    Cold. So cold. But at least it's raining, which is nice. We haven't had a bit of rain for ages so it'll be good for the garden.

    Cool. It's now hailing, snowing and raining at once.

    No snow here yet, but boy it’s cold out there

    Good walk with hound and eldest, not a rush this morning as I’m working from home

    Later won’t be the pub despite a pals birthday, as we had a beer last night

    Morning All. We've had a flurry of fluffy white stuff overnight and it's that cold it's stuck to the screen like brown stuff on a blanket. Chilling in a nice warm home today whilst everyone is out.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • Pineapples again?

    Forecast yesterday evening was 6 inches of snow overnight (or similar apocalypse). Dry as a bone this morning, -1 on the car thermometer. Cycled in on the road bike and it was almost light the whole way. Only my thumbs were cold, painfully so.

    Karma says something bad's going to happen later.

    pineapple is the fruit of the gods, once changing hands for a small fortune

    though he hides it well, it's a little known fact that ppp actually stands for pinno's pineapple paradise, having fallen into disrepair (ppp that is, not pinno himself, though some may differ on that point), he acquired it and has since been restoring it to it's former glory

    before

    I think Piña is in a worse state of repair than PPP ever was.
    Bit chilly again, not quite as chilly as yesterday though. I can tell because the puddles in the park weren't completely frozen. Wobbled in on the CX bike, I was considering the old MTB if it was icy as flat pedals and fat tyres are a little easier when it's very slippery.
    Was supposed to be out for beer and curry tonight but a couple of the guys have wimped out so it might get postponed again.
    No pineapple in my smoothie this morning, just banana, apricot, mango and a variety of berries. As there was a risk of being too healthy I had some biscuits with my tea when I got in.

    i offset the oats and fruit start with two multi-shot coffees and a pain au chocolat, now feeling a bit sleepy from the caffeine

    Is Schrodinger's pineapple the one where you lock sungod and a pineapple in a box, and the pineapple is both "eaten" and "uneaten" until you open the box? A dual state pineapple, only resolved by observation.

    Bright and sunny, bit chilly, nuffink special though. No feats of scoffing planned today. Just normal Tuesday stuff.

    Just finished snowing here, very nice dry powdery stuff unlike the soden wet stuff we had last week. Still, it'll all turn to ice tonight, it's going to be slightly cold I think. Really starting to worry that I don't have enough wood to last out the winter so I'm off down to the woodfuel co-op to buy compressed sawdust this afternoon. Might have to get the central heating fitted sooner rather than later...

    McNing

    Grey, no snow, hail, rain and randomly no frost on my car but the other halfs has which is right behind it, Socialist ice monkeys no doubt are to blame.

    Schrodinger's pineapple may be missing a chunk as I had some with brekkie, large coffee using a mug you can loose a rich tea/digestive in whole.

    Hoping for some snow later gives me a reason to use the wood burner!

  • We are now officially resident in Tas. Ownership transfer done yesterday, and the container arrived this morning. We had to be here early for them, and it was a spectacular start to things. Stood on my dining room balcony just after 7am, this was the view:
    40080645772_3698c11610_b.jpg

    Rest of the day was spent unpacking boxes till I found the kettle and associated stuff. Assembled the bed for later, sorted the wi-fi network stuff, and now just sitting back with a glass of red watching dusk settle over that view.

    Completely shagged from the day's work, but I don't care.

    Just got back from walking Das Hound and going to Edwyn's Meatery for some rib eye for lunch.

    Cold.

    Well done WS - the new BB lifestyle guru. That's if jealous bar stewards don't put a price on your head :)

    Spent a fair bit of the morning nailing down the new job with the big cheese over in KOFFA and it's now done but don't start for another 3 months yet. I thought this song was an appropriate one for the day 8) :

    Just watching some random stage from last year's Giro as I eat my lunch.

    Looks cold out there.

    None of the previous owners put an oil system in ours, unlike the rest of the village. We now get a big discount on electricity for 25 years due to a windfarm that we can't see so a cheap storage heater system is going in asap before we freeze to death
  • veronese68veronese68 Posts: 22,304 Lives Here
    I can't see any windfarms from my house either, how do I get discounted electrickery?
  • step83step83 Posts: 3,661
    No such luck for me, oil mans coming tomorrow to refill, had an attempted snow flurry dog alerted me to it as she was barking at it.

    Can't I just run some cables from next door an give then a tenner each month to cover my electric use? I have a couple of oil heaters I can use.
  • MatthewfalleMatthewfalle Posts: 17,571
    have had to leave my house.

    its cold. Damn cold.

    Freezing outside, nice and toasty in my place with modern central heating. Feeling like its time to do something really daft tonight. Run time.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
