to be healthy in advance of my shoulder op next week when I wont be doing much exercise at all, so eating lots of strange green things. Will venture over into Cake Stop soon as it was warming up nicely yesterday evening. Followed by more tax avoidance, just for the fun of it.

    @ Pinno - it's along time since I've heard anyone mention Kestrel Lager. Do they still sell it up in Stranraer?

    It'll have to go on another part of the forum as it's a proper bike. I want something more pedal efficient but that will still stand up to enduro racing...

    ERrr - that links to a story about brothels.

    Freudian slip or does that mean your resignation was caused by "outside parties"?

    Think I've got one in the garage if you want to pop round. Or just cut a disc out of a piece of stiff plastic.

    ...and loads of silicone. Make sure everything you put it on is dry as a bone.

    Those black 'O' ring type seal things rarely go back together (seal) after dismantling the trap.
