one of gmc's far flung tentacles has got itself lopped off a program we need it to be in, as well as them filling in the gaps locally, it means i've got make at least three heffalumps worth of effort to help ready them for the inquisitor general, sigh

    Hiya

    Moist roads here also, but I had 38mm tyres so it was fun. Noticeably more people out this morning on bikes.

    Quiet day again I think. The post Christmas lag seems to be dragging on longer than usual this year.

    Yep, -1 yesterday, +5 at 6:30 am today here. Shorts and short sleeved jerseys are back, car started first time :shock:

    Gopping. Foggy, raining, windy.

    Neeeeeed to get out on a bicycle but it's sooo horrid out there.

    Light in office is on its last legs and doing that flashy blinks thing - tempted to whack on some old school drum n bass and pretend I'm in a 1980s badly funded underground rave.

    Morning folks,
    Finally felt well enough to wobble in to work on my velocipede, possibly the slowest ride EVER. Just realised I've only ridden in once in the last month due to Christmas and the plague. I should probably unsubscribe from here and sign up to LazyfatbastardRadar. The day has started badly with too many idiots on the phone, hopefully now that a few more people are in I can avoid too many more and just deal with my idiots.
    Is Stevo under the knife today? Good luck and may the nurses be worth it. We will of course need pictures, of nurses not the surgery.

    Morning all. I can confirm V68 did indeed wobble in, I've seen it on the Strava, the wobbling is very evident.

    Wore my new "thermal" Rapha shorts that I bought in the sale - good god they are comfortable. Feels like you're being pampered by oiled beauties, rather than sitting astride a slightly knackered Arione.

    If Stevo is indeed under the knife, then good luck - make sure they put magic marker on the shoulder they are aiming at.

    Yeah Monday

    Lots of idiots on the road = 2hr plus commute to do less than 80 miles

    Later is yuff club for the kids, so I will be out walking with the current wife whilst wishing I was on the rollers

    On the upside I can have a new woodburner and can get rid of a building pillar in the kitchen, all is looking good!

    I'm still in the office doing some stuff as my op isn't till 6pm, so i'll trotting off Blackheath a bit later. I probably shouldn't have watched quite so many of those major surgery and Supervet programmes lately... Still, it's general anesthetic and I'm hoping that BUPA covers the cost of some plonk this evening as I'm staying over till tomorrow morning :)

    Worst thing is I'm not allowed to eat until afterwards so had to stuff my face an hour ago.

    Good weekend playing in the snow, crampons and ice axe up one of the local hills on Saturday then up to Glenshee yesterday, back to find more snow at home. It had better melt soon as my gutters are starting to fall off, knocked as much off as I could with a kayak paddle last night but as it melts it'll slide off and cause more damage. Might be time to invest in a ladder.

    Having a weird moment of weakness, considering doing a postgrad diploma/masters outside of work. Not sure how they will feel if I suggest it, I don't want to leave but it would certainly open my options if I had a masters, that might convince them to help pay. Might wait a while before I bring it up as I just sent on costs for a new car...

    I should delete my Strava account to prevent embarrassment.

    Has Stevo been under the knife for 3 hours? Have they done the op he went in for or will he come out missing some vital organs?

    I'm back. Bit groggy but still alive. Still got a drip in and could do with taking a leak!

    ...and less work.

    Can't even take the Old new banger for a spin as there is a split in the overflow pipe to radiator. Had to get one form the US. Only $4.16 but 2 weeks wait. It's killing me.
